Dwayne Bravo’s battling century proved in vain as clinched the three-match series against West Indies with an innings and 15-run win on day four of the second Test at the Eden Gardena in Kolkata today. Bravo hit 136 while Marlon Samuels also fought hard with 84 to stave off a defeat which was confirmed in the afternoon session on day four. Umesh Yadav was the pick of the bowlers with four for 80 as the Windies were dismissed for 463 in their second innings. West Indies had offered stiff resistance in their second inning as both Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels played their inning with commitment, taking the side to 339 for 4 at lunch. The pair took the total to 401 when Bravo edged Pragyan Ojha (2-104) to Dravid at first slip and the visitors fell in a heap crashing to 463 all out.
Earlier, Windies started the day on 195 for three in their follow-on, they were still 283 runs away of making India bat again but Bravo and Chanderpaul batted sensibly for the opening hour. Chanderpaul, as usual, was happy to keep the scoreboard ticking over while Bravo didn’t hesitate to go for the big shots. Bravo went to his seventh half-century off 111 balls, but he nearly ran himself out shortly after reaching the milestone. With the pitch getting slower, India’s bowlers failed to trouble the batsmen and it took a false shot from Chanderpaul to bring them a wicket. The veteran looked to push a ball from Umesh Yadav to the off-side but ended up getting an inside edge onto his stumps when on 46.
The wicket, though, didn’t put Bravo off and he continued to play attacking shots. He eventually went to his second century off 181 balls with 10 fours and four sixes. He finished the session unbeaten on 117 with Marlon Samuels, who looked a little nervous at the start, not out on 31 to leave the Windies with a deficit of 139 with six second innings wickets still left. But all the batsmen failed to deliver in the post lunch session and were out with 15 runs left to level the India’s first innings score.
