Trescothick back in groove
Tour match, Barbados, day one of three:
Carib Beer XI 129 all out; England 121-3

Trescothick failed to make his mark in the first two Tests
Marcus Trescothick bounced back to form with a half-century as England dominated day one of their three-day tour game against a Carib Beer XI.

The left-hander hit 50 as England rattled up 121 for three after dismissing the home side for 129.

Matthew Hoggard took 4-27 while James Anderson, Ashley Giles and Rikki Clarke took two wickets for the tourists.

Trescothick, who had managed 18 runs in the two Test wins over the West Indies, was eventually bowled by Omari Banks.

Having won the toss and decided to bat, the Carib Beer XI lost Xavier Marshall for 19 to Hoggard before former Test batsman Daren Ganga and Sylvester Joseph added 42 for the second wicket.

Anderson, brought into the side along with Clarke, wicketkeeper Geraint Jones, Paul Collingwood and Gareth Batty, removed Ganga for 25.

Giles dismissed Dwayne Bravo for two and Anderson took his second wicket to leave the home side 87 for four at lunch.

Clarke then removed Joseph for 36 shortly after lunch and Hoggard finished off the innings with the last two wickets.

In reply, England lost Mark Butcher (17) and Collingwood (20) before Graham Thorpe teamed up with Trescothick to take England past 100 in confident fashion.

Thorpe was 25 not out at the close, with Chris Read yet to get off the mark.

Carib Beer XI: D Ganga (capt), D Ramdin, X M Marshall, D J J Bravo, S C Joseph, T A Willett, O A C Banks, R Rampaul, D Washington, J J C Lawson, F Thomas.
