India 425 for 6 (Rahul 158, Rahane 74*) lead West Indies 196 by 229 runsLive scorecard and ball-by-ball details A Test match can be a bit like a puppy dog. Cheap Bayern Munich Jerseys . And great players can lead it wherever they want. This West Indian XI does not have great players. They have great triers. Captain Jason Holder and coach Phil Simmons put them men on defence - understandable considering the opposition had a fat lead. Despite their best efforts, the only thing that seemed to threaten Indias chances in Kingston was the weather. A tropical storm has been forecast to hit the region on the fourth day.Ajinkya Rahane found himself part of a pattern, one that has been central to Indias success in the Caribbean. They have played nine-and-a-half sessions in this series. And a set batsman had been out there every time. Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and R Ashwin began the trend in Antigua. It continued with KL Rahul yesterday and Rahane today, as he got to his fifty with a fierce square cut to the third man boundary. It was a shot he used often and his back-foot play overall was excellent.India began to attack towards the latter part of the session. Wriddhiman Saha, who had been agitated early on by the need to score quick runs, who had edged the sixth ball he faced to the slips this morning, had the confidence to stride down the track to Devendra Bishoo and loft him over mid-off. The West Indian legspinner was in the middle of a good spell, floating the ball up and finding appreciable turn. At the other end, his captain was in the middle of an extended spell. Jason Holder bowled nine overs, and beat Rahane five times in one of them. There were back-to-back lbw appeals, followed by a peach of a ball, seaming away from the batsman hastily pushing outside off stump.Some of that though had to be put down to Rahane wilfully taking risks. He was moving across to off stump to try and find gaps on the leg side and was missing straight balls angled into his pads. A batsman at No. 5 cant always play a pretty innings. Least of all when his team was 401 for 5. Rahane had seen off the first hour - and made sure his partner did so too, telling Saha to concentrate on timing and not power. Now his team needed him to cash in. Holder strayed with his length in the 148th over, twice, and was put away, twice.Barring a few instances, West Indies discipline was very impressive. They gave away only 67 runs in 26.4 overs and Holder made sure it included a wicket too, trapping Saha lbw in the last over before lunch for 47.
