India A 133-10 (Vihari 37, Lewis 4-35, Holder 4-57) and 609-6 (Shaw 188, Samarth 137, Lewis 4-130) drew with West Indies A 383-10 (Ambris 128, Brooks 91, Rajpoot 4-76) and 245-7 (Blackwood 61, Saini 2-41)
India A who were once trailing by 250 runs got into a position where they led Windies A by 360 runs and threatened to get over the line. However, the Windies A lower order showed some resistance to deny India their first win of the two-match series.
India A did not take too long to declare after Captain Karun Nair was dismissed by Sherman Lewis (24-130-4), seven shy of a century. The team declared for 609 for 6 and posted at target of 359 for Windies A on the last day of the Test.
As expected, the scoreboard pressure got the better of Windies A as they lost Chanderpaul Hemraj (0) on the first ball of the second over. Despite fighting knocks from Campbell (44), Blackwood (61), Ambris (42) and Cornwall (40), India A needed just three wickets to wrap up the game at one point.
However, Raymon Reifer (11, 74b) showed fighting spirit to keep India A away from the much-coveted win. Navdeep Saini, Shahbaz Nadeem and Jayant Yadav picked two wickets each for India A as the four-day game ended without yielding any result. The two teams will clash on the 10th of July next in the 2nd unofficial Test.
