After India piled on a healthy lead of 143, West Indies were 224 for 6 at stumps on day 4. Despite a magnificent ton on debut by Kirk Edwards and a fighting innings by Shivnarain Chandrapaul, West Indies are just 81 runs ahead of India with just 4 wickets in hand and a full day of test cricket to negotiate.
Earlier, starting the day at 308 for six, Indian batsmen didn't last long and were all out for 347 as Fidel Edwards (5/103) ran through the lower order picking three of the last four wickets which also included top scorer Mahendra Singh Dhoni (74).
With their tail up, India's new ball bowlers, Ishant Sharma and Praveen Kumar struck early by removing the West Indian openers in the opening session. While Adrian Barath fell to Kumar for six, Kieron Powell was snapped up by Sharma after making just four.
