India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 1 Highlights: Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant took India to 364/4 at stumps on Day 1 of first Test against West Indies. Kohli is once again on course to a big score having piled on a fifty already. The day, however, belonged to 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw who scored 134 runs on his debut and gave West Indies little respite. He played confidently, positively and scored freely to put together 206 runs alongside Cheteshwar Pujara. India lost Ajinkya Rahane in the final session but the day belonged to India with utter ease. India had won the toss and opted to bat.

Short by Shannon Gabriel, Virat Kohli rocks on the backfoot and glides the ball towards third man for two runs. It brings up the 350 for India in the 87th over

16:36 (IST)04 Oct 2018
GONE! Ajinkya Rahane gone for 41

Ajinkya Rahane c Dowrich b Royston Chase 41. Ajinkya Rahane takes the review for a caught behind but it comes in West Indies' favour. Consulted with the captain before going upstairs. Spike on the UltraEdge decides his fate. India lose the review and wicket. India 337/4

16:27 (IST)04 Oct 2018

Skipper Kraigg Brathwaite in the attack and his line is all wrong. On the pads and Kohli plays it down to the fine leg fence with a faint tickle.

16:18 (IST)04 Oct 2018

India's skipper keeps on piling up runs. Number 1 ranked Test batsman and there's a reason for that. Touch short outside off by Bishoo, Kohli rocks back and cuts it past the fielder at backward point. The fielder in the deep restricts them to a double. Kohli's 20th Test fifty

15:35 (IST)04 Oct 2018
Slowed things down

After the flurry of runs seen in the opening two sessions under Prithvi Shaw, things have slowed down considerably in the final session. Virat Kohli on 31, Ajinkya Rahane on 15 as India move along to 276/3

14:50 (IST)04 Oct 2018

GONE! Prithvi Shaw departs for 134 runs

Prithvi Shaw c & b Bisho 134 (154). Poor shot in the end sees the exit of debutant and centurion Prithvi Shaw. Hands a simple catch back to Bishoo who happily takes it. Stands there looking at the surface and then back at the bowler. Accepts his fate eventually and walks. Conventional leg-break from Bishoo that might have stopped on the surface, but Shaw still had to counter it properly, instead he lobs it back with feet stuck in the crease. Tired looking shot in the end. Crowd applaud his fantastic job on debut. 

14:06 (IST)04 Oct 2018

That kind of day where even bad shots go for boundaries for Prithvi Shaw. Flighted outside off by Chase, Shaw gets low and flat-bats the drive but ends up slicing it over extra cover and the ball has enough to trickle into the fence

13:33 (IST)04 Oct 2018
GONE! Cheteshwar Pujara exits for 86

GONE! Cheteshwar Pujara falls short of the century mark by 14 runs. Just after the 200-run stand between himself and Shaw, Pujara falls to Sherman Lewis. Maiden Test wicket for Lewis. Outside the off stump, Pujara has a little go at it and gets an outside edge. Taken by Dowrich behind the stumps. Almost a nothing and a needless shot and Pujara pays for it. 

13:22 (IST)04 Oct 2018

WHAT. A. SHOT! Sherman Lewis with a touch outside off, Prithvi bends his knees and opens the face of the bat late to steer the ball towards the third man boundary. Beautiful connection with the bat

13:06 (IST)04 Oct 2018
Testing weather

Virat Kohli opted to bat because of the heat and dry weather in Rajkot. The energy sapping weather has Keemo Paul down. Getting some much needed fluid into the system

12:48 (IST)04 Oct 2018

CENTURY FOR PRITHVI SHAW FROM 99 BALLS! Pushes the ball for a double and becomes 15th Indian to get a hundred on debut. What a glorious inning this has been! Maiden Test hundred on Test debut for the teenager! Third fastest Test hundred on debut, second youngest Indian to score a Test hundred after Sachin Tendulkar

12:37 (IST)04 Oct 2018

Width on offer by Shannon Gabriel and Prithvi Shaw spanks it for a boundary. Moves up to 97 from 95 balls

12:25 (IST)04 Oct 2018

Prithvi Shaw moves into the 90s with a boundary. No surprise there. Short by Bishoo, Shaw gets low and pulls it away to backward square leg for four

12:13 (IST)04 Oct 2018
Second sesssion underway

Devendra Bishoo to get the second session underway. Prithvi Shaw on the batting end. Second ball and Shaw plays a slog sweep to bring up a boundary. Doesn't take long to once again but the bowler on the defence. Next ball, another four, this time confident and lofted over for a boundary

11:32 (IST)04 Oct 2018

LUNCH! India go into the Lunch break at 133/1 from 25 overs. Prithvi Shaw unbeaten on 75, Cheteshwar Pujara on 56

11:30 (IST)04 Oct 2018
Edged, FOUR!

Possibly first unsure shot by Prithvi Shaw and still goes for a boundary. West Indies fielders and bowler Sherman Lewis can't believe it. Banged in short, comes into the debutant, tries to slash but with little width on offer, gets a thick outside edge that splits the slips region to run away for a four towards third man

11:24 (IST)04 Oct 2018

Cheteshwar Pujara brings up his 19th Test fifty now. Gets there with a boundary from 67 balls. Pitched up by Sherman Lewis and Pujara plays it down the ground for a boundary towards long off.

Scarred by yet another overseas debacle, India will once again seek home comfort when they take on an inexperienced West Indies in a two-Test series starting here Thursday, aiming to get their combinations in order before the gruelling assignment in Australia. India have endured series losses in South Africa and England over the last nine months but have still managed to remain the number one side in the longest format. A comprehensive beating of the West Indies at this stage can only serve as a morale-booster to the Virat Kohli-led side which faces another stern test with the Australia tour beginning late November.
