Karun Nair looking to work his way back

Indian bowlers came out and ran through West Indies' top order with Mohammed Shami removing the openers cheaply. He raced to his half-century off 56 deliveries and then picked up his next 42 runs off just 28 balls. Jadeja was in action with the ball as well, picking a wicket of the first ball while Kuldeep was also bagged Dowrich's wicket.

Pant, who made his debut series in England memorable with a hundred, played his usual attacking game from ball one, flicking it nonchalantly through square leg to get going.

Jadeja got a single off West Indies stand-in skipper Kraigg Brathwaite to get his hundred and celebrated with his customary sword dance with his bat.

Cheteshwar Pujara too looked at ease at the other end and was on 74 off 100 balls when the Shaw's century came.

Subsequently, Shaw offered an easy return catch to leggie Devendra Bishoo trying to play against the turn.

In England, he remained unbeaten on 86 as he ran out of partners. Once the spinners were brought into the attack - Bishoo and Roston Chase - Pant brought out some authoritative hitting. He ended up with five boundaries and as many sixes.
