Ambris, Vishaul Singh give WI A solid foundation

West Indies A 236 for 4 (Ambris 62*, V Singh 58*, Campbell 56) v Sri Lanka A

West Indies made a solid start to their three-match unofficial Test series against the visiting Sri Lanka A team in Jamaica, putting up 236 for 4 in the 76.1 overs on day one. Much of their progress was down to unbeaten half-centuries from Sunil Ambris and Vishaul Singh, who went to stumps with an unbroken stand of 91.

Given their foundation, the pair will be hoping to push on day two and put up big scores unlike John Campbell, who was out stumped after a patient half-century. Campbell was one of two stumpings to keeper Sandun Weerakkody, who also effected the run-out of captain Shamarh Brooks. He proved to be the most effective of Sri Lanka's players after they were put in to field, followed by left-arm spinner Malinda Pushpakumara who picked up 2 for 62. Pushpakumara was one of eight Sri Lanka players to have a bowl on the day.
