Windies draw warm-up game in New Zealand

The West Indians and New Zealand 'A' played to a tame draw on Sunday's third and final day of their warm-up game at Lincoln. The home team who were set 400 to win, closed on 72 without loss.

In a less stellar batting performance than their first innings, the West Indians could only manage 186 batting a second time, having resumed on 53-3 on the final day.

Kraigg Brathwaite top-scored with 88 and Shane Dowrich getting 47 against right arm medium fast bowler Hamish Bennett who claimed 3-50. New Zealand 'A' had earlier been dismissed for 237 in their reply to the Caribbean side's 451-9 declared.

Todd Astle 68 and Tom Bruce 46 getting most runs. Raymon Reifer 2-27 and Roston Chase 2-7 were two of eight West Indian bowlers to pick up at least one wicket.
