India vs West Indies Highlights, 2nd Test Day 2: Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane Put India In Command vs Windies On Day 2
Highlights India vs West Indies: Ajinkya Rahane played a cautious knock for Team India against Windies in the second Test.
Middle-order batsmen Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant scored half-centuries as India reached 308 for four to trail by 3 runs at stumps on Day 2 of the second Test at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Saturday. Rahane (75 not out) and Pant (85 not out) were at the crease when umpires called it a day. The second session belonged to the Windies as India posted 173 runs at the loss of four wickets at Tea. Prithvi Shaw (70), who carried his impressive run from the first match to score his maiden Test half-century was the first wicket to fall for the home side in the second session after his well-built innings was brought to an end by Jomel Warrican. Cheteshwar Pujara (10), on the other hand failed to click with the bat. Meanwhile, skipper Virat Kohli (45) looked in solid touch before he was caught plumb by Jason Holder. Kohli was also involved in a 60-run fourth wicket stand with Rahane. For the Windies, Jason Holder was the pick of the bowlers, scalping two wickets for 30 runs. In the morning session, Shaw (52 batting) forged a 61-run opening wicket stand with KL Rahul (4) as India posted 80/1. Shaw's quick knock was laced with 11 boundaries and one hit over the fence. However, Rahul once again looked out of touch, playing poor shots and not timing the ball which eventually led to gifting away his wicket to Windies skipper Holder. (SCOREBOARD)
In the beginning of Day 2, Umesh Yadav (6 for 88) achieved his career-best bowling figures as Team India dismissed the Windies to 311 runs. Resuming the day on 295 for seven, Umesh got rid of Devendra Bishoo (2) in the very first over of the day. However, Roston (106), who tried to add to his momentum from the first day notched up his fourth Test ton before he was deceived by the swing movement created by Umesh on the flat track. Later, incoming batsman Shannon Gabriel (0), fell in the very next delivery to hand Umesh a hat-trick opportunity in the second innings. (Play fantasy league and win cash daily)

08:30 IST: Hello and welcome to the live commentary from the Day 2 of the second Test between India and Windies.
It seemed good enough till tea but the lack of a fifth bowler did have its effect in the final session as the two senior spinners Ravichandran Ashwin (1/49 in 24.2 overs) and Ravindra Jadeja (0/69 in 20 overs) could not dismiss Chase in the final session. However, it was India, who had started the post-lunch session on a dominant note with signs that another batting debacle from the Caribbeans looking imminent. Shimron Hetmeyer (12) offered no stroke to a googly and was adjudged plumb in-front. Sunil Ambris (18) played a loose shot as the Caribbeans were left stuttering at 113 for five. Chase and Shane Dowrich (30) then added 69 runs for the sixth wicket before Umesh got the ball to reverse trapping the keeper leg-before. While the umpire initially gave not out, skipper Virat Kohli had a successful DRS review.
Earlier, Ashwin and Yadav struck early in the session as West Indies lost their top-order in the first session in which they scored 86 runs. At the stroke of lunch, Shai Hope (36) was dismissed by Yadav as India gained the upper-hand. Opener Powell, who scored 83 in the second innings at Rajkot in the first Test, struck four boundaries. He successfully reviewed a leg-before call off Ashwin's delivery as TV replays showed a big inside edge.
