  • India's 50 was completed in the 11th over

India take on West Indies in the first of the two-Test series at the Saurashtra International Cricket Stadium in Rajkot from Thursday, October 4.

At the Day 1, Prithvi Shaw hit maiden century.

He became the second youngest Indian to score a maiden hundred after Sachin Tendulkar (17 years, 112 days) in 1990 against England.

The West Indies handed a big setback even before toss with the last-minute withdrawal of captain Jason Holder, looked ordinary at best on the field. He had earlier made waves by reaching three figures in his first Ranji Trophy appearance and was the youngest to hit a century on Duleep Trophy debut. After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too chose to join the run-fest.

James Allison, Tasuku Honjo win Nobel Prize for cancer research
The discoveries led to greatly improved therapies for skin cancer, as well as cancers of the lung, head, neck, kidney and liver. Allison told a news conference he was in a "state of shock" hours after learning from his son that he had won a Nobel prize.

This will be Windies' first Test in India for the first time since 2013, when Sachin Tendulkar had bid farewell from worldwide cricket.

He was finally caught and bowled by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo for 134 in the last over before the break. He is still young and with time will mature as a batsman and as a cricketer so it is important that India give him enough opportunities.

With the selectors looking ahead, it's up to the likes of Shaw, Agarwal and KL Rahul to seal their spots at the top of the Indian batting order ahead of the much-anticipated tour to Australia.

Their lead pacer, Kemar Roach, was already ruled out of the series opener due to a bereavement in the family.

Tom Hardy’s son told him he portrayed Venom wrong
The British-born Hardy has starred in movies including "Inception", "Dunkirk" and " Mad Max: Fury Road". They have some playful banter towards the end of the video as they discuss the scenes that were cut.

He built a solid partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara.

He reached his half-century off 56 deliveries and was unbeaten on 75 off 74 deliveries at lunch as India reached 133 for one, with Pujara on 56.

He reached his 20th half-century in Tests off 100 balls and all told, has so far counted four fours in a 137-ball innings.

Indian vice-captain Rahane though lost his cool against off-spinner Roston Chase to get caught behind in the final few overs of the day.
