Derby: Neil Gunter had a day to remember and West Indies 'A' one to forget as Derbyshire beat the tourists by the wide margin of 145 runs with more than a day to spare on Friday.

Needing 252 to win Daren Ganga's tourists were bowled out for a meagre 106 on the third day of what should have been a four-day game. Gunter, 21, a fast-medium bowler did the bulk of the damage with four for 14 after Derbyshire itself had been bowled out for a modest 233. But West Indies 'A's reply got off to a disastrous start when captain Ganga went for a duck, well caught by Gunter off Lungley. And it had still to score a run when Devon Smith was lbw to a full-length Gunter delivery. Only two West Indies 'A' batsmen reached double figures - Dwayne Bravo's 48 nearly half the team's total and the next best score paceman Marlon Black's 16. West Indies 'A's next match is another four-day fixture, against Nottinghamshire, at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.
