India vs West Indies 2016, 1st Test, Day 1 Highlights
Virat hits Century and remains not out.
The day one of the first test between India and West indies belongs to Virat Kohli, the team India test captain has scored an scintillating century and remains unbeaten on 143* in the first test match as the part of WI vs IND series 2016.
He led the team’s score board with his aggressiveness and master piece batting. He was accompanied by Shikhar Dhawan who scored an good half century. Earlier Kohli won the toss and chosen to bat first. Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan had opened the innings,Vijay and one down batsman Pujara fell down cheaply.Both Virat and Shikhar stopped the tumbling of wickets by playing defense.
The Aggressive Young Captain of Team India scored his 12th hundred and it is the ninth hundred outside India and as India’s Skipper, this is the fifth hundred in the longer form of cricket.
Kohli completed the century In the 68.4 over with a single run, he gets there! Kohli made his 12th hundred in the International Test Cricket. A harmless delivery on the hips by the bowler which was glanced down to the fine leg to complete his century. The stature keeps growing, and the appetite keeps rising, and the plaudits keep enhancing.
The celebrations are nothing like we are accustomed to from Kohli. Just a kiss on the badge and a raise of the arms. Now come on lad, why won’t you run all over the place riding a horse and blowing a gasket. Why deny us, why? Nah, kidding. Welcome change. To be fair, he has been all class ever since taking over captaincy
Bishoo with his half-trackers had bagged the wickets of Pujara and Rahane. Then off spinner Ashwin played a cautious night watchman role towards the end of the day to affirm India’s ascendancy.
Gabriel had given his best performance for West Indies, bowling with a mixture of aggression and consistent pace.
