Lunch Day 3: Windies lead by 204
Delhi, India -- Shivnarine Chanderpaul held the key to the West Indies’ second innings at lunch on the third day of the first Test match on Tuesday.
The 37-year-old was on 39 not out at the break as the Windies wobbled to 109-7. They lost five wickets in the morning session and the overall lead is 204 so far.
Chanderpaul, who hit a century in the first innings, and skipper Darren Sammy on eight not out were batting at the break with West Indies stretching their overall lead to 204 runs with three wickets in hand.
Resuming on 21 for two, the visitors lost wickets at regular intervals with India making the most of foggy morning conditions at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
India’s debutants off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and pacer Umesh Yadav took two wickets apiece. Ishant Sharma returned to remove Fidel Edwards for one caught behind and nearly had Darren Bravo (12) in the same over too but Ashwin dropped the catch at extra cover.
Fellow quick Yadav claimed his maiden test wicket when he uprooted Kirk Edwards' off-stump after the batsman offered no stroke.
