The table-toppers of both North and South groups are involved on another day of T20 Blast action.
At least one team from North Division have cemented a place in quarterfinals. South Division is still open.
West Indies already have a mountain to climb, and with Kohli and Rahane settling in, wickets early in the day will be key.
India moved to a strong position against West Indies whereas the other two Tests are moving towards tight finish.
England batsmen need to continue showing resistance and bat through the first session to stand any chance of securing victory.
