"They are going to come hard at us in this game because it's only a two-match series and you don't have the room to do anything apart from making a comeback at this stage", he said.
Another clinical performance is expected from Virat Kohli & Co, who will take the match as their final preparation before the Australia tour.
That was the only moment of success in the first session for the touring side, who face the stiff task of likely having to bat last against India's spin-heavy attack on a pitch already offering some turn. It would be the last time for the Indian vice-captain to get back in form before the Australian tour, starting in December. But, Kohli's team might not be able to escape a sense of deja vu as it goes into the match.
India declared on a record 649-9 after centuries by Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja before reducing the West Indies to 94-6 by stumps on Friday on the second day of the first test.

For India, the game will be best remembered for the emergence of Prithvi Shaw, who announced his arrival in worldwide cricket with a classy hundred on debut, becoming the youngest from the country to do so in Tests.
The achievement also meant Kuldeep, the chinaman bowler, became only the second Indian after Bhuveshwar Kumar and seventh in the world to have achieved a five-wicket haul in each of the three formats in global cricket.
Shaw wasn't overwhelmed by the occasion as he punished the West Indies bowlers even if they missed their lines and lengths by small margins.
Kieran Powell's 83 and Roston Chase's 53 were the only notable contributions from the visitors' batting line-up in the first game.
