KL Rahul was still look­ing to set­tle down on four when In­dia got to 50 in just 7.2 overs with Shaw on 34. Byes were the sec­ond-high­est scorer then at 12.

and was car­ried off the field. The ball went for four byes. There were two more fours in byes as sub­sti­tute keeper Jah­mar Hamil­ton ini­tially strug­gled to get used to the bounce of the pitch.

Dowrich is un­likely to bat in the sec­ond in­nings and so, af­ter Shardul Thakur, both In­dia and West Indies are play­ing with 10 bats­men.

DROPPED CHANCES HURT VIS­I­TORS

Shaw got a respite on 45 when Shai Hope dropped him at slips off left-arm spin­ner Jomel War­ri­can. Pant was on 24 when keeper Hamil­ton failed to latch on to an edge off Gabriel. In­dia were 196/4 then and the en­su­ing four brought up the 200.

Both Rahul and Chetesh­war Pu­jara will be dis­ap­pointed with their show here. Rahul chopped one on to his stumps and Pu­jara got a faint edge to the keeper.

Kohli was set­tling down with Ra­hane when one from Ja­son Holder nipped back and he was given out leg be­fore. He re­viewed but had to go af­ter an ‘um­pire’s call’ on hit­ting the stumps. He scored 45 (78 balls, 5x4).
