India vs West Indies

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

Veteran Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh made a cheeky comment on the West Indies cricket team, now on the tour to India for two Tests, five ODIs and three T20 internationals.

The Indian batsmen plundered runs after being sent in to bat early in the first test as captain Virat Kohli, debutant Prithvi Shaw and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja smashed majestic centuries leading the team on to a score of 649.

Already set back by the loss of seasoned new-ball bowler Kemar Roach who returned to Barbados last week, due to the death of his grandmother, West Indies suffered yet another blow when captain Jason Holder was ruled out of the match with an ankle injury.

At lunch, the West Indies were 33 for one in nine overs in their second innings with Ashwin removing skipper Kraigg Brathwaite (10) for his fourth wicket of the day.

Offensive Struggles Plague Cowboys In 24-13 Loss To Seahawks
The fact that the Seahawks are facing the Cowboys is certainly part of what makes this interesting. Asked if there was a chance Thomas would miss Week 3, Carroll said: "We'll see how he's doing".

Only right-hander Roston Chase, unbeaten on 27, showed any enterprise as wickets tumbled around him, leaving the Windies still trailing by a mammoth 555 runs heading into Saturday's third day. However, any hopes of quickly wrapping up the innings were dashed by Jadeja who belted five fours and five sixes in a 132-ball innings, to frustrate the Windies.

India made 143 runs in the afternoon session, scoring at close to 4.5 runs an over.

Virat Kohli has broken Sachin Tendulkar's record to become the fastest Indian player to register 24 Test centuries. His superb knock was laced with five fours and five sixes.

Pant, who made his debut series in England memorable with a hundred, played his usual attacking game from ball one, flicking it nonchalantly through square leg to get going.
