WI vs IND | Antigua Day 3 Talking Points - Rahul’s improved game sense and Holder’s defensive tactics

In a slow day of Test cricket, India and Windies resorted to defensive tactics, with no one trying to come out of their comfort zone. That eventually resulted in India ending the day with a minuscule 185/3 in 72 overs, with Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane being the two unbeaten batsmen.

Taking ridicule out of way, Ishant Sharma adds one more fairytale day to his late-blooming career

VVS Laxman’s contribution to Indian cricket is never talked about in the same vein as Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, and Virender Sehwag, but Mohali 2010 told a story. Of course, VVS had quite a number of games to show as his finest but that remained quite a special Test for him.

WI vs IND | Antigua Day 1 Talking Points - The Caribbean pace revolution and Hanuma Vihari’s unfinished business

On the rain-affected first day, India ended with 203/6 with Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja batting in the middle when rain forced the umpires to call for early stumps. While Windies pacers rose to the occasion once again, Hanuma Vihari’s failure raised a question or two about his technique.
