New Delhi: Nov 8, 2011

 

After dismissing India to a paltry score of 209 runs, West Indian batsmen could not capitalise on the splendid effort by their bowlers as batsmen Kraigg Brathwaite and Kieran Powell were dismissed early by Indian spinners in the second innings.

 

With three full days left, India will seek to dismiss West Indies as quickly as possible to try and come back into the match.

 

Earlier, responding to West Indies’ first innings total of 304 runs, India’s famed batting line-up suffered a stunning collapse as an inspired West Indies gained the upperhand by taking a vital 95-run first-innings lead in the first cricket Test here on Monday.

 

After restricting West Indies to 304 all out, riding on Pragyan Ojha’s career-best six for 72, the hosts’ batting collapsed like a house of cards to be bundled out for a paltry 209 on an unpredictable Feroz Shah Kotla track on a day, which saw as many as 17 wickets fall.

 

It was a combination of poor shot selection and some spirited bowling by the West Indies that saw India’s high-profile batting-order crumble, though, many of them got the starts.

 

Virender Sehwag (55), Rahul Dravid (54) and Gautam Gambhir (41) were the notable scorers for the hosts who found it difficult to negotiate the Kotla track, which offered variable bounce.

 

Earlier, Ojha’s maiden five-for haul hastened the West Indies’ slide from an overnight 256 for six. But India undid much of Ojha’s good work in the first session.

 

A stunning batting collapse has left India in a precarious position in the opening Test against the West Indies but opener Virender Sehwag feels it is nothing to be worried about as the hosts are confident of bundling out the visitors for 150 or less.

 

So an exciting day’s play is expected o an unpredictable pitch at Ferozshah Kotla in New Delhi on day three. 

 

Brief Scores: West Indies 304 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul 118, Kraigg Braithwaite 63; Pragyan Ojha 6 for 72, R Ashwin 3 for 81) & 21 for 2 (Kirk Edwards 15*, Kraigg Braithwaite 2; Pragyan Ojha 1 for 7, R Ashwin 1 for 8) lead India 209 (Virender Sehwag 55, Rahul Dravid 54; Darren Sammy 3 for 35, Ravi Rampaul 2 for44) by 116 runs.
