Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

4.37pm So, that’s all from us at ESPNcricinfo. Hope you enjoyed our coverage over the last four days. We’ll see you later this week for the second Test. Till then, on behalf of Varun Shetty and Hemant Brar, this is Sreshth Shah signing off.

4.26pm Time for the presentation. Ian Bishop’s leading the interview.

Virat Kohli: “Jinx excellent in both innings, KL solid in both innings too. Mention to Vihari too. We had to come back in this game 3-4 times, so that is a positive. Moving forward from Australia. Bumrah’s workload is most important which is why he didn’t play any white-ball games after the World Cup. He’ll be a key factor for us as long as the World Test Championship continues. Shami is the same and Ishant is a banker, reliable always. Umesh is there too and Navdeep is waiting in the wings. We are settled as our bowling options, but managing workloads will be important. Vihari got a nod because combination is important. He’s an effective part-time bowler and helps us when we need to catch up with the over-rate. We have a group discussion and then we decide what’s best for the team. There will always be opinions about the XI, but people will know that it’s in the interest of the team. It’s a blessing that I’m in a position where I can contribute to the team in more than one way, but nothing is possible without your team. I don’t think the credit can be taken away from the team at all. I am taking decisions, yes, but execution is done by others who raise their hand. We enjoy everyone’s company, and that’s the reason for our success. Jamaica is another opportunity to do a professional performance. We know WI will come hard at us, and we will try to plug the gaps from this Test.”

Ajinkya Rahane is the Man of the Match for scoring 203 183 runs in the Test.He says, “Feels special. Getting this hundred after 29 or 30 innings. The first innings was crucial after 20 for 3. We needed a partnership, and the partnership between Rahul and me was crucial. Bowlers delivered well after that, but this hundred was special in the second innings. My time with Hampshire really helped me. I dedicate this hundred to the people who backed me, supported me when I was going through a rough patch. I’ve been getting 70s, but getting a 100 means a lot to me. I think first day the wicket was damp. West Indies bowled really well in that session. But it was important to play as many balls as possible without thinking about runs. We wanted to bat 90-100 overs in the first innings knowing runs would come. In the 2nd innings, me and Virat wanted to get a good partnership. We wanted to just bat, bat and bat.”

Jason Holder: “Bowlers did a good effort, but we didn’t bat well. Batting issues to sort, going on for too long. Top order not doing well, leaving much for the middle order to do. Wicket was a good wicket, we should’ve batted better. Ajinkya batted really well, everyone batted around him. It was a difficult wicket to blast players out. I wouldn’t question the team selection. We played the same combination in the last series and we did very well. I think we’ve got to blame our batting performance. We could’ve put up a much better performance. In hindsight you can say a lot of things, but we players need to take more responsibility. Bumrah bowled really well, one of those spells that will dislodge most top-order players. That said, we need to be a lot better as a batting unit. For Jamaica, it’s a place we have found success and our players have done well. Hopefully we can do that.”

4.24pm The presentation should start anytime – stick around. Who is your choice of Man of the Match? Ishant delivered his third-best Test match figures while Rahane earned his first Test ton in over two years. This won’t be easy for the adjudicators. Meanwhile, another stat for you: four of India’s five biggest wins have come under Kohli’s captaincy.

4.14pm This win is India’s fourth-highest Test win and their biggest win in away matches.

Jasprit Bumrah: “I am feeling very good. As a bowling unit, we came with attacking options. Me and Ishant were trying to use the crease too, to generate the swing. A lot of hardwork goes into my delivery. I used to bowl the inswinger earlier, but the more Test matches I’ve played, I’ve gotten more confident to bowl the outswinger, especially since England. I am always trying to evolve. This wicket was sometimes on the flatter side, that time we had to do things differently. It was swinging today, so we bowled this way. There’s a lot of communication among we fast bowlers. We decided to bowl cross-seamed deliveries in the first innings. We have a good camaraderie, we all work hard and we all push each other. I was a little stiff in the first innings since I returned after a break, but things were all sorted by the second innings.”

4.11pm And with that victory, Kohli now has the joint-most number of wins as India captain, tying for 27 wins with MS Dhoni. He has also gone past Saurav Ganguly for most away wins as India captain (12). The Indian team management are now on the field, congratulating their boys. Kohli waves at the small Indian crowd that is there near the staircase. He even stops for a few autographs, which is rare in today’s selfie-laden world.

Garry: “For records, this is my 99th comment and if it doesn’t gets published, I’ll get a chance at century next time. For other records, I feel Kohli and India missed a chance to record lowest runs against India, less than 60 by giving bowling to Jadega and not Bumrah or Ishant. Also I would like to compare India’s record under Kumble vs Shastri.

Tanmay: “@Alan – Kumble is the best for me for the way he led India in that 2008 Australia series. Kohli second for actually winning a series in Australia.”

“Chris: “@CHINMAY RIT whatever you said about Pant applies to Odis and T20s. Saha never looked like getting even half the runs Pant got in Eng-Aus.and Pant keeping has also been pretty good. his so called drops were exaggerated. Saha is too old now and Pant needs to play ahead of him looking at the future of India’s test team. “

Alan: “Stats is quite misleading. Though Virat has surpassed Ganguly’s overseas test wins, we all know the quality of opposition then wasn’t same as today. For me Ganguly remains the best in this format followed by Kumble and Dhoni. “

Iftrar: “From 15 for 5 to 100 all out, it seems an achievement for WI today.”

26.5W Sharma to Roach Pant takes a screamer! India win by 318 runs. This was a short ball on off, and Roach attempted a pull. He sliced the skyer, and Pant sprints towards square leg to complete the dismissal. OUT
KAJ Roach c †Pant b Sharma 38 (31b 1×4 5×6) SR: 122.58

Leslie : “Is bumrah injured. It is so obvious that get Bumrah finish the match. But King Kohli has different plans. @ Guru i agree get Ashwin back in place of mayank. Also Saha in place of Pant otherwise why rake them on tour.”

26.40 Sharma to Roach back of a length, wide outside off. He tries to drag a pull but misses no run
26.36 Sharma to Roach hold that pose, son! Full, on off stump, and he golf-swings this over long on. Team hundred much to the crowd’s delight. Also the 50-run stand for the final wicket, just like Stokes and Leach from some hours ago SIX

Amol J: “Henceforth, today’s date will be known as ‘Last Wicket Partnership’ day in Test Cricket!”

26.20 Sharma to Roach full, outside off, and he swings across the line. Enough connection for the ball to roll down to long on no run

Presly Francis: “Coming close to second 10th wicket 50 partnership of the day……”

26.10 Sharma to Roach attempted yorker, but it’s a full toss. Flicked to cow corner but they opt not to run no run

This tenth-wicket pair has now equally WI’s highest-partnership of the match. This is now worth 44 runs. Ishant returns.

End of Over No.26 Windies 94/9 Last Over (12 runs)

Shalabh Jhalawa: “Kohli, please bring back Bumrahhh and get done with this!”

25.62 Mohammed Shami to Cummins length ball outside off, and he swats this away – past point – for two more. Ishant has to give that a chase 2 runs
25.50 Mohammed Shami to Cummins slower ball, full on off, and the attempted drive is edged! Falls just short of gully no run

Guru: “I would get Ashwin in place of Mayank and ask Vihari to open with Rahul.”

25.40 Mohammed Shami to Cummins back of a length, just outside off, and through to the keeper no run
25.36 Mohammed Shami to Cummins over long on! Full, outside off, and he clears his front foot before swinging through the ball’s line. That’s outta here SIX

CHINMAY RIT: “Sir, I strongly protest ur words, that Pant is not a match Winner, though he has enough talent but most of the time he fails with his immature shot selection. Saha is far better keeper than him, Bcz in test match, “Catch miss toh match miss”.”

25.24 Mohammed Shami to Cummins length ball, on off, and he flat-bats this past midwicket’s right for four more FOUR
25.10 Mohammed Shami to Cummins length ball, on off and Cummins tries to duck. The ball – which stayed very low – hits his helmet and very nearly goes all the way to the fielder at point! They are checking his helmet. On a lighter note, Shami could’ve appealed for an lbw a-la Mcgrath v Sachin no run

Shami to continue.

End of Over No.25 Windies 82/9 Last Over (8 runs)

24.63 Jadeja to Cummins falls just beyond midwicket! Another swing to the leg side from Cummins, and he nearly gives a catch to Kohli 3 runs

24.40 Jadeja to Cummins full, on middle, and blocked back to the bowler no run

Sidharth Monga: and 79 will remain the lowest score against india

24.34 Jadeja to Cummins through Pant’s legs! Full, on off, but the ball stays low. Cummins tries swinging at this, but under-edges it to the third-man fence for four FOUR
24.21 Jadeja to Roach boom! The umpire takes evasive action. Full, just outside off, and flat-batted over the ducking umpire. But doesn’t have the power to beat long-on 1 run
24.10 Jadeja to Roach full, on off stump, and defended no run

End of Over No.24 Windies 74/9 Last Over (maiden)

Zubair: “Cut Jadeja some slack. He made a valuable contribution during the first innings when the chips were down for India. Plus, he is a gun fielder. When India is winning by more than 300 runs, then there is no point in replacing someone like Jadeja without any valid reason.”

23.60 Mohammed Shami to Cummins full outside off, and he tries to drive but misses. Through to Pant no run

Vishal Narine: “Thought I would get a wedding anniversary gift by seeing a Virat 100 but a crushing Indian victory is also good. Vishal n Susie from Guyana”

23.50 Mohammed Shami to Cummins back of a length on middle, and going down the leg side. Cummins ducks anyway, for good measure no run
23.40 Mohammed Shami to Cummins attempts a yorker, but it’s a low full toss instead. Driven to short cover no run
23.30 Mohammed Shami to Cummins full, on off and angling into his pads from around the wicket. He defends carefully towards midwicket no run

shiva: “Remember, jadejas primary role is a bowler and he has been pretty flat in that aspect. I would like ashwin to replace him.”

23.20 Mohammed Shami to Cummins full, outside off stump, and left alone no run
23.10 Mohammed Shami to Cummins back of a length, on leg stump, and Cummins ducks under this delivery no run

22.60 Jadeja to Roach full, just outside off, and through to the keeper no run
22.56 Jadeja to Roach hello there! Some entertainment for the home fans. Full, angling into his pads, and swept off his legs over cow corner! SIX
22.40 Jadeja to Roach length ball, on off, and defended no run

West Indies have gone past 67…

22.30 Jadeja to Roach full, on middle, and defended off the front foot no run
22.26 Jadeja to Roach full and wide outside off stump. Roach connects well once again, flat-batting a maximum over long on SIX
22.16 Jadeja to Roach full, on off stump, and tonked over long off! Clears the front foot, and hammers it for a six SIX

Sanjay Lokhande: “There is only one question should India play Saha in place of pant in 2nd test ….” — Tough call because Saha isn’t a matchwinner with the bat like Pant, but I still think Saha should’ve started. Only because of India’s “unwritten rule” of bringing injured players directly back into the XI. It has always happened in the past 2-3 years except in this Saha case. Remember even Karun Nair – who scored a 300 in the previous Test – could not keep his space in the XI when the injured Rahane returned. Anyway here’s Jadeja

End of Over No.22 Windies 56/9 Last Over (maiden)

21.60 Mohammed Shami to Cummins length ball angling across from middle stump. He shoulders his arms no run

Who will Win ICC World Test Championship, 1st Test: West Indies v India ?

With ten nearly equally matched groups, the importance of every game can’t be understated in this tournament. Both sides are expected to emerge out packaged full-strength against each other in what claims to be a cracker of a competition. Contemplating that the 2 sides on newspaper,India are somewhat more power-packed unit whereas West Indies possess the benefit of being a steady side. For this and another above-mentioned motives, we believe the India are far more likely to emerge victorious in what will be among the most crucial experiences for either side.
