The visitors crawled to 33 for one at lunch in their second innings, still needing 435 runs to make the hosts bat again in the first match of the two-test series.

The tourists were forced to follow on after posting 181 in reply to India's 649-9 declared - a deficit of 468 runs.

Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav (5/57) registered his maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket as West Indies succumbed to the guile of India's spin trio who shared the 10 second innings wickets among themselves.

Brief score: West Indies 94/6 (Roston Chase 27*, Keemo Paul 13*; Mohammad Shami 2/11) trail India 649/9 (Virat Kohli 139, Prithvi Shaw 134; Devendra Bishoo 4/217) by 555 runs.

Resuming their first innings on 94 for six at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, West Indies were dismissed for 181, almost three-quarters of an hour before lunch, with Roston Chase converting his overnight 27 into a top score of 53 and tail-ender Keemo Paul hitting an aggressive 47. Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Jadeja, and Kuldeep Yadav also chipped in with a wicket each to cap off a flawless day for the Indians at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium. Deciding to bowl Kuldeep Yadav in the second test despite Ashwin running riot is a positive sign in Kohli in the captain. Keeping in view the fitness and form of the players, Team India is keen to reduce their workload. Windies surrendered against a dominated India side within three days by an innings and 272 runs.

However, if both England and India win all their matches in the upcoming series against Sri Lanka and the West Indies, then they will gain a point each to finish on 128 and 123 points respectively, thus retaining a difference of five points. After he trapped Shai Hope (17) in front for his first wicket, he removed the highly-rated Shimron Hetmyer (11) who went for a wild slog across the line to be caught at short third man. "As a batting unit we didn't get any partnerships put together and that cost us".

Brathwaite said he was not sure if Holder will be fit for the next game.

Kohli, who was 72 not out overnight, became the second fastest to get 24 Test hundreds behind only Donald Bradman, who took 66 innings to Kohli's 123.
