As it happened: It was a rather meek display by West Indies as they collapsed twice in two innings to hand India their biggest margin of victory in Tests. They started day 3 in an aggressive manner before Umesh Yadav broke through. R Ashwin was introduced into the attack and he hastened the end with 3 quick wickets. India have enforced the follow-on and West Indies have to now bat and pray, both together. On Day 2, skipper Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja slammed respective centuries as the hosts declared their innings at 649/9. The bowlers then came to the party as they scalped six Windies wickets late in the day. The visitors are 555 runs behind and staring at a huge defeat in the match.
The Indian bowlers breathed fire as they never allowed West Indies any breathing space and prized out six wickets in 29 overs post their declaration. Earlier, three centuries, 2 half-centuries helped India post a dominant 649 runs in their first innings. West Indies toiled hard for very little. Skipper Virat Kohli brought up his 24th Test century. Rishabh Pant looked imperious, but then was dismissed by Bishoo for 92. Earlier, on Day 1, Prithvi Shaw smashed a sensational ton on his Test debut while Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli also slammed fifties as India reached 364/4 at stumps.
