Kingston (Jamaica), Aug 1: Opener Lokesh Rahul showed a lot of composure hitting a career-best 158 as India reached a comfortable 358 for 5 on the second day, taking complete control of the second Test against West Indies here on Sundday (July 31).
At stumps, India had consolidated their lead to a sizeable 162 runs despite only 232 runs being scored in the 88 overs bowled in the day as the visitors looked to grind the home team with an aim of outbatting them.
With three days of play left, India has enough time to register another facile win over a below-par Test outfit.
