India, who were looking good to take a substantial lead in the first innings, were suddenly pegged back with three wickets as the new ball did the trick for the Windies
Hyderabad: West Indies continued to impress in the second Test of the series against India, as Jason Holder and Co ensured that the hosts could post no more than a 56-run lead at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Sunday.
Earlier on Day 3, India continued from their overnight score of 308/4, but soon lost Ajinkya Rahane for 80. New man and centurion in the last match, Ravindra Jadeja, lasted just two deliveries, and left without bothering the scorers. Both batsmen fell to the pace of Windies captain Holder. Shannon Gabriel soon accounted for Rishabh Pant, who got out in the 'nervous nineties' for the second consecutive match.
India, who were looking good to take a substantial lead in the first innings, were suddenly pegged back with those three wickets as the new ball did the trick for the Windies.
Holder bowled Kuldeep Yadav for six for his fifth five-wicket haul in an innings of his Test career. Gabriel ended up with three wickets.
Ravichandran Ashwin offered some resistance late down the order with a fine 35, but there was not much contribution from the tail apart from that. Ashwin was the last man to be dismissed, as India's innings folded up for 367 when lunch was taken.
