Shiv, Jeffers shine for St Kitts


Share post:

This is what warm-up matches are for.

​West Indies’ star batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul did as he pleased with the bat yesterday, following on from where he left off the night before, to score a massive 183 on the final day of the three-day warm-up match between St Kitts and Bangladesh.

​Playing as a guest batsman for the St Kitts team, the 40-year-old Chanderpaul had few problems against the best bowling Bangladesh had to offer, banging the ball all over Warner Park as his team reached 399 in reply to the visitors’ score of 377.

​Chanderpaul wasn’t the only star of the day as teammate Shane Jeffers also took a liking to the bowling to make 118.

​A win was never on the cards for either team, and the match expectedly petered out into a draw. (BA)

Summarised Scores: Bangladesh 377 for seven declared (Mushfiqur Rahim 106 not out, Nasir Hossain 100, Shuvagata Hom 48, Imrul Kayes 44, Tamim Iqbal 20; Quinton Boatswain 2-47, Jeremiah Louis 2-56) and 148 for four (Shamsur Rahman 46). St Kitts & Nevis 399 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul 183, Shane Jeffers 118, Jeremiah Louis 35; Shuvagara Hom 3-48, Rubel Hossain 3-90, Taijul Islam 3-109). Match drawn.
