Rain forces early tea
BRIDGETOWN – INDIA were 20 without loss in their second innings when rain drove the players off the field for an early tea on a rain-marred third day of the second Digicel cricket Test at Kensington Oval here today.
West Indies, starting the day on 98 for five, were eventually dismissed for 190 as India, who had made 201 in their first innings, claimed a 11-run lead.
Fast bowler Ishant Sharma led India’s bowling effort with career-best figures of six for 55 in 21.5 overs while middle order batsman Marlon Samuels top scored for the West Indies with an unbeaten 78.
Samuels hit eight fours in his 172-ball knock after batting for 248 minutes. India lead the three-match series 1-0 following their 63-run victory in the first Test in Jamaica last week. (EZS)
