NORTH SOUND – Veteran seamer Kemar Roach inspired an incisive West Indies display to leave India rattled and searching for stability on a rain-hit opening day of the first My Team11 Test in Antigua yesterday.

Opting to bowl first, West Indies grabbed early wickets through Roach to reduce the visitors to 25 for three before Ajinkya Rahane top-scored with 81 and opener KL Rahul chipped in with 44, to help lift their side to 203 for six at the close.

Hanuma Vihari scored 32 and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was unbeaten on 20 when rain forced a premature end to play at 4:38 p.m. with 20 overs still remaining.

The 31-year-old Roach was easily the best bowler on show, ending with three for 34 while new-ball partner Shannon Gabriel picked up two for 49. (CMC)
