Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni defended the decision not to press for a win in the third and final Test against the West Indies here, saying that his side could have lost the match while going for the target.
India lost their third wicket after lunch as Abhinav Mukund fell to Devendra Bishoo after a well made 62 on day three of the third and final Test against the West Indies at Dominica, Roseau on Friday. Mukund was caught at forward short leg by Adrian Barath.
Ishant Sharma has signaled a rejuvenation to his bowling after a series of dismal seasons. In this tour of the Caribbean, he may be leading a so-called second-string Indian attack, but that hasn't deterred him from shining through himself. 10 wickets was his glowing contribution at Bridge Town, Barbados and now at Dominica, he has garnered another five-for and counting.
In what could be a big blow to the Indian team ahead of the third Test here, two of India's best fast bowlers Ishant Sharma and Praveen Kumar on the tour sustained injuries in a collision while playing football.
