Rohit Sharma’s hundred on debut has helped India take the lead on Day Two of the first Test against West Indies at Kolkata. Rohit became the 14th Indian batsman to score a ton on debut and coupled with Ravichandran Ashwin’s effort of 92 not out, India recovered after Shane Shillingford's burst snared the top-order. India ended the day on 354 for six and are 120 ahead. At one stage, they were 83 for five and have done well to take a sizeable lead.

West Indies started the proceedings on Day two with Shillingford and Tino Best as India resumed the day on37 for no loss. It was the off-spinner who got them the first breakthrough as Shikhar Dhawan inside-edged one onto his stumps. The ball kept low and Dhawan was on the backfoot, but couldn’t keep it out. Interestingly, Dhawan had almost lobbed a catch back to the bowler off the previous ball.

Shillingford was getting turn. Bowling to the two right-handers, Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara, he turned it into the them and caused quite a few problems. Vijay was lucky as a bat-pad flew past short-leg. But, Shillingford had his man. Vijay’s tactic of charging at him backfired as a doosra castled him and in walkedSachin Tendulkar.
