West Indies drew their rain-affected tour match against Essex as they began preparations for their Test series against England.

Fast bowler Kemar Roach took 5-43 as Essex declared midway through the final day on 185-9.

Opener Kraigg Brathwaite (3) fell cheaply and a first-ball duck for Kyle Hope left the Windies on 15-2.

However, Roston Chase (50 not out) and Shai Hope (46) steadied the innings before both sides shook hands.

The tourists begin their three-Test series against England at Edgbaston on 17 August.
