India Scored 354/6 on Day 2 in 1st Test vs West Indies, Kolkata

Rohit Sharma cracked a century on Test debut to remain unbeaten on 127 and R Ashwin made 92 not out as India finished Day on 354/6, 120 ahead of the West Indies. Click here for Full Scorecard Update.

After the loss of five early wickets, it looked like West Indies, led by Shane Shillingford would run through the lower-order and take a slender lead. But skipper MS Dhoni combined well with Rohit Sharma and put on a 73-run stand for the 6th wicket before throwing it away. The latter made no mistake and continued his good form in recent times. Ashwin gave him excellent company and also took some pressure off Rohit initially in a partnership that is worth 198 runs now. In the process, Rohit Sharma became the 14th Indian batsman to score a Test match hundred on debut and Ashwin is just 8 away from his second hundred in the longest format.

A lead of 120 is already looking very handy on a surface that is helping the bowlers and with these two set so well, it looks like West Indies have to hope for a miracle to comeback into this game tomorrow.
