Chris Gayle to miss T20I and ODI series against India

The nerves were there but it just didn't show for Prithvi Shaw on debut

West Indies were all out for 181 runs in reply to India's first innings total of 649 for nine declared on day three of the first test at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Saturday. Players like Kieron Pollard and Darren Bravo, who have had some memorable moments in the Indian Premier League, will return to India for the limited overs series.

Kuldeep Yadav snatched five for 57 while fellow left-arm spinner Ravi Jadeja picked up three for 35, with off-spinner Ravi Ashwin, who bowled the new ball, finished with two for 71. The right-hander had to turn to domestic cricket to get some much-needed match timing after a lengthy injury spell. Kohli surpassed the legendary duo of Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar, both of whom had scored 24 Test centuries in 125 and 128 innings respectively. Shifting from his usual style, Kohli was more flexible in adapting to the game, making changes as per the situation demanded.

Like Paul at the start of the day, Powell too went for his strokes and dispatched Ashwin for a straight four and six in the second over of their second innings. It was a move that gave Yadav confidence, something that will bode well for him going forward into future series. "He reached India yesterday and has straightaway gone to Hyderabad rather than coming here for a day and then flying out with the team", Law was quoted as saying by Sportstar.

West Indies have played one out of the two scheduled Test matches against India, and did not fare well in it. Fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, who is on the road back from a stress fracture of the back he suffered late a year ago, has been included for the ODIs pending a fitness test. Joseph was included in the Test squad for India too, before being ruled out after two fitness assessments. "I was pleased I managed to get some time out in the middle in the first game".

On Columbus Day, Donald Trump Praises 'Courage, Willpower, and Ambition'
More and more of the present-day United States is realizing that Columbus isn't the hero that gradeschool texts once told of. Berkeley, California, became the first city to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples' Day in 1992.

Following the impressive performance in the Asia Cup, he was expected to return to the Test side.

Coming to India with a depleted squad was always going to e tough for the Caribbean nation but no one suspected them to crumble in the manner they did.

While India was on song, a largely inexperienced West Indies squad was depleted with the absence of captain Jason Holder and seasoned pacer Kemar Roach.
