Young Barbadian right hander, Kraigg Brathwaite, stroked his maiden first class hundred on the second day of the rain affected first ‘test’ against Pakistan A.

West Indies A pushed on from their overnight score of 63 without loss to 216 for 1 on the back of Brathwaite’s 117 not out. Fellow opener Kieran Powell featured in a 91 runs opening partnership before he got out for 50.

The 17 year old Brathwaite was then join by Kirk Edwards (39*) and the pair batted to the end of play. Brathwaite struck 11 fours and got to to the century mark after facing 290 balls.


Coach Hendy Springer was full of praise for Brathwaite.
“Kraigg played exceptionally well for us today. He paced the innings really well and seemed to have a lot of time to make his decisions. The most important thing is that he has batted the entire innings so far and is still not out. He has been patient and has displayed great shot selection. He’s doing well for the team and has put us a very strong position.”
