Ravindra Jadeja savours reaching his landmark against the West Indies.

It was a maiden Test ton for Jadeja, who had to wait for nearly six years to reach three figures in the five-day format.

However, Cheteshwar Pujara helped Shaw move the innings along past 200 before he was caught behind on 86 to give Sherman Lewis his first Test wicket.

India's batsmen ensured the world's number one side dominated the match after centuries by 18-year-old debutant opener Prithvi Shaw, skipper Virat Kohli and Jadeja.

The visitors trailed by 555 runs at the close, with Roston Chase (27 not out) and Keemo Paul (13 not out) in the middle and showing some fight.

"With all due respect to West Indies Cricket but I have a question for u all...will this west Indies team qualify for Ranji quarters from the plate group?"

Ashwin, who returned figures of 4-37 in West Indies' first innings, had sent back stand-in skipper Kraigg Brathwaite for 10 before lunch and then got Devendra Bishoo at the stroke of tea. He remained unbeaten on 100, after facing 132 balls. Pant was especially merciless, scoring runs at a belligerent rate.

Kohli put together 133 runs for the fifth wicket with overnight partner Rishabh Pant, who made 92, after the right-left batting duo resumed the day on 364/4.

The diminutive right-hander becomes India's second youngest century-maker after Sachin Tendulkar, who in 1990 was 17 years and 112 days when he made 119 not out against in England in Manchester during his ninth Test appearance. Opener Kieran Powell was the only West Indies batsman to make a contribution in the second innings, an entertaining 83 off 93 balls with eight boundaries and four sixes.

Pant played his usual attacking game from ball one, flicking the ball through square leg to get going.
