Rohit gives India 'A' lead against West Indies 'A'
At the draw of stumps, West Indies 'A' were 3 for no loss after bowling out India 'A' for 277.
Rohit missed out on a century, falling for 94, but his carefully crafted knock, complemented by skipper Cheteshwar Pujara (50) and Wriddhimaan Saha (56), pulled India out of trouble after the top-three departed, contributing just nine runs to the total.
For the Caribbeans, medium-pacer Jonathan Carter was the wrecker-in-chief scalping five wickets in his 17 overs and he was ably supported by express bowler Delorn Johnson, who managed three for 29 in 14.1 overs.
The Indian bowlers had done a fine job by bowling out the hosts for 252 on the first day itself but the team put up a below-par effort with the bat to leave the match wide open.
It was a nightmarish start to the day for the Indians as opener Abhinav Mukund was castled for a naught by Johnson with the team score reading just one run.
One-down batsman Ajinkya Rahane did not last long and was run out by Lendl Simmons. Rahane too went back without disturbing the scorers.
