India vs West Indies,India vs West Indies 2018,Virat Kohli

Winning the toss and opting to bat on a batting-friendly track, India got off to a bad start as they lost their opener Lokesh Rahul with just three runs on the board but went on to finish the first session at 133/1. He is also the third batsman after Shikhar Dhawan (85 balls) and Dwayne Smith (93) to hit his debut ton in under 100 balls.

India cashed in on the weakened attack by scoring quickly and already, the Windies face a long road back into the match, heading into Friday's day two. The right-hander reviewed in desperation but replays showed the ball hitting middle stump.

Shaw and Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket as the tourists were sent on a leatherhunt for large parts of the second session.

Shaw and Pujara, who came one down, however, maintained their calm and punished the bad deliveries to complete half-centuries. He did the same to Devendra Bishoo in the following over.

He raced into the 90s with another pulled boundary off the ineffective Bishoo before raising three figures off just 99 balls almost three-quarters of an hour after the interval, punching Paul to cover for a couple.

As Thomas was being taken to the locker room, he turned squarely toward the Seahawks' bench area and flipped the bird at someone. Rosen was unable to lead the Cardinals to a comeback and the Bears won 16-14.

With Pant picking boundaries at will, Kohli was in no hurry get to the hundred and when he did get there, the India skipper became the second fastest to 24 Test hundreds behind only Donald Bradman, who took 66 innings to Kohli's 123.

If India is banking on the "tinge of green", West Indies also has the likes of Shannon Gabriel and Jason Holder, who could certainly prove effective on a tad bouncy surface. To make matters worse, Bishoo failed to hold on to a return catch with Kohli on 114.

Unbeaten on four at the interval, Kohli signalled his intentions immediately following the resumption, imperiously driving Lewis to the straight boundary.

The India captain, 29, eased to his 24th Test century and fourth of 2018.

His eyes lit up when spinners were employed after first hour of the morning and welcomed Roston Chase with a four and six.
