Shimoga: Virender Sehwag's experiment to bat in the middle-order didn't yield any favourable result while Gautam Gambhir's woeful run of form continued as India A reached 191 for three at stumps on the second day of their second unofficial ‘Test' against West Indies A here today.




After West Indies A scored a decent 406 in their first innings, opener Gambhir (11) and No. 4 Sehwag (7) played atrocious shots off left-arm spinner Veeraswamy Permaul's (2/60) bowling to get back to the cooler confines of the dressing room.

Unheralded Kerala opener Vasudevan Jagadeesh showed a lot of temperament as he remained undefeated on 79 in the company of in-form Abhishek Nayar, who again showed his utility with an useful 56.

Youngster Jagadeesh, who narrowly missed out on a century during a ‘Test' against New Zealand ‘A' earlier this year, showed a lot of composure during his 172-ball knock that included eight boundaries.

Nayar was in his attacking self as he smacked seven boundaries and a six in only 38 balls, coming into bat after skipper Cheteshwar Pujara (25, 90 balls) was dismissed after a dogged effort.
