New Delhi: India 'A' came from behind to register a comfortable six-wicket win over Trinidad and Tobago in the Carib Beer Cup first-class cricket competition in Trinidad.In a match marred by poor umpiring and irate player behaviour, India 'A' bounced back after conceding a 46-run first innings lead to win the four-day contest by virtue of some spectacular spin bowling and solid fourth-day batting by opener Connor Williams on Monday.In reply to the local side's 261 in the first innings, the tourists managed only 215. But they hit back to skittle out the hosts for 181 in the second innings before proceeding to overhaul the target of 228 in 66.5 overs.While seamers Lakshmipathy Balaji and Avishkar Salvi made inroads into Trinidad and Tobago's first innings, both of them picking four wickets each, leg spinner Amit Mishra and left-arm spinner Murali Karthik were the wreckers-in-chief in the second innings, claiming five for 30 and four for 57 respectively.But it was the left-handed opening batsman Williams who got the man-of-the-match award for his gutsy 89 (177 balls, 9x4) against some spirited fast bowling led by Test discard Marlon Black.The Indians felt they would have done better if it was not for the poor umpiring.PTI
