Bridgetown, Barbados, January 13 – (www.barbadoscricket.org) – Jonathan Drakes completed a fine century for Sir Garfield Sobers X1 against Sir Gordon Greenidge X1 on the second day of the opening three-day match in the Barbados Legends Series at Kensington Oval today.

On an easy-paced pitch, Drakes took his overnight score of 83 to the topscore of 171 in a big total of 535 all out off 131.4 overs after the Sir Garfield X1 resumed on 317 for one with Rashawn Worrell on 138.

Left-hander Worrell added only two before he was removed by pacer Akeem Jordan.

Worrell’s 140 came off 271 balls in 357 minutes and included 20 fours and one six. He added 170 for the second wicket with Drakes.

After the dismissals of Marrodon Bend, caught by wicketkeeper Demario Richards off Jordan for 11 and captain Shai Hope, who was run out for 27, Drakes and Demetrius Richards (23) put on 70 for the fifth wicket.

Demetrius Richards, the brother of Demario Richards, was leg before wicket by off-spinner Romario Greaves, who then prised out Drakes and Joshua Dorne (12) in quick succession.

Drakes batted for 303 minutes, faced 230 balls and struck 26 fours and one six.

There were handy contributions from Amari Goodridge (26) and Matthew Forde (18) with the innings ending shortly after tea.

Greaves was the leading wicket-taker with three for 82 off 20 overs. Jordan took two for 57 off 21 overs and left-arm spinner Camarie Boyce, two for 97 off 15.4 overs.
