Kolkata: Nov 16, 2011

 

Pragyan Ojha bagged four wickets and pacer Umesh Yadav three as West Indies were bundled out for 153 in the first session of the third’s day play at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

 

Ojha struck early on the third day morning trapping Kirk Edwards in front of the wickets for 16, but the big breakthrough was provided to the hosts by off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, to bagged the priced wicket of Shivnarine Chanderpaul for four.

 

Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo showed some resistance after India struck early, as they added 46 runs for the fifth wicket to give West Indies some much-needed momentum. But their stand was broken soon by Yadav, who bowled both the Caribbean batsmen in quick succession.

 

Ashwin finished with two wickets for 49 runs in his spell.

 

India enforced follow-on after taking a lead of 478 runs.

 

Earlier, VVS Laxman continued his love affair with the Eden Gardens with an unbeaten 176 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni slammed a century as India buried a hapless West Indies under a mountain of runs to take complete control of the second Test.

 

Laxman produced yet another classy knock at his favorite ground where he averages an astounding 110, while Dhoni struck a belligerent 144 (175b, 10×4, 5×6) to record his first century in 21 months as India declared their first innings at a colossal 631 for seven in the post-tea session.

 

The hosts then dismissed both the West Indies openers to reduce the visitors to a shaky 34 for two before the second day’s play was called 50 minutes early because of bad light.

 

Laxman and Dhoni stiched 224 runs together for the seventh wicket in an alliance that put India in complete command on what looked to be a good batting track.

 

Brief Scores: India 631 for 7 dec (VVS Laxman 176*, MS Dhoni 144, Rahul Dravid 119, Gautam Gambhir 65; Kemar Roach 2 for 106, Darren Sammy 2 for 132) lead West Indies 153 (Darren Bravo 30, Marlon Samuels 25; Pragyan Ojha 4 for 64, Umesh Yadav 3 for 23, R Ashwin 2 for 49) by 478 runs.
