In contrast to their first innings collapse, West Indies, after being asked to follow on, put up a valiant fight before being bundled out for 463 in 126.3 overs eight minutes before the scheduled tea break.
At one stage, the West Indies were staring at their biggest ever loss against India (an innings and 112 runs, Mumbai 2002) but Bravo weaved two century partnerships -- with Chanderpaul (108 runs) and Marlon Samuels (132) -- to save his side from the dubious record.
Resuming at his overnight score of 38, Bravo put up a superb batting display to notch up his second Test century in less than a month with both coming in second innings. He hit 16 boundaries and four sixes in his innings from 230 balls.
For India, pacer Umesh Yadav was the most successful bowler with three wickets today to return with innings figure of four for 80, while the spin duo of Pragyan Ojha (2/104) and R Ashwin (2/137) claimed the remaining wickets. Pacer Ishant Sharma (2/95) had claimed two wickets on Wednesday.
Veteran batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, playing with a stiff calf muscle, gave Bravo good company with 47 (94 balls, 6x4).
