Powell hits ton in warm-up
DERBY – Opener Kieran Powell hit a stroke-filled hundred as West Indies rounded off their preparation for the first Test in style, with another strong batting display at Derbyshire yesterday.
Playing on the final day of the day/night encounter, West Indies piled up 327 for six declared in their second innings to follow up their first innings 427 for three declared.
The left-handed Powell, who missed out on three figures on Friday’s opening day with 92, made no mistake this time around as he converted his overnight 41 into exactly 100 before retiring.
Roston Chase carved out an unbeaten 60 to follow up his unbeaten hundred in the first innings while tail-ender Kemar Roach chipped in with 40 not out and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, 37. (CMC)
