    LIVE Cricket Score, India vs West Indies 2018, 1st Test Day 1: Prithvi Shaw, the 18-year old, says that he is feeling really good now, after the century but before that, he was pretty nervous, he admits. Stresses that he has got lots of runs in domestic cricket but was trying to remind himself to forget all that. Agrees that he did think that it was his first Test innings and he had doubts about how to play but then as he got into the groove of things, he decided to play according to the merit of the delivery. On his century celebration, Shaw says that he was remembering his father as the latter has sacrificed a lot for the youngster’s career. On his maturity in cricket, Prithvi says that he has played a lot of cricket right from the age of schooling and has gained a lot of experience from all those. On his disappointment after losing his wicket, Shaw says that he is definitely not happy with his score on this track as it is a good wicket to bat on. Adding further, he says that it was the last over before Tea and he could have avoided that shot, though he later admits that the stickiness on that delivery after bouncing did him in.

    LIVE Cricket Score, India vs West Indies 2018, 1st Test Day 1: SIX! Not in control but it has gone all the way! Gabriel digs in a short delivery, well-targeted at the batsman, doesn’t matter to Pant if the close of play is just around the corner. He goes on with his pull shot, doesn’t get it away off the meat of his blade but it still flies over fine leg for a biggie. India 362/4 vs West Indies in Rajkot

    LIVE Cricket Score, India vs West Indies 2018, 1st Test Day 1: Four byes! As if the Indian batsmen aren’t scoring enough themselves that Windies are helping them with gifts like these. Chases fails to grip the new ball and fires it way down the leg side. Kohli lets it be and Dowrich has no chance of stopping it. A boundary at fine leg.

    LIVE Cricket Score, India vs West Indies 2018, 1st Test Day 1: OUT! There is some spike on the Snicko and Rahane has to walk back. Windies are delighted. They have got a wicket against the run of play. The move to not opt for the second new ball and continue with the old one has provided them a breakthrough. Chase is the one to break this 105-run stand. Not a delivery to brag about though. It’s short and wide outside off, begging to be dispatched. Rahane obliges as he goes deep inside the crease with a square cut. But he fails to middle his shot and Dowrich immediately jumps in joy after collecting the ball. They appeal and the finger goes up. Rahane has a chat with his skipper who seldom says no to a DRS taking opportunity. The replays roll in and Snicko puts everything to rest. Waste of a review, none left for India now. India 337/4 vs West Indies in Rajkot

    LIVE Cricket Score, India vs West Indies 2018, 1st Test Day 1: Huge shout for a caught behind. The finger has gone up. Ajinkya Rahane walks up to his skipper, has a chat with him and then signals for the DRS. Wonder why? He must be knowing whether he has edged it or not. Let’s find out.

Highlights, India vs West Indies 2018, 1st Test Day 1 at Rajkot: India win toss, opt to bat. All eyes will be on debutant Prithvi Shaw as India host West Indies in the first Test at Rajkot. Young Shaw is set to become the 293rd Test player for India. When India announced a 15-member squad for the two Tests, it was clear that the management was looking at this series as a preparatory pad for the upcoming Australia tour. Hence, the non-selection of Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay clearly indicated Kohli and the management plan. On the other hand, Jason Holder and Co would look to push India and give them a run for their money. They are an inexperienced team, who know little about the Indian conditions and how to play world class spin.

“Test cricket is my favourite format and it was really good to see most, if not everyone in our group, saying the same thing. In the last 2-3 years, we’ve played some of the top teams and we’ve pushed them,” said Holder at the pre-match press conference.

In the bowling department, Kohli is likely to stick to three spinners – Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Kuldeep Yadav. Umesh Yadav and Mohammad Shami will lead the pace attack in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has been rested for the short series.

West Indies squad: Jason Holder (c), Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Jahmar Hamilton, Shannon Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Sherman Lewis, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican

India squad: Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Prithvi Shaw, Hanuma Vihari, Kuldeep Yadav, Mayank Agarwal, Mohammed Siraj
