    Kohli: Pretty comprehensive again. Played really good cricket over four days. Were in some tricky situations. Contributions all around. Was a game full of grit and determination. According to the surface it was a top class innings. He’s someone who is sure of his game. Dressing room feels calm when he’s batting. He’s willing to improve. Accepts and corrects his mistakes. Plays with a lot of heart. He’s shown why he’s been backed and selected in this team. It’s a by-product of the quality team we have here. If we didn’t have the bowlers we have, these results wouldn’t have been possible. Captaincy is just a C in front of your name. Look forward to keep continuing playing good cricket. From bowling point of view, they were outstanding. Jason and Kemar were the standout bowlers. Their bowling attack in these conditions is as lethal as anyone.

    Hanuma Vihari, Man of the Match: It feels great, I missed out on a hundred in the last match. Happy with the hundred as we were looking to post a good total. We had to be patient on this wicket as there was something in it for the fast bowlers. I was trying to take calculative risk against spinners, that was the game plan and it worked well for me. I have not played a Test at home, looking forward to it. It’s great to play in front of the home crowd back in India.

    Jason Holder: Obviously disappointed, we didn’t play a complete game of cricket in both the games. We need to put up the scores and fight out those tough periods, it’s a tough question on how to fix the batting. It’s an individual thing, we need to take ownership of our performances. The bowlers gave their 100% as we’ve been on the field every single day of this Test series, and the bowlers have delivered. it’s been a heavy workload on the bowlers, and at no point have they dropped their heads. They are a quality side and they played quality cricket, we didn’t bat well enough. That’s the quality of their side. As a batter you need to get in, only then it gets easier. You hard to work hard for your runs.

Day 3 recap

West Indies were left battling to save the Test and the series after India reduced them to 45/2 in the second innings, in pursuit of 468. India made short work of West Indies, needing approximately 75 minutes to dismiss them. With India ahead by 299, in a bid to provide his bowlers rest in the sapping Jamaica heat, Virat Kohlidecided against enforcing the follow on.


West Indies pacers, led by Kemar Roach responded with fire, leaving India at 36/3 before half-centuries from Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane upped the tempo. From 41 runs scored in the first 20 overs, Vihari and Rahane added runs an over six an over post tea and declared 467 ahead. West Indies openers Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell walked out hoping to play out the remaining 16 overs unscathed, but Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami landed two early blow to tilt the balance heavily in favour of India.

Jasprit Bumrah, whose hat-trick had crippled West Indies on Day 2, failed to add more wickets and it was left to Mohammed Shami, Ishant and Ravindra Jadeja to wipe out the Windies tail, which showed more resistance than their top order had displayed. Windies’ first few runs of the morning session were through inside edges, before Shami bounced out Rahkeem Cornwall. In his Test debut, Jahmar Hamilton almost added no run to his overnight score of 2 for 10 overs, and after crawling to 5 off 58, he became Ishant’s only wicket of the innings. Roach struck three boundaries in an entertaining 17 off 31 before falling to Jadeja.
