'Chander' scores unbeaten 161

Worcester, England-Shivnarine Chanderpaul scored an unbeaten 161 to pilot the West Indies to 301 for nine and earn a draw at the end of the last day of the three-day game against Worcestershire. West Indies were 93 for four at one stage of their second innings, only 25 ahead, but Chanderpaul resolutely took the touring side to safety. He faced 310 balls and hit 24 fours, was given effective support by Ramnaresh Sarwan (30) and leg-spinner Mahendra Nagamootoo (22).

Brian Lara failed for the second time, being dismissed for one off just two balls in the second innings after falling for one in the first innings off four balls. He went caught behind by Steve Rhodes off medium pacer Stuart Lampitt.
