Put in to bat by India A skipper Cheteshwar Pujara, West Indies 'A' were rocked by an early blow dealt by medium pacer Mohammad Shami when he trapped opener Kieran Powell leg before for a duck, but Brathwaite and Edwards put on a valuable 172-run stand for the second wicket to give the team a solid platform.
