50 run partnership

SIX! Massive hit from Ravindra Jadeja and he takes India across the 600-run mark in style. The intenions have been made clear to the batsmen out there. India are on the move.
FIFTY FOR RAVINDRA JADEJA!
With India 8 wickets down, Ravindra Jadeja has been given the license to go after the bowler. The allrounder scores his half century with a boundary and follows that up with a six.
WICKET! Kuldeep Yadav has been dismissed for 12 as he was trapped by Devendra Bishoo.
R Jadeja moves into 40s
Ravindra Jadeja has moved into 40s and he is carrying on his form from the England Test into West Indies. He has batted well since morning, and India are now consolidating a good partnership lower down the order, something which they did not do in England.
550 up for India!

How long will India bat for?
The pitch appears to be flat and India could maybe think about batting almost till the end of the day, so that they can make the most of the turning pitch in the last three days and end West Indies innings. But, even 600, seems good enough total.
BIG, BIG WICKET! Virat Kohli has been dismissed for 139. A slower delivery from Sherman Lewis and the skipper just looks to loft it past the covers for a boundary. Mistimes it and gets a leading edge. The ball travels to Devendra Bishoo at covers. IND 534/5
Virat Kohli on fire
Skipper Virat Kohli has been unleashed and he makes quick work of Devendra Bishoo to get two boundaries in his over. West Indies have been extremely poor with their bowling and India are making the best of a flat pitch.
FOUR! Virat Kohli has now achieved 1,000 runs in Test cricket in the year 2018. It is for the third successive year that the Indian captain has reached the landmark. He is the leading run-scorer in the format in 2018, with 1,004 runs in 9 matches at an average of 62.75.

CENTURY NO. 24!
VIRAT KOHLI REACHES HIS 24th TEST HUNDRED IN STYLE! This is 4th Test hundred this year! He does in style with a boundary. Wrong line from Bishoo and Kohli just flicked it towards deep backward leg for a four.
450 up for India!
India have crossed the 450-run mark with skipper Virat Kohli hanging on 95*. Rishabh Pant has made quick work of the bowlers post drinks-break and he has quickly reached into his 80s.
Virat Kohli into nervous 90s
Skipper Virat Kohli has moved into 90s. He is batting on 91. He is going on his business slow and steady at the moment and meanwhile, it seems Rishabh Pant has been instructed at drinks to go after the bowlers to add quick runs. Smart thinking.
