The opener Abhinav Mukund hit an unbeaten 52 as India recovered from the loss of two early wickets to reach 102-2 at lunch against West Indies on the third day of the third Test at Windsor Park, Dominica. The visitors were exactly halfway to West Indies' modest first-innings total of 204.

Mukund forged an unbroken third-wicket stand of 84 with VVS Laxman, who contributed a solid 30 not out. India, resuming on 8-0 after two rain-hit days, were quickly in trouble, with the fiery Fidel Edwards and Darren Sammy removing Murali Vijay and 153-Test veteran Rahul Dravid cheaply.
