Match Summary: Day 2

India 416

West Indies 87-7

[Hetmyer 34(57), Holder(c) 18(38); Bumrah 6/16, Shami 1/19]

West Indies trail by 329 runs



With India at 264-5 at the end of day one, West Indies still had a chance of picking up a couple of early wickets and changing the course of the match early on day 2. However, the way things panned out, the hosts have been pushed completely out of the game.

After Rishabh Pant was dismissed on the first ball, Ravindra Jadeja showed a lot of grit to hang around with Vihari to see off the freshness of the early morning pitch. While trying to take it to the spinners, Jadeja skied one up and was caught at mid-on.

Ishant Sharma then showed steel to pair with Vihari and notch up a half-century. Vihari went on to score his maiden in Test ton as India were all out for 416.



For West Indies to be in the game, they needed a couple of 100+ partnerships for which the openers would have been expected to play cautiously through the new ball but that was hardly possible against the hostility with which Jasprit Bumrah bowled.

Bumrah, carrying on from his five-wicket haul in the second innings of the first Test, struck six times, including a hat-trick, to break the back of the West Indian batting line up and reduce them to 87-7 at the end of play on day 2.
