Ravindra Jadeja played a key role in extending India's first innings as they were eventually dismissed for 297 on the stroke of lunch on the second day of the first Test against the West Indies at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
Jadeja then took a wicket with his left-arm-spin as the West Indies  reached tea at 82 for three in their first innings. Mohammed Shami and  Ishant Sharma took one wicket each as Darren Bravo (18 not out) and Roston Chase (10 not out) were at the crease. 
Earlier, Jadeja, who had a big fight on Twitter with Sanjay Manjrekar after the former Indian batsman called him a 'bits and pieces' cricketer,  was last out for 58, top-edging an attempted pull off home captain Jason Holder to give wicketkeeper Shai Hope his fifth catch of the innings.
Kemar Roach finished the innings as the best of the West Indies bowlers with figures of four for 66 while fellow fast bowler Shannon Gabriel claimed three for 71.
It was Roach who gave the West Indies an ideal start to the day when he removed Rishabh Pant for 24, the attacking wicketkeeper-batsman offering a straightforward catch to Holder at second slip as India slipped from the overnight position of 203 for six to 207 for seven.
Jadeja's three-hour innings spanned 112 deliveries and was highlighted by six fours and one six.
