Fidel Edwards’ five-wicket haul helped West Indies bowl out India for 347 on Day 4 of the third Test at the Windsor Park Stadium in Dominica on Saturday. India, finished the third day at 308/6, managed to add only 39 runs on the fourth day with the loss of four wickets. Edwards, who claimed his 10th Test five-wicket haul, took the last wicket of the Indian innings in the form of Ishant Sharma for two. Devendra Bishoo also joined the party as he scalped Praveen Kumar to reduce the visitors to 343/9 in 107.1 overs. Edwards struck again after the brief rain halt to scalp skipper MS Dhoni, who made his first half century of the series. Rain again became the hurdle as the play has been stopped when India were 334/7 in 104.5 overs. Pacer Fidel Edwards struck in the first over of the day as he dismissed Harbhajan Singh to give West Indies early breakthrough in the rain hit day. Harbhajan got out on his overnight score of 12 as he was looking for a pull but ended up with a top edge and keeper Baugh took a regulation catch. Earlier, skipper MS Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh, after dominating the third day, resumed the Indian innings after the play has been delayed by fifteen minutes due to wet outfield. On Friday, four visiting batsmen scored fifties as India, resuming at eight for no loss, ended the day at 308/6 while replying to hosts’ 204 all out in the first innings. Dhoni top-scored with an unbeaten 65 in a strong batting show as India strengthened their position in the match by taking a healthy 104-run lead on the third day. Dhoni shared 103-run sixth wicket stand with Suresh Raina (50) and made sure that the good work of opener Abhinav Mukund (62), VVS Laxman (56) Virat Kohli (30) does not go waste.
