Kolkata: Nov 14, 2011

 

Gautam Gambhir struck a fine half-century and Rahul Dravid remained unbeaten on 33, as India garnered 132 runs for the loss of one wicket in the first session of the second Test match against  the West Indies at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

 

Indian openers Gambhir and Virender Sehwag showed aggressive intent from the word go, as the two smashed West Indies pacers all over the park to add 34 runs in the first five overs.

 

Sehwag looked in sublime touch during his innings of 38 off 33 balls at a strike of 115.1. He fell to the West Indies skipper Darren Sammy.

 

After Sehwag’s dismissal, Dravid joined forces with Gambhir to take India forward as the two scored at a brisk rate during their unbeaten 66–run stand for the second wicket.

 

At lunch, Gambhir was at the crease batting on 57 accompanied by Dravid, who hit six boundaries for his 33 not out.

 

Earlier, India won the toss and chose to bat.

 

Brief Scores: India 132 for 1 (Gautam Gambhir 57*, Virender Sehwag 38, Rahul Dravid 33*; Darren Sammy 1 for 48) vs West Indies.
