Hope leads WI ‘A’ rout
KARUNEGALA – Opener Kyle Hope stroked a sublime hundred and Chadwick Walton, Assad Fudadin and Rovman Powell all chimed in with half-centuries as West Indies “A” ran riot against Sri Lanka “A” yesterday.
They recorded a crushing 109-run victory in the second unofficial One-Day International and clinched the three-match series.
Opting for first knock at the Welagedara Stadium, the Caribbean side savaged the Sri Lankan bowling to pile up 347 for nine off their allotted 50 overs.
Hope carved out 109 off 110 deliveries, opening partner Walton smashed 70 from 57 balls, Fudadin chipped in with 57 from 70 balls while Powell produced a sensational late blitz with 52 off a mere 22 deliveries. (CMC)
