Baugh enjoying second lifeline

Kolkata, India, CMC – After six years in the selection wilderness, wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh has been enjoying a new lease on his international career.

He made his Test debut as a 20-year-old against the touring Australians back in 2003 but survived just five matches over the next year before being dropped.

The pint-sized Jamaican gained a call-up for the tour of Sri Lanka last year after incumbent Denesh Ramdin was dumped, and has been turning in a number of decent performances since.

Delhi, India, IANS/CMC – Top off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has been ignored again as India on Thursday named an unchanged 15-man squad for the second Test against West Indies starting in Kolkata Monday.

Windies heads held high after Delhi defeat

Delhi, India — West Indies captain Darren Sammy said the players are still in good spirits as they look ahead to the second Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

The skipper acknowledged there was a “missed opportunity” in the first Test to record a victory over a higher ranked Test nation away from home when they were undone by the Indian bowling attack in the second innings.

Dhoni: We were far from perfect

Delhi, India -- After a miserable England tour, where the victory was always on the other side, the first Test win was supposed to be welcomed with bouquets of flowers, but Indian skipper MS Dhoni, did not look very impressed with the way his team won the match on Wednesday.

Against a weak West Indies, India conceded a 95-run first innings lead after a batting collapse that reminded everyone of the English summer. However, the batsmen made amends in the second innings to secure a five-wicket win on on the fourth day.
