The center and reduce sequence was accounted for by Kuldeep as nobody solely opener Kavem Hodge, who done 51, got going for a hosts.
Curiously, R Ashwin did not play a singular over. But Navdeep Saini, who was not a partial of a strange Test squad, sent down 6 overs. Jasprit Bumrah, behind in movement after a World Cup, sent down 11 wicketless overs that cost him 45, and Ravindra Jadeja bowled 12 overs though a wicket, yet he done his participation felt in a margin as he effected a run out of Jason Mohammed.
