India vs West Indies.
India vs West Indies: The first day of the first Test between India and West Indies was all about 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw who impressed everyone with his style of batting and scored a century on his Test debut. Shaw scored 134 runs in a flawless knock and dominated the visitors throughout the day. He added over 200 runs for the second wicket with Cheteshwar Pujara (86). “I don’t know how I manage but whenever go in the middle, I try to play to the merit of the ball and even in this game I went in with the same mindset. I did not try anything new thinking it is my first Test. Played the same way I have played India A and domestic cricket,” Shaw said after his knock.
Virat Kohli then took charge as India finished day 1 at 364/4. Rishabh Pant was batting at the other end. The duo started well on day 2 as well extending India’s dominance. Kohli scored his 24th Test ton on the way. The series presents the side with an opportunity to address a few key issues before this year’s tour of Australia.
In the bowling department, the team will be without the two leading fast-bowlers – Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. The onus to pick wickets will be on three specialist spinners – Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav.
