SHANE DOWRICH UPDATE

Ajinkya Rahane has a point to prove
Ajinkya Rahane has a prove to point and this could be the innings which could cement his place in the squad for Australia. He has not been in best of touch and it is the perfect opportunity to get some form under his belt.
The communication breaks down between Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli. Rahane was eager for a second, but the captain was quick to tell him to return. He came way out of his crease though. Lucky break! Direct hit would have been gone.
Virat Kohli's drives
If Prithvi Shaw's strokes were a delight early on, it is time to see Virat Kohli's drives. The skipper plays brilliantly to get his 2nd boundary in the match, and India's trail comes down below the 200-run mark.

Sight to behold: @y_umesh sends stumps flying 👀👀— BCCI (@BCCI) October 13, 2018
Is there a better sight than to see a fast bowler steaming and uprooting the timber? Sit back and watch as Umesh Yadav unleashes fury.

India 80/1 at Lunch on Day 2, India trail by 231 runs.
Excellent session for India, and Umesh Yadav and Prithvi Shaw being the stars for the country.
FIFTY FOR PRITHVI SHAW!
Prithvi Shaw follows up his 134 on debut with a half century in just 39 balls. The dressing room stands up to applaud and he receives a pat on the back from Pujara. What a cricketer, What a Shawman!
Prithvi Shaw has been DROPPED ON 45! Punched by Shaw hard and it went to Shai Hope at slips. But he was not ready and it just flies over him. Shaw gets a lifeline. How costly would that prove?
KL Rahul's Last few innings
KL Rahul's last few innings point towards a massive concern for India ahead of the Australia tour. Should Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan or Mayank Agarwal be tested for the position?
4 & 13
8 & 10
23 & 36
19 & 0
37 & 149
WICKET! KL Rahul's struggles comes to an end as Jason Holder's short delivery sees the end of what was a short-lived stay. He tried to defend it, but he just pushed it towards the stumps. WI 61/1
50 up for India!
Pure class from Prithvi Shaw as he goes after Warrican. First comes forward and hammers it down for a boundary over the covers. Then follows it up with two consecutive classy drives, the second of which was misfielded.
Takes India's total over 50 (61 now), with three consecutive boundaries.
Time for Spin
Jomel Warrican comes out to replace Jason Holder as West Indies look to put a hold on the run flow. India have scored 43 runs in 5 overs, and this is just getting embarrassing for the visitors.
West Indies straying down the line
West Indies have not been disciplined at all in terms of their line and lengths and these are easy pickings for KL Rahul and Prithvi Shaw. The duo have not been made to take too many risks as both Gabriel and Holder continue to falter with their lines.
Four Byes to India as Shane Dowrich goes down on the ground. He looks to be in considerable pain. The physios are out and are taking a look at the wicketkeeper.
Dowrich has been helped by the fielders to get off the field as he is unable to get up. The substitute wicketkeeper Jahmar Hamilton has taken the gloves.
Have the bowlers figured out a trick for KL Rahul?
