23:00 hrs IST

Should India have enforced follow-on?

India already have a lead of 300+ with two more days plus to go. Why would skipper Virat Kohli not enforce the follow-on? Perhaps, Kohli is looking to get some runs on the board with the bat. If it rains, and the match went to a draw, the decision will come into question.

22:40 hrs IST

A word on Windies batting

West Indies coach Floyd Reifer said that the batting by his team was “disappointing” as they were at 87/7 on day two of the second Test against India. “Our batting was disappointing again as we did not leave a lot of balls early in the innings. When the ball is moving, you have to play the ball as late as possible. We have to work on our batting,” Reifer said.


19:30 hrs IST

Can West Indies avoid follow-on?

West Indies will enter the day with one goal in mind- somehow, they would hope to avoid the follow-on. It is highly likely skipper Virat Kohli would ask the Windies to follow-on, if the visitors are able to get the three wickets early on.
