WI fight back
OPENER KRAIGG BRATHWAITE’S tenth Test match fifty underscored a positive West Indies reply after centuries from Ravi Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha gave India a strong foothold on the second day of the third Test in St Lucia, yesterday.
Responding to the visitors’ 353, West Indies reached the close on 107 for one, still 246 runs adrift of first innings lead, heading into the critical third day of the contest at the Darren Sammy National Stadium.
The right-handed Brathwaite was leading the fight with an unbeaten 53 and was partnered by Darren Bravo who was not out on 18.
Leon Johnson, in his first Test in 20 months, was the only casualty for West Indies when an error in judgement saw him run out for 23. (CMC)
