Teenager Shaw's debut ton puts West Indies on backfoot

Teenager Shaw's debut ton puts West Indies on backfoot

In his column for the Times of India, Ganguly wrote, "It's back to Test match cricket for India on Thursday, this time at home, against the West Indies which is definitely a shadow of the team it used to be".

Star Sports 1, Star Sports Hindi and Star Sports Tamil will provide live television coverage of the match in India.

If India is banking on the "tinge of green", West Indies also has the likes of Shannon Gabriel and Jason Holder, who could certainly prove effective on a tad bouncy surface. He is most likely to face the new ball against West Indies in the company of Prithvi Shaw while the other opening option for the series is Mayank Agarwal.

First day's play of the first Test will start from 9:30 am IST and 5 am BST.

India's Prithvi Shaw celebrates after scoring fifty runs on the first day of the first cricket test against West Indies.

Prithvi, however, has also become the seventh-youngest Test centurion. I have played a lot of cricket since a smaller age. And the spin department is set to be taken care of by the seasoned Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

India vs West Indies Test series is set to begin, later today.

Kohli, who was criticised for sitting out the Asia Cup won by the Rohit Sharma-led India in the United Arab Emirates, said rest in between long tours will be key for keeping players fit ahead of the World Cup in 2019.

Can in-form West Indies test India?

The West Indies come to India after drawing with Sri Lanka 1-1 and beating Bangladesh 2-0 at home. The visitors were jolted by Kemar Roach and Jason Holder's absence and their bowlers had a tough day in the office. The team does not have a very impressive record in recent test matches.

Nonetheless, conditions are going to be different in India and both the batting and the bowling unit needs to adapt and adapt quickly.

Roach is back in Barbados to attend the funeral of his grandmother. If the conditions are pacer friendly, India would want to give Shardul Thakur a Test debut and slot him in the playing XI in place of the third spinner.

He was finally caught and bowled by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo for 134 in the last over before the break.

However, debutant Prithvi Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara steadied the ship thereafter.
