Ind vs WI: India lose Gambhir after lunch on Day 5
25 November 2011

NEW DELHI: Fidel Edwards dented the Indian run chase when he had Gautam Gambhir caught by West Indies captain Darren Sammy at point on the fifth day of the third Test at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. 


Edwards struck in the second over after lunch to scalp Gambhir. 

India ended the first session of the day at 16/0. 

Earlier, Pragyan Ojha took six wickets while R Ashwin scalped four, as India bundled out the West Indies for 134 runs in their second innings.

India have to a chase a 243-run victory target in 64 overs to register a clean sweep. 

R Ashwin dismissed West Indies captain Darren Sammy and Devendra Bishoo off successive deliveries to end the West Indies second innings. 

Ojha took his sixth wicket when he had Ravi Rampaul caught by Sachin Tendulkar at deep square leg. 

Ashwin took his second wicket when he trapped Kieran Powell plumb in front of the wicket. 

The West Indies lost their sixth wicket when Ashwin clean bowled Carlton Baugh through the gap between bat and pad. 

Ojha dismissed Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels in one over. 

Ojha registered his second five-wicket haul when he incited Samuels (0) out of the crease with a flighted delivery but it turned and missed Samuels' swinging bat for MS Dhoni to complete an easy stumping. 

Ojha took his fourth wicket when he took a simple return catch to dismiss Bravo. 

Bravo hit 5 fours in his 48-run knock before Ojha made him drive against the turn which resulted in his dismissal. 

Ojha struck early in the day when he had Kraigg Brathwaite caught by Sachin Tendulkar at backward point. 

Brathwaite hit 2 fours in his 35-run knock and was done in by the bounce of the Ojha delivery. 

The day's play started with Brathwaite and Bravo resuming the West Indies second innings. 

On Day 4, Sachin Tendulkar was expected to make history, but once the West Indians brought about gloom by stopping the Little Master on 94, it was left to the R Ashwin to provide entertainment and succour to the big crowd.
