    IND vs WI 1st Test Latest Score and Updates: Is this Indian attack the best in the world? No Bhuvi. No Bumrah. No Hardik. Yet they have piled on the pressure on the opposition. Agreed, the Windies are not that technically sound but this is a terrific team bowling effort. First, you need to see the new balls off in Shami or Bumrah or Bhuvi. Then, you encounter the spin of Ashwin or Jadeja or Kuldeep. The main bowlers did well in England. And here, the bench has strutted its stuff.

    IND vs WI 1st Test Day 2 Live Updates: Forgettable couple of days for the visiting side. First, they were pummeled mercilessly with the bat and then, have been almost skittled out in not even half the time. The players look fagged out under the heat and have simply not turned up. The opening batsmen were clueless against the guile of Shami while the middle order were consumed by spin. Then of course, some generosity was produced as well in a run-out and a wild shot. Overall, nothing much to describe in the tourists’ batting, except for Roston Chase, who has shown the gumption to survive.

    IND vs WI 1st Test Day 2 Live Updates: OUT! Right through! Kuldeep is amongst the wickets as well. Tossed up around off and outside off, Dowrich looks to push it through the off side but is done in by the flight and pace. He misses and the ball spins right in, hitting the timber. This is similar to the way Kuldeep dismissed Peter Handscomb from Australia in the Dharamsala Test. Windies 74/6 vs India (649/9)

    IND vs WI 1st Test Day 2 Live Updates: FOUR! PUMMELED! Full and outside off, Chase comes down the track and swipes it over mid-wicket. The ball just bounces in front of the ropes.

India vs West Indies, 1st Test Highlights: 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 against West Indies on day one of the series opener in Rajkot. Shaw (134 off 154) and Cheteshwar Pujara (86 off 130) laid the foundation for a big score with a 206-run partnership after the early loss of K L Rahul (0).

Skipper Virat Kohli (72 not out off 137) and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane (41 off 92) then took the innings forward with a 105-run stand in the final session, putting India in the driver’s seat before the latter was caught behind off spinner Roston Chase.

Kohli looked set for another hundred and was batting alongside 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 West Indies, handed a big setback even before toss with the last-minute withdrawal of captain Jason Holder, looked ordinary at best on the field. Barring pacer Shanon Gabriel (1/66), none of the bowlers troubled the Indian batsmen on a greenish surface which did not seem to do much.

The opposition attack was far from threatening but due credit must be given to Shaw, who batted like a seasoned campaigner in his first match for India. His back-foot play off the pacers was a treat to the eyes and when spinners were deployed, he was not afraid to use the long handle.

India vs West Indies, 1st Test: Day 1 Highlights

At 18 years and 329 days, Shaw reached the milestone off just 99 balls, adding to a host of records he holds in his blossoming career. He had earlier made waves by reaching three figures in his first Ranji Trophy appearance and was the youngest to hit a century on Duleep Trophy debut.

In the process, Shaw also became the second youngest Indian to score a maiden Test ton after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. Shaw, who was 75 not out at lunch, reached the three figures in the afternoon session with a typical punch to the cover, the same way he got his first runs in international cricket.
