Umesh pins Windies on the mat

Fall of Wickets

Jadeja to Holder, out Caught by Pant!! India review: Jaddu started celebrating for a caught-behind but umpire Ian Gould shook his head. Virat wastes no time to challenge the decision. The Indians look pretty confident. Not a no-ball. There was some noise as the ball went past the bat and looks like the Jadeja was spot on. A wave is found on the UltraEdge which meants Holder has to depart. Great review from India. Jadeja reaps reward and Windies lose their seventh wicket. It was a touch slower than the previous ball. Just around off and Holder pressed forward to defend, it just grips and turns away to kiss the faintest of edges. Good grab by Pant, he’s been excellent behind the stumps in this Test. Holder c Pant b Jadeja 19(30) [4s-2 6s-1]

Every time Windies have raised hopes in this Test, they’ve come crashing down to leave many frustrated. After keeping India to 367, picking up 6 for 63 in the first session, they lost the plot completely and slipped to 76 for 6, with a lead of just 20, at Tea on the third day against India in Hyderabad on Sunday (October 14).

India had a handy lead against a low-on-confidence batting line-up, but the temperamental issues of Windies batsmen came to the fore once again with some disappointing strokeplay on display. It all started with Kraigg Brathwaite clipping an innocuous Umesh Yadav delivery on the pads to the ‘keeper. Kieran Powell struggled for nine deliveries before falling to R Ashwin when he edged one to Ajinkya Rahane at first slip. At 6 for 2, Windies were in trouble and needed something special from a shaky middle order.
