Even Lara couldn't win test series in India: Jason Holder

The spectre of the follow-on loomed large when West Indies resumed day three on a precarious 94 for six.

Mumbai: The omission of Murali Vijay and Karun Nair from the Indian Test squad against West Indies has raised a debate. "We believe he can change many games for us and have match-winning contributions with bat and ball". Living on borrowed time, Rahul failed yet again against the West Indies, departing for a duck to become the only Indian batsman to not get a substantial score in the match. Deciding to bowl Kuldeep Yadav in the second test despite Ashwin running riot is a positive sign in Kohli in the captain. Braithwaite (10) was first to go off Ashwin to open the deadlock for India in the second innings before Kuldeep made a mockery of West Indies top and middle-order to bundle them out for 196 runs in 50.5 overs in the final session of the day.

Destructive opening batsman Chris Gayle has not been included for the limited overs series against India after he opted out for playing Afghanistan premier league along with off-spinner Sunil Narine who was another exclusion as the selection committed announced the 15-member squad. Overnight batsmen Roston Chase and Keemo Paul, who made 47, collaborated for 73 runs in their lone significant partnership in the first innings.

With a deficit of 555 runs to erase and just four wickets in hand, it would take nothing less than a miracle for the visitors to at least come close to the total.

Windies captain Kraigg Brathwaite, standing in for the injured Jason Holder, was removed by Ashwin for 10 before lunch, but fellow opener Kieran Powell provided some resistance by hitting 83 from 93 balls, including eight fours and four sixes.

Google adds that it "cannot confirm" which users were affected, but over 500,000 of them could have been. As many as 438 outside apps may have connected with the flawed software.

Shimron Hetmyer's (11) ill-judged heave at Kuldeep resulted in a catch at short third man and without a run added three balls later in the same over, Sunil Ambris was completely up-ended by one that bounced for Rishabh Pant to complete a smart stumping. He added a further 23 runs for the unbeaten last wicket with Shami (2 not out). Prithvi Shaw, an 18-year-old debutant opener, had scored 134 on Day 1.

It was also India's best in terms of innings victory.

Shaw was named man of the match for his first test hundred.

Not only Kohli, the team management and the selectors are working in tandem to rest more cricketers.
