Devendra Bishoo came into the team for Alzarri Joseph for the hosts, with the pitch expected to take some turn.

For India Shikhar Dhawan made way for Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara replaced Ravindra Jadeja as India moved away from fielding five specialist bowlers.

Opener Leon Johnson was the first to go for the West Indies, he was caught at short leg off the first ball of Ishant Sharma's opening spell, with the other Sharma, Rohit, completing the catch diving forward after Ishant forced the right hander back with an aggressive short ball.

Darren Bravo made a run a ball 10 before he was spun out by Ravi Ashwin, the ball turned past his bat and clattered into his off stump ending his brief stay at the crease.

Shortly afterwards the rain came down and would not cease, ending play for the day. The West Indies managed to reach 62 for 2 with Kraigg Brathwaite unbeaten on 32 and Marlon Samuels with him having made just 4.
