At stumps, the West Indies were 76/2 and needed to score 289 more runs on the last day to level the series. In the first innings, the West Indies were bowled out for 255 in response to India.

Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma has set a new world record by becoming the first batter in Test history to score 30 consecutive double-digit scores.
