Dhoni steadies India after home strikes
Saturday 09 July 2011
Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni led an India fightback on the third day of the third Test against West Indies at Windsor Park, Dominica as the tourists regained the initiative.
On a topsy-turvy day, the hosts had claimed quick wickets in the morning before half-centuries for Abhinav Mukund and VVS Laxman put India in the driving seat at lunch.
The home side responded by removing the pair and Virat Kohli during the afternoon, but Dhoni and Suresh Raina added further fifties in a dominant final session to propel India to 308 for 6 at stumps and a first-innings lead of 104.
