Saturday 28 November 2009
India secured a crushing innings and 144-run win over Sri Lanka yesterday in the second Test at Kanpur to take a 1-0 lead in the three-Test series.
Following on, Sri Lanka, who were bowled out for 229 in their first innings in reply to India's 642, were skittled out for 269. Thilan Samaraweera fought bravely but India's spinners achieved victory in the afternoon session to leave him stranded on 78. Harbhajan Singh took 3 for 98.
West Indies' top order collapsed on day two of the first Test against Australia in Brisbane. The tourists, replying to Australia's 480 for 8 declared, slipped from 49 without loss to 63 for 4 and closed on 134 for 5.
Four wickets for Mohammad Asif left the first Test between New Zealand and Pakistan finely poised heading into the final day in Dunedin. Asif took 4 for 41 as New Zealand collapsed to 147 for 8 – a lead of 244 – after bowling out Pakistan for 332.
