LEICESTER, England, (CMC) – West Indies had their hopes of bowling practice ahead of this week’s Lord’s Test foiled by bad light and rain, as only 73 deliveries were possible on the final day of the two-day tour match against Leicestershire here Sunday.
When fading light at Grace Road forced players from the field, the hosts had reached 70 for one with Harry Dearden unbeaten on 42.
The 20-year-old left-handed opener faced 45 balls and struck seven fours and put on 61 for the first wicket with 19-year-old Sam Evans who made 18 on his first-team debut.
Pacer Alzarri Joseph claimed the only wicket, having Evans caught low down at gully by Shai Hope.
Bad light halted play after 1-1/4 hours before rain put paid to any resumption.
WEST INDIES 377 for seven declared. (Shimron Hetmyer 128 not out, Shane Dowrich 108 not out, Kieran Powell 82; Dieter Klein 3-77, Gavin Griffiths 2-70) LEICESTERSHIRE 70 for one (Harry Dearden 42 not out)
