good move by WI playing 4 bowlers & Sammy . I like this attacking move .
 
The 2 umpires in this match are not conservative but kind of trigger happy in giving lbw .

5 bowlers is a luxury. Do not see the 5th bowler getting to many overs.

Sammy is okay in shorter formats , but needs to see himself as a batting all rounder in Test , to justify his place and give right balance to the team. He needs to score runs consistently.
 
Shami is bowling well . i wish bhuvi had bit more speed .
 
Gayle averaging around 42 , which is quite low considering the kind of batsman he is.
 
Oh God Shami looks awful! His run up and action are awful. Quite short too.
 
The pitch will get lower and slower as the game progress , batting last will be tough , no doubt.
 
Gaye has lost stamina, patience and strokes to play the longer version of cricket.
 
A lot will depend on how WI play Ashwin , He is the in form bowler
92 wickets from 16 games !!

India on top here at drinks.

WI need some consolidation. They desperately need a solid Partnership here
 
Samules needs to be careful , this is Test Match. You need to get 350 here at least

I got this:

Windies are a decent team. And the best batsman in this series is yet to bat and I am not talking about SRT
 
This is important phase of the game, it will be dull , but both batsmen and bowlers need to show patience.
 
Partnership 77 runs so far, WI need to carry on.

300 will not be enough , Indians will bat for long time here.
 
If these two can bat until tea, then India might feel a little nervous about that WI 1st innings total.
 
Shami produces some good deliveries even on flat tracks. A huge upgrade over our Ishant Sharma.
