India has extended their lead over the West Indies to 229 runs at lunch on the third day of their second Royal Stag Test at Sabina Park in Kingston.

Starting the day on a commanding 358 for eight and an overall lead of 126 runs, India are currently 425 for six in reply to the West Indies’ 196.

The only wicket to fall in the morning session was that of overnight batsman and wicketkeeper, Wriddhiman Saha, in what turned out to be the final ball before lunch.

Saha was dismissed leg before wicket by Jason Holder.

The West Indies captain bowled 8.4 unbroken overs for 17 runs this morning before he claimed the wicket.

He now has match figures of one for 66.

Ajinka Rahane, who resumed on an overnight score of 42, is the not-out batsman.

The West Indies are seeking to erase a 1-0 deficit from the first Test in Antigua.

Scores (First Innings):
West Indies - 196
India - 358 for eight
