Kuldeep five-for gives India record Test win against West Indies

With temperatures touching almost 40 degrees Celsius on each of the three days of the first Test between India and West Indies in Rajkot, players from both sides were constantly under the supervision of umpires while asking for drinks breaks.

Kohli was seen waving his hands towards the two fans as they tried to click a selfie with their favourite cricketer.

Kohli, who was 72 not out overnight, took time to knock off the 28 runs needed for yet another hundred while his partner Pant, who resumed at 17, went all guns blazing.

His entertaining innings was laced with eight fours and four sixes. That was a bigger challenge, and we knew the quality we have, we would dominate when playing at home again, " India captain Virat Kohli said.

Earlier this year, the BCCI had announced that wives and girlfriends of cricketers will be allowed to stay with their partners for a duration of two weeks while the team is touring overseas.

It was a maiden Test ton for Jadeja, who had to wait for nearly six years to reach three figures in the five-day format.

India captain Virat Kohli on Saturday raised concerns over the new ICC regulations which permit water breaks only at the fall of a wicket or in-between overs, and hoped match officials take into account external factors such as heat.

To date, Mukwege and his staff have helped more than 40,000 survivors of sexual violence, the Mukwege Foundation notes. Mukwege has treated a population that has been victim to rape by militias, government soldiers, and foreign armies.


Ravichandran Ashwin, who took 4 wickets in the first innings, ended up with 2 wickets in the second.

Opener Kieran Powell fought a lonely battle to score 83 runs before becoming Kuldeep's fifth victim in another disappointing batting show by the Caribbean side.

The 23-year-old Kuldeep then rattled the West Indies' top and middle order including big wickets of Powell, Sunil Ambris for nought and Roston Chase, who had top-scored for West Indies in the first innings with his gritty 53.

However, Kuldeep improved on his first innings figures, where he conceded 62 runs in his 10 overs for one wicket. "Some of the other guys might be a bit disappointed but we'll crack on".

When Mohammed Shami got his eighth delivery of the innings to jag back in from a length spot to find enough space between Kraigg Brathwaite's bat and pad, it was evident that there was something severely wrong with the lengths pursued by the Windies' pacers than just the placidity of the pitch.

The board even changed the start date of the domestic ODI competition to October 2018 rather than February 2019 - leaving very little room for the clashing of dates between the Super50 (Windies' domestic ODI tournament) and various T20 leagues.
