Roston Chase scored 98 not out to rescue the West Indies from a top-order collapse as they ended day one of the second Test against India in Hyderabad on 295-7.
After their disastrous first Test loss by an innings and 272 runs, the West Indies won the toss and took first crack at the Hyderabad pitch.
From 52-1, the West Indies found themselves struggling once against the Indian attack, this time with five wickets down and only 113 runs on the board, with Kuldeep Yadav taking three early wickets.
Chase and Shane Dowrich (30 off 63 balls) added 69 for the sixth wicket, after which Chase added 104 for the seventh wicket with West Indies skipper Jason Holder, who scored 52 off 92 balls before being caught behind by Rishabh Pant off Umesh Yadav.
The West Indies ended on a solid 295-7 to banish their first Test blues, with Chase 98 not out off 174 balls (seven fours, one six) and looking for his fourth Test century tomorrow.
Kuldeep Yadav ended the day with figures of 3-74 and Umesh Yadav 3-83.
