A fan takes a selfie with Indian captain Virat Kohli after invading the pitch on the first day of the second Test between India and the West Indies in Hyderabad.

On the other hand, West Indies, their regular skipper Jason Holder is still not fit and their star bowler Shannon Gabriel is also doubtful for the final encounter. Devendra Bishoo was with him on 2 not out.

With Umesh Yadav (3-83) occasionally straying down the leg side and a couple of edges by Kieran Powell running to the fence, West Indies found little to complain about in the first five overs.

The opener stepped out against the off-spinner, who quickly shortened his length and pitched it wide, prompting an uppish drive straight to Ravindra Jadeja at cover.

India's debuting seamer Shardul Thakur lasted just 10 deliveries before he hobbled off with a groin strain but the hosts bossed the early proceedings, with Kuldeep Yadav (3-74) striking three times.

Chase, who hit a Test-best 137 not out against India in Jamaica in 2016, stopped the rot, firstly with Dowrich and then, when the wicketkeeper-batsman was out lbw on review to Umesh, with Holder.

Giving out further information, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that the 26-year-old has gone for scans and would not return to the field on Friday.
