West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite tried eight bowlers but success came only to debutant all-rounders Alyque Athanaj (1/24) and Jomel Warrican (1/66). Off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall looked impressive in the first session but a chest infection forced him to return to the dressing room.

The wicket did not fall in the first session

India started the day on 80 runs without losing a wicket. The Indian batsmen did not take any unnecessary risks in the morning session. The team did not lose any wicket during this period but scored only 66 runs. In the second session, however, the Indian batsmen put up a better show scoring 99 runs in 29 overs.

India got the lead without losing a wicket

Due to the slow coming of the pitch, the Indian openers had no problem in defending the batting. Jaiswal, who started the day with a 40, brought up his half-century in the morning session with his first boundary. He collected four runs off a pull shot off fast bowler Alzarri Joseph. The best shot of the morning session came from the bat of Rohit who hit Joseph for a six over mid-wicket. He also made his full toss see the boundary after hitting a square cut four off Warrican. After lunch, the Indian batsmen increased the run rate and also took some risks during this period. Jaiswal gave India the lead in the 58th over with a single off Warrican.

Shubman Gill’s bat failing

This is the first time that India has taken a lead in the first innings without losing any wicket. Jaiswal played freely in the second season. He hit two fours in Jason Holder’s over and also made the balls of Warrican and Joseph visible to the boundary. Rohit preferred to rotate the strike during this period. Jaiswal took India’s score to 200 in the 69th over with a single off Kemar Roach. Jaiswal joined the list of Indian players to score a century on Test debut with a single off debutant Alyque Athanage. Rohit also completed his 10th Test century in 220 balls with a four off Athanaj. However, he returned to the pavilion by catching wicketkeeper Joshua da Silva on the very next ball. Shubman Gill also played Warrican’s ball in the hands of Athanaje at second slip after scoring just six runs.
