IT WAS déjà vu for West Indies yesterday.
Different venue. Much of the same.
Another limp performance by their batsmen saw West Indies crashing to a disappointing 196 on the first day of the second Test against India at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
While the first three wickets fell for seven runs to the faster bowlers, the middle and lower order were once again undermined by off-spinner Ravi Ashwin who bagged a five-wicket haul to follow up a seven-wicket second innings haul in the first Test in Antigua.
One of the early casualties was Darren Bravo, who was well caught at second slip by sure-handed India captain Virat Kohli off pacer Ishant Sharma. (Picture courtesy WICB Media.)
