  • 4:50 PM IST

    India have began well. KL Rahul and Prithvi Shaw have added 40 in eight overs. Just two overs remain before extra time is taken. India need another 32 but the lights aren’t promising either. However, India would definitely like to knock off the remaining runs today itself and squeeze out another three-day finish.

  • 4:05 PM IST

    ALL OVER: Umesh Yadav returns to clean bowl Shannon Gabriel. He finishes with a match-haul of 10 wickets, as West Indies are bowled out for 127. India need 72 to win the match and take series 2-0.

  • 3:59 PM IST

    BOWLED HIM: That was a quick one from Ashwin, so quick that the offstump was uprooted. Warrican comes forward but the ball beats the outside edge of his bat to thud onto the stumps. West Indies lose their ninth wicket for 126.

  • 3:35 PM IST

    OUT: Another one goes: Jadeja pickes up his fourth as West Indies lose a somewhat set Sunil Ambris. Eight down for 109. Could this be another three day finish?

  • 3:34 PM IST

    OUT: Well, it took a while but West Indies have lost another. The stubborn 38-run stand between Jason Holder and Sunil Ambris comes to an end. Ravindra Jadeja draws Holder forward and the ball takes the edge before entering Pant’s gloves. The umpire originally declared him not out but the confident bunch of fielders behind the stumps wasted no time in taking the rewiew. The snicko showed deviation and the decision was changed. West Indies seven down for 108.

  • 2:30 PM IST

    That’s tea on Day 3! India firmly in the driving seat as West Indies have slumped to 76/6 in their second innings with a slim lead of 20 runs. Umesh Yadav has inflicted the maximum damage with three wickets in the session, taking his match-haul to nine wickets now.

    Next over, Ravindra Jadeja strikes in his first over as Hope edges the ball to Rahane at first slip for his second catch. West Indies are facing similar troubles. Day 3, third innings, the ball turning, the scenario is perfect for Indian bowlers to strike. West Indies still trail by 11.

  • 1:30 PM IST

    OUT: India pick up two wickets in two overs. West Indies are 4 down for 45. Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja send back Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope. The field placement worked for Kohli and India. Kuldeep tosses it up and Hetmyer dances down to hit him over the top, but all he managed is an edge and is caught by Pujara. That is the third time Kuldeep has dismissed Hetmyer this series.

    Next over, Ravindra Jadeja strikes in his first over as Hope edges the ball to Rahane at first slip for his second catch. West Indies are facing similar troubles. Day 3, third innings, the ball turning, the scenario is perfect for Indian bowlers to strike. West Indies still trail by 11.

    OUT! A sharp catch from Ajinkya Rahane at first slip to remove Kieran Powell for a nine-ball duck. Ashwin slips in an off-break, Powell gets an outside edge and Rahane does well to pouch that. The soft signal is out and the third umpire agrees after having a close look at the attempt. Score 6/2, trail by 50 runs

  • 12:37 PM IST

    OUT! Umesh Yadav has struck with his second delivery. Umesh strays on the legside and Kraigg Brathwaite feathers an edge to be out caught behind for a 2-ball duck. Score 0/1, trail by 56 runs

  • 11:48 AM IST

    Bowled’em! Shannon Gabriel would have enjoyed that as he uproots the middle-stump to have Ravichandran Ashwin bowled on 35. India have been bowled out for 367 in their first innings, taking 56-run lead. Lunch has been taken

  • 11:36 AM IST

    Nope, Shannon Gabriel will continue. And with a four, Ashwin takes India’s lead to 50 runs. Gabriel fires it short, Ashwin takes his chance, pulls it, gets a top-edge as the ball flies to the third man boundary.

  • 11:29 AM IST

    Devendra Bishoo into the attack now. This should probable be the last over of the morning session.

  • 11:29 AM IST

    350 up for India in 103 overs. R Ashwin is doing the job for India as he hits a classy four off Shannon Gabriel and then steals a quick single off the final delivery to keep the strike.

  • 11:14 AM IST

    OUT: Umesh Yadav edges Warrican to substitute wicketkeeper Hamilton. India lose their ninth wicket for 339. Shardul Thakur hobbles his way to the crease. Ashwin is still out there but is struggling to get going, having scored 11 off 53.

  • 10:53 AM IST

    OUT: And that’s FIVE wickets for West Indies captain, Jason Holder. Kuldeep Yadav OUT BOWLED. He comes round the wicket and Kuldeep comes forward. But the ball moves just about enough to send the off stump cartwheeling. What a sight for a fast bowler.


    This has been a terrific comeback from the Windies this morning.

  • 10:11 AM IST

    OUT: Another wicket falls for India. West Indies are on fire. It’s Rishabh Pant, who falls for 92 as India lose their seventh wicket for 322. Shannon Gabriel finally gets his man. This one was a length ball and Pant, slapping uppishly, was caught brilliantly by Hetmyer at cover diving to his right. This has been West Indies’ morning.

  • 9:52 AM IST

    OUT: That’s two wickets in the over for Jason Holder. India lose Rahane for 80 and Ravindra Jadeja for a DUCK. West Indies are right back in the game. Holder drops it slightly short and Rahane is caught surprised by the ball that just takes off and finds the edge to be taken by Shain Hope. Two balls later, Holder, coming round the wicket, traps Jadeja right infront of the stumps. India 314 for 6.

  • 9:35 AM IST

    India take lead: And a boundary from Ajinkya Rahane to get things underway for India. They move ahead by 1 runs, 312 for 4.

  • 9:04 AM IST

    Well, despite repeated failures, India’s batting coach Sanjay Bangar is certain of KL Rahul getting back among runs soon.

  • 9:03 AM IST

    With Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin still to come, West Indies can very well be in for the long haul.
