FAST BOWLER Fidel Edwards captured his tenth Test five-wicket haul but India still had the West Indies on the ropes at lunch on the fourth day of the third Digicel cricket Test at Windsor Park here Saturday.
After India, who resumed from 308 for six overnight were dismissed for 347 in response to the West Indies’ first innings total of 204, the Windies, facing a deficit of 143 runs, made a disastrous start batting a second time, reaching 26 for two at the interval.
They need 117 more runs to avoid an innings defeat with eight wickets in hand.
Openers Kieran Powell and Adrian Barath were sent back by India’s newball bowlers Ishant Sharma and Praveen Kumar for four and six respectively. The not out batsmen are Darren Bravo (nine) and Kirk Edwards (seven).
In the first hour of the day’s play, Edwards removed overnight batsman Harbhajan Singh (12) with the second ball of the day and added the scalps of India’s captain Mahendra Dhoni for 74 and Sharma (4)  to end with five for 103 in 28.2 overs.
Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo got the other wicket to fall, having Kumar caught by Marlon Samuels for a breezy 23.
