India captain Virat Kohli and Windies' stand in skipper Kraigg Braithwaite.
Slow left-armer Jadeja had Ambris caught at first slip and left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav knocked over Shane Dowrich's stumps to leave the hosts battling to avoid an innings defeat in the first match of the two-Test series.
Fast bowler Mohammed Shami removed both Windies openers, bowling stand-in captain Kraigg Brathwaite and trapping Kieran Powell lbw. The left-handed batsman stuck around with the lower-order to demolish a toothless West Indian attack.
After 37 Tests and 55 innings, Ravindra Jadeja finally scored his maiden Test ton during the Day two of the first Test between India and West Indies at his home ground of Rajkot on Friday. "I have made big hundreds in the domestic circuit, so I thought I can get hundreds in the global level too". However, any hopes of quickly wrapping up the innings were dashed by Jadeja who belted five fours and five sixes in a 132-ball innings, to frustrate the Windies. In the 10 over of the match, when Shimron Hetmyer was on the crease batting for West Indies, Jadeja made a decision to tease the batsman who was in the bid of sneaking a single after Jadeja got the ball.
"I can't think what would have happened if I hadn't hit the stumps, but then I threw it and luckily it hit the stumps".
Hello and welcome to Sportstar's live coverage of Day 1 of the first Test between host India and visitor West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Thursday. He soon reached his 24th Test ton - second-quickest to the landmark behind Sir Don Bradman - helping a Devendra Bishoo half-tracker down to fine leg. Pant, however, missed out on a well-deserved century falling short by just eight runs deceived by a Bishoo wrong'un for 92.
