Ind vs WI: India make solid start

Opener K.L. Rahul made utmost use of the opportunity he had got as he remained unbeaten at (87*) with a solid looking No. 3 Cheteshwar Pujara (20*) giving him company in the first hour of second day’s play here on Sunday.

India were 148/1 in 50 overs. Despite having the upper hand, India opted to be cautious in the 13 overs bowled in the first hour. Infact, Pujara scored his first run at the stroke of the first hour. The Windies pacers led by skipper Jason Holder were steady and were willing to be patient as they kept bowling at the fourth stump corridor.

Earlier on day one, India’s bowlers and batsmen dominated the show as West Indies’ decision to bat badly backfired. West Indies wer dismissed by tea at Sabina Park for 196 in their first innings, and India finished the day on 126/1 - only 70 runs behind.
