Hello and welcome to the live blog of the second day’s play between India and Windies in the second Test in Hyderabad. Kuldeep picked three wickets and Windies were crumbling at Tea. The resurgence started with Chase and Dowrich scoring 69 for the sixth wicket and then Holder collaborated with Chase to take the innings forward.
India won’t be too unhappy but they would have certainly liked to bat today. Windies were poor early on but the late resistance gives them a chance to challenge India. We saw a few balls keep low and the visitors will hope that troubles India.
Ashwin struck early but failed to find the zip from the track. Jadeja too struggled but Umesh was exceptional with the ball reversing.
Credit to Chase and Holder that kept India at bay. However, a lot will depend on how they play in the first session on Day 2.
