Mysore: Sep 26, 2013

Promising all-rounder Parvez Rasool impressed with a five-wicket haul, but West Indies ‘A’ held the edge as they made inroads into the India ‘A’ batting line-up after being all out for 429 in the first unofficial Test on Thursday.

At stumps on the second day of the match, India ‘A’ were in a spot of bother at 124 for three, with skipper Chesteshwar Pujara back in the pavilion.

The hosts were trailing the Kirk Edwards-led side by 305 runs with seven wickets in hand.

Manprit Juneja was unbeaten on 47 off 77 balls while Harshad Khadiwale was batting on five. Opener Lokesh Rahul made 46 off 100 balls at the Gangothri Glades Cricket Ground.

Earlier, Jammu and Kashmir cricketer Rasool emerged as star of the day by taking five wickets for 116 runs in 45 overs. While the rest of the bowlers struggled to get rid of the West Indies tail-enders, the 24-year-old off-spinner always seemed to be on the lookout for wickets.

Resuming at 264 for five, the last five West Indian batsmen frustrated the Indian bowlers by contributing a commendable 192 runs.

West Indies ‘A’ lost their overnight batsman Chadwick Walton in the fourth over of the day. Walton could only add eight runs to his overnight unbeaten 27 before being trapped leg before by pacer Ishwar Pandey.

Assad Fadudin (86 not out) and Nikita Miller (49) then thwarted the Indian bowlers, putting on a crucial 88-run partnership for the seventh wicket.

Miller was unfortunately run out by the Pujara-Rohit Motwani combo. His innings came off 86 balls and was studded with five boundaries.

West Indies lost another wicket in the form of Veerasammy Permaul (11), but not before crafting a 42-run stand for the eighth wicket with Fadudin.

Rasool then quickly packed off Delorn Johnson (0) and Miguel Cummins (6), leaving Fudadin 14 short of what would have been a well-deserved century. He faced 201 balls, hit 10 fours and a six.

Brief scores:

West Indies A 429 (Kraigg Brathwaite 92, Kirk Edwards 91; Parvez Rasool 5 for 116) lead India A 124 for 3 (Manprit Juneja 47*, Lokesh rahul 46) by 305 runs.
