India will be happy to tick most of the boxes through the course of the Test for their next overseas tour – the Australia tour. It started with debutant Prithvi Shaw who notched up a sparkling century followed by skipper Kohli’s century. Pujara’s 86 and Pant’s inning of 92 runs showed the formidable form of the Indian batsmen.
More than the result or the margin, India will be happy with some of the boxes they ticked through the course of the Test for their bigger vision- the Australia tour. It started right at the top as debutant Prithvi Shaw began his career with a sparkling century, almost definitely sealing his spot at the top for the tougher challenges. Sure, a century against Windies at home doesn’t guarantee anything about his overseas game, but it’s at least a pointer in the right direction for the immediate term.
Ravindra Jadeja’s form is another positive for India where is breathing fire with his bat. Although he will bowl consistently, his batting must have laced Indian management with confidence ahead of the Australia tour. He scored an unbeaten 100 off 132 balls to register his first-ever international century.
Talking about Windies, their batting order crumbled and none of them were able to show a fight except Roston Chase (53) in the first innings and opener Kieron Powell (83) in the second. Would Windies be able to better their battered situation? The answer would be given on the field.
