Background: The fourth Cricket Test between England and the West Indies. Georgetown, British Guiana, ended in a draw, Mar 15. England scored 295 and 334 for 8, in reply to West Indies first-innings score of 402 for 8 declared.
At no time did the game assume a really exciting shape. Garfield Sobers scored 145 for the West Indies, and Dexter and Subba Row assured England of a draw with second innings centuries, but generally the game was undistinguished.
West Indies could congratulate themselves that Alexander - who batted eighth, and made 33 runs, and Scarlett, ninth, and "not out" for 29 offered stout resistance for tail-end batsmen. On the debit side, pace-bowler Hall, who took 6 wickets for 90 runs in the first innings, was ineffective in the second, conceding 79 runs for no wickets. It was left to veteran batsman Worrell to shine with the ball, he took 4 for 49.
It is now certain that England cannot lose the five-match series: they have drawn three tests and won one. The fifth will be played at Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, Mar 25-31.
