Barbados: On a day in which the bowlers held all the aces, India A restricted West Indies A to a second-innings score of 210, but then found themselves struggling at 22 for three at close of play. India needed a further 164 runs from the final day in order to secure a 1-0 lead in the series.
Rohit Sharma, who made 94 in the first innings, chipped in with the ball, picking up four West Indies A lower order wickets to top the India A bowling figures.
West Indies A, resuming at three for no loss, began the day well after conceding a 25-run first innings lead. Openers Lendl Simmons (53) and Kraigg Brathwaite (50) played contrasting innings up front, with Simmons dominating the first-wicket stand of 68 with five fours and two sixes in his 66-ball knock. Brathwaite, on the other hand, scored his half century off 166 balls, holding the top order together as West Indies reached 134 for two at one stage.
