Roston Chase was eventually dismissed by Umesh Yadav, to give the fast bowler his second five-wicket haul. The 26-year-old all-rounder was cleaned up through the gate by an inducker after scoring a commanding 106 from 189 balls with eight fours and a six.

Jahmar Hamilton, who is not part of the playing XI, has come out as the substitute wicket keeper for the West Indies.

Although the pitch for the Ind vs WI Hyd Test match wasn’t too difficult for batting, the West Indian batsmen played some unnecessary big shots to get dismissed, starting from opener Kieran Powell who was caught at covers off R Ashwin. Kuldeep Yadav picked up three wickets with his mix of chinaman and googlies.
India had given Test debut to Mumbai medium pacer Shardul Thakur in the ongoing Ind vs WI Hyd Test match. However, the young bowler had a tragic start to his test career when he had to walk off the park during his second over because of a groin strain. Shardul Thakur did not return again in the course of play leaving India with just the one pacer in Umesh Yadav to go along with the three spinners.
