Forced to follow on after conceding a 468-run lead, the Windies were bowled out again for 196 inside 50.5 overs on Saturday.

Teammates congratulate Indian bowler Kuldeep Yadav (2R) for taking the wicket of West Indies batsman Keiran Powell during the third day´s play of the first Test cricket match between India and West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on October 6, 2018. India is in the ascendancy and it's only Day 2, already seriously behind the eight-ball, so it's going to take a mammoth effort for us to pull it back. This wicket was slightly better, it still is, hence I was surprised, shocked is the wrong word with the amount of attacking shots, the high risk shots that were played against the spinners. "I am sure they will want to rectify their errors". We want to improve upon the things we need to do, not focus on what the opposition wants to do. "Easy conditions or not, you still have to back yourself to dominate at the Test level and the guy showed that he's different quality and that's why he's been pushed upon into the Indian team and he just grabbed his opportunity with both hands. Exciting to see from a captain's point of view".

It was a maiden Test ton for Jadeja, who had to wait for nearly six years to reach three figures in the five-day format.

"It feels good. It was a great win for the team, more happy for the team". Shami came in and bowled the way only he can. India posted a mammoth total of 649 in the first innings for the loss of nine wickets. Over rates had to do a bit with the umpires who were pushing us with these new rules coming in of drinking too much water. "It was quite hard for the guys not to drink water for close to 40-45 minutes while batting and on the field as well".

The hosts piled up 649/9 in their first innings before reducing West Indies to 94 for six in 29 overs when stumps were drawn for the day. Two or three partnerships would hold us very well.

"We did talk about being positive in our team meetings". His whirlwind effort in front of his home crowd came after skipper Kohli completed his 24th Test hundred in the morning. Can't imagine my debut like this.

CWI CEO Johnny Grave said:"Through the cricket operations department, the selectors have gone to 25 players to get visas sorted for India". "I was looking to play my natural game, the way I play in first-class cricket, and play the ball on the merit", Shaw said.
