Game Ends in Historic Tie
by: Thomson Fontaine
The West Indies A cricket team ended their tour match against Sommerset with a nail biting tie. Set 454 for victory, Sommerset batted heroically on the final day to score 453 runs losing their final wicket with just one ball left in the days play.

This was one of the more exciting finishes witnessed in a full match in a long time. Earlier, the "A" continued to show good improvement in their batting. They opted not to enforce the follow-on in their tour match after bowling the home side out for 183. At stumps, they were 266/7, and declared with a lead of 453, having scored 370 in the first innings.

Dwayne Bravo top scored with an exciting unbeaten 77, with Ryan Hinds scoring 75. The opening pair of Gayle and Devon Smith appeared comfortable before getting out ot loose shots. Chris Gayle was clean bowled by Matthew Bulbeck for 17, and Devon Smith was caught for 29. Runako Morton played some brilliant shots before been trapped lbw by Parsons.

Ryan Hinds in his brilliant knock scored 11 fours. He and the 18 year old Trinidadian batsman Bravo batted well together, with Bravo demonstrating he has what it takes to make it to the regular West Indies line-up.Bravo reached 50 from 56 balls with seven fours.

Reon King had an excellent bowling spell grabbing four for 48 with some accurate quick bowling. The West Indies A team drew their three day match with the Indian side, which is currently playing a test series against England.
