India vs West Indies: Virat Kohli surpasses Sachin Tendulkar with gritty ton

India vs West Indies: Virat Kohli surpasses Sachin Tendulkar with gritty ton

Young Shaw is set to become the 293rd Test player for India. The innings, however, came to end soon after as he tried to pick up the ante. This is the 31st time that India have scored 600 and more runs in an innings, second only to Australia's 34.

Highlights, India vs West Indies 2018, 1st Test Day 1 at Rajkot: India win toss, opt to bat. Subsequently, Shaw offered an easy return catch to leggie Devendra Bishoo trying to play against the turn.

The tourists, wearied by spending nearly 150 overs in the field, then crumbled, with Mohammed Shami (2-11) ousting openers Kraigg Brathwaite (2) and Kieran Powell (1) and Jadeja seizing a wicket and a run out as Windies closed 555 runs behind with only four wickets intact. His quick-fire stand with Umesh Yadav saw India cruise past the 600-run mark. The Mumbai lad reached the milestone in just 56 balls.

Their sorry batting performance came after a forgettable outing with the ball as India piled on the runs. India scored 142 in the first session as the Windies bowlers looked out of ideas, lacked bite and creativity.


While Kohli did take a backseat in the first session, he reached his century with a boundary to fine-leg in the 107th over of the innings.

Kohli put on 133 with Pant, who smashed eight fours and four sixes in his 84-ball knock against an inexperienced attack, only to fall eight runs short of a second Test ton when he edged a Bishoo googly to Keemo Paul. Trying to hit over long-on, he ended up sending a leading edge straight to point.

Day 1 report: India dominated the proceedings on the opening day of the first Test against the West Indies as the hosts posted 364/4 at stumps, thanks to a brilliant show by opener Prithvi Shaw, here on Thursday.
