West Indies Fight Back with Bajan assist – Tino Best gets Last Laugh

The Edgbaston Test in Britain lost two days due to bad weather so a result is highly unlikely. However, the feelgood factor generated by Ramdin and Best in their century partnership will give captain Darren Sammy’s men genuine hope for the upcoming one-day series which begins in Southampton on June 16.

The tourists (WEST INDIES) were all out at lunch for an entertaining 426 in the rain affected third Test with wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin (107 not out) and number eleven batsman Tino Best (95) providing the fireworks.

The West Indies started the day on 280 for 8 and lost Ravi Rampaul after just three balls. Ramdin and Best then set about the England bowlers.

The pair put on 143 runs, the highest tenth wicket partnership for West Indies. Best’s knock was the highest ever by a number eleven batsman.

Ramdin, the senior batsman, was put in the shade as he made his second Test century by the ebullient Best.

Barbadian Best hit a remarkable 14 boundaries and one six as he suggested that he could bat much higher up the batting order.

West Indies have already lost the Test series, 2-0, but will take great heart from the displays of Ramdin and Best. {STORY COURTESY THE VOICE, UK}
