India will look to remove West Indies tail enders early on day two of the second Test at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Saturday. On day one, all-rounder Roston Chase stood in the way of Indian bowlers and scored unbeaten 98 to take the West Indies to a respectable 295 for seven.
Earlier, Umesh Yadav (3/83 in 23 overs) bowled his heart out on a good batting track while left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav (3/74 in 26 overs) was also impressive during the first two sessions. At one time, the Caribbeans were left stuttering at 113 for five. However, after that, Chase, along with skipper Jason Holder (52), did enough to ensure that the West Indies have a good first innings total to fight against a heavyweight Indian batting line-up.

# Score after 43 overs: India 162-4; Pant 0(1)Rahane 18(63)
# OUT! Kohli has gone! Skipper removes skipper. It was nipping back into the right-hander, Kohli was looking it push it across on the tuck but missed the shot, caught on middle and leg. He goes for a review but the replay shows umpires call, which means India retains its review. A good line and length by Holder pays big.

# Score after 20 overs: India 102-3; Kohli 3(4) Rahane 0(0)
# OUT! Another wicket goes: Pujara was the victim. A length delivery, shaping away, gets a faint edge of Pujara's bat and goes straight to the wicket keeper's hands. Two quick wickets for West Indies post lunch.
# Out! Prithvi Shaw departs: A tossed up delivery from Warrican, Shaw goes for an uppish drive but finds the fielder at cover. An entertaining knock comes to an end. Skipper Kohli walks into to bat.
# Score after 15 overs: India 75-1; Pujara 5(27)Prithvi Shaw 51(41)
# Fifty for Shaw! Hundred in the first Test, fifty in this, Prithvi Shaw is having a dream debut. A quickfire fifty to from the young lad to keep Windies at backfoot.
# OUT! Rahul departs! First wicket for Jason Holder. Rahul continued his poor run against the Windies. After duck in the first Test, he is out for just four runs in this. Cheteshwar Pujara, right handed bat, comes to the crease
# Score after 8 overs: India 61-0; Prithvi Shaw 42(30)Rahul 4(21)
# Great start for India: Score after 1 overs: India 15-0; Prithvi Shaw 11(6)Rahul 3(1)
# Rahul and Prithvi Shaw are at the crease. Rahul is on strike. Gabriel will open the attack
# OUT! West Indies all out: Consecutive wickets for Umesh Yadav to end the Caribbeans innings. Career-best figures for Umesh to finish things off. 6/88.
# OUT! Chase departs: Umesh Yadav completes his second five-wicket haul. Another full delivery that came a little inwards. Chase could not read the ball and it went past his defence. End of a fighting innings from the Caribbean.
# Hundred for Chase: Roston Chase brings up his fourth International Test hundred. Second against India. A gutsy innings to save the visitors from humiliation.
# Score after 96 overs: West Indies 296-8; Kuldeep from the other end.
# Out Bowled!! A wonderful start for India. Umesh bowled a fuller length delivery just outside off. Bishoo was too lazy to play this, the ball takes an inside edge and rolls back to remove the off stump. 8 down, 2 more to go.
# Live Action begins: All eyes will be on Roston Chase who is just 2 runs away from another Test century. Umesh Yadav will start the day two attack for India.
# Can West Indies reach 400?: "350-400 in the first innings will be ideal for us at the moment," said West Indies coach Stuart Law. Can the Windies batsmen live up to their coach's expectation?
