Jadeja hits debut ton as India declare on record 649-9

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

Ravindra Jadeja savours reaching his landmark against the West Indies.

The Indian batsmen plundered runs after being sent in to bat early in the first test as captain Virat Kohli, debutant Prithvi Shaw and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja smashed majestic centuries leading the team on to a score of 649. For the visitors, Bishoo was the most successful of the bowlers picking up four wickets, but conceded a whopping 217 runs in 57 overs. That baffled India captain Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and the bowler Ravichandran Ashwin.

However, there was some early celebration for the Windies when Gabriel struck Rahul in front with the sixth ball of the match with just three runs on the board. In between those wickets, Shimron Hetmyer was run out for 10 after a mix-up with Ambris. They trail India by 555 runs and the hosts will fancy themselves to bowl them out twice by day three. As the last pair in the wicket, Jadeja and Mohammad Shami picked up the singles.

Now, instead of throwing it towards one of the fielders, Jadeja causally walked towards the stumps with the ball in his hand and hit the bails.

Who spoke in the Kavanaugh investigation — FBI interviews
Kavanaugh, in a fiery response, rejected the allegations and further sexual misconduct claims against him from two other women. At the hearing, he vehemently defended his innocence and derided what he called "a calculated and orchestrated political hit".

India vs West Indies day 1 of 1st Test will telecast on the Star Sports Network.

Kohli, who started on his overnight score of 72, got to his hundred in his 123rd innings with a boundary off Bishoo.

Pant, a 21-year-old left-hander in only his fourth Test, played with abandon, striking eight fours and four sixes off a mere 84 balls, before perishing about 45 minutes before the interval. 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.

Shaw, the second-youngest Indian player to have made a Test century behind Sachin Tendulkar, produced the mainstay of the hosts' innings, which closed at 364-4.
