India vs West Indies test match 3 highlights

Current status of the match is Lunch. Yesterday, West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first. After loosing the first 2 test matches, now its time for the West Indies to avoid the whitewash. Keeping this on mind, West Indies gave a perfect start for the day. The Indians failed to take early wickets at the start. West Indies first wicket fell after its total reached 137 runs. Once the break up of the partnership happened, Indians managed to remove other opener as well in short duration. At the end of the first day, West Indies managed to put up a total of 291 runs and lost only 2 wickets. Indians failed in the first day and they were hoping to make some early dismissals on the second day.

The hope did not become into reality as they managed to remove only one wicket after bowling 13.5 overs. West Indies 3rd wicket partnership was 164 runs. Darren Bravo scored his century and is still batting. As of now, West Indies have played 121 overs and scored 378 runs having a run rate of 3.12 runs per over (WI - 378/3, 121 over). Darren Bravo and Kieran Powell are playing and have scored 108 runs and 38 runs respectively. The partnership between them is 64 runs. Ravichandran Ashwin has took 2 wickets and Ishant Sharma took a wicket.

If, West Indies managed to play till the end of the day then the match would end up in a draw or India will loose the match.
