Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja scored centuries while Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant scored fifties as India posted a mammoth 649 for 9.

The world's top Test side surpassed their previous biggest win against Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs during the minnows' debut five-day game in June.

"They are going to come hard at us in this game because it's only a two-match series and you don't have the room to do anything apart from making a comeback at this stage", he said.

For India, the game will be best remembered for the emergence of Prithvi Shaw, who announced his arrival in global cricket with a classy hundred on debut, becoming the youngest from the country to do so in Tests.

West Indies have played one out of the two scheduled Test matches against India, and did not fare well in it.

Similarly, it is possible that along with Rohit Sharma, players that are not part of the Indian Test team will be playing for their respective state teams. Virat Kohli Becomes 1st Indian Batsman to Score 1000 Plus Runs for 3 Successive Years in Tests, Fastest to 24 Centuries Since Don Bradman!

Chris Gayle has made himself unavailable for the Windies' limited-overs tours of India and Bangladesh, but will return to the side for England's trip to the West Indies early next year.

Kohli was out for 139 while Jadeja remained unbeaten on 100, marking the occasion with a leap in the air followed by his trademark bat-swirling celebration.

Ravichandran Ashwin bowled Shai Hope for 10, Jadeja had Sunil Ambris (12) caught at slip in his first over, and Kuldeep Yadav bowled Shane Dowrich (10). There was much hype surrounding the debuting batsman Prithvi Shaw and the Mumbai lad duly justified his selection in the team with a blistering debut century.

"Not the best of starts, credit to India".

Bishoo was the most successful bowler for West Indies with 4-217 and, in worrying signs for their own batsmen, got some balls to turn past the Indians. In a bid to try out some new faces to get their 11 right ahead of the test series in Australia, we expect the Indian side to give a debut to Mayank Aggarwal.

Pierre and McCoy have also been picked based on their CPL performances, while Allen and Hemraj have shown form with West Indies' A and B teams.

Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo claimed four wickets in an otherwise toothless West Indies bowling attack.
