2nd new ball taken on 4th ball of the 83rd over (bowled by Ganesh).
Indian over rate was very slow and play was extended beyond the close by an hour, but bad light stopped the play with 4.2 overs remaining.
After Lunch, Umpire Lloyd Barker was indisposed and off the field as something had fallen into his eyes. The reserve umpire (4th umpire) Dalton Holder stood in for him until the first drinks break after Lunch.
Slow over rate from West Indies (roughly 12.2 per hour) caused the play to be extended an hour beyond. Still the overs couldn't be completed, as the bad light stopped the play.
India had to bat for 6 overs. Bad light stopped the play. For the third straight day, play was extended by another hour after the close of play time.
