India Vs West Indies - 1st Test Match at Delhi, Nov 6-10

India Vs West Indies - 1st Test Match at Delhi, Nov 6-10, 2011

So India made just 209 in their first innings and gave the West Indies a lead of 90 odd runs. Considering that the Kotla pitch is playing low and slow this lead could prove to be the deciding factor in deciding the outcome of this test match.

West Indies have made 180 in their second innings with Shivnarine Chanderpaul again top scoring with a valuable 47. The lower order of the West Indies too did their bit with the bat on the increasingly difficult pitch to bat on with Sammy plundering 42 runs and Rampaul making 18 runs. R Ashwin took 6 wickets in his debut match.

So India need exactly 276 runs to win this one. It will definitely not be easy but Sehwag is batting on a different pitch it seems. India is currently 72/1 with Gambhir back in the pavilion and Sehwag batting on 42 along with Rahul Dravid.

This promises to be a very good test match with an exciting finish on the cards. I am watching it with bated breath. What are your thoughts on the match as of now?

@ sriramnivas
Dravid got out early but Sachin and Laxman batted superbly to win the game for us..
