India vs West Indies

It was the second century of the Indian innings after 18-year-old opener Prithvi Shaw made 134 on day one to become India's youngest batsman to score a century on debut.

Rajkot: West Indies lost Shai Hope for 17 runs, but Kieran Powell continued his good form as he neared a half-century.

Leg-spinner Bishoo removed Ashwin and Kuldeep to finish with four wickets, but had conceded 217 off his 54 overs.

Left with the final session to navigate, West Indies made a mess of their reply as seamer Mohammed Shami (2-11) made key strikes to put in train the Windies' demise.

The Windies are now struggling at 94-6, with Keemo Paul (13 runs) and Roston Chase (27) at the crease. He added a further 23 runs for the unbeaten last wicket with Shami (2 not out).

Another netizen tweeted, "The run out was incredible india at a best".

Kohli, who played near flawless innings and looked to aim at a second double hundred against these opponents, was dismissed for 139 runs off 230 balls.

Now, instead of throwing it towards one of the fielders, Jadeja causally walked towards the stumps with the ball in his hand and hit the bails.

Ravindra Jadeja smashed his maiden global century as India posted their highest total against the West Indies after declaring on 649-9 in the first Test in Rajkot on Friday.

Indian duo of Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant were at the crease when India ended Day 1 of the first Test against West Indies at 364 for 4 at Rajkot on Thursday.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Pant brought the morning alive with his attacking cricket as he hit eight fours and four sixes during his 84-ball blitz.

Kohli (120 not out) had the company of Ravindra Jadeja (19 not out off 33) when lunch was taken.

He had extended his sixth-wicket stand with Jadeja to 64 when he departed in the sixth over after the resumption, clipping Lewis to Bishoo at mid-on.
