His fifth ball of the day pitched exterior Liton Das’ leg stump and spun previous to beat the skin edge and brush the again thigh on its technique to Cornwall at first slip. Quickly after he drew an out of doors fringe of Das’ bat however this time the ball fell wanting Cornwall.
Seeing Warrican getting assist, Kraigg Brathwaite deployed legspinner Nkrumah Bonner from the opposite finish however he lacked management and Haque took him for 2 fours in his first over. He then collected one other 4 off Warrican to take the lead previous 300.
