With Pant picking boundaries at will, Kohli was in no hurry get to the hundred and when he did get there, the India skipper became the second fastest to 24 Test hundreds behind only Donald Bradman, who took 66 innings to Kohli's 123. Prithvi also got the opportunity to bat with his skipper Virat Kohli in his very first match. With the ball holding up in the pitch, Kohli wasn't able to time the drive on the up properly and was caught at mid-on after a 230-ball stay.

The tourists, wearied by spending nearly 150 overs in the field, then crumbled, with Mohammed Shami (2-11) ousting openers Kraigg Brathwaite (2) and Kieran Powell (1) and Jadeja seizing a wicket and a run out as Windies closed 555 runs behind with only four wickets intact. He was unbeaten on 79 when India lost their ninth wicket - Umesh Yadav.

Their sorry batting performance came after a forgettable outing with the ball as India piled on the runs. He got to his ton with a quick single to mid-off off Kraigg Brathwaite as his next fifty runs after reaching a half-century off 87 balls, came in just 45 deliveries.

When asked once what was the naughtiest thing she had ever done, May admitted to running through fields of wheat as a child. Michael Edwards from Hastings, a Tory member for 40 years, said Johnson gave an "inspiring speech".

But at 337 in 84 overs, Roston Chase dismissed Rahane.

Kohli called his side in a ball after Jadeja completed his maiden Test ton against a Windies attack missing Kemar Roach due to a family bereavement and captain Jason Holder through an ankle injury. Pant, too, looked set for his second consecutive Test ton but fell to Bishoo just eight short.

Resuming on 72 not out, Kohli calmly reached his century off 184 balls, moving above Virender Sehwag (23) to fourth place in the list of most Test hundreds for India and putting him behind only Sunil Gavaskar (34), Rahul Dravid (36) and Sachin Tendulkar (51). He made the most of it with a fluent 86 not out and seven wickets from two innings. To make matters worse, Bishoo failed to hold on to a return catch with Kohli on 114.
