Meanwhile, Indian selectors announced the 14-member India squad for the first two one-day internationals against West Indies.

"We had a long chat after the first test and came up with some plans", the 26-year-old said.

Apart from the record-breaking knock by skipper Virat Kohli, the highlight of the match was Prithvi Shaw who registered a century in his debut Test and was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match award.

Holder has captained West Indies in 26 of his 34 Tests.


Teenage batting sensation Prithvi Shaw's performance in the opening Test against the West Indies has not only earned him a lot of accolades but also drawn parallels with legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, but India skipper Virat Kohli wants the young opener to be left alone. But I am sure it is not as intense as it used to be 10-15 years back when you didn't have any exposure in this kind of cricket and suddenly you were out there in a Test match making your debut for India...

It was also India's best in terms of innings victory.

Interestingly, Darren Bravo and all-rounder Kieron Pollard will be seen in the shortest format, while all-rounder Andre Russell, who has been ruled out of all 50-over cricket due to injury but has been included in the T20I squad which will take place in the month of November.

The only cause of concern for the Indian team management is Rahane, who last scored a hundred against Sri Lanka in August 2017.


Ashwin then removed Chase with a beauty, a flighted ball that turned in viciously to create a big gap between bat and pad before crashing into the stumps, leaving the West Indies at 159 for eight.

Kuldeep led an inspired spin attack with Jadeja claiming three wickets and Ravichandran Ashwin taking two. In a bid to try out some new faces to get their 11 right ahead of the test series in Australia, we expect the Indian side to give a debut to Mayank Aggarwal.

In the second innings, it looked as if the batsmen were in a tearing hurry to hit every ball where the need of the hour was to show patience.

West Indies scored 181 and followed on with 196.


# Devendra Bishoo, the next man on the crease will be looking to provide some valuable support to Royston Chase who is looking good having brought up his half-century, West Indies 157/7 after 42 overs.
