  • India's KL Rahul celebrates his century

Hello and welcome to Sportstar's live coverage of Day 1 of the first Test between host India and visitor West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Thursday.

Star Sports 1, Star Sports Hindi and Star Sports Tamil will provide live television coverage of the match in India. Jason Holder had injured his ankle in Dubai itself where West Indies had attended a training session before flying out to India for the two-match Test series. Youngsters like Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal have been given a chance in the Test squad to prove their worth.

The world's No1 Test side suffered from inconsistent form in the top order during their tours of SA and England, losing 1-2 and 1-4 respectively.

Prithvi Shaw made history on Thursday by becoming the youngest Indian to score a Test century on debut.

With the selectors looking ahead, it's up to the likes of Shaw, Agarwal and KL Rahul to seal their spots at the top of the Indian batting order ahead of the much-anticipated tour to Australia.

The others who have played on the Indian soil are Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell and Shannon Gabriel. I have played a lot of cricket since a smaller age. The prospect of a few young and exciting faces also adds more excitement to a series which is otherwise expected to go in favour of the home team. And the spin department is set to be taken care of by the seasoned Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

England Announce Squad To Face Spain
England manager Gareth Southgate believes providing a chance for young players to impress in his squad is the right thing to do.

India, without Kohli, had won the Asia Cup trophy by beating Bangladesh in the final under Rohit Sharma's captaincy. "The West Indies will miss the experience of Kemar Roach who will not be available till the second Test", Ganguly opined.

On the other hand, the Jason Holder-led West Indies side are heading into the Test series on the back of some impressive results at home.

Nonetheless, conditions are going to be different in India and both the batting and the bowling unit needs to adapt and adapt quickly. Pacer Shermon Lewis was handed a debut in Holder's place.

Electing to bat, India were 364 for 4 at stumps.

The two-match series brings a great opportunity for players like KL Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara to have some runs under their belt before the all-important Australia tour.
