Kohli calls for end to Shaw-Tendulkar comparisons

India vs West Indies,Rishabh Pant,Pant Birthday India make history with crushing victory against West Indies by an innings and 272 runs

Indians are playing some fearless brand of cricket at the moment and it was so easy for them to finish off the first Test within three days in Rajkot, registering their biggest ever Test victory.

In fact, Virat Kohli's team might not be able to escape a sense of deja vu as it goes into the second Test. Offspinner R Ashwin said he was "pretty disappointed" with it after the Rajkot Test against West Indies, and now Kohli is also suggesting its quality has declined.

Opting to bat first at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, India marched to 364 for four at the close, with the 18-year-old Shaw belting a superb 134 and captain Virtat Kohli ominously poised on an unbeaten 72.

Similarly, it is possible that along with Rohit Sharma, players that are not part of the Indian Test team will be playing for their respective state teams. "I have played only four Tests, and for me it is very special to take five wickets against any side", Kuldeep said. His career has tapered off a bit in the last couple of years.

West Indies will be reinforced with experienced pacers in Kemar Roach and captain Jason Holder. It is also understood that the team management and the selectors are already in discussion as to who should be resting for which series. "I am sure we will learn from our mistakes in the first game and move on smartly in the second game", Chase said on the eve of the second Test.

Shardul Thakur continues to be the 12th man as a 2-0 series win is paramount for the home team at this point of time.

Shaw wasn't overwhelmed by the occasion as he punished the West Indies bowlers even if they missed their lines and lengths by small margins.

At present, it is only England that regularly uses the Dukes ball for Test cricket, with West Indies occasionally trying it out.

Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav registered his maiden five-wicket haul in test cricket as West Indies succumbed to the guile of India's spin trio who shared the 10 second innings wickets among themselves.

The carribean batsmen need to show patience in Hyderabad, unlike the last Test where they seemed to be in a hurry to leave the pitch with unwanted shots. This scenario looks highly unlikely.

Shannon Gabriel, Devendra Bishoo, Roston Chase and debutant Sherman Lewis have all taken a wicket a piece.

Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja scored centuries while Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant scored fifties as India posted a mammoth 649 for 9.
