AS IT HAPPENED | SCORECARD

John Campbell was on a roll as West Indies were off to a flying start but Shami’s introduction into the attack gave India their first breakthrough as the Indian pacer dismissed Campbell after the West Indian dragged one back onto the stumps.

After conceding some easy runs at the start, Indian pacers pulled back the things to stem the flow of runs.

Ishant then struck for the first time in this match as he held on to a fine return catch on his own bowling to end Kraigg Brathwaite’s innings. The right-hander got out for 14.

Jadeja, who had scored 58 to take India to 297, added to the hometeam’s woes as he dismissed Shamarh Brooks before the tea break. The debutante perished for 11 as Ajinkya Rahane took a catch on the rebound, after the ball ricocheted off Rishabh Pant’s pads.

Bumrah trapped Darren Bravo before the wicket to give India their first breakthrough in the second session before Ishant ran through the West Indies batting line-up.

While Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer were looking to rebuild West Indies’ innings, Ishant dismissed Hope, Hetmyer and Kemar Roach in space of five runs as West Indies were reduced to 179/8 from 174/5.
