A team looking to seal ODI series
KINGSTOWN—After a four-wicket win in the first of the three-match limited overs series here on Wednesday, West Indies A will be again hoping to beat Bangladesh A in the second encounter today. The teams have been fairly competitive from the two-match ‘Test’ series, which West Indies won 1-0, followed by the two Twenty20 ‘Internationals’ which were drawn 1-1 in St. Lucia last weekend. Now the regional reserves want to prove a point. Jonathan Carter, the talented Barbados left-hander, made a fine, unbeaten 68 as West Indies A chased 183 for victory in the first one-day match at the Arnos Vale Stadium. They triumphed with 5.2 overs to spare.
Carter’s cousin Carlos Brathwaite also had an impact on the match, taking two for 25 with his medium-fast bowling and contributing 16 in a useful sixth-wicket partnership of 30. Brathwaite made his international debut on the recent West Indies tour to Bangladesh. Jason Holder, the tall Barbadian fast bowler, who is a member of the Sagicor High Performance Centre, took two for 42 and scored 16 not out on Wednesday. Justin Guillen, the level-headed Trinidad & Tobago opener, also caught the eye in the first match with a knock of 36. The final game is set for November 27.
