Hello, good evening and a very warm welcome to you all on CricketCountry’s live cricket blog and live cricket updates’ post on the second warm-up match for India, before their Test series against West Indies. India will be facing the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President’s XI in a three-day tour match starting Thursday, which will be their second and final tour match ahead of the four-Test series, starting July 21. The Indians had earlier played a two-day tour match against the same opponent, and without any surprises, the game had ended in a tame draw with both the batting and bowling departments getting good practise. COMPLETE COVERAGE: India vs West Indies 2016

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES India 93/3 in  25.3 overs: Just when they both were looking good, Pujara goes back to the pavilion and with that, the day’s play has come to an end.

Join in tomorrow. BATTING: KL Rahul 30*

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 171/8 in 61 overs: India had allowed the WICB president’s XI tail-enders’ to add up some valuable runs before they can take on the field with the bat.

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 144/8 in 55 overs: Ashwin and Shami are going all guns blazing at the tail-enders’ of WICB President XI who have been very shabby with their batting. BATTING: Jason Dawes 1* (1) & Kemar Roach 1* (21)

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 124/6 in 45 overs: Hodge was the last man to be out. He went for 6 and again the wicket went to Jadeja.

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 111/5 in 40 overs: Jadeja has been put out of the bowling attack after he got  a wicket.

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 98/5 in 36 overs: Jadeja cleans bowls Blackwood as WICB President’s XI lose another wicket before reaching their century. Half the side lost before 100 on the board. BATTING: Montcin Hodge 5* (25)

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 67/3 in 24 overs: WICB President’s XI batsmen are looking on the backfoot. They all have got starts but have somehow failed to convert them.

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 57/3 in 20 overs: Jermaine Blackwood had joined Shai Hope in the middle for the hosts, but Stuart Binny had the latter caught off a wide ball outside off.

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 49/2 in 16 overs: WICKET! Indians strike again to get their second wicket, as Ravichandran Ashwin has got John Campbell stumped for 34. He played a fine knock though, looked to attack all the time. BATTING: Shai Hope 7*

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 42/1 in 14 overs: Indians have made changes in their bowling attack, with Ravichandran Ashwin and Stuart Binny operating from the two ends. Ashwin has heavy field set-up on the leg side, trying to get the batsman out bat-pad. Run-scoring has certainly gone down a bit. BATTING: John Campbell 29*, Shai Hope 5*

Time for drinks after 11 overs. A man is removing the dust off the pitch while there is another groundsman repainting the crease. One of the West Indies batsman readjusting himself with his trousers half way down. You can also hear utensils clattering at some distance…

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 36/1 in 10 overs: Runs have come at a decent rate for the Caribbean batsmen. Campbell has looked really good and with him at the crease is Shai Hope, at No. 3. Unfortunately for Thakur, Cheteshwar Pujara dropped a very easy catch in the slip cordon.  BATTING: John Campbell 25*, Shai Hope 3*

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 27/1 in 8 overs: No change in the bowling attack so far for the Indians. Shami has been a little wayward but it is the young Shardul who has been bending his back, and he has got the result as well. Thanks to Stuart Binny’s superb catch running in from mid on, Indians have their first wicket! BATTING: John Campbell 19*,

OUT! Leon Johnson (3) c Stuart Binny b Leon Johnson

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 25/0 in 6 overs: The Indians have bowled 6 overs so far but they have not got a wicket yet. The pitch looks deprived of grass, and there has not been much movement either. Indians have remain unchanged in their bowling so far with Shami and Thakur working in tandem. BATTING: John Campbell 19*, Leon Johnson 2*

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 14/0: Shami continued for his second over and West Indies batsmen added 5 more runs from it. BATTING: John Campbell 10*, Leon Johnson 0*

LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES WICB President’s XI 9/0: Mohammed Shami begins the proceedings for Indians. The bowlers did not have a great time last match but they will be looking to make amends this game. Expensive over from Shami as the hosts collect nine runs off it. BATTING: John Campbell 5*, Leon Johnson 0*

The game will begin at 10.20 am local time at Basseterre, St Kitts, which is about 6 minutes from now.

It was raining a while ago, but only passing showers. We should have the game starting anytime soon!

TOSS: WICB President’s XI win toss, elect to bat against India!

 

The Indians will be looking to take this final tour match as an opportunity to give each one of their players a chance to get ready for the Test series, as the hot and humid conditions in the Caribbean will also be a good test for the young Indian side.

In the first tour match held last week, both the tourists as well as the home side had a good run. A two-day game did not warrant lot of runs, but for India, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma pushed for their selections with half-centuries. Unfortunately, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane could not make most of the opportunity.

For the WICB President’s XI, Rajendra Chandrika scored 69 but Shai Hope was the star of their innings. Hope clobbered a fine century, scoring 118 off 229 balls with 15 boundaries to let the selectors know about his form. Unfortunately, the West Indies selectors did not see much in him as he was excluded for the first Test.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Stuart Binny, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Amit Mishra, Mohammed Shami, Cheteshwar Pujara, Lokesh Rahul, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ishant Sharma, Rohit Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Murali Vijay, Umesh Yadav

WICB President’s XI: Leon Johnson (c), Jermaine Blackwood, Rajendra Chandrika, Roston Chase, Jason Dawes, Shane Dowrich (wk), Shai Hope, Damion Jacobs, Keon Joseph, Marquino Mindley, Vishaul Singh, Jomel Warrican
