LUNCH DAY 2: Ojha takes six

Delhi, India - Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha claimed six wickets as India bowled out West Indies for 304 runs and then raced to 39-0 at lunch on the second day of the first Test on Monday.

Ojha (6-72) added three more wickets to his overnight collection, while Ravichandran Ashwin (3-81) and Ishant Sharma (1-80) also struck as West Indies added only 48 runs to their tally before losing the bottom half of their batting order in 17.1 overs.

Gautam Gambhir (22) and Virender Sehwag (15) gave India a breezy start and could not be separated at the lunch break.
