Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

DAMBULLA, Sri Lanka (CMC): A COM­BINED bat­ting and bowl­ing ef­fort by West Indies A pro­pelled them to a com­mand­ing 165-run vic­tory over Sri Lanka A in the first un­of­fi­cial one-day in­ter­na­tional (ODI) at the Ran­giri Dambulla In­ter­na­tional Sta­dium here yes­ter­day.

Off­spin­ner Jon-Russ Jagge­sar, with a ca­reer best four-wicket haul, led the de­mo­li­tion of Sri­Lanka A for 102 in 32.3 overs, after Kyle Pope posted a ca­reer best 81 and shared in three im­por­tant part­ner­ships that spurred West Indies A to 267 for six.

The new-ball pair of Rons­ford Beaton, who picked up three wick­ets and Delorn John­son, two, set up the vic­tory with early wick­ets that ripped the fight out of the home side.

Cap­tain Ja­son Mo­hammed and Rov­man Pow­ell trig­gered late mo­men­tum by slam­ming half-cen­turies as West Indies A cruised to a one-nil lead in the three-match series.

Mo­hammed’s men re­sumed the re­serve day on 69 for two after rain in­ter­vened with the game just 12.5 overs into the in­nings.

TOP SCORE

Pope, who put on an open­ing stand of 40 with Chad­wick Wal­ton, held his end to hit a top score of 81 from 112 balls with eight bound­aries, his list-A ca­reer-best score.

He fea­tured in three im­por­tant part­ner­ships around which the in­nings was con­structed – 42 for the third wicket with An­dre Fletcher, who con­trib­uted 26; and 63 with Mo­hammed for the fourth wicket.

Mo­hammed found the bound­ary five times to post 58 from 71 balls, while Pow­ell raced to 55 from just 35 balls, hit­ting three fours and as many sixes.

Mo­hamed and Pow­ell put to­gether 89 runs for the fifth wicket and lost their wick­ets in the fi­nal over, after help­ing West Indies A to com­pile 93 runs in the last 10 overs.
