India A (133, 536-4) lead Windies A by 286 runs after centuries from Prithvi Shaw (188) and Ravikumar Samarth (137).

Mayank Agarwal (66) was the first wicket to fall as he could only add 12 runs to his overnight score. Agarwal was dismissed by Sherman Lewis (19-100-2) who proved to be one of the better bowlers for Windies A. Centurion Prithvi Shaw continued his class, this time in a more cautious manner to move to 188.

Ravikumar Samarth (137) who came in at one down assisted Shaw brilliantly with a proper Test match century. Captain Karun Nair was the next to follow who played a very stubborn knock and remain unbeaten at 77. After Hanuma Vihari (10) was dismissed buy Devon Thomas (14-60-1), Vijay Shankar (6*) remained unbeaten along with Nair as India bloated to 536 for 4 in 100 overs.


The Windies A bowlers worked hard for the entire day without much success. In a rare occurrence, only four wickets fell throughout the day as India A further consolidated their position and took a lead of 286 runs. With this lead, India A have gradually started nudging ahead in the match.
