Windies Struggling After Day 1 Of First Test Against India

India vs West Indies,Rishabh Pant,Pant Birthday

Performance: How did West Indies perform in the first Test?

That was the only moment of success for the touring side, who face the stiff task of likely having to bat last against India's spin-heavy attack on a pitch already offering some turn.

Kuldeep becomes the seventh bowler to take a five-for in a Test, one-day global and Twenty20 - following compatriot Bhuvneshwar Kumar, New Zealand's Tim Southee, Sri Lanka pair Lasith Malinga and Ajantha Mendis, Pakistan's Umar Gul and Imran Tahir of South Africa. Shifting from his usual style, Kohli was more flexible in adapting to the game, making changes as per the situation demanded.

Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, who once again failed to make his mark in the opening Test, will bat at number five, Test specialist Cheteshwar Puajara at number three and young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh pant will bat at number six.

Jadeja struck an unbeaten 100 off 132 off balls to be the third centurion of the Indian innings as they posted a huge total of 649/9 in the first innings.

The opener has blown hot and cold for too long now. The team management has also put their weight behind KL Rahul, who fell for a duck. "We shouldn't put him in a space where he feels the pressure of any kind and he should be left in a space where he enjoys his cricket and slowly grows into a player we all believe in", Kohli told the media on the eve of the second Test in Hyderabad.

Forbes and the International Monetary Find (IMF) have differed on Nigeria's economic growth in 2018 and projections for 2019. Trade tensions are expected to continue although Fund officials view US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement as a positive sign.

"And history would show we haven't won a Test match here since 1994 and if you look at the players who came through West Indies cricket - I think Brian Lara and these greats have been playing all that time". Ahead of the test series against Australia, their hot form bodes well for India.

"The seamers as well are benefited if the ball is hard, you can get that extra pace but if the ball goes so soft in 10-12 overs, then your effort comes down by 20 percent".

Meanwhile, India will be looking to continue their winning momentum in the second Test.

Coming to India with a depleted squad was always going to e tough for the Caribbean nation but no one suspected them to crumble in the manner they did.

Bravo returns to the West Indies side after a two-year gap for the three Twenty20 Internationals in India.Pollard will also return after a year out to join the Twenty20 team for the three-match series beginning in Kolkata on November 4.
