Virat Kohli eclipses Sachin Tendulkar after 24th Test ton

Virat Kohli eclipses Sachin Tendulkar after 24th Test ton

Kohli (139) hit his 24th Test ton - taking him above Virender Sehwag and up to outright fourth on India's all-time list - while Jadeja (100no) struck his first as the hosts built on the debut hundred from teenager Prithvi Shaw on day one and recorded their highest Test score against Windies.

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.

Asked about the difference in conditions between Rajkot and England, where India lost the test series 1-4 last month, Kohli said the two can not be compared. Scoring myself and getting the team to a win on my debut, couldn't have imagined it so I feel good. Virat Kohli kept his excellent from going in Tests and slammed his 24th century against a hapless West Indies bowling line-up.




Jadeja hit exactly 100 not out while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant missed out on three figures with 92, as West Indies bowlers toiled without much success on a chastening day at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. On the other side, the tourists have failed to put up any fight so far in the match and were reeling at 94/6 in their first innings at stumps on the second day in response to a mammoth 649/9. Ravichandran Ashwin, who took 4 wickets in the first innings, ended up with 2 wickets in the second. The bowlers then, led by Mohammed Shami wreaked havoc to reduce the visitors to 94 for 6 at the end of the second day's play. The spinner scalped four wickets in the first innings to help India bundle out the visitors for just 181 runs.

India's mystery chinaman Kuldeep Yadav was the chief destroyer of the tourist's innings. In between those wickets, Shimron Hetmyer was run out for 10 after a mix-up with Ambris. But Kuldeep turned his fortunes around spectacularly in the second innings as he grabbed a stunning five-wicket haul to star in India's emphatic win.

Left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav took 5-57 as the Windies were dismissed for 196 in 50.5 overs, meaning India won by an innings and 272 runs, beating their previous record by 10 runs. The more time you spend out there the better you'll be for it. Shami gave India an ideal start by picking up two West Indies wickets in quick succession in their first essay. "Two or three partnerships would hold us very well", added Brathwaite, who stood in as captain after Jason Holder was ruled out on the morning of the match due to an ankle injury.
