As it happened: India vs West Indies, 1st Test, Day 3

Day 2 Round-up

India lost five wickets in the morning session on Thursday, including that of Sachin Tendulkar for just 10, and were 83 for 5 at one stage, but a century on Test debut by Rohit Sharma and his game-changing 198-run partnership with R Ashwin helped India end day two of the first Test against West Indies at 354 for 6, giving the hosts almost a decisive lead of 120.

Shane Shillingford started the day spinning the game West Indies' way with his four-wicket spell (4 for 130), but then the tide started turning in India's favour. First, MS Dhoni and Rohit added 73 to steady the ship and then Ashwin helped Rohit row it to a match-winning situation. At stumps, Rohit looked impregnable at 127* and Ashwin was just eight runs away from his second Test century.
