Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

DUBAI, United Arab Emi­rates (CMC): A 49-run stand for the fifth wicket be­tween wick­et­keeper Shane Dowrich and Ros­ton Chase averted a sec­ond-in­nings bat­ting col­lapse for West Indies against Emi­rates Cricket Board Xl as their two­day warm-up match pe­tered out into a draw yes­ter­day.

Dowrich was un­beaten on 52, while Chase scored 36 af­ter the West Indies had stum­bled to 34 for three in their sec­ond in­nings at ICC Academy, Dubai.

Re­sum­ing from their overnight firstin­nings score of 56 for seven, the ECB Xl were bowled out for 117, with spin­ners Jomel War­ri­can and Deven­dra Bishoo tak­ing the three re­main­ing wick­ets to fall.

The fact that they crossed 100 was largely to a pa­tient lower or­der cameo from tailen­der Rohan Mustafa, who was un­beaten on 44 to top score in that in­nings in which six bats­men went with­out scor­ing.

Jonathan Carter fin­ished with 4-30, Miguel Cum­mins 3-26 and Deven­dra Bishoo 2-17.

West Indies top scor­ers in the first in­nings, Leon John­son and Shai Hope, were dis­missed for 10 and 0 re­spec­tively in the sec­ond in­nings.

Carter struck 29 and Jer­maine Black­wood 17 but it was Chase and Dowrich, who en­joyed a work­out with the bat, Chase hit­ting three fours and Dowrich scor­ing six fours and two sixes in his un­beaten knock.

The Caribbean side de­clared their sec­ond in­nings at 173 for 7 to set the ECB XI a tar­get of 306.
