Windies suffer Twenty20 setback

Source -

West Indies were let down by their batsmen as they lost to Derbyshire by 51 runs in a warm-up for their Twenty20 double-header against England.

Woeful West Indies suffered a setback in their build-up to the Twenty20 double header with England next week when they crashed to a 51-run defeat against Derbyshire at the County Ground.

The Windies were missing only the injured Shivnarine Chanderpaul and wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin of their probable line-up at The Oval on Thursday and Friday - but were second best to the Phantoms.

Derbyshire were restricted to a modest 135 for six but their opponents never threatened a serious challenge after Tom Lungley, who finished with four wickets for 11 runs, had struck with his first two deliveries. They were eventually routed for 84 in the 16th over.

Spinner Anthony Botha was the other main destroyer with figures of four for 14 against opponents who gave the impression of being disinterested in proceedings with a series of lazy and loose shots.

The Windies fielded a considerably stronger side than against England Lions on Thursday when they had to draft in five players from league and university cricket to make up the numbers.

The three players who had failed to turn up in time play at New Road - Dwayne Smith, Austin Richards and Lendl Simmons - were all included in the starting line-up.

Play was able to get under way on time, surprisingly considering the heavy downpours throughput most of the midlands, and Derbyshire sipper Simon Katich elected to bat after winning the toss.

Ravi Rampaul, who has been dogged by a groin problem for the majority of the tour, made the first breakthrough when Dan Birch (eight) was caught behind by Simmons, who was deputising for first choice wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin.

Fellow opener Michael Dighton looked in good form and hit four boundaries, only to be needlessly run out on 27 attempting a risky second run.

He turned the ball into the midwicket area off Daren Powell and the bowler had time to pick up the ball and return to Simmons - who removed the bails with Dighton well short of his ground.

The 50 came up in the eighth over but Derbyshire were struggling to up the tempo and lost two wickets in quick succession.

Travis Birt (11) aimed an expansive drive at Darren Sammy and was bowled and then Anthony Botha (six) was trapped lbw by Marlon Samuels to leave the home side on 70-4.

Katich looked in reasonable touch and a square cut for four off Dwayne Smith brought up the 100 in the 16th over.

The Australian fell to a splendid low caught and bowled catch by his Windies counterpart Chris Gayle after making 31.

Gayle collected a second wicket when James Pipe (10) holed out to long-on - but some lusty blows from Chris Taylor carried the final total to 135 for six.

The West Indies innings got off to poor start with paceman Lungley striking in successive balls of his opening over after Mark Wagg had taken the new ball.

Gayle was yorked for four and new batsman Samuels was undone by a ball of full length and trapped lbw to reduce the visitors to five for two.

Derbyshire strengthened their grip when Simmons lofted Kevin Dean's first delivery straight to Katich at mid-off.

And the Windies were reduced to 45 for four when the first ball of Anthony Botha's spell saw Dwayne Bravo stumped by James Pipe for 12.

They never looked recovering as Botha took charge of proceedings.

He had Austin Richards Jnr stumped (25), Runako Morton (nine) taken at backward point and bowled Darren Sammy for one.

Lungley returned to polish off the tail as the Windies were bowled out in just 15.4 overs.

They will be hoping for a significant improvement on Tuesday at Arundel, when they take on the PCA Masters in another Twenty20 contest, before the opening clash with Paul Collingwood's side 48 hours later.
