Scorecard

Dwayne Smith and Tino Best picked up three wickets a piece as West Indies A trounced Durham by eight wickets on the final day at Chester-le-Street.

Best was in the wickets early when Gordon Muchall edged him behind to Patrick Browne for 5 and James Lowe succumbed in the same fashion to leave Durham in the sticky position of 35 for 4. Garry Park, the 23-year-old middle-order batsman then put on 31 for the fifth wicket with Dale Benkenstein, before Smith collected the first of his three wickets when Benkenstein was caught by Wavell Hinds for 26.

Enterprising though Park (34) and Graeme Bridge (43) were, their challenge proved too great as Smith wrapped up Durham for just 148. This left West Indies the simple task of knocking off 95 for victory which, though they lost Smith and Sewnarine Chattergoon, they achieved with comfort and overs to spare.
