Kohli quickest to 24th Test ton after Bradman

Kohli quickest to 24th Test ton after Bradman

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.

Lokesh Rahul was trapped lbw off Shannon Gabriel for nought in the very first over, after skipper Virat Kohli's men elected to bat first. He delivered the masterclass batting style in the first match against Windies. 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). 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. With the tour of Australia just a month away, the team looks determined to get into the match simulation, but then, with Rajkot simmering at 39 degrees, it needs to be seen how the wicket would eventually behave over the next five days. Unfortunately, Shaw fell at the stroke of tea, in what was a soft dismissal as he chipped one straight into the hands of leggie Devendra Bishoo.

Pujara also played an uncharacteristically quick knock as he brought up fifty off 67 deliveries, but missed out on his hundred after being caught behind off debutant paceman Sherman Lewis.
