- Quick bowler Mohammed Shami claimed the wickets of both Windies openers.
- Shai Hope’s stumps were rattled by off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, before Shimron Hetmyer was run out in an absurd fashion.
- Left-arm spinner, Jadeja had Ambris gotten at first slip and left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav thumped over Shane Dowrich’s stumps to leave the hosts engaging to maintain a strategic distance from an innings defeat in the principal match of the 2-Test away series.
