India in total control of the Test match after the first day’s play. Rohit and debutant Jaiswal have taken it to a comfortable 80/0 at the end of the day.
Another day, another poor performance from a West Indies team as India took firm control of the first Test in Dominica.
After Captain Kraig Brathwaite won the toss and chose to bat, the home side were bowled out for 150 in 64.3 overs.
The West Indies batsmen were left in a spin as Ravichandran Ashwin took 5-60 and Ravindra Jadeja had figures of 3-26 with only debutant Alick Athanaze able to provide a sizeable contribution to the total of 150.

He also didn’t like Kraigg Brathwaite’s decision to bat first after winning the toss.
“There should be grass on the pitch for any game. I don’t understand why the grass has been removed, and the pitch looks like that,” he said.
Ambrose was also surprised to see the hosts batting first despite getting the coin decision in their favor.
“Kraigg should have bowled first to take advantage of the moisture. The bowlers would have liked to attack the Indian batters,” he added.
India will be looking to pile on the runs on Day 2 and will be hoping it won’t have to bat again in this Test match. Stay Tuned for live updates from Day 2.
