Windies facing another defeat

WOEFUL WEST INDIES are facing another Test defeat despite half-centuries from opener Kraigg Brathwaite and new wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich.

Bajan boys Brathwaite and Dowrich were the standout batsmen in a substandard batting display as the Windies capitulated for a modest 243, replying to India’s massive first innings total of 566 for eight declared.

Asked to follow-on with a deficit of 323 runs, the Windies ended the third day of the first cricket Test at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground here yesterday on 21 for one.

The obdurate Brathwaite, who top-scored with a solid near five-hour knock of 74 off 218 balls, which contained seven fours, was the lone second innings casualty, trapped leg before wicket by Ishant Sharma for two in the first over.
