West Indies use substitute wicketkeeper after injury to Shane Dowrich

Indian cricketer Shardul Thakur bowls during a practice session ahead of their second test match against West Indies in Hyderabad

Shardul Thakur managed only 10 balls Test debut, before the whole thing turned into a nightmare as the India speedster was forced to leave the field due to a groin strain on the first day of the second Test against West Indies in Hyderabad on Friday.

Virat Kohli has gotten a little more than he bargained for in a weird incident during India's Test match against the West Indies when a fan tried to plant a kiss on him.

However, the right-left batting combination of Rahane and Pant ensured a wicketless final session with their contrasting batting.

This is the second time that the 26-year-old broke down in back-to-back global matches.

The West Indies were hit by an injury to wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich early in the Indian innings, and replaced him with substitute Jahmar Hamilton behind the stumps. After getting dismissed for 311, thanks to Roston Chase's century, the Windies pacers started off in a bad note as they were wayward with their line and lengths and that allowed Prithvi Shaw to cash in on the errors and score yet another fifty.

Yadav soon got Gabriel on the very next ball to become the first Indian quick to get six wickets on home soil after Javagal Srinath's 6-45 against New Zealand at Mohali in 1999.
