As it happened: India vs West Indies, 1st Test, Day 2

Day 1 round-up:

West Indies were at one stage looking good, reaching 106 for 2 at lunch, but Shami's afternoon burst deflated the visitors who were then bowled out for 234 shortly after tea.

The inexperienced new-ball attack of West Indies didn't trouble the Indian openers Shikhar Dhwan (21*) and Murali Vijay (16*), who safely reached 37 for no loss at stumps.

Earlier, West Indies skipper, Darren Sammy won the toss and elected to bat on a track that looked ideal for batting, but apart from Marlon Samuels (65) none of the West Indies batsmen impressed. Debutant Shami finished with figures of 4 for 71
