Cricket...and in Bridgetown, Barbados managed to force a draw in their four-day match against the touring Australians. The Australians led by 220 in the first innings, and at one stage on Tuesday (14 March), the final day, Barbados, in their second innings, were reeling at 231 for six. The tailenders, however, came to the rescue, and took the score to a respectable 386.
SYNOPSIS: Haynes made a confident start, but then fell leg before to Clark for 40.
Higgs to David Murray...and four runs.
Murray, the Barbados wicket-keeper, was in sparkling form...another four, this time off Laughlin.
Laughlin again to Murray, and four more took him to his 50. Wickets tumbled steadily at the other end, but Murray was batting with a lot of confidence.
Another four for Murray, this time off Cosier, and it was his century. A fine innings.
Murray was joined by Padmore, and he drove Higgs confidently for four.
Murray was finally out for 108. And Holder, the Barbados skipper, added a gritty 40 before he also went...leg before for Laughlin.
Padmore was still there at the other end and another four came off Higgs.
Callen to Padmore, and four more...it was a frustrating period for the Australians.
Padmore was finally out for 79. He was beaten by one from Callen and bowled. With the injured Daniel unable to bat the Barbados innings closed at 386 and the match ended in a draw.
