New Delhi: Nov 7, 2011

 

Shivnarine Chanderpaul scored a brilliant century to lift West Indies to 256 for five at stumps on day one of the first Test against India at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Sunday.

 

Chanderpaul was batting on 111 at stumps along with Carlton Baugh on 19.

 

The left-hander stitched a 56-run partnership with the wicket-keeper batsman to rescue the visitors after they lost Marlon Samuels early.

 

Earlier opener Kraigg Brathwaite and Chanderpaul frustrated the Indian bowlers with a partnership of 108-runs for the fourth wicket.

 

Pragyan Ojha stuck to break their partnership when he snapped the wicket of Brathwaite after tea.

 

R Ashwin then immediately dismissed Marlon Samuels cheaply giving MS Dhoni his 200th scalp.

 

West Indies added 90 runs for the loss of one wicket in the 32 overs bowled after lunch following skipper Darren Sammy’s decision to bat first.

 

The 18-year-old Barbadian’s dogged resistance, during which he found the fence thrice, was very crucial from the West Indies’ point of view as India’s spin duo of Prgyan Ojha and debutant Ravichandran Ashwin at one stage threatened to run through their middle-order on a Ferozeshah Kotla pitch that seems to have something for the spinners.

 

After Ojha’s double blow in the first session, which saw him remove opener Kieran Powell and Kirk Edwards, Ashwin bowled Darren Bravo right after the lunch break to put the visitors under pressure.

 

But Brathwaite, along with Chanderpaul, stitched together a handy 87-run partnership for the fourth wicket to steady the West Indian ship.

 

Even as Brathwaite got his runs with nudges and steers through the third-man region, Chanderpaul looked intent on attacking the bowlers, especially the spinners, against whom he was not afraid to go down the wicket.

 

After dispatching Umesh Yadav, the second debutant in the Indian team, for two sweetly-timed boundaries, Chanderpaul took Ashwin to the task, cutting him through point for another four.

 

Brief Scores West Indies 256 for 5 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul 111*, Kraigg Braithwaite 63; Pragyan Ojha 3 for 58, R Ashwin 2 for 79) vs India
