New Delhi: On day 2 of the India vs West Indies 1st Test, India would look to increase their first innings total to over 500, while Virat Kohli would be eyeing his 24th Test ton.
Day 1 saw Cheteshwar Pujara missing out on his century, but scoring a solid 86 runs.
Prithvi Shaw became the youngest Indian to score a Test century on debut, headlining the home team's march to 364 for four against West Indies.
Shaw reached the milestone off just 99 balls, adding to a host of records he holds in his blossoming career. He had earlier made waves by reaching three figures in his first Ranji Trophy appearance and was the youngest to hit a century on Duleep Trophy debut.
In the process, Shaw also became the second youngest Indian to score a maiden Test ton after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.
Skipper Kohli remained unbeaten at 72 off 13, and his Ajinkya Rahane (41 off 92) took the innings forward with a 105-run stand in the final session.
By the close of the first day, India had reached 364/4.
On Day 2, the match at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot has begun with Kohli at 88 off 159 balls and Rishabh Pant at 35 off 32. All eyes are on Kohli who might score his 24th Test hundred today.
