Windies under fire against India in first Test

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli looks on as pitch invaders try to click a selfie with him

Shaw led India's fightback after they lost opener Lokesh Rahul for nought in the very first over off Shannon Gabriel.

India's attack continued to pick up regular cheap wickets, before Roston Chase's unbeaten 27 and Keemo Paul (13 not out) offered some kind of late resistance as West Indies finished on 94 for six at the close, still some 555 runs behind.

Ravindra Jadeja, who scored his maiden global century during India's only innings, took the final wicket of Shannon Gabriel for four as the hosts celebrated an utterly dominant win over the former cricketing powerhouse.

Kohli's impressive 139 in the opening match against West Indies in Rajkot also saw him surpass Virender Sehwag in the list of Indian century-makers.

In the first innings, Ashwin first removed Chase with a beauty, a flighted ball that turned in to create a big gap between bat and pad before crashing into the stumps.

They have won Tests by 10 wickets seven times, while India's greatest winning margin by runs was against South Africa in Delhi in 2015, when they won by 337 runs.




Kuldeep ripped through the tourists' middle order, trapping Shai Hope lbw before dismissing Shimron Hetymer and Sunil Ambris in the same over.

"Lovely to see such an attacking knock in your first innings, @prithvishaw!".

But Kohli went on to score his 24th Test hundred, second quickest after Don Bradman.

Pant, a 21-year-old left-hander in only his fourth Test, played with abandon, striking eight fours and four sixes off a mere 84 balls, before perishing about 45 minutes before the interval. He reached the milestone with a four off the second ball of the 107th over, bowled by Devendra Bishoo.

India beat West Indies inside three days to take 1-0 lead in the Test series. He ended up with five boundaries and as many sixes.
