Chase says West Indies ready to 'fight back' against India

Chase says West Indies ready to 'fight back' against India

Similarly, in 2013 when India won both Test matches well inside three days, the next tour of South Africa didn't pan out well as they lost the series.

Chris Gayle will skip the West Indies' limited-overs series in India and Bangladesh but Darren Bravo and Kieron Pollard return. India have opted for the same XII as the Rajkot Test, meaning 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw has once again beaten Mayank Agarwal to a place in the XI. "Dukes is also right up there", he said after the Rajkot Test.

Ravichandran Ashwin, who returned figures of 4-37 in West Indies' first innings, had sent back stand-in skipper Kraigg Brathwaite for 10 before lunch and then got Bishoo. Perhaps, he was trying to check if he curbs certain strokes, how his game will shape up.

"The kind of quality we have in the team, we understand that we will dominate in these conditions purely because we have done it so many times in the past", India captain Virat Kohli said.

Bowling coach Bharath Arun put up a strong argument for the out-of-form KL Rahul (14 failures in 16 knocks this year).

"We didn't play well in the first game but are looking to fight back in the second", Chase said a day ahead of the game in Hyderabad. "Four bowlers would have struggled in these conditions and we just wanted to give them bit more breaks in between and still have quality bowling coming at the opposition".

The National Hurricane Center predicts Michael will stay a powerful and risky rainmaker as it moves across the U.S. A trash can and debris are blown down a street by Hurricane Michael on October 10, 2018, in Panama City, Florida .

Left-handed opener Kieran Powell hit an attacking 83 while Chase chipped in with 20 but the Indian spinners weaved a web around the tourists, further extending their 24-year wait for a victory on Indian soil.

At present, it is only England that regularly uses the Dukes ball for Test cricket, with West Indies occasionally trying it out.

The achievement also meant Kuldeep, the chinaman bowler, became only the second Indian after Bhuveshwar Kumar and seventh in the world to have achieved a five-wicket haul in each of the three formats in worldwide cricket. They would love to redeem themselves, which looks highly unlikely as of now.

Resuming their first innings on 94 for six at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, West Indies were dismissed for 181, almost three-quarters of an hour before lunch, with Roston Chase converting his overnight 27 into a top score of 53 and tail-ender Keemo Paul hitting an aggressive 47.

Virat Kohli has called for an end to comparisons between Prithvi Shaw and Sachin Tendulkar after the India teenager's record-breaking debut century against West Indies.
