Virat Kohli wants more water breaks in extreme heat

India in strong position in Rajkot cricket test; debutant Prithvi Shaw hits century

Meanwhile, the visitors have a few days in hand to recover themselves from a massive loss as the second Test take place from October 12 in Hyderabad.

The opener Kieran Powell was the only batsman to make a significant second-innings contribution, with 83 off 93 balls including eight boundaries and four sixes.

West Indies made 181 in its first innings after resuming on 94-6 Saturday and was asked to follow on.

The Windies bowlers are all but done for this Test match thanks to the mammoth 555-run deficit still staring at them.

Kuldeep becomes the seventh bowler to take a five-for in a Test, one-day global and Twenty20 - following compatriot Bhuvneshwar Kumar, New Zealand's Tim Southee, Sri Lanka pair Lasith Malinga and Ajantha Mendis, Pakistan's Umar Gul and Imran Tahir of South Africa.

Nearly all Indian batsmen reaped the benefit of lacklustre West Indies bowling, with three centuries in the first innings, including Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja.

Why Man City want to be more like Liverpool - Pep Guardiola
He is certain, for instance, that, as a defender, he would prefer to face their talismanic forward than City's record goal scorer. Keita's energy, technique and work-rate has meant the Guinean star has fitted straight into the Liverpool side this season .

Ravindra Jadeja roars at Rajkot with maiden Test century
He is also the third batsman after Shikhar Dhawan (85 balls) and Dwayne Smith (93) to hit his debut ton in under 100 balls. West Indies were already one man down at lunch on Day three of the first Test having headed to the break at 33-1.

Brett Kavanaugh wins vote that brings him closer to Supreme Court role
The Senate is expected take an initial vote on Friday morning to begin the process for final voting on Kavanaugh's nomination. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said those issues raised serious doubts about Kavanaugh and his qualifications.

Kuldeep Yadav celebrates his wicket. The absence of captain Jason Holder and pacer Kemar Roach also added to their woes. At the time when they needed to hold the ground, they went for reckless shots that proved costly eventually. Ravichandran Ashwin then took four West Indies wickets as the hosts enforced the follow-on. Lokesh Rahul missed the party as he was sent back for a duck by Gabriel while Ajinkya Rahane put up a good partnership with Kohli in taking India's innings ahead.

The 23-year-old Kuldeep then rattled the West Indies' top and middle order including big wickets of Powell, Sunil Ambris for nought and Roston Chase, who had top-scored for West Indies in the first innings with his gritty 53.

Ashwin ran through the tail on a pitch offering plenty of turns, ending with four for 37 in 11 overs as the West Indies were all out in 48 overs. Umesh Yadav set the West Indian up nicely before getting rid of him with a perfectly placed bouncer as he mistimed a pull to be caught at midwicket.

Ravindra Jadeja, who scored his maiden global century during India's only innings, took the final wicket of Shannon Gabriel for four as the hosts celebrated an utterly dominant win over the former cricketing powerhouse. "And again, with an inexperienced bowling attack, you had to go on the defensive and try to stop them from scoring too quickly", Collymore said.

Kohli also had praise for the debutant Prithvi Shaw, whose 134 earned him the Player-of-the-Match award.
