Bravo, Barath prosper vs Leicestershire
Sun, Jun 3, '12
Left-hander Darren Bravo and opener Adrian Barath pummelled half-centuries but Kirk Edwards' wretched tour continued with a third ball "duck" as West Indies made decent headway on a rain-hit opening day of their two-day tour match against Leicestershire here yesterday.
Bravo stroked a typically flashy 66 while Barath finished unbeaten on 53, two innings that helped guide the tourists to 150 for three at Grace Road.
Rookie left-hander Assad Fudadin was with Barath at the close on seven, in his first knock of the tour.
Experienced right-arm seamer Nadeem Malik has so far claimed two for 35.
Winning the toss and batting after rain delayed the start by half-hour, West Indies slipped to 25 for two after Malik removed both Kieran Powell and Edwards in the space of four balls in the ninth over of the morning.
