India vs West Indies (Ind vs WI) 1st Test Highlights: India have finished Day 1 of the first Test in Antigua at 203/6. Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja were the unbeaten batsmen for the visitors when rain forced play to be called off prematurely. West Indies put India in a spot of bother after electing to field first. A terrific opening spell on a lively pitch by seamers Kemar Roach and Shanon Gabriel left India reeling at 25/3 in 8 overs. Ajinkya Rahane (81) then combined with KL Rahul (44) and Hanuma Vihari (32) to steady the ship thereon. However, West Indies struck back in the Tea session to again put India in a bit of trouble. Rain came down in the 69th over to stop play.
A win in the opening Test will be the 27th for Kohli as skipper and will put him on an even keel with his predecessor Mahendra Singh Dhoni. A century in the game (19th as captain) will place him on par with Ricky Ponting. On paper, a batting line-up that has Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant in the ranks should be termed clear favourites but this West Indies team, led by Jason Holder, is no pushover.
