Published on December 5, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh -- West Indies Under-19s started their tour of Bangladesh with a big victory over the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s Invitational XI on Wednesday. The Windies scored 263-5 off their 50 overs and then bowled out the home side for 149 off 38.2 overs to win by 114 runs.

Left-hander Jeremy Solozano topscored for West Indies with 72 which included seven fours and three sixes on a good pitch at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. He played the anchor role and was named Player of the Match. The vice captain added 105 for the first wicket with Shimron Hetmyre who blasted 56 off 75 balls with eight fours.

Brandon King gave the innings a final flourish as he muscled 51 off 35 balls – which included five boundaries and two sixes. He shared a fourth wicket stand of 84 off just 67 balls with Tristan Coleman, who made 42 off 52 balls.

The West Indies bowler proved dominant in the second half of the match. Captain Ramaal Lewis led the attack with 3-31 with his off-spin, while fast bowler Jerome Jones (2-17) and Marquino Mindley (2-19) made crucial breakthrough early in the innings.

The West Indies will have a full training session on Thursday. The first official One-Day match against the Bangladesh Under-19s will be on Friday at the ZAC Stadium.
