Kolkata: Nov 15, 2011

 

Indian batsmen continued their domination on the second day with VVS Laxman notching his 17th Test century to take the hosts past 400 in the second Test match against the West Indies at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

 

Laxman’s century came in 158 balls, with the help of nine boundaries.

 

Resuming their innings at 346 for five on the second day, Indian batsmen Yuvraj Singh and Laxman continued scoring at a brisk rate, adding 50 runs in 10.2 overs at a run rate of 4.83.

 

Yuvraj, who was troubled consistently with the short balls, fell after a fighting knock 25 off 35 balls, studded with five boundaries.

 

After Yuvraj’s dismissal, Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni tried to keep up the momentum hitting couple of boundaries. However, Dhoni was lucky to be at the crease as he was twice caught behind off no-balls.

 

The umpires decided to go for an early lunch when the play was stopped due to bad light. At that time, Laxman was at the crease batting on 106, accompanied by Dhoni on 22.

 

Earlier, Rahul Dravid slammed a fluent 119 to put India in command before West Indies snapped up two quick wickets in the fag end of the day to recover marginally in the second Test.

 

Opting to bat, Dravid and VVS Laxman continued their love affair on their favourite Eden Gardens track as their 140-run partnership put India in a strong position of 346 for five at close on the opening day.

 

On a day Sachin Tendulkar missed out again on the 100th international century when he was out on 38, Dravid took centrestage by notching up his 36th Test and his fifth in 2011.

 

The fourth wicket partnership was broken by part-timer Kraigg Brathwaite who took his maiden Test wicket in form of centurion Dravid who played one on to his stumps.

 

Brief Scores: India 433 for 6 (Rahul Dravid 119, VVS Laxman 106*, Gautam Gambhir 65; Darren Sammy 2 for 99, Kraigg Brathwaite 1 for 9) vs West Indies.
