Kohli's aggregate of seven runs is the third lowest by an Indian number three batsman while batting in both the innings, in the Caribbean - the first two being Gulabrai Ramchand (0 & 2) at Georgetown in March 1953 and Ravi Shastri (5 & 0) at Kingston in April/May 1989
Kohli is averaging just 19.40 in six innings as number three batsman - his aggregate being 97 runs in six innings without a fifty.
Rohit Sharma has registered three sixes during his unbeaten 41 off 57 balls - a feat recorded by him for the first time in a Test innings outside the subcontinent. On two previous occasions in a Test innings, he posted three sixes - vs West Indies at Mumbai in November 2013 and vs Sri Lanka at Colombo (PSS) in August 2015.
Since registering 50 vs Sri Lanka at Colombo (SSC) in August/September 2015, the above innings is Rohit's highest in six outings in Tests.

Three stands of 50-plus have been recorded for the first four wickets for West Indies - the last instance for them in a Test match vs India in the West Indies being in the 2002 St. John's Test.
