Chattogram – All-rounder Raymon Reifer and Joshua Da Silva produced solid performances to highlight the final day of the drawn three-tour match against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI yesterday.

In the final warm-up before the first Test on Wednesday, Reifer struck an unbeaten 49 while Da Silva weighed in with 46 to get West Indies up to 291 in their second innings.

Left-arm seamer Reifer then picked up the only wickets to fall as BCB XI, set 389 for victory, reached 63 for two.

The hosts were tottering on 14 for two after Reifer struck in successive overs but opener Yasir Ali (33 not out) and Shadman Islam (23 not out) consolidated in an unbroken third-wicket stand worth 49.

Resuming from their overnight 179 for five at the MA Aziz Stadium, West Indies lost Nkrumah Bonner in the day’s fourth over before he added to his 80, caught at the wicket off seamer Khaled Ahmed (3-42). (CMC)
