KL Rahul and Virat Kohli's impressive partnership, along with a useful cameo by Ravindra Jadeja took India to a hefty total of 364 in their first innings, despite Rahkeem Cornwall shining for WICB with a 5-wicket haul. With a 158-run lead, India head into the final day in the driving seat.
India resumed their innings from the overnight score of 93/3 with KL Rahul and Virat Kohli at the crease. The duo formed an 88-run partnership to put their team in a strong position in the game, with both Rahul and Kohli reaching their half-centuries. However, after the former retired out at 64, WICB spinner Rahkeem Cornwall started to trouble the batsmen.
Cornwall trapped Kohli in front of the wicket, and then went on to claim the wickets of both Ajinkya Rahane and Stuart Binny. However, Wriddhiman Saha and Ravindra Jadeja provided a decent rearguard action with the southpaw playing an aggressive knock of 56, from just 61 deliveries. In the end, India managed an impressive first innings total of 364, on what was a slow wicket, with Cornwall starring for the hosts with a 5-wicket haul.
The day ended on another positive note for the visitors as Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed Leon Johnson for 17. Heading into the final day of the 3-day warm-up game, WICB now
