India won the match by 63 runs

Today was the fourth day of the first test match that is being played between World no. 1 team India and West Indies at Sabina Park, Kingston - Jamaica. India have already played their 2 innings, it was the responsibility of the hosts to chase down the total. But they could not perform well. By the end of the first session they had lost their 9th wicket as well. There was some expectations from Indian side to take the last wicket before the lunch time. But unfortunately they failed to do so.

After the break, West Indies came back strongly and put up a last wicket partnership of 39 runs. Now the pressure was on Indians to take the last wicket and on the other side, the required run kept on decreasing. Finally it was Suresh Raina who did the honors for the team. West Indies were all out scoring 262 runs (WI - 262/10). India won the match by 63 runs. Praveen Kumar, Ishant Sharma took 3 wickets each.

Now, Indians lead the test series by 1-0. Next test match will be played at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados on 28th of June.
