Wet a threat to Windies

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT -

WEST Indies cap­tain Car­los Brath­waite said his side were so con­cerned about the prospect of “ca­reerthreat­en­ing in­juries” on a sod­den out­field they con­sid­ered aban­don­ing be­fore beat­ing Eng­land in a T20 match yes­ter­day at Ch­ester-le-Street.

Con­di­tions at the River­side be­came a con­cern when Windies keeper Chad­wick Wal­ton, chang­ing di­rec­tion to field a de­flected ball, slipped and jarred his knee. He re­cov­ered, how­ever, and was be­hind the stumps as West Indies claimed a 21-run win.
