West Indies’ Joshua Da Silva smashed a century against Cricket Australia XI in Adelaide, concluding the team’s on-field preparations for the Frank Worrell Trophy. Da Silva’s impressive 105 offered hope to the tourists just five days ahead of the first Test in the South Australian capital. Meanwhile, Test hopeful Kavem Hodge also showcased his skills with a 99, bolstering his chances of a debut. Despite some concerns, including the underperformance of key players, the tourists managed to declare at 315 for 5, securing a significant lead of 392. However, the CA XI held on for a draw, with off-spinning allrounder Kevin Sinclair taking three wickets and boosting his case for a Test call-up. The West Indies will need to field at least three debutants at Adelaide Oval, reflecting the challenges facing Test cricket as players prioritize T20 leagues.
