Change in attack
Ravindra Jadeja returns to the attack and he replaces Kuldeep Yadav. He would be hoping the change of end would do the trick for him.
FOUR! Ashwin strays off the line and gets deservedly punished. Shane Dowrich stretches his arms and guides it for a boundary through covers.
Ashwin into the attack
With Ravindra Jadeja proving to be a tad bit expensive, skipper Kohli calls in R Ashwin to replace him. West Indies have a good partnership building onbetween Chase and Dowrich, and Kohli is keen to get a breakthrough.
Meanwhile, 150 up for Windies

Shardul Thakur - Update
Update: Shardul Thakur has gone for scans. He will not take the field today. An update on his participation for the rest of the Test will be taken after looking at the scans and after being assessed by the team management.— Devendra Pandey (@pdevendra) October 12, 2018
WICKET! Kuldeep Yadav was just teasing West Indies batsman with teasing deliveries and Sunil Ambris finally falls for it. Stepped outside, plays it inside out , gets a leading edge and an easy catch to Ravindra Jadeja. WI 113/5
IN THE AIR... JUST SHORT OF UMESH YADAV!
Slow delivery from Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Ambris slog sweeped it to square. The ball was in the air but it just dropped short of a diving Umesh Yadav. Missed opportunity.
100 up for West Indies!
FOUR! Swing from Umesh Yadav but he has pitched it right where Roston Chase likes the ball to be. He just flicks it towards square for a boundary. Brings up 100 for West Indies.
Kuldeep Yadav gets a direct hit with Roston Chase running towards the wrong end. The umpire called for the TV review but the replays showed he was well inside the crease.
WICKET! Kuldeep Yadav strikes and it is Shimron Hetmyer who has just been deceived by a googly. He decided to let it go, but the ball just spun and wrapped him on the pads. That was plumb. He has to go. WI 92/4
Back after Lunch
Umesh Yadav continues the attack. He still has 3 balls left in the over. Shimron Hetmyer has been joined by Sunil Ambrys in the middle. BACK LIVE!
Meanwhile, here is what happened on the field
A fan invades field once again to click selfies with Virat Kohli.
WICKET! Umesh Yadav strikes and he has wrapped Shai Hope on the pads. It seems to be hitting the leg stump. Hope calls for review.
Another review wasted by West Indies. That was clearly hitting the stu,ps.
And that would be Lunch. West Indies 86/3 at Lunch.
Umesh Yadav traps Shai Hope on the pads just before Lunch. Huge appeal from Umesh. The umpire did not seem interested. India call for a review.
1st check: Fair delivery.
2nd Check: No bat.
3rd Check: Pitched in Line. Impact in Line. Height - Umpire's Call.
Virat Kohli looks miffed.
Jadeja replaces Kuldeep
Jadeja comes into the attack to replace Kuldeep Yadav just before Lunch. He has been punished so far by Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope. Gives away 9 runs in the over.
Bad line from Umesh Yadav
Umesh Yadav has really struggled with his lines in the match so far. He has offered plenty of width on short deliveries and he has been derservedly punished.
Change in attack
Umesh Yadav replaces R Ashwin into the attack. India are looking for a seamer in action just before Lunch, but Shardul's absence is hurting them. Maybe, they should have gone for Shami?
WICKET! Kraigg Brathwaite departs as he fails to pick up the leg-spin from Kuldeep and the ball just went on to hit his back pad. It looks plumb. There was no nick from it.
Brathwaite CALLS FOR A REVIEW!
That is plumb. Waste of a review. WI 52/2
WHAT A CHANCE! Kuldeep once again manages to get a nick of Brathwaite and the ball just falls short of Ajinkya Rahane at slips.
BEAUTY OF A GUN!
BEAUTY! Ashwin has really crammed up Kraigg Brathwaite for room. Pitched it full and leaves no space for Brathwaite to get any touch on it. He almost did and got caught.
Reminder: No Shardul Thakur on field yet
For those, who have missed the first hour, here is a friendly reminder: Shardul Thakur, who received the maiden Test cap, stayed only for 1.4 overs before he had to walk back due to pain in the right groin region. He is still not on the field.
Pitch invasion by fan wanting selfie with Kohli has caused a drinks break here in Hyderabad. This is the second time such incident has occurred in this series. Also happened in first Test in Rajkot.

Brathwaite 12* Hope 6*#WIvIND
First hour is up!
A positive hour for West Indies despite losing Kieran Powell. The openers gave a steady start and Shardul Thakur's injury put India seam attack in jeopardy. Ashwin provided the breakthrough, to pull India back though. Even stevens. WI 40/1
Kraigg Brathwaite gets a leading edge and the ball almost travelled to Virat Kohli at slips. Kuldeep Yadav is troubling the batsmen early on.
Change in attack
Time for Umesh Yadav to take a bit of a breather and here comes Kuldeep Yadav. Now it will be spin from both hands. New man in and Kohli wants his wrist spinner to settle down before attacking. Smart.
