Jadeja hits debut ton as India declare on record 649-9

Another day that was completed dominated by India as they went on to score almost 650 runs with Virat Kohli and then Ravindra Jadeja score centuries, the former has this habit of doing it regularly, while it was the first occasion for the latter to score a Test century and no better place to do it than at the home ground.

Jadeja came to bat as a genuine all-rounder in this test match. Pant gets another single on the next ball.

India declared their first innings at 649/9 after 149.5 overs on the second day of the first Test at Rajkot Friday.

Asked why he needs to prove himself even after nearly 10 years of worldwide cricket, Jadeja came up with a witty response. En route his milestone, he made and broke a few records - he was the second fastest to reach the 24th mark, in 123 innings after Don Bradman, who needed just 66 innings.

Kohli was on 67 when Pant scored his first run. It was my first Test hundred, so it was very special for me, since it has happened in the past that I got to 80s and 90s and could not score a century.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Pant brought the morning alive with his attacking cricket as he hit eight fours and four sixes during his 84-ball blitz.

Kohli (120 not out) had the company of Ravindra Jadeja (19 not out off 33) when lunch was taken.

Needing a solid performance after being kept in the field for the first two sessions, West Indies experienced a nightmare start when captain Kraigg Brathwaite's (2) off-stump was sent cartwheeling by Mohammed Shami in the third over after the right-hander was late on a defensive jab.

His famous sword celebration followed the hundred with his teammates applauding in the dressing room.

India's Ravichandran Ashwin (centre) celebrates with teammates after dismissing West Indies' Shai Hope. "It was actually the first time I was playing in the series", Jadeja said. When I saw both the batsmen at the same end, I did not think he (Shimron Hetmyer) would give so much of effort, in that heat, he would do that (run towards the non-striker's end).

West Indies ended the day at 94/6 from 29 overs, with Shane Dowrich being the last man to fall.
