Awana departs for the Caribbean

  • Parvinder Awana, the seamer who played for Kings XI Punjab in the IPL, left for the Caribbean on Sunday to join the India A squad. He was held up due to visa issues. Awana was named as a replacement for the injured RP Singh prior to the tour but, according to reports, it took a while for him to be granted a transit visa through the UK.

Captain Veerasammy Permaul led West Indies A's fightback in the second unofficial Test, helping them gain a slender lead over India A after the visitors had taken the honours on the first day. Permaul grabbed five wickets with his left-arm spin and was well supported by the rest of the bowling crew - each of the five bowlers bagged at least a wicket. Cheteshwar Pujara, captaining his team, impressed once again, scoring his third half-century in as many innings but even he couldn't prevent West Indies from bowling India out for 202.

Seamer Shami Ahmed brought an early end to the West Indies innings on the second day, removing opener Kraigg Brathwaite, who had batted out the opening day, for 66. He then trapped Devendra Bishoo in front to finish with 4 for 48 and keep West Indies to 217.

But India were under pressure early in the chase. Abhinav Mukund, who bagged a pair in the first unofficial Test, was lbw to seamer Jason Holder for 8 while Shikhar Dhawan was cleaned up by Delorn Johnson for a duck. Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara, however, tried to bail India out of trouble. Pujara took the bulk of the strike in the 74-run third-wicket stand but Permaul struck to undermine the hard work.

Permaul, who made a quick 36 in West Indies' innings, had Rahane caught at slip for 18 before taking a return catch from Rohit Sharma to dismiss him for 1. Pujara brought up his half-century with a six over long-on off legspinner Bishoo, but he too fell to Permaul, edging to the wicketkeeper. Manoj Tiwary, who had added 27 with Pujara, followed soon.

Wriddhiman Saha and the lower order, though, stepped up. Saha added 38 with Rahul Sharma. Rahul then put together 32 with Shami. The last four wickets added 79 runs for India, but Permaul completed the innings by dismissing Shami and Ashok Dinda and bagged a five-for.

West Indies were six without loss in the second innings, a lead of 21.

@MysticMan - Thanks for score update mate. Where do you get this score from? Are you in WI?

It would be greatly appreciated if Cricinfo could give us live scoreboard for India A vs. West Indies A unofficial test matches. It seems like a long wait for getting the scores the day after the match day in this space age where instant scores are routine. I am sure there is sufficiant interest in this series - at least as much as in the test series betwn. England & WI, amongst the vast Indian fans.Thank you cricinfo, in advance.

Johnson 9-0-20-4 comes off after a brilliant opening burst. He did all that was asked of him. Permaul on from the south. IND 57-4. Spin from both ends with less than 2 overs to go for the day. Rohit already dropped once, denying Johnson a 5-for.

Tough going in the middle. Ball swinging both ways and the tall bowlers are getting pace and bounce. IND 46-4. Rohit 2* Tiwary 15*

Indian team in trouble. 30-4; 190 still to get! Rahane bowled 3, Dhawan bowled 8, Pujara caught behind 1, Mukund lbw; Johnson 4-15.

Chasing 220, India are in deep trouble at 30-4. Johnson has 4-14 off 5 overs of superb left-arm fast bowling. He wants to win it for his team. IND stuck on 30-4, 220 to win Johnson produced a superb outwisnger and Pujra touched it to the keeper. Amazing bowling from the big lad. IND 30-4, 220 to win

OUT! Pagon caught behnid as he pushed forward. Made 67 valuable runs. Darekar gets his 6th wicket on a helpful pitch. WI 203-9

Ashok Dinda in the test team for what??? He is the most overrated bowler in India.Shammi Ahmad should be in the Indian team so as B Kumar.Shami And Pujara should be included in the next test match

Tea on Day 3. WI 180-8 Pagon 49* Johnson 0* - lead by 195 Darekar has 5-49 and has given India the upperhand in a tight contest
