India vs West Indies: Ravichandran Ashwin surpasses Harbhajan Singh in elite list

India vs West Indies,Prithvi Shaw,Prithvi Shaw debut

Kohli was not alone in reaching triple figures against the Windies; debutant opener Prithvi Shaw also achieved the feat on day one of the match.

"With all due respect to West Indies Cricket but I have a question for u all...will this west Indies team qualify for Ranji quarters from the plate group?"

The West Indies were always going to find it tough against India, more so without their captain Jason Holder and senior pacer Kemar Roach.

Mohammed Shami picked up two wickets while Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Kuldeep Yadav picked up one wicket each. Playing with number eleven batsman Shami, he experienced the nervous 90s before finally getting to the milestone in the final over before tea.

Jadeja enthralled the sparse crowd at the SCA stadium with aerial hits which came mainly off the spinners. 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.

Kohli, 72 overnight, went on to complete a 24th Test century during the morning session, after wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant fell just short of his own hundred - out for 92, with India looking well set on 470 for five.

Tail-ender Keemo Paul, in only his second Test, bludgeoned a four and a six in an unbeaten 13 to see West Indies to the close.

The diminutive right-hander becomes India's second youngest century-maker after Sachin Tendulkar, who in 1990 was 17 years and 112 days when he made 119 not out against in England in Manchester during his ninth Test appearance.

Kohli enjoyed his teammates' fluent strokeplay from the other end as Pant raced to his half century with a four and six off pacer Paul. It was a display of brute power.
