Virat Kohli Century Helps India Dominate

Share

India ended Day 1 in the 1st Test against West Indies at Antigua on 302/4, riding high on Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 197-ball-143. Shikhar Dhawan too began the tour with a confident knock of 84 at the top of the order. Devendra Bishoo was the destroyer-in-chief from the West Indian side, picking up the wickets of Dhawan, Pujara and Rahane in his 27 overs.

Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan stand tall on Day 1

Opting to bat first after winning the toss, India lost Murali Vijay quite early in the innings. Cheteshwar Pujara too could not keep his anchor down for much long, as he was sent back for a score of 16. At 74/2, India were in dire need of consolidation, which came via a morale boosting 105-run stand between Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan. The left-hander was unfortunate to miss out on a well deserved century, as he was dismissed right at the stroke of tea. Kohli, however, continued to play his shots and kept the hosts under pressure in the last session too. He was assisted by Ravichandran Ashwin, who remained unbeaten on 22 and forged a crucial 66-run stand for the 5th wicket with his captain.

India would be keen to get to a 450-plus total by Tea on Day 2. However, with Wriddhiman Saha as the only specialist batsman to come after this, West Indies would be looking to bowl out the Indians within 400. Much would however depend on how long Kohli manages to stay at the wicket and maneuver the long tail that India have in this match.
