Virat Kohli - winning skipper

We didn’t expect it to finish in three days in the morning to be honest. WI played really well to put us in a tough situation and getting 56 runs was a bonus after the situation we got ourselves into. We would have liked a much bigger lead, but again with the ball we were clinical and we needed to step up. At home where we understand the conditions very well, we know how to put the opposition under pressure and how to create that pressure. We thought the game could go onto the fifth day if the teams kept playing the way they did. We were really good today and deserved to win. If you look at the three guys who’ve come in they’ve grabbed their opportunities really well - Vihari in England, Rishabh has been doing the job wonderfully for us in the middle and Prithvi getting the MoS in his first series was outstanding. But I would like to single out Umesh. Shardul broke down in the first spell and Umesh deserves what he’s achieved in this game. I am pleased to see how he’s stepped up for us in the absence of Shami and after Shardul got injured. He keeps giving more than 100 percent everytime in the field. We all are happy for him, he’s worked really hard and has waited for his chance to step up for us. He is the standout performer for me in this game as far as I am concerned. We have a problem of plenty now, Umesh here, the three bowlers who played in England and it is a headache we have. But I am pleased to see these guys. We applied ourselves in India with the bat much better and we’d like to take that ahead as well. The bowlers didn’t get very favourable conditions to bowl in the last game, the batters got runs and the wicket was very flat. Jinks batted beautifully here, Rishabh batted well with him and it is something we want to see a lot more of when the team is in trouble. I want to thank the crowd as well, they were outstanding and they supported us really well.

Prithvi Shaw - man of the series

It was a happy moment for me and finishing the game for India means a lot for me. It is my first series, winning 2-0 and winning the Man of the Series makes it all the more special. Everyone is like a family; there is no senior or junior. It is a great journey and I am looking forward to a lot of it. I don’t know what is happening next, I just want to enjoy this moment.

17:44 hrs IST

Umesh - man of the match

First of all I would like to tank my teammates for their support. I knew that I was the only fast bowler playing and felt that I had a good chance. I just kept going for wickets and kept trying my best. We are enjoying each other’s company; it is very healthy competition and keep helping each other, playing for each other and for the team.

17:43 hrs IST

Jason Holder speaks

A little disappointed with the way we batted in the second innings. After the fightback yesterday we tried to push forward today. But India played commendably and outplayed us. In hindsight a lot of seamers got wicket, Umesh got ten wickets, I got a fifer and maybe an extra seamer would have helped. We need to give ourselves a better chance with the bat - bat deep after getting set in. Personally I am in a good head space; I am playing good cricket and love playing through aches and pains. I love playing Test cricket.

17:32 hrs IST

Pant and Rahane have their say

Pant - It has been a good experience for me playing Test cricket. The team is very helpful, everyone is helping me to grow in terms of batting and keeping. I think about that only a little (on missing out of his ton), I need to convert these into hundreds in the future. My goal is to keep playing for a long time for the country.

Rahane - It was good fun (on the partnership with Pant), I was trying to control him yesterday, but it was hard. We knew one good partnership would put them (West Indies) down. It was good that he played within himself. I wanted to bat long, this innings helped me a lot. I wanted to create some good habits, just wanted to spend some time. Throughout the series, we played well, everyone batted well. Credit to Umesh, he bowled really well, 6 wickets in the first innings, four in the second, he bowled wonderfully well.

17:30 hrs IST

Shastri on series

Lot of positives for us. When we are playing at home it’s easy to get complacent and carried away. When you lose one fast bowler, you have another one who stands up and takes 10 wickets. He (Umesh) sat on the bench for four Tests in England. But he grabbed the opportunity presented to him, so really happy for Umesh. It’s been done only four times (10-wicket haul by Indian pacers at home). Kapil did it, remember Javagal did it once. Umesh has given us a selection headache and I like this headache. He (Shaw) is born to play cricket. He’s been playing since the age of 8 in the maidans of Mumbai, you can see all that hardwork showing. He’s a specatator’s delight. There’s a bit of Sachin there, a bit of Viru in him and when he walks - there’s a bit of Lara as well. I think Rahul will be fine. He just needs to relax, he’s a world class player. When he gets in, it’s difficult to stop him. Pant is another such youngster. He’s such a good batsman and is good with the gloves as well. We have to go on according to the present form for team selection.

Game...set...match

Day 3 has always been a moving day and boy this match has galloped along to an end. Umesh breathed fire with the ball, picked up 10 wickets and then the openers got the job done, chased down 72 without any fuss.

They walk away with the series in the bag

16:57 hrs IST

Bishoo has been good

He has been tight this match, Prithvi wants to go after him, but is not managing to break free. He has been reprieved already once

16:45 hrs IST

Match is meandering along

The batsmen are content in waiting, the bowlers are trying, but nothing is happening, fielders throwing the ball all over the place, Holder is doing what he can and then looking towards the heavens! Test cricket....

16:34 hrs IST

Shaw bats like Tendulkar, ducks like Tendulkar

Remember the Adelaide Test, remember McGrath, remember Tendulkar, he ducked, was hit on the body, Daryl Harper gave him out. All so similar here, it is umpire’s call hence Shaw is safe

16:21 hrs IST

Woah, intent from India

Down the track comes Rahul, close to the pitch of the ball and the lofts it clean over long off, what pure timing, all the way for six

16:12 hrs IST

The chase is about to begin

India need 72 to clinch the series, will the match end today? How will the Windies respond? Another innings for KL Rahul to find some form

16:05 hrs IST

Knocked him over

Umesh brought back into the attack, length ball on off, Gabriel looks to slog it away, inside edge taken and the stumps are disturbed. 10 wickets for the pacer

15:58 hrs IST

Ashwin picks the 9th

Lovely ball, flighted, drift, loop, does not spin, Warrican comes forward to defend, the ball keeps straight and uproots the stumps. Stunning ball

15:47 hrs IST

Jadeja has been relentless

Tight, accurate, and relentless. Jadeja has not allowed any breathing space today and now he has the wickets to show for all this efforts

15:35 hrs IST

Ambris departs

Wow, what was that! An absolute brainfade, he tried to paddle the length ball away, and missed it. Ball hits the pads and he is a sitting duck. A resolute innings, but an unfortunate end

15:30 hrs IST

Jadeja strikes

Flighted outside, draws Holder forward and then gets him to nick it. Pant hangs on to the catch and the captain has to depart. Big blow for the visitors, India surge ahead

15:21 hrs IST

Kohli has to look at different options

Both batsmen are looking fairly comfortable. Umesh is getting the ball to move around, but the batsmen have looked assured.

15:10 hrs IST

Holder looking solid

Excellent batting against the turning ball, judging the length quickly and then decisive footwork. Holder looking very assured, Ambris giving him good support

14:59 hrs IST

Review wasted

Kuldeep floats one wide, Ambris looks to drive, misses the ball and Kohli has asked for a review. But, the ball has passed the bat and ultraedge is unmoved. So that’s that!

14:48 hrs IST

Back after Tea

The task is cut out for Jason Holder and Sunil Ambris. They have to bat, forget about the scoreboard and bat some more. It is not going to be easy, the ball is reverse swinging and the pitch has assistance for the spinners. But, Test cricket is never meant to be easy!

14:26 hrs IST

Tea on Day 3

The tea break is here and the Windies lower-order will want to come out strongly and delay the inevitable as much as they can here after losing six wickets in the post-lunch session. Umesh has been the star of the show as he picked three wickets. Windies have a lead of just 20 runs with four wickets in the bag. The ball is reversing and this is India’s game from here. An interesting Day 3 of the 2nd Test between India and West Indies unfolding here in Hyderabad. India take the session.

14:20 hrs IST

Umesh gets another one

Umesh on a hat-trick here as he gets Dowrich off the first ball of the over. This one is almost a replay of the Chase dismissal, only this time the inside-edge was bigger. Brilliant bowling from the Indians here and looks like this game could well be over by tonight. The reverse is in the game and Jason Holder will have to face the hat-trick ball.

14:14 hrs IST

Umesh gets Chase with a beauty

That is an absolute jaffa from the pacer here as Chase’s stump goes for a walk in the park. A 22-ball 6 is all that Chase could produce in the second innings. A brilliant display from the Indian bowlers in the second innings and they would ideally want a couple more wickets here.

14:00 hrs IST

Chase and Ambris look to fight

After the top four failed to stand ground, Chase and Ambris definitely want to stand ground and fight it out in the middle. They might not be scoring at a brisk pace, but they are looking to stitch a partnership and break the flow of wickets that saw the Indians come right back into the game in the first half of the post-lunch session. India will want a few more wickets before the tea break.

13:50 hrs IST

Cracks coming into play

The ball is starting to jump on and off and that is what will make batting all the more difficult from here on for both teams. India will want to finish the Windies second innings as early as they can and look to chase a comparatively small total as things will not get any easier here in the fourth innings of the match. Windies still trail by 2 runs.

13:40 hrs IST

Indian bowlers keeping it tight

The Windies batsmen have closed in on the first innings deficit, but they have already lost 4 wickets in the process and Kohli is trying his best to ensure that the pressure is right up there on the Windies batsmen as the Indians look to pick as many wickets as they possibly can before the tea break. Still a bit of action left before the break.

13:27 hrs IST

Floodgates opening

Here we go...Another one bites the dust as Windies lose their fourth wicket even as they trail by 11 runs. Shai Hope goes for 28 as soon as Jadeja is introduced into the attack by Kohli. That is a wicket maiden for the spinner as the Indians are clearly on top here. Typical Jadeja dismissal as the ball turns sharply, takes the edge and Rahane does the rest at first slip.

13:21 hrs IST

Kuldeep strikes

Hetmyer looks to break the shackles and has to go for 17 off 29 deliveries as the score reads 45/3. This was pitched right up and once again the batsman did not read the turn and the edge flies straight to Pujara at point. The Indians are celebrating as Windies still trail by 11 runs with three down. This was a very careless shot.

13:10 hrs IST

Indians on the attack

Kohli wants to keep the pressure on the Windies batsmen here and has turned to a full spin attack with Ashwin and Kuldeep bowling at Hope and Hetmyer. Jadeja is waiting in the wings and could be unleashed anytime soon. The Indians will want to pick a couple more wickets before Windies manage to cut off the first innings deficit.

13:00 hrs IST

Kuldeep into action

With the wicket already taking turn, Kohli is happy to introduce his left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav into the attack. The fielders around the bat giving the Windies players a feel of the situation and there is no denying the fact that the Indians are on top here. Windies must bat out of their skin here to stay in the match.

12:50 hrs IST

Indian bowlers on top

Umesh and Ashwin have started really well here and are bowling a testing line here. It will be interesting to see how the Windies batsmen face the challenge. The lead still reads 36 for the Indians. Hope and Hetmyer at the crease and are looking to stay positive as they know that scoring runs is just as important here.

12:39 hrs IST

Ashwin gets Powell

That was a sharp turning delivery, takes the edge of the bat and that lands in the hands of Rahane. A good catch jumping forward and as usual Rahane is one of the best when it comes to taking slip catches off the spin bowlers. Powell must walk back and West Indies have lost their second wicket here and are still 50 runs behind India.

12:25 hrs IST

Umesh strikes

Kraigg Brathwaite has to walk back here as Umesh strikes. This was down the leg side and a good catch from Pant behind the wickets. The Indians are elated as the score reads 0/1 after the second ball of the West Indies innings. Can the Indians ensure a collapse here?

11:46 hrs IST

India dismissed for 367

6/59 in the morning session on the third day as the Windies have clawed right back into the game with their leader Jason Holder picking a fifer. This is just the kind of show the visitors would have wanted to put in on the third morning. Ashwin was the last man dismissed as Gabriel sent his stumps for a walk in the park. The lead stands at 56 as the India innings ends on 367.

11:40 hrs IST

India look to extend lead

The lead has gone past the 50-run mark and with Shardul looking to give Ashwin company in the middle, the Indians will hope that they can extend the lead as much as possible here as they need to bat last on this wicket. Anything near the 100-run mark will be a huge bonus for the Indian bowlers when they come out to bowl in the Windies second innings.

11:30 hrs IST

First session extended

With India 9 down in their first innings, the morning session is set to be extended here. Can the Indians still play out the session? Does not look too difficult as both Ashwin and Shardul can bat. An extension of half an hour here unless a wicket falls here. Shardul also looking to give it his 100 per cent even though he is struggling with the groin injury.

11:20 hrs IST

Ashwin looking to extend the lead

India might have failed to take advantage of a good position on the third morning, but Ashwin is trying his level best to ensure that the bowlers have a decent first innings lead to play with when the Windies batsmen finally come out to bat in their second innings. Both Ashwin and Shardul Thakur can bat.

11:07 hrs IST

Warrican gets Umesh

The spinner has been bowling a good line and Warrican gets his due as Umesh Yadav goes for 2 off 13 balls. Cutting down on the temptation to use the long handle, Umesh finally goes trying to cut the left-arm spinner. The Windies players are celebrating here and they deserve to after putting on a brilliant display in the morning session. The score reads 339/9.

11:00 hrs IST

Team India update

Mohammed Siraj & Hanuma Vihari have been released from the Test squad to play in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Knockouts. Manish Pandey and Shubman Gill have been drafted into the side as substitutes.

10:58 hrs IST

Windies look to close India innings

With the top-order back in the hut, the Indians are looking to bat for as long as possible, but the Windies bowlers will want to finish the innings as early as possible as the Indians already have a 25-run lead and will want Ashwin to stretch it to as far as possible.

10:46 hrs IST

Holder picks his fifth

A fifer for the West Indies skipper here as Holder cleans up Kuldeep. The left-hander has to walk back for 6 as the stump goes for a walk in the park. The Windies players are celebrating here as they have made a strong comeback into the game on the third morning. The score reads 334/8 as Holder is leading from the front.

10:40 hrs IST

Ashwin looking to hold fort

He has 4 hundreds against the West Indies and he can definitely bat. The Windies are looking for wickets and it is important for Ashwin to ensure that he keeps the tail wagging with him for as long as possible. A lead anywhere near the 100-run mark will be worth gold as India will have to bat last on this wicket.

10:30 hrs IST

End of first hour

Windies have done really well here in the first hour and made inroads with the new ball. But the challenge will now be to clean the tail up as the fast bowlers are tired and the visitors need the spinners to bring on their A-game. Can the Windies slower bowlers manage to seize the opportunity presented by the fast bowlers? An interesting hour of play coming up before the lunch break. The score reads 334/7.

10:15 hrs IST

Gabriel bowling beautifully

With the top-order batsmen back in the hut, the Indian tail is finding it hard to tackle the pace and line of Gabriel with the new ball. This is interesting stuff here from the Windies bowlers as we near the end of the first hour’s play on the third morning. Ashwin and Kuldeep will do well to play out this session from here. The score reads 324/7.

10:03 hrs IST

Pant goes for 92

Gabriel gets a wicket here as Pant has to walk back to the pavilion. Misses out on another hundred after getting out for 92 in the Rajkot Test. Pant goes for another 92 as the Windies have now picked up 3 wickets in the first half an hour here. Rahane, Jadeja and Pant back in the hut as the Windies have an opportunity to wrap up the tail with the new ball. The score reads 322/7.

09:56 hrs IST

Pant into the 90s

Looking chilled as always, Pant has moved into the 90s. No sense of tension even though India have lost two quick wickets in the morning. Pant is happy to hit the bad balls and leave alone the good deliveries. This is the type of innings that will give him further confidence. Pant has already shown that he belongs here.

09:46 hrs IST

Holder traps Jadeja

This is clearly against the run of play. Holder has picked two in one over. After getting Rahane, the West Indies captain now strikes to remove last match’s centurion Ravindra Jadeja for a duck. This is just the start that the Windies would have wanted on the third morning. The score reads 314/6. The visitors have started well with the new ball.

09:42 hrs IST

Holder gets Rahane

This is clearly against the run of play. The ball rises from close to a length and takes the edge of Rahane’s bat as the gully fielder grabs that. Jason Holder picks the first wicket of the morning as Rahane goes for 80. The score reads 314/5. The visitors have started well with the new ball.

09:32 hrs IST

Vintage Rahane

Brilliant start for the India vice-captain here as he starts with a quality cover drive that flies to the boundary. This is vintage Rahane on display here and shows the kind of form that he is in. Holder starts proceedings for West Indies with the new ball and the Indians are clearly looking to make the most of the opportunity here on a wicket that has helped the batsmen mostly. The lead has been taken with this boundary.

09:25 hrs IST

King Kohli on song

Indian captain Virat Kohli continues to peel off runs and continues to toss records away. During his knock in the first innings against West Indies in Hyderabad on Saturday, Kohli became the most prolific Asian captain with the bat. Kohli cruised past former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq and now holds the record for scoring the most runs as a captain from Asia. Misbah had scored 4214 runs in 56 matches at an average of 51.39. He had 8 centuries to his name as the skipper of his side. Kohli has taken only 42 matches to break this record and this is a testament to his phenomenal consistency as a run-maker.

09:15 hrs IST

Team India behind KL Rahul

According to batting coach Sanjay Bangar, the team management will back KL Rahul. “We will back players who are capable of winning matches, our impact players,” Bangar said on Saturday. “His contributions have come overseas and his contributions at home also have come in tougher times. The series against Australia which probably was the most hard fought, is a case in point.” Rahul scored 149 against England at The Oval last month. But that knock, and a half-century against Afghanistan in the one-off Test in Bengaluru, are his only respectable scores in the 17 innings he has played this year. “Yes, he (Rahul) has had issues with balls coming into him; he’s working on it really hard. But at times, batsmen tend to think a lot about away going balls and at times forget to concentrate on straighter balls or which generally pitch on stump line. Those are things we are working on,” Bangar said.

Hello and welcome

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the third day of the second Test between India and West Indies from Hyderabad. The 18,555 fans, who turned up on Saturday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, mainly to watch their hero Virat Kohli bat, got to see a different show, one that featured two cocky Indian youngsters. The 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw (70, 53 balls, 11x4, 1x6) and 21-year-old Rishabh Pant (85 batting, 120 balls, 10x4, 2x6) helped India get their act together at different stages of the innings. In reply to West Indies’ first-innings total of 311, India first took flight on the wings of Shaw, then had a few jittery moments getting reduced 102/3, losing skipper Kohli before tea to be reduced to 162/4, and then finally coasting on an unbeaten 146-run stand for the fifth wicket between Ajinkya Rahane (batting on 75, 174 balls, 6x4) and Pant to end Day 2 on 308/4.
