Nikita Miller spins West Indies 'A' to big win vs India 'A'
The West Indies 'A' routed India 'A' by 162 runs after the hosts collapsed to 152 in their second innings with the visiting spinners Nikita Miller (5-40) and Veerasammy Permaul (3-56) yet again playing the lead role on the fourth and concluding day of the match here on Saturday.
Chasing 315 after the Windies declared their second innings at their overnight 130 for three, the Indians gave yet another poor performance to be dismissed for 152 in the 86th over.
Left-arm spinners Miller and Permaul, who had taken four and five wickets respectively in the Indian first innings that folded for 245 to give the Windies a 184-run lead, again did the bulk of damage on the fourth day to lead their side to a splendid victory.
The only solace for the Indians was the batting of Manpreet Juneja who followed up on his first innings score of 84 with a fighting 70 (193b, 4x4, 1x6), but received no support from the other end as the home team capitulated.
