Kolkata: Nov 15, 2011

 

Middle-order batsman Rahul Dravid’s 36th Test century and significant contributions by Gautam Gambhir and VVS Laxman pushed India to 346 for five on the first day of the second Test against West Indies at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

 

Dravid faced 207 balls for his knock of 119, which included nine boundaries and two huge sixes. He fell to West Indies bowler Kraigg Brathwaite.

 

Dravid was involved in crucial partnership at the various stages of Indian innings, which set an ideal platform for his side to post a huge first innings total with some more batting to come.

 

After adding 83 runs for the second wicket with Gautam Gambhir (65), Dravid teamed up with Sachin Tendulkar to add a further 56 runs for the third wicket.

 

The Indian little master once again disappointed as he failed to convert a good start into a big score, falling to Devendra Bishoo for 38.

 

After Tendulkar’s fall, Dravid joined forced with Laxman, who carried on his form from the first Test, and remained not out on , to add 140 runs for the fourth wicket.

 

Brief Scores: India 346 for 5 (Rahul Dravid 119, VVS Laxman 73*, Gautam Gambhir 65; Kraigg Brathwaite 1 for 9, Fidel Edwards 1 for 45) vs West Indies.
