Kyle Hope in tour ton
DERBY, England – Stroke-maker Kyle Hope struck his second first-class hundred as West Indies dominated the opening day of their day/night tour game against Derbyshire, yesterday.
The right-hander notched 105, headlining an excellent batting effort by the Caribbean side which saw then end the day at the Derbyshire County Ground on an impressive 340 for three.
Left-handed opener Kieran Powell carved out 92 to run in to form while Shai Hope (69 not out) and Roston Chase (62 not out) fashioned unbeaten half-centuries, to reinforce their side’s dominance.
Playing in their final tour game before the opening Test starting next Thursday at Edgbaston, the Windies batsmen made the most of the outing. (CMC)
