Kolkata: Nov 17, 2011

 

Adrian Barath and Kirk Edwards’ hit half-centuries as West Indies reach 195 for three, trailing by further 283 runs in their second innings at the end of the third day’s play at the Eden Gardens.

 

After being dismissed for 153 in the first innings, the Caribbean batsmen put up much-improved batting show in the second. After losing opener Kraigg Brathwaite at the score of 23, Barath and Edwards’ 93-run stand for the second wicket helped them gain some momentum.

 

Barath struck 10 boundaries for his knock of 62, which came from 105 balls, while Edwards’ knock of 60 included six boundaries and a six.

 

West Indies were rocked immediately after the tea break, with the dismissals of Barath and Edwards, but Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Darren Bravo didn’t give any further chances to Indian bowlers to capitalise.

 

Young opener Barath, making a comeback after missing most part of the Bangladesh tour and the opening Test, looked compact as he completed his second half-century against India and third overall.

 

Barath enjoyed the company of Edwards who looked in aggressive mood, slamming Ojha for consecutive boundary and a six over long-on.

 

India used a fifth bowler in Yuvraj Singh but the duo batted on, prolonging India’s wait.

 

India had earlier bundled out the West Indies for 153 in 48 overs in the first innings, claiming eight wickets in an extended first session that began 30 minutes early.

 

Darren Bravo (38) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (21) were at the crease when stumps were drawn on the third day.

 

Brief Scores: India 631 for 7 dec (VVS Laxman 176*, MS Dhoni 144, Rahul Dravid 119, Gautam Gambhir 65; Kemar Roach 2 for 106) lead West Indies 153 (Darren Bravo 30; Pragyan Ojha 4 for 64, Umesh Yadav 3 for 23, R Ashwin 2 for 49) & 195 for 3 (Adrian Barath 62, Kirk Edwards 60, Darren Bravo 38*; Ishant Sharma 2 for 41) by 283 runs.
