Jacobs hands it to A team
FLORENCE HALL – Leg-spinner Damion Jacobs snatched a six-wicket haul to propel West Indies “A” to a crushing innings and 13-run victory over Sri Lanka “A” on the final day of the opening four-day match yesterday.
The 32-year-old finished with six for 27 as the visitors, following on by 152 runs, were dismissed cheaply for 139 in their second innings to fall 1-0 behind in the three-match series.
Off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall supported with three for 53 as Windies “A” ruthlessly disposed of the Sri Lankans in just three hours.
Opener Sandun Weerakkody struck an aggressive 56 and partner Ron Chandragupta, 27, but once they were departed, the last nine wickets tumbled spectacularly for a mere 45 runs. (CMC)
