West Indies face possibility of innings defeat

The West Indies are going into the third day of their second Test against India with the possibility of another innings defeat.

When the match resumes later, they will have to first knock off the 313-run lead the Indians put on the board.

Playing on the second day, India piled up a mammoth 495 all out in reply to the Windies’ 182.

The Caribbean side was punished by centuries from Rohit Sharma and Chetesh-war Pujara, while Sachin Tendulkar slammed 74, in what is likely to be his last innings in international cricket.

At the close, West Indies were tottering on 43 for three, with Kieran Powell, Darren Bravo and night watchman Tino Best all dismissed in quick succession.
