Innings West Indies 311 (Chase 106, Holder 52, Umesh 6-88, Kuldeep 3-85) v India
India fast bowler Umesh Yadav on how he stayed positive despite knowing the pressure was on India’s attack after losing a man to injury
Umesh Yadav ran through the last three wickets in half an hour to undo all the hard work done by Roston Chase, who scored the first century by a West Indies batsman in India since Darren Bravo back in 2011.
Umesh continued with his modus operandi of attacking the stumps to register his best bowling figures, 6 for 88. It was his second five-for in Test cricket, and the first haul of six or more wickets by an India fast bowler at home since 1999. Umesh will also be on a hat-trick in the second innings, having dismissed Chase and Shannon Gabriel with successive deliveries to end the West Indies innings.
Umesh began the day with a played-on dismissal of Devendra Bishoo. Chase, who began he day on 98, then brought up his hundred, but failed to negotiate one that seamed past his inside edge and into the stumps. Umesh then bowled the rare outswinger to get the edge from Gabriel. Four of his six victims were either bowled or lbw. West Indies could add only 16 to their overnight 295 for 7.
