India vs West Indies (IND vs WI) 1st Test, Day 2 Highlights: West Indies, chasing India’s first innings score of 297 on Day 2 of the 1st Test in Antigua, have ended the day at 189/8 in 59 overs, still trailing India by 108 runs. Ishant Sharma was the wrecker-in-chief for the visitors, as he romped to his 9th five-wicket haul in Test cricket. West Indies looked like they would end the day with their batsmen in with a chance to overhaul India’s first innings total, but Ishant took three quick wickets in the last half hour of play to break the home team’s backbone. Jason Holder (10*) and Miguel Cummins (0*) will resume batting on the morning of Day 3.
Earlier, adding 94 runs to India’s overnight score, Ravindra Jadeja guided the lower order to put 297 on the board, a respectable first innings score. Jadeja scored 58 runs from 112 deliveries, his 11th Test half-century. Earlier in the first session, Rishabh Pant could add only four runs to his overnight score. Kemar Roach got an edge of his bat in the first over he bowled in the morning. Pant got out for 24 from 47 deliveries. After the wicket of the wicketkeeper-batsman, Ishant Sharma shared a crucial 60-run partnership with Jadeja to frustrate the West Indies bowlers. He scored 19 runs from 62 deliveries. Mohammed Shami disappointed with the bat as he got out for a golden duck to Roston Chase.
