Fourth Test Match

West Indies v India

At Trinidad, April 4, 5, 6, 7. West Indies won by seven wickets. A brilliant century by Kanhai and fine last-wicket stand of 93 between Worrell and Hall put West Indies in a strong position.

The Indian batsmen were no match for the pace of Hall and the first five wickets fell to the fast bowler for 61 before the end of the second day. Umrigar, Pataudi and Borde improved the position but West Indies enforced the follow-on with a lead of 247.

India did better at their second attempt. Durani, promoted in the order, hit a grand hundred and on the fourth day Umrigar played a magnificent not-out innings of 172 in just over four hours.

Left 176 to win, West Indies batted slowly but surely and gained their fourth success of the rubber by lunch time on the fifth day.
