Windies failed to make full use of batting conditions on the first day in Hyderabad where they made 295/7 despite India’s debutant Shardul Thakur leaving the field after bowling ten deliveries. India were left with only one pacer in form of Umesh Yadav as a result, they ended up bowling as many as 95 overs. Windies were half down for 113 and were reeling at 182/6 before Roston Chase (98*) and Jason Holder (52) put on a 104-run partnership for the 7th wicket.
All the major stats and numbers that were recorded during the first day of the Hyderabad Test:
3 – Number of century partnerships between Roston Chase and Jason Holder in Test cricket. The Windies pair put on an unbeaten 103 against India in 2016 Kingston Test and 132 against Pakistan in the 2017 Bridgetown Test.
All these three 100-run partnerships between these two have been for the 7th wicket. Thus, they became the first pair in the history of Test cricket with three 100-run partnerships for the 7th wicket.
3 – India now has fielded at least one debutant in their last three Test matches Hanuma Vihari made his debut in The Oval Test while Prithvi Shaw in the first Test in Rajkot. This is only the second instance in more than 15 years for India where they played three consecutive Tests with at least one debutant. Last such streak was during the home series against Australia and the Windies in 2013.
100 – Kuldeep Yadav completed 100 wickets in his International career. He has taken 58 wickets in the ODI format and 24 wickets in T20I cricket. His 3-fer on the first day extended his Test tally to 18 wickets.
Since his International debut, Kagiso Rabada (115) is the only other bowler to take over 100 wickets across all formats.
295/7 – Windies’ total of 295/7 is their highest in eight Test innings in India. In their previous seven Test innings in India, Windies were bowled out for less than 200 on six occasions. They made 234 batting 78 overs in the first innings of the 2013 Kolkata Test which was the highest and longest they batted in their previous seven Test innings in India.
500 – Ravichandran Ashwin completed 500 wickets in first-class cricket with the wicket of Kieron Powell. The off-spinner needed 107 matches and 190 innings to complete this milestone.
2014 – The last instance when three players from Mumbai (Rahane, Prithvi and Shardul) were part of India’s playing XI in a Test match was way back in February 2014. Ajinkya Rahane featured alongside Rohit Sharma and Zaheer Khan in four Test matches in 2013/14 across South Africa and New Zealand.
