West Indies A 358 and 73 for 3 (Dowlin 40*) drew with Sri Lanka A 359 (Samaraweera 98, Kaushal Silva 42, Sammy 4-64)
Heavy morning rain on the fourth day at St Kitts forced the second unofficial Test between West Indies A and Sri Lanka A to be called off without a ball being bowled. The match and series have been drawn at 0-0.
West Indies A, trailing by one run on first innings, were 73 for 3 in the second at stumps on the third day. "I wouldn't say I'm disappointed," David Williams, the West Indies A manager told Caribbean Media Corporation. "The three days that we played were pretty good cricket. If we probably had batted for another 40 overs we probably could have made a match out of it. But really and truly the wicket was too good, the match was basically heading for a draw."
Williams, who is also a former West Indies wicketkeeper, said it was disappointing that both games were drawn. "To come close in Trinidad and then on this beautiful batting track here, to make 358 and then to hold the Sri Lankans to 359 as well, it wasn't bad effort."
