“Solozano and Holder keep Windies A in touch”


TAROUBA, Trinidad – Off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham’s hat-trick, coupled with fast bowler Chemar Holder’s late burst, brought to life an otherwise dull rain-hit day and left the third four-day match between West Indies A and India A intriguingly poised heading into today’s penultimate day.

The 30-year-old Gowtham claimed the wickets of Raymon Reifer (5), Holder (0) and Miguel Cummins (0) as the hosts, replying to India A’s 201, crashed to 194 all out in their first innings at the Brian Lara Stadium.

 Gowtham ended with six for 67 while seamer Umesh Yadav supported with two for 29, ensuring India A secured a slim seven-run lead.

 Left-handed opener Jeremy Solozano carried his bat for an unbeaten 69, while Sunil Ambris struck 43 and Jermaine Blackwood, 22. (CMC)
