After losing an early wicket of KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Virat Kohli stabilised the reins of the team and scored 55 and 76 runs respectively.

Watch day two of the second Test between West Indies and India live on Sky Sports The Ashes from 3.25pm on Saturday.

"But, you know, when you are a confident person off the field and you can take that on to the field and perform, I think that shows great mettle in the human itself", the Carribean said.

The world of cricket has a new cult hero after giant West Indies off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall set a new record in his Test debut against India.

An over later, Vihari got a big reprieve when he was dropped by John Campbell off Cornwall at first slip.

The 6-foot-six, 140kg giant was handed his first worldwide Test cap during the second match against the Indians in Kingston.

"Cornwall, who is 6" 6" tall and weighs around 140 kg, was soon asked to bowl and the 26-yea-old did not take much time to bag his first Test wicket.

A lethal spell from Jasprit Bumrah then blew the Windies away as they were shot out for 100 - their lowest Test total against India - as the match ended inside four days. Though, Kohli and Agarwal handled the innings and constructed a 69-run stand for the third wicket.

Working as a commentator in the television coverage of the series, Richards appeared to be affected by the intense heat of the morning while involved in the pre-match coverage.

Medical officials confirmed the situation as a case of heatstroke for the legendary batsmen and it is understood that he is recovering well.

Both players kept their heads in the bowler-friendly conditions, taking few risks against the risky Holder, whose consistent length and subtle variations kept Agarwal (55) on the ropes.
