Windies tail wags in practice encounter

 CAVE HILL, CMC – West Indies tail-enders enjoyed batting practice as their three-day warm-up match against a Barbados Select XI ended in a draw at the 3Ws Oval here Wednesday.

Kemar Roach, back in competitive cricket for the first time in nearly a year, struck 44 while the combative Sulieman Benn hit an unbeaten 28, as the Windies were dismissed for 212 in their second innings after resuming the day on 113 for six.

Newly appointed West Indies captain Denesh Ramdin converted his overnight 21 into 41.

Off-spinner Chaim Holder finished with five for 78.

The Barbados Select XI then finished on 129 for two with left-hander Anthony Alleyne hitting an unbeaten 52.

The match is one of two practice fixtures for West Indies as part of their ongoing camp, in preparation for the three-Test tour against New Zealand starting June 8 in Jamaica.
