“Windies ‘A’ fall again”


NORTH SOUND – West Indies “A” were once again left to ponder another horrendous batting collapse as India “A” took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match One-Day series with an emphatic 148-run victory yesterday.

Chasing a difficult target of 296 at the Vivian Richards Stadium, the hosts folded meekly for 147 in the 35th over, in a now familiar display of recklessness and indifference.

All-rounder Keemo Paul, batting at no. 10, blasted a 16-ball 34 with two fours and four sixes with the game already gone while Sunil Ambris chipped in with 30 to be the only top order batsman to show any semblance of enterprise.

He and left-hander John Campbell (21) put on 51 off 57 balls for the first wicket but once they were separated, West Indies ‘A’ stunningly lost their last nine wickets for 82 runs. (CMC)
