Shimoga: Oct 5, 2013

Opener Kraigg Brathwaite smashed a brilliant century while Narasingh Deonaraine cracked a flamboyant 93 as the second unofficial Test between India A and West Indies A ended in a tame draw in Shimoga on Saturday.

In reply to West Indies A’s 406 in the first innings, India A were all out for 359, conceding a slender 47-run lead to the visitors.

With a result out of question, West Indies A reached 223 for three in 81 overs in their second innings when the umpires decided to call off the match due to bad light around 3.30 pm.

For the West Indies A, Brathwaite top-scored with 104 not out, while Deonaraine delighted the crowd with some aggressive shots during his 93-run innings before he was trapped leg before by Baroda lad Bharghav Bhatt.

Brathwaite, riding high on his two fifties in the series, played a Shivnaraine Chanderpaul-style game, grinding the ball and attacking those landing in the hitting zone.

The left-handed Guyanese batsman did not get much support from Kieran Powell and captain Kirk Edwards as the visitors were in a hole at 43 for two.

It was Deonaraine, who joined Brathwaite at this stage to script a 144-run partnership for third wicket.

While Brathwaite hit 15 boundaries in his 247-ball knock, Deonaraine faced 142 balls, hitting 13 fours and two sixes.

For the hosts, Bhatt bowled superbly to take two for 104 in 27.1 overs, while India discard Zaheer Khan grabbed one in the second innings to make it two wickets in the match.

Brief scores:
 
West Indies A 406 (Kraigg Brathwaite 82, Assad Fudadin 63, Leon Johnson 91, Nikita Miller 64*; Bhargav Bhatt 7 for 113) and 223 for 3 (Kraigg Brrathwaite 104*, Narsingh Deonarine 93; Bharghav Bhatt 2 for 104) drew with India A 359 (VA Jagadeesh 86, Abhishek Nayar 89, Uday Kaul 64*; Miguel Cummins 3 for 58)
