The Windies batsmen looked clueless in front of the Indian spin trio and fell apart. Amongst the spinners, Jadeja was the most dangerous as he broke the back of the middle-order. The left-arm spinner not only picked up the wickets, he was also mean with the runs, conceding only 16 runs in the 13 overs he bowled.

India, in reply, lost three wickets in reply. At the end of Day 1, KL Rahul was unbeaten on 30, while Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay scoring 28 and 23 respectively.
