Vihari, Nair⭐ Help India A Seize Initiative👍

Windies A 302 & 210 (Jermaine Blackwood 67, John Campbell 61; Mohammed Siraj 4-64, Rajneesh Gurbani 3-64) lead India A 192 & 214/3 (Hanuma Vihari 65*, Karun Nair 55; Romario Shepherd 1-25) by 106 runs

The see-saw battle of fortunes turned in India A's favour going into the final day of the second unofficial Test as half-centuries by Hanuma Vihari and Karun Nair put them in a favourable position against Windies A in Taunton.

Windies, who were in a strong position coming into Day 3 of the second unofficial Test, suffered a collapse and handed over the initiative to their opposition. Resuming their second innings on 96 for 1, with a 206-run lead to boast of, they lost nine wickets on Thursday in exchange of only 114 runs.

Chasing 321 for a win, India A got off to a steady start with R Samarth and Abhimanyu Easwaran putting on a half-century stand. However, the real momentum to India A's chase was provided by Vihari and Nair, who stitched a 136-run stand once both the openers were back in the pavilion with only 78 runs on the board.
