West Indies Take To Crease Again Today

News Americas, Kingston, Jamaica, Tues. June 21, 2011: The West Indies cricket squad will resume their first innings response in their first test match against India today when they take the crease at Sabina Park on 34 for 1.

On Monday, fast bowler Fidel Edwards, 29, bagged four wickets for 56 runs from 16 overs on his return to the West Indies team to help dismiss the Indian side for 246 in their first innings on the opening day of the first Test.

“It was a good feeling to get back onto the field and doing so well, after not playing for so long, so it was a good start for me,” said Edwards, who was recalled to the team following a career-threatening back injury.
