  • 10:54 PM IST

    Live: West Indies 68/4 vs India – Darren Bravo 39 (64), Jermaine Blackwood 1 (10): Bravo is looking steady, but how will Blackwood go about things. Will he too play slowly or will we see some exciting counter-attacking cricket from him?

  • 10:48 PM IST

    Luckily not followed by a long-hop and a huge no-ball!

  • 10:48 PM IST

    Don’t forget to take our insightful poll:

  • 8:53 PM IST

    Live: West Indies 17/2 vs India – Darren Bravo 13 (23), Marlon Samuels 0 (18): West Indies are clearly struggling to score runs at the moment. Samuels is yet to get off the mark despite facing 28 deliveries. Darren Bravo, who has been out of form is being peppered with short deliveries, not surprisingly! Bhuvneshwar, who does not have as much pace as Ishant or Shami, is bowling a beautiful line outside off to him.

  • 8:41 PM IST

    Live: West Indies 12/2 vs India – Darren Bravo 8(14), Marlon Samuels 0(15) |Target 346| – Shami and Bhuvi have bowled brilliantly this morning. Both bowlers have bowled their heart out. Bravo and Samuels will now look to gain some inspiration from Jermaine Blackwood, Roston Chase and Shane Dowrich knocks from the last Test.

  • 8:32 PM IST

    Live: West Indies 10/2 vs India – Darren Bravo 6(11), Marlon Samuels 0(6) |Target 346| – Bhuvi to continue his fourth over. Bhuvi is looking to swing the ball away from Bravo, with three slips in the waiting. This has been a slow outfield with the ball barely reaching the fence. Good over for the West Indies 5 runs from it.

    Mohammed Shami to continue. Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels under pressure to bat as this series has been a downhill slide for them. Just 1-run coming from the sixth over.

Day Four, saw West Indies bundled out for 225 in their fist innings. India were led marvelously by Bhuveshwar Kumar,who in his return match picked up a 5-for, his third in Tests. India in their second innings were 157 for 3 with Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma striking a 85-run stand for the 4th wicket. With only a days play remaining, India will look to put up early runs and make West Indies chase something around 350. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs West Indies, 3rd Test match

Rohit  and  Rahane are the two unbeaten batsmen for India. The duo have added over 85 runs for the fourth wicket, which was crucial considering India lost wickets at regular intervals. West Indies resumed at 107 for 1 on Day Four. After some resistance in the first session, they lost seven wickets in the second session for just 31 runs and were eventually bowled out for 225. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the star bowler for India, finishing with 5 for 33 – all five wickets coming in the second session of the day.

At the end of Day 4, India were 157 for 3, leading by 285 runs. All in all, Virat Kohli and India would be hoping the rain doesn’t ruin Day 5′s play. On Day One, West Indies won the toss and elected to bowl first. India were bowled out for 353 in their first innings after excellent centuries from Ravichandran Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha. India lead the four-match series 1-0.
