India lost all their top-order batsmen, including in-form skipper Cheteshwar Pujara, to left-arm seamer Delorn Johnson who produced a lethal burst of bowling. The 23-year-old left the visitors still needing 163 for victory on the final day Tuesday.

 

India's hopes now rest on the two batsmen at the crease, Rohit Sharma (8) and Manoj Tiwari (15) with quite a bit of batting to come.

 

West Indies, resuming at six without loss, managed to reach 204 thanks to left-hander Jonathan Carter (74) and Jamaican Donovan Pagon (67) as left-arm spinner Akshay Darekar troubled the batsmen to claim six wickets for 67 in 24 overs.

 

The pair rescued the innings with an 86-run, sixth-wicket stand when West Indies were rocking at 81 for five soon after lunch with only two other batsmen, Kraigg Braithwaite (21) and Kyle Corbin, getting into double figures.

 

While Carter faced 97 balls and counted six fours, Pagon cracked four fours and four sixes off a mere 72 balls.

 

The hosts had another bumpy start as opener Justin Guillen (6) clipped to be caught at mid-wicket off seamer Shami Ahmed and Corbin followed soon (36 for 2).

 

Darekar then prised out the next three batsmen to leave the innings in turmoil.
