Prithvi Shaw, 18, became India's youngest player to score a debut century and his country's second youngest in all Tests after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, notching up a sparkling 134.

With tea beckoning, West Indies struck twice to temporarily stall India's progress. Recently, former West Indies captain Carl Hooper was critical of youngsters in the island nations being only interested in T20 contracts but without taking names, the current skipper presented a contrarian view. However, Pujara only plays one format and Kohli is coming back after some rest, so Mayank Agarwal can only be included in the XI if India go with six batsmen.

West Indies were 33 for 1 in their second innings after following on at lunch on the third day of the first Test against India here on Saturday.

Speaking at the press conference, Jadeja said that he was very happy with his innings and he dedicated his maiden Test century to his mother because she always wanted him to play for India.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) have announced a 15-man squad for the five-match ODI series against India that includes three new faces in form of opener Chandrapaul Hemraj, fast bowler Oshane Thomas and allrounder Fabian Allen.

"It can be frustrating at times but as a player you just make sure you're switched on and prepared for whatever is thrown at you", said Chris Woakes.

The other cause for concern is that their bowling attack was practically ineffective - the pacers made no impact, and the spinners weren't able to halt India's run-scoring spree which allowed the hosts to pile up 649 in the first innings. So I think the quality of the ball has to be maintained, there's no doubt about that. "The team will be led by Shreyas Iyer, who captained Mumbai in their last two games in the league stage", he said to TOI. "So I don't understand why people would be this harsh towards us".

Number 10 and 11 were easy meat for Aswhin who sent them back with the away turning ball. The all-rounder, who is yet to get fully fit for the second Test, looked clearly unhappy with all the barbs thrown at his inexperienced side. The pitch was not as quick, the harder ball comes onto the bat, so you have more boundary opportunities. Although Caribbean player Powell was meant to pull the match for the third day but Kuldeep grabbed him as his fifth wicket.
