HIGHLIGHTS

  • 03:09 (IST)

    STUMPS: Last over of the day. And Vihari flicks one for four off Roach. He has been very impressive in this innings. And he ends the day with a similar four. Excellent day for India as they finish on 264/5.

  • 02:40 (IST)

    FOUR, FOUR: Gabriel comes back into the attack and he is greeted with a cracking boundary through the covers by Vihari. This is excellent batting by the youngster. It's two in the over as the batsman plays a similar shot. Bad bowling by Gabriel. India are now 245/5.

  • 02:14 (IST)

    FOUR! Length ball outside off, room for Pant to crunch a cut past point to earn a boundary. His first of the innings. He will have to continue to bat like this and aim to take India to 400. It's 216/5. 

  • 01:53 (IST)

    OUT: Kohli's vigil at the crease comes to an end. He departs for 76 as he edges one from Holder, and the ball goes straight into the hands of the keeper. This is excellent bowling by Holder. India are now 202/5. 

  • 01:06 (IST)

    Roach gets Rahane! He's been West Indies' best bowler. Follows up a couple of short balls with a full one outside off. Rahane pushes at it and nicks behind. Out for 24, India 164 for 4.

  • 00:41 (IST)

    That's the end of the session. India 157 for 3, with Kohli on 52 and Rahane on 20. Just one wicket in that session - that of Agarwal for 55. India have scored 85 runs from 29 overs in the second session.

  • 00:25 (IST)

    And Kohli does Kohli things. 22nd Test fifty for the Indian skipper. Gets there pushing Gabriel for a single to the off side. He has had to work hard for his runs today. Has taken 112 balls for the landmark.

  • 23:28 (IST)

    Agarwal finally edges one to the fielder! He has been lucky today on so many occasions but not now. Holder's short ball rises big, Agarwal pokes, edges to Cornwall at first slip. Out for 55, India 115/3.

  • 23:21 (IST)

    Agarwal has been given out caught behind off Roach, but he's reviewed it successfully. No edge there. Roach is troubling Agarwal but is not able to get his wicket... yet!

  • 23:14 (IST)

    And that's a half-century for Agarwal with a bit of luck. First an inside edge to the fine leg boundary, then an outside edge to the third man boundary. Roach is into good rhythm but Agarwal is into his 50. 

  • 23:12 (IST)

    Kemar Roach into the attack in place of Gabriel. India have reached 100. Mayank Agarwal five runs away from a half-century.

03:09 (IST)

STUMPS: Last over of the day. And Vihari flicks one for four off Roach. He has been very impressive in this innings. And he ends the day with a similar four. Excellent day for India as they finish on 264/5.

03:00 (IST)

Gabriel has been rather disappointing on the day. While Holder bowled good channels, he got no support from Gabriel. All the Indian batsmen managed to score freely against him. India are 252/5. 

02:51 (IST)

Both Pant and Vihari are in the middle of a good partnership and a one that could prove game-changing. Windies, who looked in control after Kohli's wicket have looked ineffective ever since. India are 249/5. 

02:40 (IST)

FOUR, FOUR: Gabriel comes back into the attack and he is greeted with a cracking boundary through the covers by Vihari. This is excellent batting by the youngster. It's two in the over as the batsman plays a similar shot. Bad bowling by Gabriel. India are now 245/5.

02:29 (IST)

India are suddenly dealing in boundaries after the departure of Kohli. Not taking the new ball and carrying on with Cornwall could hurt them big. India have not moved on to 236/5. 

02:22 (IST)

The new ball is due now and Windies will most likely take it. They need their best bowlers bowling in these last few overs of the day. But for some reason Cornwall continues. India are now 223/5. 

02:14 (IST)

FOUR! Length ball outside off, room for Pant to crunch a cut past point to earn a boundary. His first of the innings. He will have to continue to bat like this and aim to take India to 400. It's 216/5. 

02:05 (IST)

India will have to try and not lose a wicket till the end of the day. They have batted well in patches but need to be more consistent here. It would be interesting to see how Rishabh Pant approaches his innings. India are 203/5. 

01:53 (IST)

OUT: Kohli's vigil at the crease comes to an end. He departs for 76 as he edges one from Holder, and the ball goes straight into the hands of the keeper. This is excellent bowling by Holder. India are now 202/5. 

01:48 (IST)

Holder is testing Kohli in different ways now. First with a barrage of short ones from around the stumps, and then beats his bat with a more conventional ball from over the wickets. Kohli has moved to 75 though.

01:43 (IST)

Vihari is settling in nicely, using his feet to negate Cornwall's loop. He slams one over mid off to the boundary to get going. The partnership is into the 30s and looking good for more.

01:38 (IST)

Holder goes around the stumps to bang a few short ones to Kohli. A slip, two gullies, and a leg gully in position.

01:18 (IST)

Kohli rubs salts on West Indies' wounds with a couple of boundaries off Cornwall in the next over. Two wonderful straight drives there.

01:17 (IST)

Roach nearly gets Kohli lbw. Nips in, beats his edge and strikes him. The umpire says no, and West Indies don't have reviews left. Anyway, it was umpire's call on impact and crashing into the stumps.

01:13 (IST)

A review for lbw against Vihari off the bowling of Roach. But West Indies have got this wrong. The on field decision stays a the ball is missing leg stump. West Indies have no reviews left now.

01:06 (IST)

Roach gets Rahane! He's been West Indies' best bowler. Follows up a couple of short balls with a full one outside off. Rahane pushes at it and nicks behind. Out for 24, India 164 for 4.

01:03 (IST)

Kemar Roach to get going the third session. Three slips in place, and Kohli starts with a nice backfoot punch for three.

00:41 (IST)

That's the end of the session. India 157 for 3, with Kohli on 52 and Rahane on 20. Just one wicket in that session - that of Agarwal for 55. India have scored 85 runs from 29 overs in the second session.

00:39 (IST)

Almost time for tea. Just one over to go. Cornwall to bowl that over, with Kohli on strike.

00:25 (IST)

And Kohli does Kohli things. 22nd Test fifty for the Indian skipper. Gets there pushing Gabriel for a single to the off side. He has had to work hard for his runs today. Has taken 112 balls for the landmark.

00:15 (IST)

Gabriel is into the attack. He has been a bit expensive today. A wicket now would compensate for all the runs he has leaked.

00:05 (IST)

Roston Chase into the attack in place of Cornwall. They need to break this stand - the two most experienced Indian batsmen.

23:49 (IST)

Holder is looking to go short at Rahane, who is on 2 off 13 balls. Good battle this. Crucial phase in the innings too.

23:28 (IST)

Agarwal finally edges one to the fielder! He has been lucky today on so many occasions but not now. Holder's short ball rises big, Agarwal pokes, edges to Cornwall at first slip. Out for 55, India 115/3.

23:21 (IST)

Agarwal has been given out caught behind off Roach, but he's reviewed it successfully. No edge there. Roach is troubling Agarwal but is not able to get his wicket... yet!

23:14 (IST)

And that's a half-century for Agarwal with a bit of luck. First an inside edge to the fine leg boundary, then an outside edge to the third man boundary. Roach is into good rhythm but Agarwal is into his 50. 

23:12 (IST)

Kemar Roach into the attack in place of Gabriel. India have reached 100. Mayank Agarwal five runs away from a half-century.

23:08 (IST)

Partnership between Kohli and Agarwal has now crossed 50. They've got to kick on. Agarwal will benefit from Kohli's experience here. Time to make it count.

22:59 (IST)

A bit of trouble for Gabriel? He has pulled up from his run up twice in an over. Not sure he's 100% fit. He has also conceded a boundary to Kohli - the Indian captain's first of the innings.

22:53 (IST)

Gabriel is bowling from the other end. He is going for the short-ball strategy. Conceded a boundary through byes last over in that pursuit, but remember, he got Kohli out in the first innings at Antigua with a short ball.

India vs West Indies, 2nd Test at Kingston, Day 1 Highlights: As it Happened

Follow all the live cricket action and latest updates as India take on West Indies in the second Test at Kingston: STUMPS: Last over of the day. And Vihari flicks one for four off Roach. He has been very impressive in this innings. And he ends the day with a similar four. Excellent day for India as they finish on 264/5.

India vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 1 on August 30th (Friday) will be broadcast on the Sony Ten Network and live streaming will be available on Sony Liv. The match will be played at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica and will begin at 2000 HRS IST. You can also follow all the action on our live blog (IND vs WI).

Preview: Team India came up with a near-perfect performance to steamroll over West Indies in the first Test in Antigua inside four days with a 318-run triumph — their first in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship.

Virat Kohli will look the end the Caribbean tour with a flawless record with a win in the second Test at Sabina Park in Jamaica beginning Friday (August 30), having already annexed the ODI and T20 series.

The Indian Test team though are far from being settled. The two major areas of concerns are the opening position and the wicketkeeper’s slot.

KL Rahul looked settled in both innings but failed to carry on to a fifty while his partner Mayank Agarwal fell rather cheaply in both innings. The team management will continue to keep their faith in the Karnataka opening duo for the sake of continuity in the longer format.

The form of Ajinkya Rahane, who scored 81 and 103 in the two innings in Antigua, as well as Hanuma Vihari made up for the failure of the openers. Skipper Kohli also looked in fine touch in his second innings half-century.

The big worry for the team will be the batting form of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. The Delhi youngster has been given a long rope by the both the captain and head coach Ravi Shastri but has failed to show consistency in any format of the game.

Pant scored a half-century in the final T20 game which earned him the No. 4 spot in a couple of ODIs ahead of Shreyas Iyer. But scores of 24 and 7 in the first Test will add to pressure on the 21-year-old to find his form at earliest, although he still averages 45.43 after 10 Tests.

With his replacement Wriddhiman Saha waiting for his chance to return to the playing XI after regaining his fitness, Pant will need to perform both with the bat as well as with the gloves behind the stumps.

Jasprit Bumrah (match haul of 6 wickets) and Ishant Sharma (8 wickets) made up for the failure of some of the Indian batsmen. Bumrah especially was devastating in the second innings, moving the ball both ways to bamboozle the West Indies batsmen.

"Any seamer are at their best when they are getting wickets. The five-wicket haul for both (Ishant and Bumrah) of them will give them tremendous confidence. Also Shami looked good whenever he was given the ball and it augurs well for the team," India bowling coach Bharat Arun said.

For the hosts, all aspects of their game were poor apart from their pace bowling attack led by Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel. Skipper Jason Holder has asked for the batsmen to step up and perform.

Apart from all-rounder Roston Chase, all of the West Indies batsmen looked at sea but will be hoping for a much better show at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
