In the India-A innings, skipper Hanuma Vihari (55 off 139 balls) and wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha (62 off 66 balls) added 86 for the fifth wicket after the visitor was in a spot of bother at 48 for four.

Chemar Holder (three for 47) and Frazer (three for 53) were the pick of the bowlers for West Indies-A.
