The fire in the Kingston, Jamaica is down as India made early inroads in the second test now underway in West Indies. Even though we failed to produce a lethal fast bowler through the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai, the fire power within our ranks was enough to shake the depleted West Indies side. This particular wicket was touted as a green wicket and the news about chin music was going round. To add to that the tearaway fast bowlers from the Caribbean Island were included to reinforce the West Indies to keep Indian Team under pace leash. But the wicket behaved differently and even helped our spinners to get sharp turn for upsetting the opposition. Since the Virat Kohli led side will bat last hence they should play the first innings in a most meticulous way and obtain a sizable lead to upset the applecart and go two up in the series.
