West Indies batting, for the first time in the series against India, looked in control as they ended day one of the Hyderabad Test at 295/7. It was courtesy Roston Chase's 98 and Jason Holder's 52 that Windies managed to put up an improved show. News18 Group Editor (Sports) Gaurav Kalra feels that Chase and Holder did exceptionally well to lift the team after an initial collapse. As far as India is concerned, debutant Shardul Thakur got injured early in the day and could only bowl 10 balls before he walked off the park. Kalra believes that with Mohammed Siraj in the ranks they could have included him, instead of Thakur.
