Here are the updates from Day 3 of the first Test between India and West Indies.
Resuming their first innings on 94 for six at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, West Indies were dismissed for 181, almost three-quarters of an hour before lunch, with Roston Chase converting his overnight 27 into a top score of 53 and tail-ender Keemo Paul hitting an aggressive 47. Apart from the record-breaking knock by skipper Virat Kohli, the highlight of the match was Prithvi Shaw who registered a century in his debut Test and was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match award.
- Gyani Baba (@IMGyaniBaba) October 6, 2018Sad to see this situation of West Indies cricket. there was a time when people fear playing against them. hope they do get some good players and compete at worldwide level.
The margin of victory surpassed India's previous record, set when they beat Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs at Bengaluru earlier this year.
Jadeja had to wait till his 38th Test to reach three figures, having made his debut back in December 2012.
Ravindra Jadeja, who too scored a maiden Test century that too at his home ground, was also a contender for the title as he scalped 4 wickets in the match along with the century.
He led an inspired spin attack with Jadeja claiming three wickets and Ravichandran Ashwin taking two.
Needing a solid performance after being kept in the field for the first two sessions, West Indies experienced a nightmare start when captain Kraigg- Brathwaite's (2) off-stump was sent cartwheeling by Mohammed Shami in the third over, after the right-hander was late on a defensive jab. In between those wickets, Shimron Hetmyer was run out for 10 after a mix-up with Ambris.
He took a dig at the Windies' Test credentials and questioned if they will be able to qualify for even for the Ranji Trophy in the Plate group. They showed us how to bat.
"Didn't get enough partnerships as a batting unit". Two or three partnerships would hold us very well. Meanwhile, the visitors have a few days in hand to recover themselves from a thumping loss as the second Test will be played from October 12 in Hyderabad.
"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.
