ICL: Indian Cricket League

Flynn and Jerome star in washout


Heavy rain on the final day forced an early finish to the Test at the University Oval. The umpires called it off at 2pm and not a single ball was bowled. New Zealand ended the penultimate day at 44 for 2, with an overall lead of 69. Jerome Taylor rescued West Indies with a counter-attacking century at No.8 and he received valuable support from Shivnarine Chanderpaul who scored 76.

The match was under threat from the start, when rain was predicted to washout the first day. Though play began on time, it was curtailed after tea due to bad light. Daniel Flynn was the standout performer for New Zealand with 95. Rain washed out the entire second day and the opening session in the third. The teams managed a full day’s play only on Sunday.

The second and final Test begins at McLean Park in Napier on December 19.
