(Cricket West Indies Press Release) West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite was again a tower of strength for his team as England could not dislodge him in the second innings which led to a memorable draw on Sunday.

Having been set 282 to win in 65 overs after England declared at lunch, the home side recovered from slipping to 39-3 in the 13th over and 93-5 in the 45th to grind their way to 135-5 at the close.

Displaying immense powers of concentration, Brathwaite followed his near 12-hour vigil of 160 from 489 balls in West Indies’ first innings, with an unbeaten 56 off 184 balls in the second, stalling the top-order collapse by sharing a 150-ball, fourth-wicket stand with fellow first innings century-maker Jermaine Blackwood (27 off 84 balls).
