Kohli second only to Bradman in getting 24 Test centuries

Adjust Comment Print

In the first session, skipper Virat Kohli brought up his 24th Test century while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant missed out on one after a blistering 92 as India raced to 506/5.

Kohli scored his 24th century in worldwide cricket today and break many records en-route his century. Just into his second Test, Paul hit seven fours and two sixes during his 49-ball stay. Kohli departed soon as well, failing to read a slower delivery from Lewis to be caught at mid-on for 139 while Ashwin too followed suit, caught behind off Bishoo for 7. Jadeja took down the bails but not before he shocked everyone by delaying the throw.

Pant's innings was studded with eight fours and four sixes.

Roston Chase and Kierron Powell were looking to stitch together a steady partnership but Kuldeep was once again the wicket-taker for India as he fooled Chase with his flight and the West Indies batsman ended up giving an easy catch to Ravichandran Ashwin.

With the cushion of such a massive total, the hosts went on the attack from the word go and were rewarded instantly.

The Windies never got the solid foundation they needed as Shami uprooted Kraigg Brathwaite's off-stump with the score on two.

Opener Kieran Powell fought a lonely battle to score 83 runs before becoming Kuldeep's fifth victim in another disappointing batting show by the Caribbean side. With wickets tumbling rather alarmingly, Ambris chose to take Ashwin and slammed him for two fours - one over extra cover and the other over deep midwicket. In less than five overs of his introduction - and within a space of three overs - he had picked up wickets with the conventional turner, wrong-un and the one that dips on the batsman a lot more than usual, to send Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer and Sunil Ambris back into the hut. His entertaining knock finally comes to an end after attempting to smash Umesh Yadav for a boundary, only to lob the bouncer down to Pujara who makes no mistake. He added a further 23 runs for the unbeaten last wicket with Shami (2 not out).
