Windies A Team
 

Russell played to strengths

North Sound, Antigua – All rounder Andre Russell said that he merely played to his strengths in getting an impressive maiden hundred for the West Indies A Team in their opening Digicel ‘Test’ against Bangladesh A at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds.

“It was a pretty decent wicket to bat on so as long as you get in you just have to bat long, be patient and wait on the balls which allow you to play your shots and that’s what I did,” a beaming Russell said at the end of the day’s play.

Playing for Windies helped Hyatt

North Sound, Antigua – Jamaican batsman Danza Hyatt said that playing for the West Indies senior team has improved his confidence and has helped him to progress as a batsman.

“Being around the experienced guys and playing international cricket has helped me for sure,” said Hyatt who has appeared in five One Day Internationals and four Twenty20 Internationals.

He said his time on the international stage has allowed him to pick up good form.

“I think I’m in good nick so I have to capitalize and I need to continue to get the big scores,” Hyatt reasoned.

Russell ton leads Windies A to 352/8

NORTH SOUND, Antigua, CMC – Andre Russell continued his impressive rise with an electrifying hundred that was the driving force behind a West Indies-A revival in their first 'Test' against Bangladesh-A on Saturday.

Russell continued his love affair with the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, leading the way with a typically stroke-filled, career-best 128 that propelled Windies-A to 352 for eight in their first innings at the close on the opening day.

Hyatt 92 as Windies A 202/6

North Sound, Antigua – Danza Hyatt was cruelly run out eight runs short what would have been a well deserved century as West Indies A moved to 202 for 6 at tea on the opening day of the First Digicel Test against Bangladesh at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds.

Windies A lose openers early

North Sound, Antigua – Veerasammy Permaul did not have a bright start to his captaincy of the West Indies A Team. First he lost the toss in the opening Digicel 'Test' then he lost his two opening batsmen cheaply to Bangladesh A fast bowler Robiul Islam.

West Indies were reduced to 11 for 2 Kyle Corbin dismissed for a duck in the 2nd over and Rajendra Chandrika for 9 in the 4th over to leave the home side 11 for 2 on a unthreatening Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground pitch.
