West Indies all out for 181, India enforce Follow-on

At the end of day 1, India 364/4 and is looking to cross 400+ mark on day 2 giving visitors a tough day.

Hello and welcome to Sportstar's live coverage of Day 1 of the first Test between host India and visitor West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Thursday. Bradman took just 66 innings to achieve the same feat.

Kohli eventually brought up his century as he shared in a 133-run partnership with Pant. Bishoo was the best Windies bowler, taking 4/217 followed by Shermon Lewis with 2/93. However, any hopes of quickly wrapping up the innings were dashed by Jadeja who belted five fours and five sixes in a 132-ball innings, to frustrate the Windies.

He made 134 off 154 deliveries with the help of 19 boundaries before being caught and bowled by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo in the last over before tea.

Fast bowler Mohammed Shami then struck early to get the two West Indian openers back in the pavilion for seven runs including stand-in-skipper Kraigg Brathwaite for two.

Shaw became India's second-youngest century maker after Sachin Tendulkar as he reached three figures early in the second session.

The top order did not withstand the Indian bowling attack, as Shami accounted for both openers and then a horrendous mix-up saw Shimron Hetmyer run-out just when he looked to be settling. With wickets tumbling rather alarmingly, Ambris chose to take Ashwin and slammed him for two fours - one over extra cover and the other over deep midwicket. For India, Shami, who went off the ground after his sixth over with what seemed like a side strain, picked up 2 for 11, while Ashwin, Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav managed a wicket each. Wicketkeeper Pant smashed 4 sixes and 8 fours as he raced towards a century which would have been the fourth of the Indian innings.
