India vs West Indies Live Cricket Score 1st Test Day 3 Live Streaming: Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja ravaged a clueless West Indian attack with strokeful hundreds as India headed towards a demolishing win with another near-perfect performance on day two of the first cricket Test here.

Rajkot: West Indies lost Shai Hope for 17 runs, but Kieran Powell continued his good form as he neared a half-century.

The visitors now trail by 555 runs with just four wickets in hand.

Leg-spinner Bishoo removed Ashwin and Kuldeep to finish with four wickets, but had conceded 217 off his 54 overs.

The visitors trailed by 555 runs at the close, with Roston Chase (27 not out) and Keemo Paul (13 not out) in the middle and showing some fight. As the last pair in the wicket, Jadeja and Mohammad Shami picked up the singles. In between those wickets, Shimron Hetmyer was run out for 10 after a mix-up with Ambris.

Jadeja reached the landmark off the fourth ball in the 150th over, bowled by Kraigg Brathwaite.

Showing a penchant for counter-attack, Chase struck four fours - mostly lofted hits down the ground - in a breezy 38-ball knock while Dowrich was more watchful in his 35-ball innings.

The second day saw India dominating all the three sessions, making the West Indies' players struggling throughout.

India rammed home the advantage after 18-year-old opener Prithvi Shaw made 134 on day one to become their youngest batsman to score a century on debut.
