Edwards happy with pace and variations

Colombo, Sri Lanka – Fidel Edwards said he was “up on pace” and was also pleased with that fact that he “used the variations well” in the West Indies victory over Afghanistan in their second ICC World T20 warm-up match on Monday afternoon.

The 30-year-old pacer is the most experienced bowler in the squad with over a decade at the international level. On Monday he took three wickets in his four overs as the Windies dominated with an eight-wicket win at the P Sara Oval, headquarters of the Tamil Union Cricket & Athletic Club.

Gayle on song on eve of big event

Colombo, Sri Lanka – Chris Gayle warmed up for the ICC World T20 tournament with a brilliant half-century as the West Indies dominated Afghanistan at the P Sara Oval on Monday. Gayle, the world-leading batsman in the Twenty20 format, hit four leg-side sixes and five powerful boundaries in 65 not out off 48 balls, as the West Indies reached 125-2 wickets off 15.4 overs to win by eight wickets.

Windies dominate with ball and bat

Colombo, Sri Lanka -- West Indies fielded a strong squad, bringing back Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and Darren Sammy, for their second warm-up match to beat against Afghanistan by eight wickets at the P Sara Oval in Colombo on Monday. The effect was evident, as West Indies, chasing a modest Afghanistan total, pulled off a win by 8 wickets with 25 balls to spare. 

West Indies pacers Fidel Edwards (3-24), Ravi Rampaul (1-26) and Sammy (1-15) caused the early damage as Afghanistan slipped to 32-3.
