  • 23:06 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: FOUR!

    A four from R Ashwin towards the deep mid-wicket region. He stepped out on Jomel Warrican’s flighted delivery and made it a full toss. After that Ashwin comfortably put that ball away by hitting it safely over the mid-on and mid-wicket fielders for a boundary.

  • 22:50 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Good review from Ashwin!

    Ravichandran Ashwin was given LBW out by the umpire but he reviewed and it eventually turned to be a really good decision. A good length ball caught Ashwin in front of the stumps, but ball tracking revealed that it would have missed the leg stump by a bare margin.

    IND 395/7 (114.2) 

  • 22:46 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: WICKET!

    What a poor game from Ishan Kishan! He has been caught behind at the score of 21 on the bowling of Jason Holder.

India are 393/7 vs West Indies.

  • 22:26 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Another FOUR!

    Brilliant batting from R Ashwin. Shannon Gabriel bowled a short ball outside off stump and Ashwin cut it away from the left of backward point for a four. The right-handed veteran is boasting his experience here with classy and smart batting.

    IND 389/6 (110.4)

  • 22:24 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: FOUR!

    A beautiful cover drive from Ravichandran Ashwin on the bowling of Shannon Gabriel. The pacer bowled it fuller and Ashwin hit it to the left of mid-off fielder for a four.

  • 21:36 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Lunch!

    It was a shared session as West Indies claimed two wickets. They got Virat Kohli as run out while Kemar Roach got better of Ravindra Jadeja. However, before that Kohli raced to his 29th Test ton and Jadeja hit his 19th fifty in the format. Contributions from the duo keep India in the driving seat despite getting six down vs Windies.

    IND 373/6 (108)

  • 21:25 (IST)

    IND 366/6 (106.4)

  • 21:15 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: OUT!

    Ravindra Jadeja is caught behind for 61 on the bowling of Kemar Roach. It was initially given not out by umpire Marais Erasmus but West Indies went upstairs. A relook on it with the help of UltraEdge this time revealed that Jadeja got a faint edge there. A real small one but enough for West Indies to celebreate. India are 360/6 vs West Indies

  • 21:09 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Short and punished!

    It was a short ball sliding down the leg stump from Jomel Warrican. Ishan Kishan was quick to transfer his weight on the backfoot and hit the ball away for a four towards the square leg. The short leg fielder got saved by a bare margin as it was hit really hard and would have injured him. 

    IND 358/5 (102.2)

  • 21:04 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: FOUR from Kishan!

    A four from Kishan Kishan which is also his first in Test cricket. He stepped out of his crease and slammed Jomel Warrican’s flighted delivery for a four down the ground. “Catch it” was the call, most likely from the Windies keeper Joshua Da Silva, but it went like a bullt, giving no chance to the bowler to catch it. 

    IND 354/5 (101)

  • 20:56 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: FOUR!

    A short ball well outside off and Ravindra Jadeja threw his bat to it for a four. He got an outside edge but the ball comfortably flew over the slip fielder to run for a boundary. Windies need to bowl tight, especially in this phase when they have a new batter in Ishan Kishan at the other end.

    IND 346/5 (99.4)

  • 20:51 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Kohli is OUT!!!

    Oh, would you believe it? Virat Kohli is run out on his individual score of 121. He got an inside edge towards the square leg. The batter stepped forward and then stopped for a moment before he decided to steal a single. Alzarri Joseph came in running and hit the stumps at the other end, catching Kohli short of his crease. India 341/5 against West Indies.

  • 20:42 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: India in control!

    Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja are solid in the crease. The duo has added 155 runs for the fifth wicket and West Indies deperately need a wicket to keep their morale boosted. The way this game is going, it seems Kohli and Jadeja have to do a mistake only then Windies are going to get the breakthrough.

    IND 337/4 (97)

  • 20:10 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Fifty for Ravindra Jadeja!

    Ravindra Jadeja is no behind! He has taken a double and races to his half-century with it. Another mature knock from the southpaw.

  • 20:04 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Century for Virat Kohli!

    A four on the off side and there is the century number 29 for Virat Kohli in Test cricket. That is his first overseas ton in the format since December 2018. Kohli must be a relieved man now. This has been a really patient knock from the star batter. He took 21 balls on Friday to get off the mark and then kept himself in control on Day 2 to race to his century.

  • 19:52 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: FOUR!

    Easy picking for Virat Kohli! It was bowled onto the pads from Kemar Roach and Kohli flicked it towards the backward square leg for a four. It’s is first boundary on the second day and that takes him to 94.

  • 19:48 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: 300 comes up!

    IND 300/4 (87.2)

  • 19:34 (IST)
