NORTH SOUND – West Indies lacked penetration in the final session and Ajinkya Rahane and captain Virat Kohli capitalised to stroke half-centuries, as India strengthened their hold on the opening Test after dominating the exchanges yesterday on the third day at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
Rahane, the first innings topscorer, finished unbeaten on 53 while Kohli carved out a polished 51, efforts which propelled the visitors to 185 for three at the close – an overall lead of 260 runs.
The pair have added 104 for the fourth wicket, a stand that pulled India out of trouble at 81 for three before tea and kept West Indies wicket-less in the last session.
Opener K.L. Rahul struck 38 and Cheteshwar Pujara got 25 but both fell prior to tea, as part-time off-spinner Roston Chase (2-69) struck twice to keep West Indies in the contest initially. (CMC)
