India made to toil on Day 3
Basseterre (St. Kitts), july 17:
India were made to toil hard on Day Three of the second practice match as West Indies Board President's XI defied the bowling to reach 104/3 at lunch here today.
The visitors had finished their first innings at 364 on Day Two after bowling out the hosts for 180 on the first day. Shardul Thakur (0/11) and Ravindra Jadeja (1/25) started the day's proceedings and Thakur was on the mark with his line and length but failed to get any success.
Jadeja also struggled with the cross wind across the stadium and was taken for runs by the batsmen.
Opener John Campbell stepped out and smacked him for two sixes and thereafter Ravichandran Ashwin (2/38) was re-introduced into the attack. The left-arm spinner did not get any rest though, as skipper Virat Kohli deployed him from the same end as in the first innings.
It paid immediate dividends as Jadeja got his man with Campbell caught at mid-on by KL Rahul.
At the other end, Ashwin continued to trouble the batsmen with his bounce and turn whilst bowling to an attacking field. But Shai Hope (17) and Jermaine Blackwood (20 batting) defied him for nearly five overs. In the end, the wicket did come off a brilliant ball with Hope caught by Kohli at the leg slip in the 26th over of the innings.
Blackwood, in company of Vishaul Singh (17 not out), managed to bat on for nearly 17 overs and put on 34 runs for the fourth wicket going into the break.
Brief scores: Board President's XI: 180, 104/3 (Ashwin 1/14); Indians: 364 (Rahul 64, Jadeja 56, Kohli 51, Cornwall 5.118).... More
