India vs West Indies Highlights, 1st Test Day 2: Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant started the second day of the first Test between India and West Indies on a positive note. The duo took over from last evening and took the Indian cricket team past 400 at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium. Teenage sensation Prithvi Shaw announced his arrival in top-flight cricket by becoming the youngest Indian to score a Test century on debut, headlining the home team’s march to 364 for four. Shaw (134 off 154) laid the foundation for a big score along with Cheteshwar Pujara (86 off 130) after the early loss of KL Rahul (0).
Virat Kohli then took innings forward and looks set for a big hundred. He was batting on 72 runs with Rishabh Pant (17 not out off 21) at the close of play. Eighty-nine overs were bowled on day one with India scoring at 4.08 runs per over.
The visitors suffered a big setback minutes before the toss when Jason Holder was ruled out due to an injury. In his absence, no bowler apart from Shanon Gabriel was able to create an impact on a greenish surface which did not seem to do much.
