Windies Struggling After Day 1 Of First Test Against India

India recorded their biggest innings victory by thrashing West Indies inside three days of the first Test in Rajkot.

A boost in the second Test for the West Indies will likely come from the return of fast bowler Kemar Roach after he missed the first Test to return home for a funeral. "The team will be led by Shreyas Iyer, who captained Mumbai in their last two games in the league stage", Agarkar was quoted as saying by The Times of India.

Another century in the second match against the West Indies which begins on Friday in Hyderabad would see Shaw join a small group of greats including Mohammad Azharuddin, Sourav Ganguly and Rohit Sharma who all hit tons in their first two Tests.

Shaw has long since been billed as a future star and the 18-year-old lived up to the hype with a magnificent 134 on his first Test innings as India thrashed the tourists by an innings and 272 runs in Rajkot last week.

IPCC calls for far-reaching changes to fight global warming
The likelihood of an Arctic Ocean free of sea ice in summer would be once per century, instead of at least once per decade. The scientists claim increased temperatures are leading to rising sea levels and other changes to the environment.

Kuldeep thrived on that, mixing it up nicely to fox the batsmen.

Wickets tumbled at a steady rate, Jadeja continuing his fine day with a run out of Shimron Hetmyer (10) before accounting for Sunil Ambris (12). Surprisingly, Chase and Paul had little difficulty in picking the chinaman, who bowled the first over the day.

# Devendra Bishoo, the next man on the crease will be looking to provide some valuable support to Royston Chase who is looking good having brought up his half-century, West Indies 157/7 after 42 overs.

No teeth in the attack, evident from the mountain of runs India piled in the only innings they batted at Rajkot; batting blues that threaten to blow up in the face and an overall downcast morale must be dragging the visitors down even as they put up fearless fronts at pre-match pressers.

Rice also said her family "goes back generations" in ME and that she's owned a home in the state for the last 20 years. Ho said she plans to collect signatures on the letter this week and submit the nomination October 14.

For West Indies, the aim will to at least put up some fight, unlike the Rajkot game where they didn't even last 100 overs across both innings.

He raced into the 90s with another pulled boundary off the ineffective Bishoo before raising three figures off just 99 balls almost three-quarters of an hour after the interval, punching Paul to cover for a couple.

Paul, who made 47, swept Kuldeep Yadav for a couple of boundaries but was surprised by a Umesh Yadav bouncer that he could only pull to Cheteshwar Pujara at midwicket.

India expectedly enforced the follow-on with less than an hour to go for lunch.
