India A consolidate their position against Windies A on Day 3
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.
