The first day of the second Test between India and West Indies saw a see-saw battle, though the visitors ended the day with the advantage at Jamaica. Reaching 260 for 5 after fine fifties from Virat Kohli and Mayank Agarwal, the Men in Blue got back on track after the loss of early wickets. 

Opting to bowl first, Windies got off to a flying start as the skipper Jason Holder dismissed KL Rahul for only 13. Cheteshwar Pujara too followed soon, becoming debutant Rahkeem Cornwall's first Test victim. At lunch, India were 72 for 2, and needed a batter to play a good hand.

Mayank Agarwal got together with Kohli and laid the foundation with a good fifty. It was his third fifty in only four games, and he helped put on 69 runs for the third wicket along with Kohli. The skipper took 16 balls to get his first run, and he did not have it easy against Cornwall, but Kohli held his end up to negate the danger.

He, however, soon found his groove and got a fifty as well, adding 49 runs with Ajinkya Rahane after Agarwal had been sent back by Holder. Rahane was out in the final session, and Kohli too was sent back just as India crossed the 200-run mark, for 76.

However, Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari then took over the responsibility and ensured no further wicket fell in the day, with the duo batting on 42 and 27 respectively. 

For the hosts, Holder was the pick of the bowlers, with 3 wickets.
