R Jadeja to Hamilton, OUT! It is a legal delivery! That was touch and go and in the end, it is ruled in the favor of the bowler. Jadeja's celebration says it all. He is a relieved man. He gets his second. Hamilton comes and Hamilton goes. This is a ripper from Jadeja. It lands on middle and then turns away sharply. There is also some extra bounce. Hamilton looks to defend but the ball kisses the glove and lobs to first slip where Rahane takes a simple catch. Hamilton who showed good resistance in the first innings, does not stay out for long this time. India are now three wickets away.

Has Jadeja got another? They have gone upstairs to check the front foot. It looks really close.

R Jadeja to Brooks, OUT! RUN OUT! Brooks has been out in an unfortunate manner. He played a defensive push off this full delivery towards cover-point and takes off for a single but is sent back by Holder. Kohli from cover-point comes running in throws in a direct hit. The Indian players were not confident as they thought the batsmen was well in but the replays showed otherwise. The replays rolled in and it shows that Brooks was just short of the crease. 50 and out for Brooks.

A direct hit and it has been taken upstairs. Is Brooks short? You never know, direct hits are always close.

J Bumrah to Blackwood, OUT! CAUGHT! A wicket falls at last. It has taken India 20 overs, probably for the first time in this entire series that they have been made to wait for a wicket. And that is because, this man has just got his first wicket of this innings. Coming to the ball, it is a good length delivery around off, Blackwood pokes at it but gets a thick outside edge back to the keeper. There are some animated scenes around, as both Bumrah and Kohli gesture towards someone in the crowd to keep quiet. End of the 61-run stand.

We are back! The Indian players make their way out to the middle and take their respective positions in the field. Jermaine Blackwood and Shamarh Brooks also make their way out to the middle. Ishant Sharma will start the proceedings for the visitors.

... Day 4, Session 2 ...

India, on the other hand, were getting the ball to swing but were quite wayward. Jadeja was probably the pick of the bowlers. Ishant and Shami were good in bits and pieces. They though are way ahead in the game and just need to be patient. Join us for the second session in a while.

Jason Holder will be happy with his batsmen in this session. It did not start in the best of manner for the Windies as Bravo went back retired hurt early on. Brooks and Chase though, then surged a decent stand and took the Windies above the 100-run mark. The hosts then lost Chase and Hetmyer in quick succession and it seemed the floodgates have been opened but Blackwood, the concussion substitute, along with Brooks, who was dismissed of a no ball, have done really well so far. Still there is a long way to go and they need to keep going.

R Jadeja to Blackwood, Almost! Blackwood negotiates the last ball before Lunch but by just. This is shorter and quicker and it comes in with the angle. Blackwood gets his bat down right at the end.

M Shami to Blackwood, BOUNCER! It is bowled above the head of the batsman, Blackwood lets it go to the keeper.

Trying to analyze the no ball rule. Or the REVISED no ball rule. Murali Kartik explains to us very efficiently about the technicalities. Earlier, the landing of the foot was looked into only when the bowler was releasing the ball. However, as per the new rules, the landing of the foot is only checked, irrespective of the ball release. So the cameras show us replays of the Jadeja no ball. He lands his foot with his heel over the line. Fair. NO BALL. But he has not released the ball! And when he does let go of the cherry, the heel is back in the crease. So, what Murali Kartik is trying to tell us is - this rule is plainly for the fast bowlers as it is practically impossible to delay your delivery while bowling fast and landing your foot. But while adjusting to the faster men, the spinners are facing the brunt of the rule. Tough luck.

R Jadeja to S Brooks, OUT! CAUGHT! No wait... it is a NO BALL! Brooks survives to see another day. Just the luck a batter who is short of runs would have wanted. Jadeja is annoyed and rightly so. He bowls an excellent delivery. It lands on middle and it is flatter. Brooks goes back and looks to defend but the ball turns away. Hits the outside edge of Brooks' bat and goes to first slip where the fielder makes no mistake. Brooks starts walking back but is stopped by the umpire as they want to check the front foot. Replays show that it is over.

DRINKS! West Indies have done well here. Although Bravo walked off feeling unwell early on in the session, Brooks and Chase have applied themselves well to see the first hour unscathed. India have bowled decently but have not been able to pick a wicket. They have been a little too wide and are probably trying a little too hard. They just need to be patient and wickets will come.

M Shami to Brooks, FOUR! Good start from Brooks on Day 4. Shami bowls a low full around off, Shamarh plays a lovely drive towards the cover region for a boundary.

We are all set to begin! The Indian players are in a huddle before making their may out to the middle. Shamarh Brooks and Darren Bravo are also out there in the middle. Mohammed Shami will begin the proceedings for the visitors.

Daren Ganga is out there for the pitch report. Says that there is inconsistency in the bounce as short deliveries have kept low on certain occasions. Further says that there are cracks near the Michael Holding end. Ian Bishop joins him and says that the pitch looks better near the Courtney Walsh end. Further goes on to say that the pitch is still good for the faster bowlers. He says that there will be not much swing today as compared to Day 1 and Day 2.

Ishant Sharma, the birthday boy, is down giving an interview. He starts by saying he made his debut at a young age and hence, it seems he has been playing for so long. Further adds he still feels young and is fit to play more. Says Bumrah is an impact bowler and then jokingly say, they ask him to ease off so that they can also pick wickets. Smiles and says they have a lot of fun in the team and despite him being the senior, they still joke around with him. States he recently added the skill of bowling from round the wicket to the left-handers and also getting the ball to straighten from wide of the crease and he is looking to add more variety going ahead.

1 session? 2 sessions? 3 sessions? How many do you think will India take to pick the remaining 8 wickets? If you read the above, you would probably say we are too biased towards the Indian side but to be honest, a Windies win looks improbable. An unreal effort will be needed from their batters if they are to pull this off. However, seeing the way they have batted, it looks like there is only one result on the cards. Stay tuned for the start of the first session.

... Day 4, Session 1 ...

India, on the other hand, are outright favorites as they have only eight wickets to take and have two complete days remaining. However, one believes that the whole of Monday will be enough to take the remaining wickets. Join us on Day 4 for what probably could be the last day of the Test match at 0930 local (1430 GMT). Cheers!

The Windies batsmen though can be be happy with their batting performance in the final session. They managed to lose only the two wickets which is quite different from their previous innings where they had lost wickets in a heap at the start. However, there is still a long way to go and the remaining batters will have to bat out of their skins if they have to give India a run for their money.

It has been India's day throughout. They firstly bowled out the hosts for 117 and then, after a sedate start to their innings and a few early wickets, Rahane and Vihari surged an unbeaten 111-run stand and gave West Indies a huge target of 468. Both got to their respective fifties before Kohli decided to declare. Also they managed to take two Windies wickets in the hour they got to bowl at the Windies batters.

J Bumrah to Bravo, Whoa! Almost a wicket off the last ball! Perfect planning from Bumrah as he rattled Bravo with back-to-back bouncers and then dished a wide fuller ball. The sucker ball one can say. Bravo goes after it but misses to get bat on ball. This was a very risky shot and if you add the fact that this was the last ball of the day, there was no need to go after the ball like that. Anyway, STUMPS ON DAY 3!

I Sharma to Brathwaite, OUT! Caught! Ishant draws first blood. That is a jaffa from Ishant and Brathwaite can't do much with that one. Good length ball on off, closer to the batsman. Brathwaite looks to defend by coming forward but the ball shapes a tad bit away. It kisses the outside edge of the bat and goes to Pant behind the wicket. Good start for India. Rishabh Pant becomes the fastest Indian wicketkeeper to reach 50 dismissals in Test cricket.
