    Thus ends another tough session in the field for the West Indies, whose batsmen showed no fight, barring opener Kraigg Brathwaite. He deserved a century, but with 3 wickets left and another 409 runs in deficit, captain Jason Holder and Shane Dowrich have a massive challenge in their hands.

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 144/7 in Overs 68 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Shane Dowrich 2 (2), Jason Holder 0 (2): There goes the best West Indian batsman of the day! A snorter from Umesh rises sharply on Kraigg Brathwaite, who fails to move his bat away in time and the ball rests into Saha’s gloves after kissing the bat. It’s all falling apart for the West Indians!

    OUT! Kraigg Brathwaite c Wriddhiman Saha b Umesh Yadav 74 (218)

Roston Chase batted brilliantly so far but a short ball and the temptation to put it away has done him in! Chase pulls a short ball from Umesh Yadav, only to find Virat Kohli at short midwicket! Shane Dowrich is the new man in, and it is safe to say West Indies are staring at follow-on.

    OUT! Roston Chase c Virat Kohli b Umesh Yadav 23 (45)

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 126/5 in Overs 62 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 63 (198), Roston Chase 18 (34): So far, so good for West Indies.

  • 11:10 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 108/5 in Overs 54 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 53 (168), Roston Chase 10 (16): Chase and Brathwaite are trying to bring things back to normal for the West Indies, as they have batted with discipline after the flurry of wickets. Amit Mishra and Shami are bowling in tandem, not much of bowling changes being seen. Brathwaite has completed his half-century, but there is a lot of work left to be done.

  • 10:35 PM IST

    Debutant Roston Chase is in, with Kraigg Brathwaite holding the fort. Has an innings defeat just appeared at the horizon?

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 92/3 in Overs 45 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 47 (142), Marlon Samuels 1 (7): West Indies will have to bat very carefully here. They cannot afford any more wickets, instead, giving themselves time in the middle will be very critical for them. Shami has been India’s best bowler in this innings so far, he has consistently troubled the hosts’ batsmen.

  • 10:08 PM IST

    We are back with live action. West Indies have a big task in their hands, and Marlon Samuels will have to dig in…

  • 9:33 PM IST

    It is time for lunch and India will at least be satisfied walking off the field, having put in the hard work for about 2 hours which resulted in as many wickets. While India would have liked a few more wickets here, the docile track at Antigua has not had any mercy on the bowlers yet. Kraigg Brathwaite stood tall with his unbeaten 141-ball 46, but Darren Bravo proved to be the biggest disappointment of the day. Stay tuned!

  • 9:23 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 90/3 in Overs 42.3 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 46 (135), : WICKET! India’s constant change in bowlers has worked! Darren Bravo, the biggest hope for the West Indies in batting, has disappointed today. He looked fidgety all way till his dismissal, as he poked on a short delivery which he could have just left alone! Marlon Samuels comes in.

    OUT! Darren Bravo c Wriddhiman Saha b Mohammed Shami 11 (33)

  • 9:22 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 85/2 in Overs 41 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 45 (133), Darren Bravo 7 (26): The lunch break is impending and the Indians are pushing pretty hard for wickets. Bravo is looking settled now, but Brathwaite is the one who has started taking some unwanted risks. Ishant Sharma and Ashwin bowling now in tandem.

  • 8:59 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 78/2 in Overs 37 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 39 (117), Darren Bravo 6 (18): India are shuffling their bowlers quite frequently. Amit Mishra and Ravi Ashwin bowled for a while together, and then Umesh Yadav was brought back into the attack. India know they need to remove Brathwaite — who has got his eye in — and Bravo. The left-handed is looking slightly fidgety right now.

  • 8:46 PM IST

    Change in the bowling attack, Ravi Ashwin replaces Umesh Yadav

  • 8:45 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 68/1 in Overs 32 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 35 (106), Devendra Bishoo 12 (45): Almost an hour after the start of the game, India have changed their bowling attack. Umesh Yadav and Amit Mishra have produced a few good deliveries, but the search of the first wicket today is still on. The hosts trail by 498 runs.

  • 8:43 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 68/2 in Overs 32.1 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 35 (106): And there it is! Bishoo stretched so far from the crease that he could not drag his backfoot back in time, after missing to connect a delivery off Amit Mishra. Wriddhiman Saha was quick behind the wickets, and Bishoo’s foot was right on the line. Bishoo has been stumped after playing a fine innings for his team here. Remember, spending time here at this wicket is very crucial and the nightwatchman did his job pretty well.
    OUT! Devendra Bishoo st Wriddhiman Saha b Amit Mishra 12 (46)

  • 8:25 PM IST

    It is time for drinks with West Indies going well at 60 for 1 after 29 overs. They trail by another 506 runs in first innings.

  • 8:13 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 54/1 in Overs 26 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 30 (87), Devendra Bishoo 4 (28): The fact that Indian fast bowlers Shami and Ishant have failed to make a breakthrough would certainly have worried their captain, as they have 19 more wickets to take in this Test. If they are forced to bat again, even after making 566, India have some thinking to do. Kraigg Brathwaite deserves full credit for holding the two ends together, he has been guiding the nightwatchman Bishoo extremely well so far.

  • 7:55 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 43/1 in Overs 21 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 21 (68), Devendra Bishoo 2 (17): Brathwaite holds the key for the West Indies. They have made a nervous start today, and the Indian bowlers have been hitting right lengths so far in their spell. Shami and Ishant are bowling in the channel outside off, but they can target the wickets more in order to make things happen in the middle.

  • 7:37 PM IST

    LIVE CRICKET SCORES & UPDATES, WI 33/1 in Overs 17 | India 566/8 | BATTING – Kraigg Brathwaite 13 (56), Devendra Bishoo 0 (5): Mohammed Shami started the proceedings for the day for India. West Indies have a massive challenge in front of them, the lead is of 533 runs.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket blog and live cricket updates of the third day’s play between India and West Indies, at Sir Vivian Richards’ International Stadium in Antigua. After choosing to bat first, India scored 566 for 8 declared, courtesy Virat Kohli’s maiden double hundred and Ravichandran Ashwin’s patient 113-run innings. In reply, West Indies put up 31 for 1 at the end of day’s play. The Day 3 of this contest will decide which way the pendulum will eventually swing. While the hosts will aim to score as many runs, India will eye on bowling out West Indies twice and start the four-Test series on a winning note. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs West Indies 2016, 1st Test at Antigua

Indian captain was unbeaten on 143 at the start of Day 2’s play, with India at 302 for 4. He knew he was set for a big innings. He took one step at a time, played the ball by its merit and became the first Indian captain to score an overseas double ton.

However, it was Ashwin’s gritty knock that powered India past 500. He took 237 balls and 12 boundaries to score his third Test hundred. Amit Mishra, who replaced all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, scored 53 off just 68 balls, inclusive of six boundaries. IND vs WI Live Streaming: Watch live telecast on Ozee.com

For West Indies, spinners Devendra Bishoo and Kraigg Brathwaite took three wickets each. Shannon Gabriel, on the other hand, was the only pacer who managed to take wickets.

Judging by the way the track reacted on the first two days, it won’t be of any assistance for the pacers henceforth. Nonetheless, given the footmarks created and cracks on one side of the wicket, facing Indian spinners will be a difficult task for the West Indian batsmen.

TEAMS:

India: Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami

West Indies: Karigg Brathwaite, Rajendra Chandrika, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Jermaine Blackwood, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich (wk), Craig Brathwaite (c), Jason Holder, Devendra Bishoo, Shannon Gabriel
