    The few fans that turned up at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua have had lots to cheer about in the opening Test between West Indies and India – three wickets have fallen already and Virat Kohli is one of them.

    Kemar Roach got the first and second wickets by bowling good, full lengths and impeccable lines with a hard Dukes ball.

    Both Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara nicked off to wicketkeeper Shai Hope to leave India at 7/2 after 5 overs – a perfect start after winning the toss.

    Shannon Gabriel took a different approach – he used express pace and short deliveries to unsettle Kohli.

    Eventually, the India captain fended one to Shamarh Brooks at gully to end his innings after just 12 balls.

    At drinks, India are 32/3 after 11 overs with KL Rahul on 11 and Ajinkya Rahane on 0.
