    IND vs WI, 2nd Test: Batters keep West Indies in contest against India on day 3

  • July 23, 2023 03:19

    Spin reintroduced, probably due to the fading light. Jadeja against Holder. The new ball is gripping and bouncing and causing some trouble to the batters. That is the last over of Day Three.

    West Indies ends the day at 229/5. A day of patience and grind from the home side. Their batters showed great application, if not intent. Indian bowlers were mighty economical, but weren’t rewarded with much wickets.

  • July 23, 2023 03:07
    WI 228/5 in 107 overs

    Siraj continues to battler on against Holder. Couple of play and a misses from the right-handed batter. Siraj is enjoying the swing he is able to generate with the new ball.

    WI 224/5 in 105 overs

    Mukesh offers width and Athanaze cuts it ferociously. FOUR!!!

    Mukesh adjusts his line, swings one and hits Athanaze on the pads. Strong appeal. But nothing from the umpire. Seems like there was an inside edge.

  • July 23, 2023 02:51
    WI 220/5 in 104 overs

    Second new ball taken. Siraj with it. He gets some movement, but there isn’t much control there. Holder leaves a couple that was swinging away from him.

    WI 211/5 in 100 overs

Jadeja to Blackwood, OUT! Ajinkya Rahane at slips! What a catch he has taken to remove the set batter. Blackwood leaned to reach the length of the ball and nicked it outside and Rahane dived on his left to complete a wonderful catch! Joshua Da Silva, the new man in at number six.

    Jermaine Blackwood c Rahane b Jadeja 20 (92b 2x4 0x6)

    IND vs WI 1st Test Review
  • July 23, 2023 00:12
    Tea Taken!

    Jadeja continues. Not much turn for the left-arm spinner. Concedes two runs in that over. Unadkat with the last over before Tea. Gets a hint of away movement as he beats Athanaze.

    West Indies is kicking and fighting as it ends the second session on 174/3. India would need to rethink its bowling approach on a dull surface. The only moment of joy for them this session was a magical ball from Ashwin which castled Brathwaite.

  • July 23, 2023 00:02
    WI 171/3 in 84 overs

    Unadkat gets a shot at the West Indies duo. Comes over the wicket to Blackwood with some short balls. Earns a maiden over.

    Jadeja continues from the other end and gives away just two runs. Seems like India is using Unadkat to make footmarks for the spinners to gain an advantage.

  • July 22, 2023 23:46
    WI 169/3 in 81 overs

    India burns a review against Blackwood with Jadeja bowling. The visiting side thought there was an edge, but it was just the strap of the pad.

    It is the 80th over, but India doesn’t take the second new ball. Ashwin strikes Athanaze on the front pad, after an attempted sweep. Huge appeal from India. No response from the umpire and India reviews again. But Athanaze is saved by the bounce off that delivery. Umpire’s call!

  • July 22, 2023 23:36
    WI 169/3 in 79 overs

    Blackwood on strike against Ashwin to start with. Takes a signle with a straight-batted shot to the off side. Athanaze on strike now. Ashwin around the wicket. Back-to-back fours for the left-hander. One with a cut shot and one with a sweep.

  • July 22, 2023 23:29
    WI 160/3 in 77 overs

    Jadeja restarts after the drinks break. Maiden over for the left-arm spinner against Blackwood.

    WI 157/3 in 75 overs

    India has finally broken past Brathwaite. This is its chance to make further inroads into the West Indies batting order.

  • July 22, 2023 23:12
    Ashwin scalps Brathwaite!

    Another low full toss from Ashwin and Brathwaite treats it with a sweep shot. FOUR!!

    But Ashwin has his revenge. Pitches one outside the off stump and it sneaks past Brathwaite’s defence to hit the stumps. Huge wicket!

    Captain leading from the front!

    WI 152/2 in 71 overs

    Another quick-fire over from Jadeja. Just a single from that one.

  • July 22, 2023 22:59
    WI 150/2 in 69 overs

    Jadeja reintroduced and he races through his over.

    From the other end, Ashwin offers a rare loosener. Full-toss and Blackwood dispatches it for his first boundary.

  • July 22, 2023 22:52
    WI 145/2 in 67 overs

    Blackwood is biding his time. He has played close to 50 balls and is yet to cross 10 runs.

    West Indies adds just another three runs in the last two overs.

  • July 22, 2023 22:42
    WI 142/2 in 65 overs

    West Indies continues to chip away. Indian bowlers offering not much resistance. This docile pitch it also not helping the matter for the visiting side.

    Ashwin and Siraj continue on without much success.

  • July 22, 2023 22:31
    WI 140/2 in 63 overs

    Siraj into the attack. Stump-to-stump from the pace bowler. Brathwaite defends with a straight bat.

    Rohit persists with Ashwin from the other end. Blackwood taps one on the off side for a single to break a streak of dot balls.

  • July 22, 2023 22:22
    WI 139/2 in 61 overs

    No troubles for the West Indies batters as Mukesh and Ashwin continue to share the overs. Rohit Sharma might need to think out of the box to get a breakthrough.

    Blackwood is patting down Ashwin’s offspin with his front-foot defence.

  • July 22, 2023 22:10
    WI 134/2 in 58 overs

    Ashwin has bowled 17 overs without much luck. He is now up against Blackwood, who defends with conviction against the off spinner.

    Short from Mukesh and Brathwaite takes it on. Hook shot for a six!

    To make it worse, India concedes an overthrow boundary. Careless throw from Jadeja.

  • July 22, 2023 21:57
    WI 122/2 in 56 overs

    Brathwaite gets to his fifty with a couple of runs against Mukesh Kumar.

    This has been an innings of immense graft from the West Indies skipper. India would love to see his back as soon as possible.

  • July 22, 2023 21:56
    Second Session begins

    Brathwaite and Blackwood begin strongly for West Indies. Bright sunshine now. Should be a long, continuous session of cricket.

  • July 22, 2023 21:11
    Lunch Taken

    Early lunch has been taken due to the weather conditions. Only 11.4 overs had been bowled in the session before rain interrupted the match. Kirk McKenzie looked good before he edged his catch to Keeper Kishan off Mukesh as the debutant dismissed the other debutant on 32. West Indies trails by 321 runs.

  • July 22, 2023 19:53
    WI 101/1 in 45 overs

    Siraj continues from his end. He is shaping the ball inside for Brathwaite but due to the slowness in the pitch, the batter is able to adjust with the swing.

    Kohli had to grind it, his application was fantastic: Fielding coach Dilip

    Virat Kohli curbed his flamboyance and displayed tremendous application and temperament on his way to his 29th Test hundred during the second Test against West Indies, said India’s fielding coach T Dilip.

    The 34-year-old Kohli on Friday ended his five-year-long drought for an overseas Test century as he hit a polished 121 in 206 balls in India’s commendable first innings score of 438 to equal Sir Don Bradman’s record of 29 Test tons.

    He had scored his last Test hundred outside India in 2018.

    “One good factor is it is his 500th match and it is a special occasion and he has continued his form from the last match. If you look at his innings, there was no flamboyant drive, he had to grind it, same as what he did in the first game,” Dilip said during the press conference after the second day’s play.

    Day 2 Match Report

    West Indies nudged its way back into the contest as it ended day two at 86 for one after bowling out India for 438 in the first innings of the second Test on Saturday at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad.

    Tagenarine Chanderpaul and captain Kraigg Brathwaite led the charge for the home side with a sedate but in-control 71-run opening partnership.


    After having been blown away by the Indian bowlers in the first Test, where they lost by an innings, the West Indian batters were compact and risk-averse as they put their side at a point of possibility.,

    West Indies lost Chanderpaul late in the day, with Ravindra Jadeja snaring the left-handed batter. But Kirk McKenzie helped his captain see out the rest of the day, with West Indies still trailing India by 352 runs.
