West Indies tested in tour game draw

West Indies' batsmen missed a chance to find their groove on Australian pitches before their tour game against a NSW/ACT XI was declared a draw.

The visitors were 4-114 in their second innings on Saturday at Manuka Oval when play was called off, the hosts declaring earlier in the day on a mammoth 4-426.

Opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul, the son of Windies great Shivnarine Chanderpaul, made just four after not batting in West Indies' first innings effort of 9-424 declared.

Jermaine Blackwood, who retired on 42 in the first innings, made just one.

West Indies were 4-77 before Roston Chase (31no) and Joshua Da Silva (12no) ensured no further damage was done.

Earlier Blake MacDonald finished unbeaten on 177 after No.3 Oliver Davies had smashed 115 off just 106 balls on Friday in a wake-up call for the West Indies attack.

The tourists will play a four-day twilight fixture against a strong Prime Minister's XI from Wednesday before Tests against Australia in Perth and Adelaide.
