Ind vs WI - 1st Test, Rajkot, day 2

West Indies reeling after India post record 649

Rajkot: West Indies were 94 for six at stumps, trailing India by 555 runs in their first innings on day two of the opening Test in Rajkot on Friday.

Roston Chase, on 27, and Keemo Paul, on 13, were batting at close of play against a persistent Indian bowling attack.

Fast bowler Mohammed Shami took two wickets. Shami draws the first blood for India as he clean bowls Kraigg Brathwaite for 2. Shami's foot landed just on the line but the TV umpire didn't call it a no ball. And then he traps Kieran Powell in front and the ball crashed into the pads of the left-handed batsman.

Ashwin cleans up Shai Hope (10) with a straighter one. The batsman failed to read the line of the ball and looked to defend it, thinking it was going to turn, but the ball remained straight and went brushing the off-stump

A mix-up into the middle costs Hetmyer (10) his wicket. Jadeja could do nothing wrong today as he effected the run out in such a manner that left the entire team in splits.

Ravindra Jadeja gets a wicket on the very first ball he bowled as Sunil Ambris (12) is caught at slip cordon and West Indies are 49/5.

Kuldeep Yadav gets his first wicket of the innings as he cleans up Shane Dowrich with a chinaman and the batsman departs for 10.

Brief scores:
West Indies 94 for 6 (Shami 2-11) trail India 649 for 6 decl. (Kohli 139, Shaw 134, Jadeja 100*, Pant 92) by 555 runs

Earlier India posted their highest Test total against the West Indies after declaring on 649-9 at tea.

Showing complete dominance, the Indian batting line-up bruised the West Indies bowling attack by piling up a mammoth total on board.

Post-lunch, it was skipper Virat Kohli (139) and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja (100*) who spearheaded India's attack on the opposition bowlers. Both the players built a 64-run partnership keeping their side in full control of the match.

Jadeja, who had impressed everyone with his all-round performance during the recently-concluded Asia Cup, did not disappoint on his home ground as he smashed a 132-ball century to help India cross the 600-run mark.

Pacer Umesh Yadav (22) and spinner Kuldeep Yadav (12) were among the other contributors for the Indian side.

Resuming the second day at a score of 364, Indian skipper Virat Kohli continued his rich vein of form as he not only notched up yet another hundred off 184 balls but also shared a crucial partnership of 133 runs with Rishabh Pant (92) for the fifth wicket to help India cross the 500-run mark at lunch.
