End of 104th over: First hour of the morning session is over and India looking strong at the moment with Hanum Vihari (56*) and Ravindra Jadeja (15*) in the middle. Just a leg by from Shannon Gabriel’s over before drinks break.
End of 101st over: 2 runs from Rahkeem Cornwall’s first over on Day 2. Shannon Gabriel will continue from the other end.
100 overs are up and India have 290 runson the board in the first innings for the loss of six wickets. Hanuma Vihari (55*) and Ravindra Jadeja (12*) are out in the middle and are now looking comfortable against the West Indies attack.
98.5 overs: FOUR!Another excellent delivery from Jason Holder but Ravindra Jadeja somehow manages to collect a boundary from it. Angled in delivery from Holder from round the wicket and Jadeja initially tries to leave the ball but is too late. The ball finds the back of his bat and goes over the wicket keeper and first slip.
OVERS 96.6: FIFTY!Vihari fights his way to bring up his third Test fifty.
FIFTY! A well made half-century for @Hanumavihari. This is his 3rd in Tests 😎😎 Live – https://t.co/2kjBlPi4Wa… https://t.co/VP3VqbBo2y

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the second day’s play of the second and final Test between India and West Indies at the Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica.
Kohli fifty helps India into strong position on Day 1
West Indies captain Jason Holder eventually won the battle with Indian counterpart Virat Kohli but the tourists were still well-placed at 264 for five at stumps on the opening day of the second and final Test of the series on Friday.
Pursuing a victory which would lift him ahead of Mahendra Singh Dhoni as his country’s most successful Test captain ever with 28 wins, apart from sweeping the two-match series of course, Kohli led a workmanlike effort from India’s top order with a carefully crafted innings of 76.
His dismissal by Holder in the day’s final session, caught at the wicket after four hours at the crease during which he faced 163 deliveries and struck ten fours, appeared to give the West Indies an opening to limit their opponents’ progress in Jamaica.
However, Hanuma Vihari (42 not out) and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant (27 not out) stayed together to the close to leave the home side with considerable work still to do in India’s first innings as they seek a series-levelling victory following a humiliating 318-run defeat in the first Test in Antigua a week earlier.
Vihari and Pant resume on the second morning with their sixth-wicket partnership already worth 62 runs. Holder’s vital dismissal of Kohli gave the seam-bowling all-rounder his third wicket of the innings.
