INDIA FIGHT BACK AGAINST WEST INDIES IN BRIDGETOWN

Online search giant Google has launched a new social networking website in its latest attempt to take on Facebook, which now claims more than 500m users.
India's bowlers hit back after their batsmen suffered two heavy collapses to be all out for just 201 on the opening day of the second Test against West Indies in Barbados on Tuesday.

The tourists took the late wickets of Adrian Barath, Lendl Simmons and Darren Bravo to leave the hosts 30-3.

Home bowlers Devendra Bishoo, Ravi Rampaul and Fidel Edwards had each collected three-wicket hauls earlier.

VVS Laxman top-scored for India with a battling 85.

Suresh Raina hit 53 as India, who completed a convincing 63-run first Test victory inside four days in Kingston, appeared to gain a slight edge on day one.

Rampaul attacked India's top order aggressively in the first session, claiming three wickets for four runs to leave India 44 for four at lunch.

Though Laxman and Raina steadied their team's first innings in a wicketless second session, West Indies made a serious breakthrough again after tea to turn 147 for four into 201 all out.

Windies captain Darren Sammy won the toss on an overcast morning, with his decision to bowl first soon paying dividends.

Abhinav Mukund departed in the second over, lobbing a simple catch to Marlon Samuels at gully off the bowling of Rampaul, while Rahul Dravid did not fare much better, contributing five before edging a fine delivery from Sammy to wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh.

Veteran Laxman fell, eventually, to Bishoo 15 runs short of his century after being caught at backward point by Adrian Barath.

Barath, with three, was the first to lose his wicket for the hosts while Simmons perished soon afterwards before Bravo was caught behind for nine in the final over of the day..
