Rahkeem Cornwall delighted to claim Pujara as first Test victim

Ahead of Team India's second Test against West Indies, head coach Ravi Shastri, along with his bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R. Sridhar, recently paid a visit to music legend and reggae star Bob Marley's Museum in Jamaica.

The second session belonged to India as Kohli extended his stand with Agarwal, before putting on a further 49 for the fourth wicket with Rahane.

Opener Mayank Agarwal (41 not out) neared a half-century with India captain Virat Kohli (5 not out) for company at the break.

Both players kept their heads in the bowler-friendly conditions, taking few risks against the risky Holder, whose consistent length and subtle variations kept Agarwal (55) on the ropes.

Hardik Pandya, who made a sensational return to India's T20 global team aiming for the next year's T20 World Cup, earned massive praise from West Indies star all-rounder Kieron Pollard on Saturday.

At the end of the day, rising star Rishabh Pant and talented player Hanuman Vihar came on stumps and stitched 62-run partnership in 17.5 overs for the unfinished sixth wicket. "And you know he doesn't give free deliveries for you to score off of", he stated.

The 32-year-old West Indies cricketer said: "I have seen him from when he started at Mumbai and I am not surprised. He just keeps hitting those lengths", he added.

On 46 for two, India were steadied by Kohli and Agarwal who posted an enterprising 69 for the third wicket, a partnership which carried the visitors to lunch at 74 for two.

"I can say it got a little better to bat on after the first session - the wicket got a lot harder as the sun beat down - the wicket lost some of its moisture".

"Our seamers bowled well and when I was asked to bowl, I have to do the same".

Rahane (24) did not last long after play resumed, edging Roach to wicketkeeper Jahmar Hamilton, another global debutant, leaving it to Kohli and Hanuma Vihari, who ended unbeaten on 42, to forge a fresh partnership.
