Chase fifty bolsters West Indies against India

Hyderabad, India: Roston Chase's half-century provided the main resistance as the West Indies slipped to 197 for six at tea after choosing to bat first in the second Test against India on Friday.

Chase was on 50 and skipper Jason Holder was batting on 10 at Hyderabad after spinner Kuldeep Yadav claimed three wickets to rattle the tourists' middle order.

Chase, who scored a 53 in the first Test in Rajkot, and Shane Dowrich counter-attacked in a 69-run sixth-wicket stand as skipper Virat Kohli juggled his bowling options.

Paceman Umesh Yadav broke the partnership after trapping Dowrich lbw for 30. Umesh has taken two wickets so far.

India are a bowler short after debutant paceman Shardul Thakur suffered a groin injury in his second over and limped back to the pavilion. He was sent for scans but was expected to return to the field.

The morning session also saw a fan run onto the field and embrace Kohli, who was clearly upset. The fan even tried to plant a kiss on Kohli's cheek and take a selfie.

Security officers overpowered the youngster and hauled him off the field as the crowd roared and clapped.
