Highlights

02:21 (IST)

Day 3 of the first Test done and dusted, and India find themselves in a position to dictate terms, thanks to Kohli and Rahane. The latter has had Lady Luck smiling down upon him today, which has seen the vice-captain earn two reprieves en route to bringing up his second consecutive fifty. Kohli, on the other hand, has cut a calm figure at the crease, working the ones and twos to take the game out of the hosts' grasp. 

We're in for another exciting day's cricket on Sunday. For Jason Holder and company, their only hope on Sunday is in seeing the backs of Kohli and Rahane early, and hoping for a lower-order collapse. Kemar Roach bowled a beautiful spell today, nearly dismissing Rahane twice today, and he will certainly have a key role to play from the West Indian perspective tomorrow. 

Thanks for following our coverage of the third day's play. On behalf of my colleages, I bid you all good night! 

02:17 (IST)

India v West Indies, 1st Test, Day-3:

1st session: 47/2 (22.2 overs)

2nd session: 74/3 (30 overs)

3rd session : 87/0 (35 overs)

End of day's play and half-centuries from Kohli and Rahane have put India in real command. Barring the small passage where Jason Holder spearheaded that ninth-wicket partnership in the morning session, it has been all India's day through and through. The visitors will want to stamp their authority further on this game and bat West Indies out of this Test, probably seeking 400 on the board. Big chance for Rahane to get that elusive hundred. Will he do it on day four?

02:10 (IST)

After 72 overs,India 185/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 51 , Ajinkya Rahane 53)

Last over of the day, bowled by Gabriel. Rahane pulls a back-of-length delivery towards square leg for a single off the third ball. Two byes off the last ball of the day, before the umpire takes the bails off the stumps to signal close of play


The third session has been all about the Indians, with Kohli and Rahane forging a solid partnership while bringing up their respective half-centuries to put the visitors 267 runs ahead with two days still left. 

02:03 (IST)

After 71 overs,India 182/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 51 , Ajinkya Rahane 52)

Change of end for Cummins, who replaces Roach, bowling round the wicket to Kohli. The India skipper hooks a short ball towards cow corner to bring up his half-century, before collecting a single to complete the century stand with Rahane. Six off the over. India well and truly in control at the moment. 

02:02 (IST)

One milestone after another for the Indians, as Kohli collects a single to bring up the 100-partnership with Rahane for the fourth wicket shortly before the close of play. IND 181/3

02:01 (IST)

FOUR! Pulled away to the cow corner fence by Virat Kohli — only his second boundary today — and that brings up his half-century, his 21st in Test cricket! Nice little turnaround for the Indian skipper after the blip in the first innings. Takes 105 balls to reach the milestone. IND 180/3

01:58 (IST)

After 70 overs,India 176/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 46 , Ajinkya Rahane 51)

Gabriel replaces Cummins from the other end, with Holder juggling between his bowlers in the final set of overs for the day. Third maiden of the day for Gabriel.

01:57 (IST)

Luck has turned the tide in favour of Rahane. Maybe last year he wouldn’t have survived a dropped catch or the umpire would have raised his finger for a plumb lbw. Point is he fought hard in the first innings, found confidence and form and now luck is rewarding him. Second half-century of the game for the vice-captain. He will be hoping to make it count this time around.

After 69 overs,India 176/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 46 , Ajinkya Rahane 51)

Cummins returns to the attack, with Rahane collecting a single off the second delivery to bring up half-century in 128 deliveries — his second in this Test. Four runs off the over. Partnership into the 90s now. 

01:48 (IST)

Fifty up for Ajinkya Rahane — his 19th in Test cricket as well as his second of the match. Takes 128 deliveries to get to the milestone. Not the most fluent of knocks, having got a couple of reprieves in this innings, but one that will bolster his confidence nevertheless. IND 171/3

01:45 (IST)

After 67 overs,India 170/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 42 , Ajinkya Rahane 49)

And Roach has been brought back by Holder, and he starts off with a pearler outside off to Rahane. Big appeal for lbw against Rahane off the fourth delivery. Captain Holder discusses it with his teammates, but time runs out before they can arrive at a decision. Turns out to be another opportunity missed for the Windies, with Hawk-Eye showing three reds. Rahane gets another reprieve this innings, luck clearly on his side today. Exciting start to a new spell for Roach.

01:41 (IST)

Ajinkya Rahane scoring 50-plus runs in both the innings of a Test:

v South Africa, Durban, 2013

v England, Southampton, 2014

v South Africa, Delhi, 2015

After 66 overs,India 169/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 42 , Ajinkya Rahane 48)

Two singles collected in Chase' 25th. It's going all too easy for Kohli and Rahane right now. Holder might want to give Roach another crack in the last set of overs of the day to try and keep the two batsmen on their toes.

01:30 (IST)

After 62 overs,India 164/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 39 , Ajinkya Rahane 46)

Tidy over from Chase, conceding just a single to the India skipper. A minimum of 10 overs to go after this. Windies have managed the over-rate fairly well so far today, and should be able to include a few more before stumps. 

01:27 (IST)

After 61 overs,India 163/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 38 , Ajinkya Rahane 46)

Campbell in place of Brathwaite now. Kohli flicks towards midwicket for a single off the third, which is followed by Rahane collecting a double easily, cutting the ball towards deep point. Three off the over.

After 59 overs,India 158/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 36 , Ajinkya Rahane 43)

01:16 (IST)

After 58 overs,India 154/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 34 , Ajinkya Rahane 41)

After 55 overs,India 146/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 30 , Ajinkya Rahane 37)

Kohli collects a single off the first delivery. Rahane drives the ball through extra cover four deliveries later, getting enough time on the shot to send it all the way to the advertising cushion despite the sluggish outfield. The India vice-captain then collects a single to retain the strike. 

01:08 (IST)

00:56 (IST)

After 52 overs,India 134/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 26 , Ajinkya Rahane 29)

After a sedate approach so far in the session, Rahane decides to go on the offensive, collecting back-to-back fours — hitting the ball towards the off side on both occasions — to bring up the fifty partnership with Kohli. Meanwhile, the sun's out at the venue after the drizzle that posed no threat to the proceedings.

Roach was seen walking off the field at the end of the previous over, and we have Gabriel brought back. Starting to drizzle now at the stadium, with the groundstaff ready at the sidelines with the covers, in case the it gets heavier. Gabriel begins his new spell with a maiden.

00:45 (IST)

After 49 overs,India 125/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 26 , Ajinkya Rahane 20)

After 47 overs,India 122/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 25 , Ajinkya Rahane 18)

00:35 (IST)

After 46 overs,India 120/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 23 , Ajinkya Rahane 18)

00:31 (IST)

After 45 overs,India 117/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 21 , Ajinkya Rahane 17)

Roach brought back in place of Holder. Appeal for lbw against Rahane off the second delivery, with the West Indians wasting a review after taking it upstairs. DROPPED! Rahane survives on 17! Gets a leading edge that flies in the direction of Campbell at cover, the fielder spilling it while lunging forward. The senior pacer once again is making an impact with the ball in hand, and is right now Holder's best bet to end this partnership. 

00:26 (IST)

After 44 overs,India 117/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 21 , Ajinkya Rahane 17)

Rahane and Kohli both collect a single each, before the former cuts the ball through cover for a brace off the penultimate delivery. Rahane retains the strike with a single off the last delivery. Five from the over. Current partnership worth 36 so far.

The session was going well for the visitors until the dismissals of Rahul and Pujara in quick succession, which has given the home side hope of pulling things back in their favour. Big task ahead for skipper Kohli and his deputy Rahane in the final session of the day. 

23:37 (IST)

After 36 overs,India 95/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 12 , Ajinkya Rahane 4)

India vs West Indies, LIVE Cricket Score, Test Match, Day 3 at Antigua Latest Updates: The third session has been all about the Indians, with Kohli and Rahane forging a solid partnership while bringing up their respective half-centuries to put the visitors 267 runs ahead with two days still left.

1st Test, Day 2 report: Ishant Sharma frustrated the West Indies with the bat and foiled the home side with the ball to keep India on top after two days of the first test on Friday.

Sharma helped India from 203-6 overnight to a bonus 297 all out, then took 5-42 to limit the West Indies reply to 189-8, trailing by 108 runs.

The quick demise of Rishabh Pant for 24 drew Sharma to the crease, alongside Ravindra Jadeja. Together, they pushed India hopes of a 250 total far beyond expectations.

Their composed stand of 60 lifted India to 267 until Sharma was tricked by a slower ball from Shannon Gabriel and bowled on 19. Sharma was the eighth man out.

But Jadeja continued to corral the tail-enders, striking up a handy 29-run stand for the last wicket with fellow fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.

Jadeja celebrated his 11th test fifty, his second straight and fourth in six innings with India's only six of the innings, a flat swat over midwicket. Jadeja was last man out on 58 from 112 balls, and India had an imposing total.

Gabriel finished with three wickets, and Kemar Roach four.

The West Indies reply was full of waste. Unlike the India top order which was blasted out, all of the main home batsmen made starts only to fail to go on.

John Campbell edged a Mohammed Shami yorker on to his stumps on 23, and fellow opener Kraigg Brathwaite was caught and bowled by Sharma at knee height on 14.

Newcomer Shamarh Brooks took 16 balls to get off the mark, and on his 36th ball he was out for 11 to Jadeja.

Darren Bravo and Roston Chase led West Indies to tea, but Bravo was out to the first ball he faced afterward, trapped by Bumrah on 18, and costing his side a review.

Chase was up to 48 when he was out to a brilliant catch at square leg by KL Rahul, as Sharma took the last four wickets of the day, the last three at a cost of eight runs.

Shai Hope edged behind on 24, and in the same over Shimron Hetmyer was caught and bowled by Sharma at ankle height on 35, and Roach was caught in the slips on 0.

Left in the middle were captain Jason Holder on 10 not out, and Miguel Cummins, who was yet to score.
