After a dominant batting show in the limited overs series, the young India A batsmen struggled to tackle the red ball as they were out for a paltry 133 against West Indies on the opening day of the four-day 'Test', here today.

Prithvi Shaw, in preceding tri-series, perished in the first ball of the match, bowled by Chemar Holder, and his opening partner Mayank Agarwal too suffered a golden duck. Captain Karun Nair fell for 20 and if it was not for a 60-run stand between Hanuma Vihari (37) and all-rounder Vijay Shankar (34), the Indian side would have been in a more embarrassing position.
