Darren Bravo and Carlton Baugh led the West Indies fight back to win the second Test at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Saturday as the proceedings on the fifth and final day of the second test between the two countries was again disrupted by on and off rain finally resulting in the drawn game as the hosts had manage to reach 202 for 7 just 79 runs short of victory when the LIGHT faded one more time to bring the proceedings to a final close. Scores: INDIA 201 & 269 for 9 declared WEST INDIES 190 & 202 for 7. Baugh remained unbeaten at 46, a solid knock which also included a six and five boundaries. Alongwith Bravo he had added a solid 69 runs for the sixth wicket before Bravo finally had departed caught Mohindra Singh Dhoni off Abhimanya Mithun for 73 including eight boundaries. Darren Sammy, the skipper joined Bravo but the light kept fading slowly, an advantage to the Indian bowlers and he just pitched one right on the pads to leave Sammy guessing, trapped leg before without score and at 202 for 7, a chance for India to pull off the thriller. Ravi Rampaul the new man in and there it was, when the umpires finally declaring, the LIGHT wasn't good enough to continue. Bridgetown Test ended in a draw. Like the first innings, Ishant Sharma again bowled well and returned with the figures of four for 53, a superb bowling performance with a tally of ten wickets and the Man of the Match Award. Much of the time in Barbados was ruined by rain and bad light and even on day fifth when there appeared to be some thriller, the bad light turned out to be the culprit. India had declared their second innings at 269 for 6 and again Laxman turned out to be the chief scorer hitting a solid 87 including 8 boundaries. Followed by Rahul Dravid 55 and Abhinav Mukund 48. Fidel Edwards took 5 for 76. The third Test between the two teams would be played at Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica from July 6-10.
