A five-for from pacer Raymond Reifer devastated the India A batting line-up to give Windies A the advantage in the second unofficial Test at Taunton on Wednesday.

Chasing a first innings total of 302, India A, in a similar fashion to the first unofficial Test, struggled to navigate a hostile Windies bowling attack, crumbling for 192 in response to West Indies A's first innings total of 302. 

The regional team got the early breakthrough when another quick Oshane Thomas, who executed a demolition job of his own after claiming 3 for 66, had opener Ravikumar Samarth caught for 10 with 36 runs on the board. 

Reifer then removed his opening partner Abhimanyu Easwaran (23) two overs later and the fast bowling duo went on to prise out India A’s first four wickets.  Reifer ended with overall figures of 5 for 50.  Ankit Bawne did his best to steady India A's innings with a patient 43 off 92 balls but wickets fell at regular intervals as Reifer and Thomas kept up the two-pronged attack.'s

In response to India A innings, Windies A were 192 for 6 for a lead of 302 with four wickets remaining.
