  • After the Tea break, West Indies should look to survive the rest of the Day with minimal damage. The visitors, on the other hand, would be looking to nip out a few early wickets. It should be an absorbing session of cricket. Join us in a little while as the hosts will come out to bat for the first time in this Test match.
  • For the hosts, Jason Holder and Rahkeem Cornwall were the pick of the bowlers. The skipper, in particular was excellent and picked up his sixth five-wicket haul in Tests. The debutant also played a good supporting role, picking up three wickets. They will be disappointed though as they would feel that they have conceded a few too many runs here.
  • If the first session was a shared one, this one was definitely India's. They added 80 runs in the span of 22 overs. Hanuma Vihari and Ishant sharma continued the good work after the Lunch break and led India to a total above 400. Vihari got to his first Test century in the process while Sharma played an innings like a top order batsman with a well deserved fifty. India would feel that they have got enough on the board. It was Agarwal and Kohli in the early part of the innings who were brilliant with the bat and the middle order continued to milk the bowlers to give them a very good score on this wicket.
  • 140.1 OUT! CAUGHT! Sixth five-fer for the West Indies skipper which also brings up 100 Test scalps for him. Vihari is the last man to be dismissed. Holder bowls this one full and just outside off, Vihari looks to clear the mid on fielder but gets a thick outside edge on it. The ball goes high in the air towards mid off where Kemar Roach runs back, settles himself under it and takes a good catch. India finish their first innings on 416 and have set a stiff total in front of the hosts.
  • Jason Holder brings himself back on. He will want to end India's innings.
  • 139.6 BEATEN! Excellent over from Cornwall. It is a flighted delivery around off, Bumrah looks to defend but misses the ball completely. 416/9
  • 139.5 Loopy delivery on middle, Bumrah plays it to short leg.
  • 139.4 Looped ball on middle, Bumrah defends this one.
  • 139.3 Flighted delivery on middle, Bumrah blocks it out.
  • Jasprit Bumrah is the last man coming in for India.
  • 139.2 OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Third wicket for the debutant Cornwall here. It is a short delivery outside off, Shami looks to cut but gets a thick outside edge straight to the keeper Hamilton who takes an easy catch. The ball bounces a little bit more and Shami fails to cope up with it. Very little celebration from the Windies here.
  • 139.1 Good length ball on off, Vihari shuffles and tucks it towards square leg to take a single.
  • 138.6 Short ball on middle, Shami flicks it towards fine leg. 415/8
  • 138.5 Short delivery on middle, Vihari punches this off the back foot towards the off side and takes a single.
  • Mohammed Shami is the next man in for the visitors. There are no signs of the declaration being signaled by skipper Kohli and Shami would be looking to go all out attack here.
  • 138.4 OUT! CAUGHT! Ishant Sharma's brilliant innings comes to an end. Sharma comes down the track to this loopy delivery and tries to slog it away for a maximum but does not time it well. He gets a top edge towards deep mid-wicket where Hetmyer takes a simple catch. A magnificent 112-run partnership is over and it has led India to a commanding position. West Indies will be looking to bundle out the visitors quickly now.

  • 136.2 On the pads of Vihari, he flicks it towards square leg and takes a single.

  • Kraigg Brathwaite is into the attack now,
  • 135.6 Loopy delivery on middle, Vihari blocks it out. 404/7
  • 135.5 DROPPED! Cornwall drops it off his own bowling. Bowls a loopy delivery on middle, Ishant comes down the track and plays this drive uppishly and hard but straight towards the bowler. Cornwall attempts to catch it but is unable to hold onto it. A single is taken in the meantime.

  • 134.5 Full delivery on middle, Vihari pushes this to mid on.

  • 134.3 Back of a length delivery on middle, Vihari pushes this to cover.

  • 132.3 Good length delivery on middle, Sharma blocks this back to the bowler.
  • 132.2 FOUR! Sharma gets in on the act as he lifts this short delivery outside off over the slip cordon and into the third man fence for a boundary.
  • 132.1 Maiden Test hundred for Vihari and he breathes a huge sigh of relief. Whole of the Indian dressing room stands up and applauds him. Full and on the pads of Vihari, he flicks it towards mid-wicket and sets off for the single. The fielder there has a shy at the keeper's end but misses. Ishant was well in anyway and even if that had hit, it wouldn't have made a difference. Vihari takes off his helmet and celebrates with his bat held up high. A huge moment for any cricketer to get to his first Test hundred.
  • 131.6 Looped up delivery on middle, Vihari flicks it to square leg and takes a single. With that, Hanuma moves to 99. Good over for India here as eight runs came off it. 389/7

  • 130.2 Back of a length delivery on off, Vihari pushes this to point where Chase is sloppy in cleaning it up. The ball goes through and allows the batsman to take a single.
  • 130.1 Good length ball outside off, Vihari leaves it alone.
  • DRINKS! A very good hour for India as they have added 43 runs without losing a wicket. Ishant Sharma has swiftly moved into his 40s whereas Vihari is taking his own sweet time to get to his first Test ton. Skipper Kohli might just be waiting for their personal milestones to get completed before announcing the declaration.
  • 129.6 Looped up ball on middle, Ishant flicks this nicely towards fine leg and before the fielder cleans up, the batters take a couple. 379/7
  • 129.5 BEATEN! Flighted delivery outside off, Ishant attempts to defend but fails to put bat on it. Good comeback from Chase.
  • 129.4 FOUR LEG BYES! Roston bowls a flighted delivery outside leg, Ishant looks to sweep but misses. The ball goes through the keeper's gloves and into the fine leg fence. The keeper must have been blinded by Sharma's bat here.

  • 128.1 Good length ball around off, Ishant pushes this to point.
  • Kemar Roach is back on. 26-9-60-1 from Roach so far. He will be looking to break this frustrating stand from the visitors.
  • 127.6 Good length delivery on off, Vihari defends it off the front foot. 364/7
  • 127.5 FOUR! Poor ball from Gabriel. Gabriel bowls this full delivery on the pads of Vihari and he obliges as he plays a lovely flick towards the mid-wicket region for a boundary. A boundary after a long time for him. He moves into the 90s here.

  • 125.5 Back of a length delivery on middle, Vihari plays it to mid on.
  • Ian Bishop was just saying before this delivery about how Gabriel should bowl an inswinger. Gabriel comes up with one and totally deceives Vihari. Looks like Mr. Bishop has some telepathic connection with Shannon.
  • 125.4 OHH! Bowls an inswinger this time does Gabriel. All the balls before this were outswingers. Vihari fails to read it and leaves this alone. It is a brilliant set up here from Gabriel who almost broke this stand with this ball.
  • 125.3 Good length delivery around the fourth stump line, Vihari defends this to the off side.
  • 125.2 Full delivery around off, Vihari drives this towards mid off.

  • The hosts are again out in the middle after India negotiated the first session of the day pretty well. Skipper Jason Holder is followed by his teammates. Vihari and Sharma are also out in the middle with the latter taking strike. Rahkeem Cornwall will start the proceedings for the hosts after Lunch. An attacking field for Cornwall as the hosts go for broke. One silly point, one short leg and two slips in place for Ishant Sharma.
  • ... Day 2, Session 2 ...
  • India would look to score around the 350-run mark. West Indies, on the other hand, should look to wrap things up quickly here before things go out of hand. It promises to be an exciting session ahead. Join us back in a while.
  • It is Lunch on Day 2 of this Test match. It has been a shared session here as India have added valuable runs with Vihari scoring a well compiled fifty. The West Indian bowlers were good especially their skipper who continued from where he left off yesterday. He picked the vital wicket of Rishabh Pant on the first ball of the day. Jadeja and Vihari continued to score at a slow pace before Jadeja lost his patience and threw his wicket away.
  • 117.6 Outside off again Vihari lets it go. LUNCH ON DAY 2! 336/7
  • 117.5 Length ball just outside off, pushed towards mid on by Vihari.
  • 117.4 Vihari goes after this wide one but misses his slash at it.
  • 117.3 Vihari shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 117.2 Oh dear. Direct hit and Ishant was gone for all money. He was literally sold a dummy down the river there and had no way to go. But now, to add salt to the wound, the batsmen take an overthrow as well. It was a length ball just outside off, Vihari pushed this towards cover-point and set off for a single. Now, one cannot blame Ishant for not responding at all. He is a fast bowler and would have looked at the clock and probably thought, Lunch is around the corner. Suddenly, he is called for a quick single. Now, he is in no position to respond and starts scurrying towards the keeper's end. He knows he is gone and gives up pretty early when he sees Kraigg Brathwaite pick up the ball. The former skipper takes an aim and has a shy at the stumps at the striker's end, but on the run. That causes some imbalance and he misses it, with Sharma heaving a sigh of relief. The ball goes towards deep backward square leg and in the meantime, Vihari calls his partner for another run.
  • 117.1 Outside off by Holder, Hanuma leaves this one alone.
  • 116.6 Shorter in length this time on middle, Ishant defends it back to the bowler. 334/7

  • 116.2 Looped up ball on middle, Vihari pushes this to long on and takes a single.
  • 116.1 Flighted delivery on middle, Vihari defends it to the leg side.
  • 115.6 On middle and off, Sharma blocks it out. 331/7
  • 115.5 Down the leg side, Sharma knows exactly where his stumps are and leaves it alone.
  • 115.4 Sharma defends it from within the crease towards mid off.
  • 115.3 Vihari drives this through the covers. The batters have run through for a single.
  • 115.2 NOT OUT! Missing the leg pole and Vihari survives. Holder bowls a length ball outside off and it is coming back into Vihari. He misses his flick to get hit on the pad. The Windies players appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Vihari has a chat with Ishant and goes for the review. The replays roll in. Ultra Edge shows no edge on that one. Ball Tracker comes in, pitching outside off, impact in line, but GOING OVER THE LEG POLE. Successful review for India and their two reviews remain intact. Vihari is still at the crease although riding his luck a bit.
  • Review time! Hanuma Vihari has been given out here. He immediately goes for the review here. It looks close. Lets see what happens here.
  • 115.1 Beaten! Holder bowls a peach of a delivery! Vihari looks to defend this one but misses as he does so down the wrong line.
  • 114.6 Another fuller one, blocked out by Sharma onto the ground. 330/7

  • 114.3 On the pads of Ishant, this time he flicks it off his pads towards square leg and takes a single.
  • 114.2 FOUR! Aggresive from Ishant. Tossed up on middle and off, Ishant slog sweeps it over square leg for a boundary. Unusual from Ishant this.
  • 114.1 Flatter one on middle and leg, pushed towards square leg by Vihari and he takes a single.
  • 113.6 BEATEN! Excellent over from Holder comes to an end. Coming to this ball, it is bowled on a length around off, Ishant looks to defend but misses it completely. 323/7
  • 113.5 Bowls a full delivery this time on the legs, Ishant who had moved towards the off side looks to flick but misses.
  • 113.4 Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 113.3 Good length ball on off, Ishant defends it to point.
  • 113.2 Good length ball on middle, Vihari plays it to mid-wicket and takes a single.
  • 113.1 FOUR OVERTHROWS! What was Ishant and Vihari doing here? Ishant defends this good length ball towards the off side and is called by Vihari for a run here. Brathwaite comes to the ball quickly and has a shy at the stumps. He misses and the ball races to the long on fence for a boundary. Bonus runs for India here. 5 runs for India here. Had the fielder hit, Ishant would have been out as he was well out. He survives to fight another Day.
  • Jason Holder is back!
  • 112.6 FOUR! Great shot by Vihari and he is looking to go on the offensive here. Short again this time, Vihari rocks onto the back foot and slams it through mid-wicket for another boundary. 12 off the over and a dropped catch! 317/7
  • 112.5 Short outside off, cut to point by Vihari.
  • 112.4 FOUR! Punished by Vihari immediately. On the pads this time by Cornwall and Vihari pounces it as he flicks this one towards mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 112.3 DROPPED! John Campbell is the man again just like the first Test match. Vihari looks to lunge forward and defend this ball on the off side. He gets a thick outside edge on it and the ball goes wide to the right of first slip where John Campbell is positioned. He dives in an attempt to catch it. He gets his right hand on it but is unable to hold onto it. Hanuma survives and he will now be looking to make the most of it.
  • 112.2 Tossed up ball around off, Vihari blocks it out.
  • 112.1 FOUR! Tossed up ball outside off, Vihari paddles this one nicely towards the fine leg fence for a boundary. Much needed runs for the Men In Blue.

  • Ishant Sharma is the next batsman in for the visitors. He played a gritty innings in the last Test and will be looking to do the same here again.
  • 110.1 OUT! CAUGHT! Jadeja throws his wicket away after being patient for a long time. It is a flighted delivery on middle, Jadeja goes for the slog sweep over mid-wicket but gets a top edge on it which goes way up in the air. Darren Bravo at mid on positions himself under it and takes a simple catch. It was looking like Jadeja was itching to go for the big shot here and in doing so, he perishes. Cornwall provides the crucial breakthrough for the hosts.
  • 109.6 Vihari plays that one off the front foot and onto the ground. 302/6
  • 109.5 The batsman shoulders arms to let that one through.
  • 109.4 Quick and smart running by Jadeja. Roach bowls this one fuller and on off, Jadeja pushes this towards Gabriel at mid on. He sets off immediately knowing that Gabriel will not be quick enough to run him out. If there was anyone else over there, this could have been close.
  • 109.3 Beaten! Beauty by Roach. In the corridor of uncertainty, on a length. The ball pitches and moves away from Jadeja as he tries to fend at it. It goes past his outside edge by a whisker.
  • 109.2 This one is way outside off, carries to Hamilton behind the wickets at a comfortable height. The moisture seems to have disappeared a bit and the surface seems to be a bit harder than yesterday too.
  • 109.1 Length ball around the fifth stump line, Jadeja leaves it alone.
  • 108.6 Similar ball, similar result. Tossed up on leg and pushed to mid-wicket by Vihari. Another maiden over by Cornwall. 301/6

  • 104.3 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 104.2 Top edged but safe! This time Cornwall tosses it up outside off, Vihari goes down on one knee and tries to sweep. He gets a top edge on it and the ball skies towards the short fine leg region. The fielder hares after it but cannot get to it as the batters take one.
  • 104.1 On the pads to start off after drinks by Cornwall, Vihari pushes this towards mid-wicket.
  • DRINKS! It has been slow going for India in the first hour of Day 2. They have added 31 runs in the 14 overs bowled so far with the loss of Rishabh Pant on the first ball of the Day. Jadeja and Vihari are batting well here and should look to take India close to 350. West Indies bowlers have been excellent with their lines and lengths. They have kept the run flow in check here. The hosts should look to wrap up the innings here.
  • 103.6 Outside off again, Jadeja tries to put bat on ball on this one but misses it altogether due to the movement on it. 295/6
  • 103.5 Another length ball outside off, Jadeja does not fiddle at it.
  • 103.4 Good fielding by John Campbell. Jadeja plays this length ball off the back foot towards point where Campbell dives to his right and saves at least a couple for the hosts.
  • 103.3 Outside off, length ball. Left alone by RJ.
  • 103.2 Length ball on middle and leg, it hits the pads of Vihari and goes towards square leg as they take one.
  • 103.1 This shows just how sure Vihari is where his wickets are. This is a length ball coming into Vihari, he shuffles across and shoulders arms to it. It was close to the stumps as the ball went past him but he was never in doubt.

  • 99.2 Back of a length delivery, Vihari defends it off the back foot.

  • 98.5 FOUR! Off the shoulder of Jadeja's bat. Holder bowls this one on a good length around off, Jadeja looks to tap it onto the pitch but the ball hits the shoulder of Jadeja's bat. It flies over the slip cordon and into the third man fence.
  • 98.4 Length ball outside off, Jadeja pushes this off the back foot towards point.
  • 98.3 Fullish on middle and leg, Vihari blocks it out towards mid on and takes a quick single. The fielder there takes a shy at the bowler's end and hits but it looks like Vihari is well in. The umpire takes it upstairs for the confirmation. The replays roll in and yes, HV is indeed well in.
  • Third umpire has been called in to check for a run out. Vihari is the man in question.
  • 98.2 The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 98.1 The batsman shoulders arms to let that one through.
  • 97.6 The batsman defends it from within the crease. 281/6

  • 97.1 Good length ball on off, Jadeja defends it off the back foot.
  • Shannon Gabriel is on!
  • 96.6 FOUR! Fifty for Vihari although in fortunate fashion. Holder bowls this on a length just outside off, Vihari tries to push it towards point but gets an inside edge on it. He almost chops it onto the stumps but he is fortunate as it misses the timber and goes towards the fine leg fence. Third half ton for Vihari and he will be looking to convert this into his first ton. 281/6
  • 96.5 This is again wide outside off and left alone by Jadeja. Hamilton has a shy at the keeper's end and hits but Jadeja is well in. The ball deflects off the timber towards the leg side and a run is taken.
  • 96.4 Excellent length by Holder here. This has pitched on a good length here on middle, it straightens and hits Jadeja on the box as he misses his flick. He looks to be in some pain here.

  • Ravindra Jadeja is the new man in.
  • 90.1 OUT! BOWLED! Brilliant start from the hosts as Pant has been bowled over. Holder steams in and rocks Pant over on the first ball of the day. He bowls this one on a length just outside off and shapes back in after pitching. Pant goes for a push off the first ball of the day but misses the line and the ball crashes into middle and off. Rash by Pant this and Holder is delighted. Four wickets for him in this innings so far.
  • We are all set to begin Day 2. The Windies players are in a huddle and make their way out to the middle. The Indian batters, Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari are also out in the middle with the former on strike. Jason Holder, the West Indies skipper will start the proceedings on Day 2 for the hosts.
  • Pitch Report - Daren Ganga is down for the pitch report. He says that there is still a layering of grass but it is a bit uneven now after the first day's play. Ian Bishop is also with Daren Ganga. He too points out that there are some indentations on the pitch and there will be some movement off the pitch because of them. On Virat Kohli's approach against the Windies bowlers, Bishop says that the batters have to be sharp and defend well. Bishop suggests that they need to wait for the loose deliveries and capitalise on them. The bowlers need to get their length right and hit the good length area consistently. The pitch is favouring the seamers and Ganga says that they will be crucial for both the sides.
  • On Day 1, the visitors dominated the proceedings right from the word go but the West Indies kept pegging them back at regular intervals which has kept the hosts in the game. The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli and Mayank Agarwal each got their half tons. Holder was the pick of the bowlers as he bowled excellent lines and lengths as he picked up three wickets. Vihari and Pant are out in the middle and they will be looking to take this game out of the hosts' reach and take India's total around the 400-run mark. The Windies, on the other hand, will look to bundle out the Men In Blue around 300. Join us in a while to find out.
  • Greetings and welcome to Day 2 of the second Test match between India and West Indies. The conditions look perfect for a good day of cricket as the sun is shining in Jamaica and it should be an exciting Day of Test cricket.
  • ... Day 2, Session 1 ...
  • Come Saturday, the Indian batters will look to score above 350 which should be a very good score on this wicket. West Indies will look to strike early on the second day to keep India's total in check. Do join us for the action on Day 2 at 0930 local (1430 GMT). See ya!
  • For the hosts, Holder along with Roach, were exceptional the entire day but the latter did not have a lot of luck. Rahkeem Cornwall, on debut, looked on song in the first session but did not threaten much during the latter phase of the day. Gabriel, who never looked 100 percent on the field, could not find his rhythm and struggled to bowl well. Not the kind of bowling performance the Windies skipper would've wanted after electing to bowl first.
  • Earlier in the day, India started well with their openers giving them a decent start before Jason Holder struck to remove KL Rahul. Holder bowled superbly and tested the Indian batters with his superb line and length. He got rid of the Indian skipper Kohli with a superb delivery. However, before getting out, Kohli stitched important stands with Agarwal and Rahane to grind the Windies out.
  • India end Day 1 with an upper hand. After Virat Kohli's early wicket in the final session, Pant and Vihari have stitched a handy unbeaten 62-run stand between them. Roach and Gabriel tested the duo with the second new ball but Pant and Vihari have managed to stay in the middle.
  • 89.6 FOUR! Last ball of the day, and Vihari ends it with a boundary! This one is also full and on the pads, he flicks it wide of mid-wicket and the ball trudges towards the fence. STUMPS ON DAY 1. 264/5
  • 89.5 Good length ball outside off, left alone by Vihari.
  • 89.4 FOUR! On the pads of Vihari, he clips this one towards mid-wicket for a boundary. Great shot this!
  • 89.3 Fullish one wide outside off, Vihari looks to push this towards the off side but gets an inside edge onto the pads.
  • 89.2 Length ball wide outside off, Vihari shoulders arms to it.
  • 89.1 Last over of the day. Roach steams in and bowls a good length ball outside off, pushed back towards the bowler by Vihari.
  • 88.6 Fuller ball outside off, Pant strokes it straight to mid off. 256/5
  • 88.5 Shortish one on the body, tucked towards the leg side for a run.
  • 88.4 Short one on the body of Pant. He swivels to hammer this towards mid-wicket. Pant hared for the third run as the ball went towards the fence. The fielder stops the ball and throws the ball back to the keeper who breaks the bails but Vihari was well in.
  • 88.3 Good length ball outside off, goes further away from Pant as he leaves this one alone.
  • 88.2 Fuller one on middle and leg, blocked towards mid-wicket by Pant.
  • 88.1 Length ball down the leg side. Pant goes for the flick but can't get bat on ball. The keeper pouches it down the leg side.
  • 87.6 Beaten! Length ball around off, shapes away from Vihari's push and goes past the outside edge. 252/5
  • 87.5 Huge appeal from Roach but nothing from the umpire. Roach dishes out a fuller ball on middle and leg as Vihari looks to flick but misses. The ball goes on to hit the pads. That looked to be going down the leg side. By the way, Roach had overstepped on that delivery but the umpire did not spot that. Also, the Ball Tracker shows that it was going down the leg side. So, the umpire gets one decision right and one wrong.
  • 87.4 Straighter one on the pads this time, Pant whips it nicely through square leg for three. There was no one in that direction as the mid on fielder runs towards the ball. He is too slow to return the ball towards the bowler or the keeper which allows an extra run. 50-run stand between the two. Important stand this one after the wicket of skipper Virat Kohli. Also, 250 up for India with that.
  • 87.3 Too wide outside off again. Pant lets it go the keeper again.
  • 87.2 Another one in the channel on the same line, Pant lets it be. He may not want to take any risk at this moment in time.
  • 87.1 Length ball in the channel outside off, Pant leaves it alone.
  • 86.6 Bumper outside off, left alone by Vihari this time. 249/5
  • 86.5 Another bumper, this time on the body of Pant who swivels to hammer his pull along the ground towards square leg for a single.
  • 86.4 Good delivery and well left fron Pant. Nicely directed back of a length ball on off and middle, Pant does well to sway away.
  • 86.3 Shortish ball on the body, blocked towards the bowler off his back foot.
  • 86.2 Bumper down the leg side. Pant initially wanted to heave this but left it in the end.
  • 86.1 Fuller ball around off, blocked by Pant coming forward towards cover.
  • 85.6 Leading edge! Fuller ball on the pads for Pant this time. Rishabh looks to work it towards the leg side but the ball takes the leading edge and flies through the cover-point region. Hetmyer chases the ball as it races to the fence and dives to pull the ball back into play. Three runs taken. 248/5
  • 85.5 Wide outside off this time, Pant doesn't go after it and leaves it alone.
  • 85.4 Goes past the outside edge this time! Length ball closer to the off pole, Pant looks to push with hard hands but the ball shapes away and goes past the outside edge. Superb bowling this from Roach.
  • 85.3 Another length ball around off, left alone by Pant.
  • 85.2 Gets Pant driving this time and goes past the outside edge. Fuller ball around off, Pant throws his bat at it. Lucky not to get an edge on that one.

  • 84.6 Wide outside off, left alone by Vihari this time. 245/5
  • 84.5 Shortish ball this time, blocked by staying in the crease.
  • 84.4 FOUR! Another crunching drive from Vihari. Gabriel doesn't learn as he dishes out another fuller ball outside off. Vihari reads the length early and leans into the drive to cash in on it. It races to the cover fence in a jiffy.
  • 84.3 Another shortish length ball outside off, left alone again by Vihari.
  • 84.2 Back of a length ball outside off, Vihari sways away from it.
  • 84.1 FOUR! Poor start from Gabriel. Fuller ball outside off, Vihari leans forward and creams a cover drive for a boundary. Timed sweetly as it races to the fence. Gabriel's poor performance in the game continues.
  • Shannon Gabriel to share the new ball with Roach.
  • 83.6 Wide outside off. Pant lets it go to the keeper. 237/5
  • 83.5 Slightly fullish on middle and leg, Vihari looks to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. The ball rolls towards fine leg and the batters take a leg bye.

  • 75.2 Flatter on middle and leg, blunts this one close to the short leg fielder.
  • 75.1 Flatter on the pads, tapped towards short leg.
  • Jason Holder is going off the field temporarily. Not sure what the reason is. Let's hope that he comes back soon though.
  • 74.6 Beaten! Beauty from Holder to end the over. Length ball in the channel just outside off this time, Vihari has a poke at it but the ball shapes away to go past the hanging bat of Vihari. 207/5

  • 74.1 Fuller ball around off, pushed straight to cover.
  • DRINKS! West Indies are truly on top for maybe the first time in the series as the visitors are 5 down with just about 200 runs on the board. Jason Holder is leading his side well today as he has taken three wickets thus far in the innings and he will be looking to continue it as the hosts look to end the Indian innings today itself.

  • 72.6 Bumper on the body this time. Pant didn't know what he was doing there as the ball takes the edge and flies towards the fine leg fielder. Falls short as he takes a run to get off the mark. 203/5
  • 72.5 Shortish ball this time around off, Pant taps it towards gully.
  • 72.4 Goes slightly fuller this time, bowled around off. Pant pushes it towards point.
  • 72.3 Another ball outside off on a good length, left alone by Pant again.
  • 72.2 Wide outside off, left alone by Pant.
  • Rishabh Pant walks out to the middle.
  • 72.1 OUT! CAUGHT! Holder strikes for the third time in the day. Kohli is outta here! Superb delivery from the West Indies skipper to find the outside edge of the Indian skipper. Length ball, shaping away from Kohli who lunges forward to push it with hard hands but the ball finds the outside edge and it carries to keeper Hamilton. The umpire is checking for the front foot but it is absolutely fine. Kohli has to walk back. India lose their skipper and West Indies are into the lower middle order now.

  • Skipper Holder is back on! 15-6-26-2 from him so far in the day and probably the pick of the bowlers for the hosts.

  • 64.1 Flatter and shorter, flicked straight to mid-wicket by Kohli.

  • 62.1 The batsman has played it towards mid-wicket.
  • 61.6 FOUR LEG BYES! That looks close but the umpire is not interested this time. No reviews left for West Indies there and Roach was suggesting as if it hit high on the pads. It was a length ball which Kohli looked to block by coming forward but he was late into the shot and he gets hit on the pads. It went through keeper Hamilton and Cornwall at first slip. The ball trudges towards the third man fence while the Windies team are appealing. The Ball Tracker shows that this was hitting the timber but the impact was umpire's call. 169/4
  • 61.5 Fuller on off, blocked off his front foot by Kohli.
  • 61.4 Length ball around off, blocked towards cover.
  • 61.3 NOT OUT! Comfortably going down leg. Waste of a review from Holder and the Windies have now lost both reviews. Holder was not convinced but it seems like his bowler was adamant for that one and the skipper obliged. A length ball outside off, coming in with the angle, Vihari looked to flick but missed and was hit on the pads. Roach appealed and was the only one confidently doing so. Holder was not too keen but went with his bowler. Alas. Ball Tracker shows it to be missing leg. By a fair margin too.
  • REVIEW TIME! The umpire has given it not out but the hosts have challenged his decision. This looks to be going down the leg side to the naked eye.

  • 60.4 The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 60.3 The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads.
  • 60.2 Another fullish ball, flicked but short leg stops it well.
  • 60.1 Flatter one on middle, eased towards mid-wicket.
  • 59.6 Beaten! Tentative push from Vihari on the first ball which is in the channel outside off. Lucky not to edge that one. 164/4
  • Hanuma Vihari is the new man in.
  • 59.5 OUT! CAUGHT! Roach gets his first wicket as Rahane has been caught behind. Exactly the kind of start the hosts were after. Length ball outside off, Rahane is rooted to his crease as he pokes at the ball. The ball kisses the outside edge and goes straight to keeper Hamilton who is not going to miss out on that. Body blow this for the Indians.
  • 59.4 FOUR! Sweet timing! Bumper but the ball doesn't rise much. Rahane swivels to pull this towards deep square leg. The ball races to the fence quickly.
  • 59.3 Fuller ball, Rahane goes for the drive but gets an outside edge. Played with soft hands as the ball goes towards the second slip fielder.
  • 59.2 Length ball outside off, defended by Rahane towards mid off.
  • 59.1 Shortish ball around off, pushed through cover by Kohli. The point fielder dives to stop but can't get his hands to it. The ball goes towards sweeper cover. Three runs taken.
  • Welcome back for the final session of the first day's play. The West Indies players are back on the pitch. Kohli walks out to the middle with his deputy Rahane. Roach will start the proceedings for the West Indies. Skipper Virat Kohli will take strike.
  • ... Day 1, Session 3 ...
  • Last match's centurion Ajinkya Rahane joined skipper Kohli and the two have not looked in much trouble as they have added 42 unbeaten runs between them with skipper Kohli getting to yet another fifty. The duo will look to keep getting the runs and take India towards a commanding position. Holder and his men would want to get a few more wickets in the final session of the day. See you after the Tea break.
  • The Indians started well after Lunch with Agarwal raking up his 3rd half century. He along with Kohli were looking good before Holder arrived to break the stand. Roach and Cornwall looked good in phases but didn't trouble the two much. Gabriel's form and fitness will be an issue for the hosts.
  • The session goes to India one would say as they have managed to milk the runs comfortably and have just lost one wicket.
  • 58.6 Another shortish ball on the pads, Kohli tucks it fine down the leg side for a single. AND THAT IS TEA ON DAY 1. 157/3

  • 57.2 Coming down the track to push towards the bowler this time.
  • 57.1 Fullish ball on off, Kohli drives this through mid off with superb timing but can't beat the diving Kemar Roach. A half stop from Roach means Kohli can get a run though.
  • 56.6 Length ball around off, closer to the body of Rahane. He deadbats it towards the off side. 153/3
  • 56.5 No says Gabriel as he dishes a length ball. Leaves it alone.
  • 56.4 FOUR! Poor line from Gabriel and he has been punished by Rahane. Fullish ball outside off. Rahane leans into the shot and times the cover drive brilliantly to earn another boundary. Gavaskar on air is asking Gabriel to bowl a bouncer in the West Indian accent.
  • 56.3 Length ball around off, blocked towards cover.
  • 56.2 Shortish length coming into Rahane who blocks it nicely off his back foot.
  • 56.1 Fullish ball around off, blunts this one back to the bowler.

  • 55.1 Flighted ball on short of a length, pushed towards mid-wicket.
  • 54.6 Shortish ball outside off, left alone. 149/3
  • 54.5 Huge Appeal but not given. Fuller ball on the pads of Rahane who goes for a whip but can't get bat on ball and is hit flush on the pads. An appeal from West Indies but nothing from the umpire. Holder asks his bowler regarding the review but doesn't go for it. Looked to be going down leg.
  • 54.4 Shortish ball around off, Kohli tucks it towards point to get a single to reach to his half century. His 22nd in his Test career. A fighting knock this from the Indian skipper. He would look to convert this one into a big one.
  • 54.3 Fuller on off this time, Kohli comes forward to push towards cover.
  • 54.2 FOUR! Kohli is into the groove. Fuller ball outside off, Kohli leans into the drive and strokes it through the covers for a boundary. One short of his half century now.

  • 53.3 The batsman defends it from within the crease.

  • 52.6 Beaten! Cut him into half. Good length ball in the channel outside off. Kohli looks to block of his back foot but the ball sneaks past the bat and pad. Lucky not to edge or have his stumps shattered. 140/3

  • 52.1 Length ball outside off, Kohli looks to push but gets an inside edge onto the pads. Kohli wanted a run but is sent back by Rahane.
  • Shannon Gabriel is back on!
  • 51.6 Close! Presence of mind from Rahane saves him. Chase bowls this one shorter and on the body. Rahane looks to defend it with soft hands and is hit on the glove. The ball rolls onto his thigh pad and towards the stumps off his gloves. Just when the ball was close to hitting the wickets, Rahane turns around and pushes the ball away with his boot. 136/3
  • 51.5 Full and floated on middle and leg, pushed towards mid on.
  • 51.4 The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.

  • 50.2 Another shortish ball on middle, Kohli looks to push off his back foot but mistimes it on the leg side.
  • 50.1 Back of a length around off, Kohli punches this straight to point.
  • 49.6 Another one tossed up around off, pushed towards mid off. End of a good over from Chase. 136/3
  • 49.5 Chase goes full again, played out by Rahane.
  • 49.4 Just short! Shortish ball this one by Chase, Rahane goes back and cuts it towards the fielder at point. It goes uppishly but falls just short. The fielder does well to grab onto it and no runs are taken.

  • 49.2 Another one on floated and off, pushed back towards Chase.
  • 49.1 Flat and on off, pushed towards cover.

  • 48.6 Fuller and around off, pushed towards mid off by Kohli. 136/3
  • 48.5 Mixing it up here Holder. Short and outside off, Kohli gets on top of the bounce and pushes it towards point. This delivery was similar to the one which got him dismissed in Antigua.

  • 48.3 Shortish ball outside off again, tapped towards point.
  • 48.2 EDGY FOUR! Fuller ball outside off, Kohli goes for the drive but gets a thick outside edge. The ball races through the slip and gully cordon and to the fence. That was not an intentional shot but Kohli will take it.
  • 48.1 Short ball outside off, Kohli stands tall to push it towards point.
  • 47.6 FOUR! Crunched! First one for Rahane! Short ball outside off, enough time and room for Rahane to go back and time his cut superbly through cover-point. 132/3

  • 44.1 Length ball outside off, Rahane covers his stumps and shoulders arms.
  • DRINKS! The visitors started well after Lunch with Mayank reaching his third half ton. However, the hosts have pulled things back since then and look to be giving the Indian batters a run for their money. The Windies skipper, Holder dismissed Agarwal and the other bowlers have also been complementing him well. The Indian captain and vice captain are out in the middle and they will be looking to take the game away from the hosts just like they did in the first Test.
  • 43.6 Rahane prods forward and defends it straight back to Cornwall. 118/3

  • 40.6 Bumper outside off, Rahane ducks under it. 115/3
  • Ajinkya Rahane, India's vice captain walks out to the middle to partner his skipper. India in a tricky situation here and these two will have to navigate them out of it.
  • 40.5 OUT! CAUGHT! Catch number two for Cornwall at first slip, wicket number two for skipper Holder in this match. Agarwal can't do much after the half ton. A superb shortish ball on the fifth stump line, the ball shapes in as Agarwal looks to push this one towards the off side but it shapes a tad bit away as it comes closer to the bat. It takes the outside edge and goes straight to the safe hands of Cornwall. West Indies get a timely breakthrough.
  • 40.4 The batsman has stood up on his toes to play that one.
  • 40.3 Fuller on the pads this time. Kohli flicks it nicely through mid-wicket. The ball was racing to the fence but Darren Bravo hares after it and stops. Three run taken.

  • 39.3 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 39.2 Full ball outside off, pushed to the fielder at cover.
  • 39.1 NOT OUT! Agarwal had a hunch that he did not nick it and he was right. The decision has been overturned. Roach bowls this one around off, it swings away a bit and Agarwal misses his defensive shot. The Windies players from the slip cordon appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Roach didn't seem all that confident but is happy to see the finger lifted by the umpire. Agarwal quickly has a chat with his skipper and goes for the review without any hesitation. The replays roll in and Ultra Edge shows no spike. A successful review for India and Mayank's wicket is still intact. The sound was of the bat hitting the pad, as confirmed by Ultra Edge.
  • Agarwal has been given out caught behind but he has gone for a review after consulting his skipper Kohli. Roach didn't look convinced there as he didn't go for the appeal instantly. Let us see what Ultra Edge shows us.

  • 38.5 Holder mixes it up and goes fuller this time. Kohli pushes it towards mid off.

  • 38.3 Outside off again, but this time shorter. Kohli does not fiddle with it.
  • 38.2 Another fuller one around off, Kohli drives it through covers. It does not have the pace on it to get to the fence and the batters take two as the fielder mops it up.
  • 38.1 Full and on off, Kohli pushes it towards mid off.
  • Jason Holder is back on! He looked very sharp in the first session.
  • 37.6 Agarwal defends this one out back towards the bowler. End of an eventful over. 108/2
  • 37.5 The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 37.4 FOUR! Fifty up for Agarwal but in streaky fashion. This one was full and outside off, Agarwal goes for the drive but gets an outside edge on it which goes wide of third slip and into the third man fence. Third fifty for Mayank Agarwal in Test matches and he will be looking to carry on from here and get to a big score.
  • 37.3 Outside off, left alone again by Agarwal.
  • 37.2 EDGED AND FOUR! Too close for comfort here for Agarwal as he edges towards his half ton. This one was pitched around off and it nipped back in. Agarwal looks to defend but gets an inside edge on it. The ball hits his thigh pad, goes over the wickets and to the fine leg fence.
  • 37.1 Outside off, left alone by Agarwal.

  • Mayank Agarwal is looking in good touch out in the middle. Along with him is his skipper Virat Kohli who has survived a couple of close calls to stay in the middle. He would hope to make the most of the chances and go on to play a big innings. He'd also hope the same from Agarwal.
  • Hard fought session this one from both the sides. After a very good start from the Indian openers, skipper Jason Holder came into the attack to remove KL Rahul. Holder along with Kemar Roach bowled in good channels and didn't offer any freebies to the Indian batters.

It spins back in and hits Kohli on the pad. The Windies players appeal loudly but nothing from the umpire. After having a talk with his bowler, Holder goes for the review. Replays roll in and Ultra Edge shows no edge. Ball Tracker comes into play, pitching outside off, impact in line, going down leg. Good decision by the umpire.

  • West Indies have gone for a review after Kohli has failed to flick and is hit on the pads. Looked going down the leg side. No bat on that one. Let's see what Ball Tracking shows.

  • 16.5 OUT! Caught! Cornwall gets his first Test scalp. Shamarh Brooks takes it! Experts say that you should not cut a spinner on the first day of a Test match and maybe that's why. This one was short and around off by Cornwall, Pujara rocks back and looks to cut it past point. The extra bounce does him as he does not get decent enough contact on it.

  • 11.3 Good length ball outside off, Pujara lets it go to the keeper.

  • Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that the first session is going to be tough just like Antigua. They have to tough it out in the first session. Virat Kohli also suggests that they have advantage of putting runs on the board and put the Windies batting lineup under pressure. Kohli is hoping that they get a session when they are bowling where they can pick up some quick wickets. On being asked about some gaps that need to be fixed, Kohli says that they have to be more focused and precise. The small partnerships should be converted into bigger ones. The batters have always something to learn off the previous matches. On being asked about his team selections, he informs that there are no changes to the starting XI from the last match.
  • West Indies skipper, Jason Holder informs that the decision to bowl first is because there is a hint of green grass on the surface. On the changes in the team, he informs that there are two players who are coming in to make their debuts. Rahkeem Cornwall comes in to replace Miguel Cummins and Jahmar Hamilton replaces Shai Hope.
  • Toss - Heads is the call by Indian skipper Virat Kohli and... it is tails. India lose the toss and Jason Holder opts to field first.
  • Pitch report - Daren Ganga is out in the middle and says it is blue and sunny out in the middle. Daren Ganga states there is a tinge of green on the surface. There is good enough water content on the pitch. It is a flat track as well. Ganga informs that there should be something for the pacers and also for the batters. Ian Bishop suggests how historically, the pitch has had something for the spinners too in the latter days of the match. Further he says that Bumrah used the conditions well in the second innings of the last match and adapted to the conditions well. Daren Ganga informs that the average score is around 350 in the first innings and it reduces by 50 runs in the second innings. The pitch will reward all lengths of balls. Be it good length or just shorter, the pacers will get something off it.
  • Kohli's men were absolutely ruthless in dismantling the West Indies in the first Test match. The Windies, on the other hand, stood no chance against the hostile pace attack of the Indian bowlers. Another win here would mean Kohli's men continue their domination in the tour and win the series. However, the Windies have not lost a Test series at home in more than two years and would look to extend their run by stopping the Indians.
  • Hello and welcome to Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica. We are here for the coverage of the second Test match between West Indies and India. It is a bright and sunny day here in Jamaica. However, the situation for the hosts doesn't look bright at all. They have failed to win any of the matches in this tour so far as the Men In Blue have rolled them over in all formats.

West Indies Vs India Live Score (TEST) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • The hosts, on the other hand, were dismal with the bat yet again and they failed to cope up with the magic of Bumrah. Only Shimron Hetmyer was able to cross the 20-run mark. They will look to take early wickets here to have any chance of coming back into the game. The visitors, on the other hand, should look to extend their lead to above 400. Be back in a while.
  • An excellent bowling performance from India here. They have bowled out the Windies for just 117. Although they were made to toil here in the first half, they are still way ahead in the game. Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers as he picked his fifth 5-wicket haul in Test matches. He was unplayable on this wicket and there was nothing that the Windies batsman could do. Shami and Ishant also played excellent supporting roles with 2 and 1 wickets respectively.
  • So the Indians have bundled out West Indies for 117 and they lead by 299. However, Kohli wants to bat yet again. THEY HAVE NOT ENFORCED THE FOLLOW ON!
  • 47.1 OUT! CAUGHT! West Indies' innings is done and dusted. Loopy fuller ball from Jadeja. Roach looks to heave this inside out over the covers but all he gets it is a thick outside edge. The ball lobs straight to Mayank Agarwal in the covers. Now, will Kohli enforce the follow-on with a lead of 299 runs?
  • 46.6 And again. Another shortish ball around off, this time Gabriel goes for the push but is beaten. A very good over this one from Ishant. 117/9
  • 46.5 Another short ball on off and middle. Gabriel does well to sway away from it.
  • 46.4 Shortish ball into the body of Gabriel. He stands tall and blunts it onto the pitch.
  • Shannon Gabriel is the new man in.
  • 46.3 OUT! CAUGHT! Ishant breaks the stand. Shortish length ball outside off, Hamilton is tempted to go for the punch but the ball takes the outside edge and goes straight to skipper Kohli at third slip. He is not going to spill this one. A timely wicket this for India because these two were frustrating them with this stand. Follow-on still on the cards?
  • 46.2 Good length ball around off, Hamilton cuts it past cover for a couple. Jadeja runs in from point and cleans it up.
  • 46.1 Full delivery on middle, Hamilton pushes this towards mid on.
  • DRINKS! West Indies have done well here as they have negotiated the first hour nicely with the loss of just one wicket. They would look to get close to avoiding the follow-on. The visitors, on the other hand, will consider themselves unlucky as there have been many plays and misses but nothing has picked up the edge. They will look to wrap the innings as quickly as possible.

  • 44.2 A surprising review has been taken by Kohli! Another shortish ball around off, Roach stands tall to push it towards the off side but it beats the outside edge. Kohli and co. are thinking of a review all of a sudden and they eventually go for it. It never looked as if there was an edge. Ultra Edge rolls in and confirms the same. This is a very poor review from the Indians. Wonder if Pant had any say in this review.

  • 39.5 Typical fast bowler's trait. Gets hit for a boundary and dishes a bouncer next ball. Roach ducks under it nicely.
  • 39.4 FOUR! Flicked nicely. Length ball angled into the batter, Roach glances this nicely and because of the pace of Shami, the ball races to the fine leg fence in no time. Very good looking shot that one from Roach.
  • 39.3 Another solid defense from Roach. Good length ball in the channel, pushed back to the bowler.

  • Kemar Roach comes out to the middle.
  • 37.1 OUT! CAUGHT! Shami gets the breakthrough for the Indians. Back of a length ball on the body of Cornwall. It shapes in from a fifth stump line. Cornwall looks to fend it off but the ball lobs towards gully. Rahane runs forward to gobble the ball comfortably. Cornwall couldn't have done much with this delivery. West Indies still trailing by 319 runs. 120 runs away from avoiding the follow-on.

  • 33.2 Outside off on a good length. Left alone.
  • 33.1 Whoa! What a start from Shami! Targets the stumps straightaway. Cornwall looks to flick but is hit straight on the pads. This looked going down the leg side. Shami along with the entire slip cordon puts a loud appeal but umpire is unmoved. Good decision by Kohli by not going for the review as Ball Tracker rolled in to show it was going down the leg side.
  • We are all set to begin Day 3. The Indian players are making their way to their Respective fielding positions. Rahkeem Cornwall and Jahmar Hamilton also make their way out to resume their innings. Mohammed Shami will start the proceedings for the visitors.
  • Daren Ganga is there for the pitch report. He says that wear and tear will be seen on the pitch which is expected on the third day. He further states that the bowlers should look to make use of the easterly winds. Says that Bumrah made good use of the conditions. Ian Bishop joins him for the pitch report and has heaps of praises for Bumrah. He further adds that Bumrah worked wonders when he changed his end. Ganga further states the spinners will also have an impact as they have seen the ball spin from Day 1. Bishop says that the pitch is hard now and every bowler will have a part to play.
  • Welcome to the coverage of Day 3 of the Test match between India and West Indies. The visitors are well ahead in the game with a strong lead of 329 runs. They have a great chance of enforcing the follow-on. Bumrah was excellent with the ball and would like to continue that today as well. What should we say about the hosts? Their batting was not upto the mark to say the least. Now coming into Day 3, their first target would be to avoid the follow-on. That looks fairly difficult with just three wickets in hand. Will they be able to produce any magic or will the visitors wrap the innings quickly? Join us in a while to find out.
  • ... Day 3, Session 1 ...
  • So, at the end of Day 2, West Indies trail India by 329 and they need 130 more to avoid the follow-on. Jahmar Hamilton and Rahkeem Cornwall are at the crease and there is not a lot of batting to come after that. It seems highly unlikely that they will be able to avoid the follow-on. If they do so, it will be nothing short of a miracle. Join us on Day 3 at 0930 local (1430 GMT). Till then, cheers and take care!
  • Speaking about the West Indies batting, the less said about it, the better. They needed their batters to step up but none of them delivered. Only Shimron Hetmyer managed to score above 20. Due to their poor show with the bat, they are now in disarray.
  • India started the day on a disappointing note as Pant was dismissed on the first ball itself but it has been all about the visitors since then. Hanuma Vihari got to his maiden Test ton and Ishant Sharma to his maiden Test half ton and courtesy them, India finished with a big first innings total. The only positive for the hosts was the 5-fer taken by their skipper, Jason Holder.
  • INDIA BOSSING THE GAME! That is the only thing one can say after the play on Day 2. First, they tired the West Indies players out on the field as they batted out the first two sessions of the day and later the Indian bowling attack (or should we say Jasprit Bumrah) dismantled the hosts' batting line-up by picking six out of the seven wickets that fell on Day 2 for the hosts.

  • 30.5 Beaten! Another similar ball but this time no edge by Cornwall.
  • 30.4 EDGED AND FOUR! Not sure whose catch that was but India surely had a chance there. This was bowled on a length on middle and off, Cornwall looks to block this off the back foot but does so inside the line. He gets a thick outside edge on it and the ball flies between Pant and Rahane at first slip. Pant had shuffled to his left early on and misjudged it while Rahane's dive to his left wasn't enough to reach it. The ball goes through them, and towards the third man fence. Cornwall is off the mark in streaky fashion.
  • 30.3 Another length ball on middle and off, pushed out by Cornwall.

  • 26.4 Shami bowls an inswinger this time. Holder looks to push this towards mid on but misses. It hits the pads of Holder and the Indian players appeal. The umpire denies it. The Indian players think about going over for the review but decide against it. Ball Tracker comes in and shows that this was missing leg. Good decision not to review this one by Indian skipper Kohli.
  • 26.3 Way wide outside the off stump, Jason leaves it alone.

India, on the other hand, were dealt a blow with Jasprit Bumrah going off the field. They will look to make further inroads before the day finishes.
  • 21.6 EDGED AND FOUR! The hosts are riding their luck here. Jadeja bowls this one full again and gets it to turn, Holder looks to block it but gets a thick outside edge on it as the ball goes towards the third man fence. 63/5

Rishabh Pant also lets this one through his gloves and the ball goes to the third man fence. Some Indian players thought there was an edge on it but the umpire's signal confirms that there isn't one.

Also admits they needed to bat a lot better and apply themselves which they failed to do in this series. On the pitch, states that the wicket was a good one and he has no complaints about it.
  • The Windies batters though did show signs of some fight with Brooks scoring a half ton. His first in Tests. A couple of other batters also showed some resilience but it was always going to be an uphill task. Once the man who scored the first half ton for Windies in this series was run out. They fell like a pack of cards with Jadeja and Shami being the stars as the two picked up three each. All-in-all it has been a dominating series for the Indians and they have justified why they are one of the best sides going around. Stay tuned for the presentation.
  • India did have the chance of enforcing the follow-on but they did not do so. They batted again and added 168 runs to the lead of 299 they got after bowling the Windies out for 117. India's best batters in the series did well for them as both Rahane and Vihari notched up half tons. The visitors then declared with around an hour to go on Day 3 and also managed to take 2 wickets.
  • In reply, the Windies batters once again had no answers to one of the best bowlers going around, Jasprit Bumrah. He demolished the Windies batting line-up with a 6-fer, including a hat-trick. Just the one Windies batter scored above 20 and after that only one result looked likely.
  • This game also turned out to be another one-sided one in favor of the Indians who did not lose a game on the whole tour. Everything, absolutely everything has gone wrong for the Windies right from the start. They won the toss and elected to field, a decision which could have been questioned. Yes, the conditions on Day 1 were suitable for bowling but the Windies bowlers did not make complete use of it. They let India score a massive score with Vihari being the star with a maiden ton. Kohli and Agarwal also made handy contributions.
  • Just less than two sessions is the answer to the question we asked in the opening text today. Another excellent performance by the Indian bowlers. It was even better in the second session as they made quick work of the remaining 6 wickets.
  • 59.5 OUT! BOWLED 'EM! End of the Windies innings! Jadeja gets the last man. He fires it on middle, Holder looks to hoick it but misses and the stumps are shattered. All smiles in the Indian camp as THEY WIN BY 257 RUNS AND TAKE THE SERIES 2-0!

  • 56.4 FOUR! A full toss and it is put away! It is on the pads, Holder flicks it through deep mid-wicket and it races away. Holder is scoring freely here.

  • DRINKS! Kemar Roach is the new man in.
  • 54.3 OUT! TAKEN! Another one bites the dust! It is all happening very quickly now. From 159 for 4 West Indies have slipped to 180 for 8. This is a top catch from Pant. It is on a length and around off, it jags back in. Cornwall ends up defending outside the line, it goes off the inside edge and to the left of Pant who dives and hangs onto it.

Hamilton comes and Hamilton goes. This is a ripper from Jadeja. It lands on middle and then turns away sharply. There is also some extra bounce. Hamilton looks to defend but the ball kisses the glove and lobs to first slip where KL Rahul takes a simple catch. Hamilton who showed good resistance in the first innings, does not stay out for long this time. India are now three wickets away.

  • 53.3 Driven through the covers by the batsman.
  • Jahmar Hamilton is the new man in.
  • 53.2 OUT! RUN OUT! Lazy, lazy from Brooks and it has cost him his wicket. He played a defensive push off this full delivery towards cover-point and took off for a single but was sent back by Holder. Kohli from cover got to his left, picked it up and threw it off balance at the keeper's end. Voila! A direct hit. The Indian players were not confident as they thought the batsmen was well in but the replays showed otherwise. Brooks was shown to be lazy in getting back and had he stretched a bit, he would have easily got in. Poor stuff. A run out is never the best way to get out (there never is any good way) but when you do not put a price tag on your wicket, you tend to lose respect.

  • 49.6 Flatter and on middle, this is kept out. 164/5
  • 49.5 On middle, this is defended.
  • 49.4 Confusion but safe in the end. Brooks pushes this towards mid off and sets off for the single. But Holder is not interested at all. He takes a late start and Pant yells at Shami to throw the ball to him. But the speedster does not listen and goes at the bowler's end instead. Misses the stumps but even if he had hit, Brooks was well in. Should have gone at Pant's end.
  • 49.3 That must have hurt Rahul! This is flatter and on off, Brooks goes back and looks to cut but it goes off the outside edge and on the bounce to the fielder at second slip who makes a sharp stop. It might have stung.
  • 49.2 Short! This is on off and it turns away. The batter defends inside the line with soft hands. It goes off the outside edge and falls well short of second slip.

  • 48.4 OUT! CAUGHT! A wicket falls at last. It has taken India 20 overs, probably for the first time in this entire series that they have been made to wait for a wicket. And that is because, this man has just got his first wicket of this innings. Coming to the ball, it is a good length delivery around off, Blackwood pokes at it but gets a thick outside edge back to the keeper. There are some animated scenes around, as both Bumrah and Kohli gesture towards someone in the crowd to keep quiet. End of the 61-run stand.
