Windies in ‘good knick’ for Test

DERBY – Opener Kieran Powell believes the Caribbean side’s strong outing in the drawn three-day game against Derbyshire leaves them in good stead for the opening Test against England starting Thursday.

West Indies batted impressively in the game, declaring in both innings for 427 for three and 327 for six, respectively. They also bowled well to bundle out the hosts for 181 in their first innings.

Powell, one of four batsmen to score hundreds in the encounter, said it had been important for the touring batsmen to spend time at the crease, especially against the pink ball.

“Obviously it was valuable match time in the middle,” said Powell, who also struck 92 in the first innings. (CMC)
