India declare on 500-9, giving themselves a 304-run lead in a rain-affected day three of the second Test against the West Indies.

India declared on 500 runs to give themselves a lead of 304 in a rain-affected day three of the second Test against the West Indies in Kingston.

Stumps was called early due to bad light following a rain disruption, and while India are in the driving seat, there will be some nervous heads given that the weather forecast is not in their favour.

Ajinkya Rahane impressed with the bat as he reached his seventh Test century, ending the day unbeaten on 108, but the West Indies' bowlers had a positive day.

India were 358-5 at the beginning of play, but they lost a further four wickets as Jason Holder nabbed his first of the match, while Roston Chase took three, including Amit Mishra (21), Mohammed Shami (0) and Umesh Yadav (19).

India have a 1-0 lead in the series after winning the first Test by an innings and 92 runs.
