Posted by on June 23, 2011 0 Comment

Praveen Kumar dismissed both overnight batsmen early on day four to put India on course for a win over the West Indies in the first Test in Jamaica.

The Windies, who was set a winning target of 326 after bowling India out for 252 on day three, started the penultimate day of the opening Test on 131 for three, but they lost both Darren Bravo (41) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (30) as well as Carlton Baugh in the opening hour.

The two left-handed batsmen shared a 68-run fourth-wicket partnership before Bravo was bowled around his wickets after walking across his stumps. Chanderpaul followed him to the stands two overs later when he after he accepted Kumar’s invitation to drive, but hit it straight to Suresh Raina at cover.

The Windies slipped into deeper trouble when birthday boy Carlton Baugh departed for a duck after hitting a turning one from Harbhajan Singh to leg slip. Cricket365
