India are firmly in the driver's seat👍 at the end of day 1⃣ of the 2⃣nd Test against WI at Sabina Park, Jamaica, after dismissing the hosts for just 196👏. WI captain Jason Holder made a questionable decision🤔 of opting to bat first on a pitch which had a greenish tinge to it which the Indian pacers promptly exploited⚡. Ishant Sharma struck in succession in his 2nd over, getting Brathwaite fending to short leg😲 and then had Bravo to edge to slip. Shami then snared a wicket after Chandrika edged one to gully, where Rahul took a sharp catch👌. Jermaine Blackwood (62, 62balls) then counterattacked💥 for a while in the company of Marlon Samuels who was blocking everything in his path✋. Ashwin, who got appreciable turn off the track, trapped Blackwood LBW before foxing Samuels with a one that dipped🙌. Rest of the West Indian lineup couldn't cope with Ashwin's guile and variations and toppled over for just 196😏. Ashwin finished with 5/52.
In reply, India got off to a brilliant start👍. Rahul (75) looked imperious💪 while Dhawan (27) played his part before a loose drive saw him gift his wicket. Pujara (18) and Rahul got India to 126/1 at stumps😳.
