Perth: Sherwin Campbell scored a defiant century on Saturday to save West Indies from defeat within three days, in their tour match against Western Australia.The West Indian opener batted for almost seven hours for his 119 to help the visitors reach 266-6 in their second innings when play ended.That left West Indies just 40 runs in front with four wickets in hand and a full day to play. Making matters worse, one of the remaining batsmen, fast bowler Kerry Jeremy, will not bat again after breaking his jaw in his team's miserable first innings total of 132.Shivnarine Chanderpaul (43) and Jimmy Adams (41 not out) also showed some good touches with the bat on Saturday. Together with Campbell, they helped restore some respectability to the total after the tourists slumped to 84-3, needing another 143 to make the home side bat again.Campbell, who also scored 100 in Tuesday's charity match against the ACB Chairman's XI, was content to play a patient innings and occupy the crease for as long as possible. He shared an 86-run stand with Chanderpaul and added 84 with Adams, reaching his century after more than six hours. He finally departed when he was trapped leg before wicket to West Australian captain Tom Moody leaving Adams to try to save the match on Sunday's concluding day.(c) Reuters Limited.
