Windies ‘A’ rebound to clinch win
Sylhet – A half-century from Brandon King, and an enterprising unbroken partnership between their captain Joshua Da Silva and all-rounder Akeem Jordan enabled West Indies “A” to overcome a crisis of confidence and land a three-wicket win against hosts Bangladesh “A” in the second “Test” yesterday.
King hit the top score of 54, but the Caribbean side needed an unbroken eighth wicket of 41 between Da Silva and Jordan to take them past a victory target of 190 in their second innings on the final day of the four-day, first-class match at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.
Da Silva was not out on 47 for the second time in the match, Jordan was not out on 22, and the visitors got that same score from opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul and left-hander Raymon Reifer to seal the deal and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. (CMC)
