Previously Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane struck well-compiled half-centuries to set an improbable 468 run target for the West Indies and took india closer to a series win on Day Three of the second and final Test at the Sabina Park. Further on Sunday, first innings centurion Vihari (53*) and in-form Rahane (64*) stitched together a 111 run partnership for the fifth wicket to take india out of shambles and declare at 168/4, allowing the bowlers to have a short go of 13 over’s at the West Indies batters before the end of the day’s play.



Moreover going by the way the Windies batters have performed so far in the series, it could be rest assured that the Men in Blue will finish the game on the fourth day itself. Previously india decided not to enforce the follow-on despite having a hefty first-innings lead of 299 runs as they bundled out West Indies for mere 117.
