West Indies scrambled to 220 all out against Boland, South Africa's weakest provincial side, on the opening day of their three-day match yesterday. Their opener Stuart Williams made 55 off 68 balls. Philo Wallace, who has had a disappointing tour, batted No 3 and found some consolation with an occasionally brutal contribution of 44. Floyd Reifer (6) ran himself out, Brian Lara (1) chipped a dreadful drive to mid-off and Junior Murray (8) sent an attempted pull to extra cover. Clayton Lambert and Carl Hooper both made 32. The young Boland side, without any international players and bottom of the first-class and one-day domestic leagues, were 18 without loss at the close.

Venkatesh Prasad, the Indian pace bowler, was issued with a warning yesterday after an incident with New Zealand's Craig McMillan in Saturday's limited- overs international in Taupo. Prasad was found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute when he switched ground in his follow through to impede the path of McMillan, who was attempting a quick single.
