India vs West Indies

Prithvi Shaw brought up his debut hundred off just 99 balls

The opening day completely belonged to India with young debutant from Mumbai Prithvi Shaw hammering a Test debut ton. Royston Chase 53 (79), West Indies 159/8 after 43.2 overs. For the West Indies, they have a mountain to climb.

By tea, Jadeja had struck an unbeaten 100 off 132 off balls to be the third centurion of the innings.

Ravendra Jadeja joined Kohli and they posted a 64-run partnership before Shermon Lewis returned for the scalp of Kohli.

Jadeja had to wait till his 38th Test to reach three figures, having made his debut back in December 2012.

Tendulkar was aged 17 when he scored 119 not out against England in 1990, but that was in his ninth Test match.

Jadeja enthralled the sparse crowd at the SCA stadium with aerial hits which came mainly off the spinners. His entertaining knock finally comes to an end after attempting to smash Umesh Yadav for a boundary, only to lob the bouncer down to Pujara who makes no mistake. Pant was especially merciless, scoring runs at a belligerent rate.

India captain Virat Kohli called in Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami a ball after the all-rounder brought up his maiden Test hundred in the 150th over.

India had earlier turned the screws on the Windies after resuming the day on 364 for four, with Kohli becoming the second fastest batsman in history to reach 24 Test hundreds, after the iconic Sir 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.

Pant played his usual attacking game from ball one, flicking the ball through square leg to get going. He used his strong wrists to get to the desired elevation and distance.

His eyes lit up when spinners were employed after first hour of the morning and welcomed Roston Chase with a four and six.
