India - WI 1st day Highlights

The statistical highlights of the 1st day’s play in the first Test between India vs. West Indies on Sunday.

• This was the 86th Test match between India and West Indies, the 41st on Indian soil.

• This was the 12th Test match on Indian soil that started on a Sunday. Out of the 11 previous home Tests that started on a Sunday, India won eight and lost only one, while two were drawn.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav became the 271st and 272nd player to represent India in Test cricket respectively.

• Kraigg Brathwaite (63) became the youngest West Indies player to score a Test fifty on Indian soil at 18 years, 339 days. Carl Hooper held the previous record at 21 years, 12 days.

• Incidentally, Brathwaite is the fourth youngest batsman from any side to score a Test fifty on Indian soil after Pakistan’s Mushtaq Mohammad (17 years, 39 days), Hanif Mohammad (17 years, 302 days) and Shahid Afridi (18 years, 335 days).

• Brathwaite’s stumping made MS Dhoni the most successful Indian wicketkeeper as he went ahead of Syed Kirmani’s tally of 198 dismissals. Dhoni soon completed his double hundred of dismissals by catching Marlon Samuels.

• Dhoni is only the fifth wicketkeeper to effect 200 dismissals both in Tests and ODIs after West Indies’ Jeff Dujon, Australia’s Ian Healy and Adam Gilchrist, and South Africa’s Mark Boucher.

• Shivnarine Chanderpaul (111*) made his 24th Test hundred in his 136th Test. With this he equalled Viv Richards' tally of 24 Test hundreds for West Indies. Now only Brian Lara (34) and Garry Sobers (26) are ahead of Chanderpaul for West Indies.

• The hundred was Chanderpaul’s seventh against India. Only two players have scored more hundreds against India than Chanderpaul – Garry Sobers and Viv Richards (eight each).

• This was Chanderpaul’s second Test hundred in India after the 140 he made at Kolkata in 2002-‘03. Interestingly, these are the only two Test hundreds he has managed in the subcontinent.

• At 37 years, 82 days, Chanderpaul is the second oldest West Indies batsman to score a hundred against India in India. Only Clive Lloyd has scored a hundred at an older age for West Indies on Indian soil.

• At the end of day’s play, Chanderpaul’s tally of runs against India stood at 1,933 runs in 22 Tests (avg 71.59). Only Clive Lloyd (2,344), Javed Miandad (2,228) and Ricky Ponting (2,011) have aggregated more runs in their Test career against India.
