After Indian spinners ran through the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President XI's batting lineup on day one of the second warm-up game, it was time for the batsmen to step up to the occasion and let their bats do the talking.

WICB President XI were all out for 180 runs on day one of the warm-up game at the Basseterre in St Kitts. 

India came out to bat on day two and almost all the batsmen contributed. KL Rahul (64, 127b, 9x4, 1x6), skipper Virat Kohli (51, 94b, 4x4) and Ravindra Jadeja (56, 61b, 8x4) were the top three batsmen for India as all of them scored a fifty each.

Stuart Binny, Cheteshwar Pujara, Murali Vijay, Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin also contributed with the bat. With this cohesive effort, India posted a total of 364.

Rahkeem Cornwall was the pick of the bowlers for WICB President's XI as he picked up a five-for (31.4-3-118-5).

WICB President's XI came out to bat again in the second innings and they already lost the wicket of Leon Johnson on the last ball of day two.

WICB President's XI still trail by 158 runs with nine wickets remaining. However, if they will want to avoid a collapse like the first innings, then they will have to bat really well in the second innings. Tackling the spin of Ashwin, Jadeja and Mishra will be a tough challenge for them.

India, on the other hand, have a good chance of winning this match if they can manage to pick those remaining nine wickets on day three of the warm-up match on Saturday.
