6 - Prithvi is only the 6th Indian to win a Man of the Match award on his Test debut. The Windies were bundled out for 181 and 196 inside three days, after India declared their first innings at 649/9, to suffer a humiliating an innings and 272 runs defeat, their second worst in the longest-format of the game.
"Delighted for Prithvi and Jaddu". After a disappointing Test series loss in England, the Indian team bounced back in style against a lowly-ranked Windies side in the first Test in Rajkot.
"Jaddu as well - he has got important runs for us before and we wanted him to get three figures". But like Umesh, he two was under-bowled by skipper Kohli and was given just 12 overs in the entire match.
Jadeja, playing his 38th five-day game, hit five fours and five sixes during his 132-ball stay.
Kohli also credited the pace duo of Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav for putting the opposition under pressure. Then, he picked a wicket off the first ball that he bowled in the first Windies innings and also effected a run-out. With wickets tumbling rather alarmingly, Ambris made a decision to take Ashwin and slammed him for two fours - one over extra cover and the other over deep midwicket.
"It was a bit to do with the umpires pushing us as well". "It was quite hard for the guys not to drink water for close to 40-45 minutes while batting and on the field as well". The guys struggled a bit because of that, it was hard for guys to bat 45 minutes without water.Читайте также: Two Republican senators, two divergent paths on Kavanaugh
Shaw's hundred is a massive one for India in two respects - one, it breaks the kind of monopoly that the Vijay-Dhawan pair enjoyed and two, it shows that India can benefit from moving on from tried and tested options.
"That was a bigger challenge". "These things should be considered according to the conditions we play in". "We were very clinical", Kohli said.
"It was a great win".
Like Rahul, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane too will be kicking himself for wasting a good opportunity to get a big score under his belt. Whenever you play global cricket, there is always a challenge. "I was pleased I managed to get some time out in the middle in the first game".
Left with the final session to navigate, West Indies made a mess of their reply, crashing to 94 for six at the close, as seamer Mohammed Shami (2-11) made key strikes to put in train the visitors' demise. He put on a 206-run partnership with Shaw and kept talking to the youngster while they were batting together.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
