Indian pacers strike back in Barbados Test
Barbados (West Indies), June 29 (ANI): India's three-pronged pace attack of Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar and Abhimanyu Mithun struck telling blows in the West Indies first innings after the visitors were bundled out for 201 in the second cricket Test being played between the two sides here.
At the close of play on Tuesday, the West Indies were 30 for the loss of three wickets and still needed a further 172 runs to take a lead. At stumps, middle-order batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan and night watchman D. Bishoo were batting on 10 and 1 respectively.
Sharma, Kumar, and Mithun all collected a wicket apiece to leave the West Indies in tatters.
Sharma had opener Adrian Barath caught at gully for three in the fourth over. In the next over, Praveen Kumar had the opener Lendl Simmons caught behind for two and Mithun had left-hander Darren Bravo caught behind for nine from the penultimate ball of the day.
Bravo was clearly upset by the decision made by Pakistan umpire Asad Rauf. Television replays suggested that it was highly dubious.
Bravo dropped his bat, stared in anger at the official, and swung his bat in disgust.
Earlier, West Indian fast bowler Fidel Edwards ran through the lower half of India's batting, removing their captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for two, Harbhajan Singh for five, and Mithun for a duck, finishing with 3 for 56 from 19 overs.
Ravi Rampaul was the pick of the West Indies bowlers, with three for 38 from 16 overs, and Bishoo snared three for 46 from 14 overs.
V.V.S. Laxman to scored with 85, while Suresh Raina scored 53. (ANI)
