West Indies' reply soon faltered.

Here are the updates from Day 3 of the first Test between India and West Indies.

Kohli (120 not out) had the company of Ravindra Jadeja (19 not out off 33) when lunch was taken. As the last pair in the wicket, Jadeja and Mohammad Shami picked up the singles.

In the first innings, Ashwin first removed Chase with a beauty, a flighted ball that turned in to create a big gap between bat and pad before crashing into the stumps.

Chase, batting at number six, then attempted to halt the slide in a 25-run, sixth-wicket stand with wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich (10) - the best stand of the innings so far.

Kuldeep ripped through the tourists' middle order, trapping Shai Hope lbw before dismissing Shimron Hetymer and Sunil Ambris in the same over.

India had earlier turned the screws on the Windies after resuming the day on 364 for four, with Kohli becoming the second fastest batsman in history to reach 24 Test hundreds, after the iconic Sir Don Bradman.

In the phone call, Netanyahu also said he told Putin that Israel would continue to protect its security and interests. Israel maintains that indiscriminate fire from Syrian forces was to blame for the incident.

"Lovely to see such an attacking knock in your first innings, @prithvishaw!".

A second Test hundred in his fourth Test was for the taking but Pant tried to hit a six and failed to pick the googly to top-edge the ball for a simple catch to Keemo Paul at backward point.

The record belongs to Anil Kumble who took four wickets on 66 occasions in a Test innings.

Kohli, unbeaten overnight on 72, reached his landmark inside the second hour with a boundary to fine leg off Bishoo, and reached the break on 120.

India beat West Indies inside three days to take 1-0 lead in the Test series.

Former England bowler Lucy Pearson, who was head of the school in Manchester that teenager Shaw played for six years ago, was not surprised by his impact on debut.
