The Mr. Dependent of Indian Cricket Team is none other than Virat Kohli, and he has proved it yet again through his performance in the first Test against the West Indies, which began on July 21, 2016.

By the end of day 1, India managed to score a solid 302 runs for the loss of four wickets; thanks to Kohli's unbeaten 143.

Through this outing, he made his twelfth century and also crossed the 3000 mark.

India commenced the proceedings slowly. In the morning session, they were able to add a paltry 73 runs, and they even lost the wicket of Murli Vijaya. The Carribean bowlers did their best in that period, and the Men in Blue countered it well with perfection.

Bishop was the pick among the lotin the WI side, and he succeeded in finding more turn as the time progressed.

But the batsmen combated his attack well with some sound defense. Sikaar Dhavan looked well prepared, and he scored a fifty with style. Later, he was dismissed at 84 by a magical delivery.

Live Telecast Information:

The contest will be shown live on Star Sports in India. The official website is also telecasting the streaming. In the United States, the encounter can be watched on Willow TV.

There is no chance of rain predicted today. The BBC will air the live commentary.

On the other hand, even after the removal of Rahane, Kohli did not face any difficulties in scoring, and he moved the scoreboard simply like a 50-over International match.

He completed his half-century in just 75 deliveries. After his brilliant hundred, he started showing his full fury and literally shattered the opposition bowlers' morale.

The outfield of the ground was pretty slow, and this troubled all the batsmen except Virat.

If he continues to show this form on the 2nd day too, then things will not be that easy for the hosts.

The pitch may favor the spinners in the coming days, and this will also fall in support of the visitors. The spin bowler grabbed three wickets while the pacer took onewicket. The second day's play will start at 2:00 GMT.
