But the crucial breakthrough for India came in the next over when Ojha was brought on from the pavilion end, a switch of end that finally did the trick for India in the form of Bravo's key wicket.
Bravo edged a straight delivery at slip with Rahul Dravid taking the catch easily for a breakthrough and that opened the floodgates for India.
Maintaining his tidy line and length, Ojha tempted Bravo for an expansive push that got the edge and the wicket.
New batsman Carlton Baugh edged another delivery from Ojha at slip and 38-year-old Dravid, with most catches in Tests, did not make any mistake taking a brilliant low catch diving to his right.
India struck in successive overs to reduce West Indies to 417 for seven with Ashwin claiming the scalp of aggressive looking Samuels.
