Virat Kohli dropped an easy catch in the slips offered by Marlon Samuels but it didn’t cost much as he was bowled by Ravichandran Ashwin for 71 from 93 balls. The visitors are on 169 for three after 36 overs.

On the first ball of 29th over, Samuels edged a ball to slips but Kohli wasn’t bending low enough to keep it in control. He finally perished trying to go for a forward defensive stroke and the ball cut through him and clipped the bails.

Earlier, Suresh Raina dismissed well-set Kieran Powell for 70.

The 117-run stand between Samuels and Powell helped West Indies consolidate.
