The tourists were 33 for one at lunch, needing another 436 runs to avoid an innings defeat at the start of the two-match series. Plenty of contenders for the Man of the Match here too.

Day 2 round-up:Team India started day two of the first Test against West Indies in the ascendancy at 364 for 4.

The real challenge for the Virat Kohli-led Indian team lies not in taking on an abysmal West Indies, who lost the first Test at Rajkot by a record margin, but to guard itself against any complacency that tends to creep in during victories at home, which can also lead into any false sense of security.

The left-handed batsman tore apart the West Indian bowling as he brought up his fifty with a huge six off paceman Keemo Paul.

Jadeja had to wait till his 38th Test to reach three figures, having made his debut back in December 2012. "I have made big hundreds in the domestic circuit, so I thought I can get hundreds in the global level too".

Ravindra Jadeja, who scored his maiden worldwide century during India´s only innings, took the final wicket of Shannon Gabriel for four as the hosts celebrated an utterly dominant win over the former cricketing powerhouse.

His whirlwind effort in front of his home crowd came after skipper Kohli completed his 24th Test hundred in the morning.

Looking to smoke the bowler over deep mid-wicket, the left-hander could only manage a leading edge straight into the hands of Paul at backward point which signalled the end of a 133-run association with Kohli.

For the visitors, leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo took four wickets, while fast bowler Sherman Lewis contributed with two wickets. Bradman took just 66 innings to achieve the same feat. Prithvi Shaw, an 18-year-old debutant opener, had scored 134 on Day 1.

Powell certified West Indies' "attack is the best defence' policy by racing to a 93-ball 83 studded with four sixes and eight fours, but the others fell for strokes unwanted, with the second-best score being 20 from Chase".
