Roston Chase (98 not out) and Jason Holder led a spirited fightback for West Indies after Kuldeep Yadav and Umesh Yadav had threatened to shoot out the visitors cheaply on the first day of the second Test in Hyderabad. By stumps, West Indies had reached 295/7 against India, who lead the two-match series 1-0.

Windies won a good toss and elected to bat. They got off to a decent start but then kept on losing wickets at regular intervals. The post-Lunch session saw plenty of runs flowing as the pair of Roston Chase and Shane Dowrich attacked the Indian bowlers.

The former, in particular, was very positive right from the onset. His century stand with skipper Holder dominated the evening session before Umesh Yadav struck late in the day.

For India, six wickets have fallen to the bowlers with similar surnames. Kuldeep Yadav was inconsistent with his line and length but whenever he got it right, he looked dangerous.

Umesh Yadav, too, was threatening, especially with the old ball which was reversing. Ravichandran Ashwin was the most accurate bowler. The offie kept it tidy and also picked the first wicket of the day.

The unfortunate injury to debutant Shardul Thakur has not cost the hosts much as their three spinners shared the workload quite efficiently.
