When the play stopped on Day 4, West Indies were 48/4 and still needing 256 more runs to make India bat.

After Virat Kohli declared India;s innings at 500/9, West Indies started the Day 4's play from the scratch. But their opening pair lasted only 14 balls with Ishant Sharma removing Rajendra Chandrika early.

Another opener Kraigg Brathwaite became AMit Mishra's first victim of the innings, in the 13th over. It was followed by a Mohammed Amir burst, who got the wickets of Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels.

Despite good shows from their bowlers, India had a frustrating day of cricket with rain playing spoilsport.
