Windies facing innings defeat

BRISBANE, Australia – West Indies were staring a humiliating innings defeat in the face after an all too familiar second innings batting collapse left them hanging by a thread on the penultimate day of their four-day tour match against a youthful Cricket Australia XI yesterday.

Trailing by 201 on first innings after watching the hosts covert their overnight 245 for four into 444 all out at Allan Border Field, West Indies slumped to 125 for seven at the close, still requiring a further 76 runs to avoid a demoralising defeat.

Captain Jason Holder was unbeaten on 26 and partnered by tail-ender Kemar Roach on nine, with only Devendra Bishoo and Shannon Gabriel to come. (CMC)
