St Kitts Test Start

West Indies threaten strike action

STRIKE action could disrupt the third Test between India and the West Indies, which begins today, after it was revealed the Windies players are playing without contracts. The West Indies Players Association is seeking urgent meetings with the West Indies Cricket Board before the start of the Test in St Kitts, but claims its requests have so far been ignored. The players began the series without retainer contracts, something WIPA president Dinanath Ramnarine claims is causing them great displeasure and unease.
Despite the row over contracts, West Indies captain Brian Lara is hoping a lively pitch will help his side gain the upper hand in the four-Test series. The series is level at 0-0, after two tension-filled draws in which the Indian batsmen had their fill on easy-paced pitches, much to Laras annoyance. West Indies (from): B Lara (Captain), I Bradshaw, D Bravo, S Chanderpaul, P Collins, C Collymore, D Ganga, C Gayle, R Morton, D Ramdin, M Samuels, R Sarwan, J Taylor.
India (from): R Dravid (Captain), M Dhoni, W Jaffer, M Kaif, D Karthik, A Kumble, V Laxman, M Patel, I Pathan, R Powar, S Raina, V Sehwag, H Singh, V Singh, Y Singh, S Sreesanth.

St Kitts Test First Day

West Indies batsmen shine after rain

West Indies made a solid start finishing on 207-1 on day one of the third Test against India in St Kitts
West Indies were powered to the strong position largely by opener Chris Gayle, who struck an incredible 83, that included eight fours and five sixes, before he fell to the bowling of Indias Munaf Patel. Despite rain interruptions, Gayle was assisted by fellow opener Daren Ganga in a partnership of 143. Ganga returns to the crease on 64, a high for him since his previous top score had been 36. He batted for 256 minutes and faced 186 balls while striking six fours. Ramnaresh Sarwan, who replaced Gayle, is on 44 not out. Both sides are looking for a win since theyre both tied at 0-0. The West Indies previously won their one-day international at Warner Park, sweeping the series and are probably hoping for a repeat of that performance.

St Kitts Test Second Day

West Indies charge halted by rain

Daren Ganga and Ramnaresh Sarwan hit centuries as West Indies built a big total in the third Test against India.
The home side had reached 420-5 by tea, when heavy rain in St Kitts forced the umpires to call off the day's play. Ganga was bowled for 136 and Guyanese star Sarwan fell lbw for 116 as, having been 346-1, West Indies conceded some of their advantage. Both Brian Lara and Dwayne Bravo were out cheaply, while Munaf Patel took three of the wickets in the innings. Play started early at Warner Park to make up for the three hours lost on the opening morning after heavy rain.

St Kitts Test Third Day

India 150 for 2 at close on third day

Opener Wasim Jaffer struck a half-century to bolster India's reply to West Indies' 581 on the third day of the third Test on Saturday.
At the close India were 150-2 with Jaffer back in the pavilion after scoring 60 with 10 boundaries. Shivnarine Chanderpaul was left stranded on 97 not out when West Indies collapsed after lunch with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh taking 5-147. India need to score 382 to avoid the follow-on, with the series tied.

St Kitts Test Fourth Day

West Indies lead India by 332 runs

West Indies led India by 332 runs at the close of the fourth day of the third Test on Sunday after reaching 113 for four in their second innings.
Earlier, pace bowlers Jerome Taylor and Corey Collymore shared six wickets to help dismiss India for 362 in their first innings as they chased 581. But Windies captain Brian Lara decided against enforcing the follow-on. VVS Laxman scored exactly 100 but was out in the same over in which he completed his century. Fast bowler Shantha Sreesanth and leg-spinner Anil Kumble snared two wickets apiece in West Indies second innings.

St Kitts Test Fifth Day

India and West Indies draw St. Kitts test

The third Test between India and West Indies ended in a draw on the fifth and final day at St Kitts on Monday.
Chasing 392 to win, India scored 298 for the loss of four wickets. After the 85 mandatory overs were bowled, Indian captain Rahul Dravid and his West Indies counterpart Brian Lara decided to agree on a draw and end the proceedings. At the close, Dravid was unbeaten on 68 from 130 balls and Yuvraj Singh scored eight from 50 deliveries. Daren Ganga was adjudged man of the match. He scored a century in the first innings and followed it up with a half-century in the second. With the first three Tests drawn, all eyes will be on the fourth and deciding game that is to be played in Jamaica from June 30.
