IND vs WI Day 1 Overview
In the first session, Jaiswal and Rohit both scored fifty. However, Windies came back in the second with a series of crucial blows as they found the proper notes. After tea, Jadeja joined Kohli. The pair put forth a lot of effort, gained vital fours in between, and knitted together a nice blend at a decent pace.
Neither the pacers nor the spinners had much success on the wicket. Additionally, the Windies bowlers in the opening and closing sessions lacked patience. It was quite an exhausting day for Windies. First and last session was of India and the 2nd was in favor of Windies.
However, the opening session on day 2 would be extremely important as the second new ball is due. Jadeja is still looking rock-solid, and Kohli is only inches away from another international century.
