The match in Dominica showcased the dominance of the Indian team as Rohit and Jaiswal treated the West Indies bowling attack with authority. Their exceptional batting display resulted in a double-century partnership and put India in a commanding position at the end of Day 2.

The Indian opening pair displayed their prowess as Jaiswal became the 17th Indian opener to score a Test century on debut, while Rohit achieved his second away century. Their partnership of 229 runs not only solidified India’s position but also etched their names in the record books. It surpassed the previous highest opening partnership against West Indies in Tests, which was set by Sehwag and Jaffer in the 2006 Gros Islet Test.

The duo’s remarkable feat also included breaking other records

 They surpassed legendary pairs like Sunil Gavaskar and Chetan Chauhan, as well as Gavaskar and Anshuman Gaikwad, with their impressive stand. Additionally, their partnership marked India’s first 100-run opening stand in 23 Test innings. Furthermore, it was the first time in Test cricket history that India took the lead in their first innings without losing a wicket. Although the partnership was eventually broken when Rohit departed after scoring his 10th Test century, Jaiswal continued to make a significant impact.

The young opener set a new record for the most balls faced by an Indian debutant

Jaiswal’s composed innings showcased his ability to adapt and accelerate, as he swiftly moved from 70 to 100 in just 31 balls. Furthermore, his century made him the first Indian batsman in 21 years to score a hundred on debut outside Asia, following in the footsteps of Virender Sehwag’s feat in Bloemfontein. 

Rohit Sharma’s century away from home was a testament to his skill as an opener. Surpassing the legendary Gavaskar and Sehwag, he notched his 102nd fifty, placing him second on the list of Indian batsmen with the most 50-plus scores, behind the great Sachin Tendulkar.

In summary, Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s exceptional performance in the first Test match created history by breaking a longstanding record held by Virender Sehwag and Wasim Jaffer. Their double-century partnership and individual milestones showcased their talent and solidified India’s dominance in the match against West Indies.
