India 'A' batsmen struggled yet again and managed to score 230 after being put in by West Indies 'A' in the decisive third and final cricket Test here at the Beausejour Cricket Stadium

In reply, West Indies ‘A’ were 34 without loss, with Test opener Kieran Powell unbeaten on 16 and Kraigg Brathwaite on 13.

The visitors were rescued by their lower-order all-rounder Jalaj Saxena’s breezy 61after being reduced to 179 for seven soon after tea. The poor form of top-order batsmen continued. Opener Ajinkya Rahane (32), skipper Cheteshwar Pujara (33)and Manoj Tiwari (32) got their eye in, but failed to build. — IANS
