Fall of wickets: 1-139 (Yashasvi Jaiswal, 31.4 ov), 2-153 (Shubman Gill, 35.4 ov), 3-155 (Rohit Sharma, 38.5 ov), 4-182 (Ajinkya Rahane, 50.4 ov), 5-341 (Virat Kohli, 98.2 ov), 6-360 (Ravindra Jadeja, 103.5 ov), 7-393 (Ishan Kishan, 113.5 ov), 8-416 (Jaydev Unadkat, 122.5 ov), 9-426 (Mohammed Siraj, 126.5 ov), 10-438 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 127.6 ov) • DRS
35.4 to Shubman Gill, superb delivery. Given out caught behind, and there seems to be a long discussion between Gill and Sharma before he decides not to review it. On a length, outside off, and as we have observed, he is not leaving anything alone. Gill pushes at it. The ball holds its line to take a faint edge to the keeper. 153/2
103.5 to RA Jadeja, Roach is convinced that he's nicked off Jadeja. He goes 'how's that' almost running up to the crease at the striker's end. Erasmus says no. Brathwaite reviews straight away. The ball was pitched up just outside off to invite the cover drive. Jadeja went for it but not without conviction. It looked like he wanted to pull out of the shot last second but was a bit too late. The replay shows that there is a spike as the ball passes the bat. Jadeja has to go for 61.. 360/6
127.6 to R Ashwin, Ashwin makes ample room, too much in the end, and the leg bail goes for a flight. He made room early and Roach sent in a slower ball on a length, at the stumps. His front leg was almost outside the return crease as he tried finished. The attempted cut through point was beaten and the leg stump was rattled.. 438/10
50.4 to AM Rahane, Chopped on, off stump knocked over! Gabriel leaps in the air and pumps his fist to take West Indies to tea on a successful note. Rahane was back in his crease, his feet were close together as he tried to block the length ball, angling in towards fourth, to mid-off. The ball cut back in and the stump cartwheeled towards fine leg.. 182/4
38.5 to RG Sharma, Off stump rattled! Rohit thwacks his bat into the ground as he walks back. Worrican's beaming smile highlights West Indies' celebration. Tossed up generously again. On a length, pitching around middle. Turned ever so slightly to beat the attempted push off the front foot. Rohit tried to keep the back foot in the crease, it slid to the left, but beating the outside edge was good enough to send the bails on a twirling flight.. 155/3
122.5 to JD Unadkat, Unadkat charges, gets beaten by the flight and da Silva whips off the bails. Referral for stumping sent upstairs. It was a length ball outside off that Unadkat tried to heave across the line. He missed the ball and tried to plonk the bat back in with his left hand. He wound himself up so much that he almost did the splits. He couldn't maintain his balance as his back leg slid along the ground to the left. Regulation stumping for da Silva and Warrican has his second.. 416/8
126.5 to Mohammed Siraj, Big lbw appeal. Turned down. Last review left for West Indies, Brathwaite takes it. It was a full ball, to which Siraj went across and tried to sweep. His back leg was bent but not enough to get close to the ground. No bat involved. Ball tracking shows three reds and Siraj has to walk back. Warrican has three. The ball passed very close to the front pad as it passed by, the third umpire will check if the ball tickled it along the way or hit the back pad first. This is after the initial decision was made. The replays offer confirmation that it did indeed hit the back pad first and that the impact was in line.. 426/9
31.4 to YBK Jaiswal, this was a'comin'. Jaiswal has been playing loosely for a while. And Holder is bowling just for that. Jaiswal has a drive at a wide length ball, well away from the body, and gets a thick edge to the second of the gullies, which is deeper than a normal gully. Holder's hard work has paid off. 139/1
113.5 to Ishan Kishan, Kishan shows some mercy on McKenzie and Holder. Immediately offers catching practice to da Silva. This is just like the practice Kishan will do between the innings as a keeper. This is short of a length, wide, and he opens the face on this to steer this straight into the gloves of the keeper. 393/7

97.2 to J Da Silva, the wobble seam gets him the wicket. A poor shot. A big drive to a ball not nearly full enough. It seams in off a length, and sneaks past the inside edge to peg back his stumps. 208/5
109.5 to JO Holder, lovely bowling. India have brought this Test to life. Goes wide on the crease to make him play at this outswinger, and it moves away against the angle. Even though Holder is pushing at it defensively, the edge carries to the keeper. India's keeper and cordon are standing a little in to make sure these catches go to hand. 233/7
111.4 to AS Joseph, this looks close too. Not given. And India review this time. This is the wobble-seam ball. Pitches just outside off, cuts back in, and there is a spike as it passes bat and front pad. The third umpire watches the replay again, and concludes that the spike has occurred one frame after going past the bat, which means it is the flick from the front pad. And once that is settled, the ball is hitting leg. India get their man. 244/8
115.3 to KAJ Roach, No. 4 for Siraj. Lovely swing bowling. Wide on the crease again, Roach is left pushing at the angle, and the ball swings to take the outside edge. Late swing. Not out of the arm. And pitched right up. 255/9
115.4 to ST Gabriel, Siraj will be on a hat-trick in the second innings pending this review. Wobble-seam ball, Gabriel's bat is in a different post code, hits him in front of middle and leg, and is taking the leg pole out. A richly deserved five-for for Siraj. This is almost like Dale Steyn on a flat pitch: keep at it, and when there is a window, burst through it. 255/10
72.4 to KC Brathwaite, what a beauty. Ashwin has been trying to do this for a while. This is a special special wicket because there has been nothing in this pitch. Lovely late drift, drawing him away to defend, and this time it hits that one small rough patch and spins back in through the gate to hit the middle stump. Lovely bowling. Been working up to this for tens of minutes. 157/3
51.4 to KSA McKenzie, Mukesh Kumar off the mark. Reward for patience and persistence. He has hardly ever left the good length. As he goes slightly shorter and wider here, McKenzie tries a cut and edges it through to Kishan. 117/2
108.4 to A Athanaze, the swing does it. India get what they need in the first over. Given out lbw, and Athanaze has reviewed it. All four balls have swung this morning, and this one has also seamed in a little after pitching. There doesn't seem to be any visual evidence of an edge, but we see a small spike as the ball goes past the bat. The third umpire says he can see a "clear gap" between bat and gap when the spike appears on UltraEdge. So we go to ball tracking. Pitched on leg, impact umpire's call, and an umpire's call on hitting the leg stump. Despite three close calls on that one, Athanaze has to go back. India have an opening now. 229/6
34.2 to T Chanderpaul, Chanderpaul tries to pump him straight, ball balloons to Ashwin who runs to the left and takes it at point. It was full and was in the hitting zone. But he had had just one sighter, and played this from the crease.. 71/1
86.3 to J Blackwood, not for the first time has Jadeja done a right-hand batter in from over the wicket. The assist goes to a sensational catch by Ajinkya Rahane at slip. This is the risk if you don't keep kicking balls from over the wicket away. West Indies have been playing at them, and this time the ball turns and bounces, takes the edge, Kishan gets a deflection, and Rahane changes direction to go to his left, dive, and take this one-handed. 178/4

Fall of wickets: 1-98 (Rohit Sharma, 11.5 ov), 2-102 (Yashasvi Jaiswal, 12.4 ov) • DRS
11.5 to RG Sharma, now taken at fine leg! Rohit runs out of luck, at last. He made room early, and Gabriel followed. He bowled one on a shortish length, getting it down to angle in sharply, with the ball ending outside leg. Rohit went ahead with the pull - it rather looked more like a swipe - but found the man at a straightish fine leg. 98/1
12.4 to YBK Jaiswal, taken by Da Silva after the ball is ballooned up! He ended up halfway where an imaginary short fine leg would have been. Warrican certainly slowed that one down, as Jaiswal was beaten by the lack of pace, as much as by the length. It was on a good length outside off, and Jaiswal tried to slog sweep across the line. But there was good bounce, and Jaiswal got a top edge, with the length being shorter than ideal. 102/2

Fall of wickets: 1-38 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 17.6 ov), 2-44 (Kirk McKenzie, 19.6 ov) • DRS
17.6 to KC Brathwaite, top-edged to short fine leg! Brathwaite is gone trying to sweep after the same shot in the previous ball didn't work out. Looking for the scoring option by seeing the man fairly close in, he saw a tossed-up ball which was dipping on to middle and off. That pitched full and hinted to turn in, as Brathwaite's attempted sweep only got a top edge. Simple catch with a reverse cup for Unadkat. 38/1
19.6 to KSA McKenzie, Kishan sounds very confident, and McKenzie is given leg before wicket. He thinks about a review, but walks back in the end. Immediately after Ashwin changes the angle, he is rewarded with a wicket. He slanted one full while angling it into the left-hander - looked like the front-of-the-hand release - while also bowling quicker and flatter. The ball was full on middle, and went on straightishly to beat his defence. West Indies lose two to Ashwin in a hurry. 44/2
