India cashed in on the weakened attack by scoring quickly and already, the Windies face a long road back into the match, heading into day two today.

Another clinical performance is expected from Virat Kohli & Co, who will take the match as their final preparation before the Australia tour.

After teenage debutant Prithvi Shaw's 134 on the first day, it was Pant who shattered West Indies' morale further on Friday with a knock of 92 that came off 84 balls.

"It can be frustrating at times but as a player you just make sure you're switched on and prepared for whatever is thrown at you", said Chris Woakes. The India vs West Indies ODI series is expected to begin at the conclusion of the two-Test series which is now underway.

Earlier Kohli became the quickest batsman to reach 24 Test centuries since the great Donald Bradman in the morning session. We believe he can change games for us.

"Bravo's issue is that he's playing in an allrounder spot with Andre Russell, Pollard, Carlos Brathwaite, Rovman Powell who all did well in CPL, so there is a lot of options for selectors to choose from".

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

The squad features three spinners - Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja while fast bowlers Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav are also in the final 12 along with Shardul Thakur.

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.

Having been dropped mid-way through the England series on the back of a mediocre outing in the only chance he received in the Tests, Kuldeep couldn't have asked for a better return upon being recalled to the Test team.

Kieran Powell's 83 and Roston Chase's 53 were the only notable contributions from the Caribbean batting line-up in the first game. "Going forward what we need to do is along with the attacking shots, trust in defence".

The West Indies' slide in Test is a combination of both lack of application and technique needed to compete at the highest level.

Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav (5/57) registered his maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket as West Indies succumbed to the guile of India's spin trio who shared the 10 second innings wickets among themselves.
