India vs West Indies 1st Test: Cricket live score

"It's all part and parcel of the game. After the last game, people saw videos online and assumed I'm pacifying Jadeja, but it wasn't like that. I was talking to him about the match, what he did. We didn't have any other discussion. Everyone knows in a team environment, what happens in the dressing room, no one is privy to it outside. We don't have any problem. He always had high respect for Dhoni. After the final also, he said, 'I dedicate this knock to Dhoni.' That is the kind of respect he has for MS." What were Dhoni's first words to him after the final was won? "He said, 'look, the fifth title has been delivered.' It's a big relief," Viswanathan said. "He praised Jadeja for the effort and confidence he showed. It [Ahmedabad] was like a home ground for him [Jadeja]. It was very satisfying. Everyone knows how Dhoni has brought up Jadeja from 2012 at CSK. He has the satisfaction of seeing a home-grown boy deliver the title for CSK."

Rohit Sharma making his Test debut hit a century on second day. India ended the day at 354/6, scoring a lead of 120 runs in the first Test against the West Indies.
