ROSEAU – Wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh and Darren Bravo hit half-centuries but India, through a five-wicket haul by fast bowler Ishant Sharma dismissed the West Indies for 204 at tea on the second day of the third and final Digicel cricket Test at Windsor Park here Thursday.
Six-footer Sharma finished with five for 77 in 21.3 overs to take his tally in the three-match series to 21 wickets. He got support from swing bowler Praveen Kumar (2-22) and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who took two for 26 to become the 11th bowler to take 400 Test wickets.
Resuming from 128 for five at lunch, Baugh and Bravo batted enterprisingly but the probing Sharma removed the latter, caught by wicketkeeper Mahendra Dhoni for 50.
Skipper Darren Sammy lashed three fours and a six in a 23-ball knock of 20 before Harbhajan removed him as well as Baugh, who was bowled for 60 which contained seven fours and a six off 79 balls in 103 minutes at the crease.
Sharma duly wrapped up the innings after a short break for rain, getting rid of tailenders Fidel Edwards and Devendra Bishoo.
India, with a 1-0 lead in the series, were to start their first innings after the tea interval. (EZS)
