Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja scored centuries as India put up a total of 649/9 before declaring.

India completely dethroned Windies in the first Test at Rajkot in all the three departments of the game.

West Indies all-rounder Roston Chase said Thursday (Oct 11) the West Indies were looking to come back fighting in the second Test against India after their crushing defeat in Rajkot.

In what can be termed as the most ludicrous of mismatches, the West Indies were absolutely blown away by the number one ranked Test team-a side that had to prove a point or two after returning home with the burden of a 1-4 Test series loss to England. "I have played only four Tests, and for me it is very special to take five wickets against any side", Kuldeep said. Fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, who is on the road back from a stress fracture of the back he suffered late previous year, has been included for the ODIs pending a fitness test. Joseph was included in the Test squad for India too, before being ruled out after two fitness assessments. Earlier, Skipper Virat Kohli made 139 and Ravindra Jadeja also hit his maiden century.

While 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw expectedly hogged the limelight with a smashing ton on debut, Kohli's innings was a master-class of how to set a different challenge for oneself as a batsman.

"There's a decent covering of grass on the pitch and the surface is always hard - if you bowl well you can take wickets and if you bat well you can score runs", he reckoned.

Luis Severino of New York Yankees -- Warm-up routine not rushed
Sanchez, whose batting average didn't top.200 after June 8, also had a solo shot in the second inning to give NY a 2-0 lead. Of the 18 batters Severino faced Monday, seven connected on balls that had exit velocities at 100 miles per hour or faster.

No teeth in the attack, evident from the mountain of runs India piled in the only innings they batted at Rajkot; batting blues that threaten to blow up in the face and an overall downcast morale must be dragging the visitors down even as they put up courageous fronts at pre-match pressers. "They showed us how to bat", a disappointed Brathwaite said after the loss. India trounced West Indies in what was their biggest ever Test victory.

Batsman Evin Lewis, who had turned down a West Indies central contract, was selected in both squads.

There is a chance for Windies batsmen to make something out of the series or Indian spin trio will once again get the triumph, it will be intriguing to see.

Aaron Ramsey's goal that marked "the return of Gunners"
Furthermore, Keown believes Ozil's high wages are the reason why Aaron Ramsey has not agreed a new contract with the Gunners. Substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got in on the action, grabbing two goals in a memorable 30-minute cameo.

Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo claimed four wickets in an otherwise toothless West Indies bowling attack.
