Mayank Agarwal is also in the squad for the Indian team, and could perhaps get a chance to play in the second Test. Agarwal and Shaw have been prolific with the bat for India A, and the former was all praises for young Prithvi. The innings, however, came to end soon after as he tried to pick up the ante. Kohli did not last long post the lunch break and Jadeja gave the innings further impetus.

India declared their first innings at 649/9 after 149.5 overs on the second day of the first Test at Rajkot Friday. With the ball holding up in the pitch, Kohli wasn't able to time the drive on the up properly and was caught at mid-on after a 230-ball stay. He was unbeaten on 79 when India lost their ninth wicket - Umesh Yadav.

However, there was some early celebration for the Windies when Gabriel struck Rahul in front with the sixth ball of the match with just three runs on the board.

Cristiano Ronaldo rape allegations: Footballer denies 'abominable' sexual assault claims
Mayorga claims she tried to fight Ronaldo off - but he turned her onto her side and sodomized her while she screamed "no, no, no". The Associated Press doesn't typically identify alleged victims of sexual assault, but Drohobyczer said Mayorga gave permission.

Their sorry batting performance came after a forgettable outing with the ball as India piled on the runs.

Fast bowler Mohammed Shami removed both Windies openers, bowling stand-in captain Kraigg Brathwaite and trapping Kieran Powell lbw. Once the spinners were brought into the attack - Bishoo and Roston Chase - Pant brought out some authoritative hitting. This was also Kohli's 17th Test ton as captain, which is the third most Test century by a skipper behind Graeme Smith (25) and Ricky Ponting (19).

Kohli reached his 24th century in his 123rd innings, while Australia's Bradman took just 66 knocks to achieve the same feat. Trying to hit over long-on, he ended up sending a leading edge straight to point. Shaw has scored a century on debut in Ranji and Duleep Trophy tournaments. There wasn't much joy for the visitors apart from the lone wicket as India continued to make merry.
