West Indies Cricket News July 2006

Toronto to host five ODIs in September

Cricinfo Exclusive: The proposed ODI Series between India and West Indies planned for North America is back on, although all the games are now likely to take place in Canada and not in the USA as originally intended.
It is reported from Canada that a deal was done between the BCCI and the WICB) when their respective chairmen met during the ICC executive meeting at Lord's this week. The series, which is likely to be played in Toronto in September, had been reportedly scrapped and the boards were said to be looking at alternative venues in the Far East. The sticking point was that the grounds in the USA had not received ICC clearance, but there are no such issues in Toronto which has already hosted one-day games. There are other issues which could prove a stumbling block, not least that the West Indies players are said not to have been consulted about their participation in the series which they need to be as it falls outside the ICC's Future Tours Programme. The WICB, which is heavily in debt, will have to make separate financial arrangements with them.

India in West Indies 2006

Anil Kumble bowls India to historic victory

Anil Kumble bowled India to their first series win in the Caribbean for 35 years on Sunday and their first outside the sub-continent for 20 years.
The leg-spinner's performance lifted his side to a 49-run victory over West Indies and a 1-0 series win in the fourth and final test in Kingston. The first three tests at the Antigua Recreation Ground, the Beausejour Cricket Ground, and Warner Park had ended in draws. West Indies, set 269 to win, had staggered to 144 for seven before wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin's unbeaten half-century lifted them to 219 all out. Kumble finished with six for 78, claiming the last five wickets after tea as he bamboozled the lower-order batsmen with cunning, varied bowling.
Fourth Test, Kingston, day three (close): India (200 & 171) bt West Indies (103 & 219) by 49 runs

Rahul Dravid fifty puts India in charge

India ended day two of the final Test on 128-6, giving them an overall lead of 225, after they bowled West Indies for just 103 at Jamaica's Sabina Park.
Captain Rahul Dravid was unbeaten on 62 but scoring again proved difficult on a pitch offering inconsistent bounce as seamer Jerome Taylor took 3-28. Earlier, off-spinner Harbhajan Singh took 5-13 in just 27 balls to help skittle the Windies in 33.3 overs.
Even still, India know that with the Windies needing to make the most runs ever to win at Sabina Park, they are in with a great chance of clinching their first series win in the Caribbean since 1971.
Fourth Test, Kingston, day two (stumps): India 200 & 128-6 v West Indies 103
