The Day 4 of the second Test between India and West Indies again saw a delayed start due to the rains. Though the West Indies batsmen finally walked into bat in a postponed start.

However, opener Rajendra Chandrika was sent back soon as he got bowled by Ishant Sharma. This paved the way for India to apply press straightaway on the Caribbean batsmen. Just when it seemed Darren Bravo and Kraigg Brathwaite took the Windies out of trouble, Amit Mishra got Kraigg who found KL Rahul at mid wicket.

With Lunch 3 overs away, it seemed as if the Windies would survive. But once Mohammad Shami came, he continued his golden form since comeback by striking twice. First he bowled Marlon Samuels who went for a duck and then on the last ball before lunch, he got the important wicket of Darren Bravo who found Rahul at third slip.

The West Indies ended up at 48/4 in 15.5 overs as the umpires decided to take the lunch break putting India in the driver’s seat. However, rain again played spoilsport as the second and third sessions were called off. This surely puts up a shadow on Day 5 considering forecasts of possible storm.
