    IND vs WI 2nd Test, Live Updates: Earlier in the day, Prithvi Shaw set the stadium alight with a blitzkrieg 70 from just 53 balls. He looked to get consecutive centuries but one false shot brought about his downfall. This is what he has to say as Sanjay Manjrekar has a chat with him. The young opener says, “The was just trying to play his natural game but couldn’t convert it into a big one. Adds he enjoyed it though and it was a good batting surface. States that from U-16 level he’s been trying to play the ball on its merit, which is his strength. Stresses that he does not want to get confused by thinking too much and intends to continue playing the way he is. Reckons that Gabriel and Holder were bowling at a good pace, so he just tried to use their pace and find the gaps as best as he could. On his dismissal, he informs that he was just trying to hit it to the left of the cover fielder but the ball was a little away from him, so he couldn’t control it.” Wants to learn from that and not repeat the same mistake again. Ends by mentioning that it (his dismissal) was a silly shot, so he won’t be repeating it in his next innings.

    IND vs WI 2nd Test, Latest Score and Updates: Superb stuff from India. They have showed why they are such a great force to reckon with. The main in-form batsmen were dismissed around Tea-time but then we witnessed a stunning fightback. Pant and Rahane started the final session cautiously but as the period progressed, the former started to get into his own. In a partnership of 146, the southpaw has scored 85. 135 runs came in the final session in 34 overs. The wicketkeeper-batsman was in particular, hard on the bowling while Rahane was just content in blocking and milking the bowling.

    IND vs WI 2nd Test, Live Updates: Surprising. Shannon Gabriel comes back. 11-1-69-1 so far. Don’t think the second new ball will be taken because just 3 overs are left today. Meanwhile, we finally get an update on Shane Dowrich – his left knee is just bruised, no bones are broken. So we could see him tomorrow on the field. IND 302/4 vs WI (311)

    IND vs WI 2nd Test, Live Updates: FOUR! Not a bad result for India, but perhaps Pant fans will not like that. A tad short, Rahane goes back and works it through mid-wicket. Square leg and mid-wicket look at each other as to who should go and retrieve and in the end, both go for it. Neither get to it. The stand moves to 135. India 297/4, trail Windies by (311) by 14 runs

Chase (98 not out) and tailender Devendra Bishoo (2 not out) were at the crease when the umpires dislodged the bails on day one. Chase led a valiant fightback for the visitors after they were tottering at 113/5 in the post-lunch session. He was involved in two big partnerships — 69 runs for the sixth wicket with wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich (30) and then 104 for the seventh wicket with skipper Jason Holder (52) — that helped the West Indians end the day on a positive note.

Resuming the final session at 197/6, Chase and Holder stretched their partnership further to 104 runs before the skipper finally fell to pacer Umesh Yadav, caught behind by stumper Rishabh Pant.

Chase, who ended the day two runs shy of his fourth Test century, continued tormenting the Indian bowlers, and together with Bishoo went on to add nine unbeaten runs before play ended.

But things could have gone worse for the tourists as the top order once again failed to put up a fight and meekly succumbed to chinaman Kuldeep Yadav (3/74) and Umesh (3/83).

Electing to bat after winning the toss, the tourists wasted a steady start to slip to 86/3 at lunch, with both the openers — Kraig Brathwaite (14) and Kieran Powell (22), and No.3 Shai Hope (32) back in the hut.

India were handicapped early in the innings with debutant pacer Shardul Thakur injuring his groin in his second over and walking off before off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin completed the over.
