Why pick him in the first place? Here the issue is that he was not given the chance to play the domestic matches and score the runs which the others did.
Agree, selectors should not have picked him for Eng tour itself given that he hasnt scored much before that in recent domestic games. However, it is not that he hasn't got chance to play domestic at all due to eng tour selection, he did play in few domestic games as well as A tours, and hasn't scored. However, to correct one wrong, selectors don't need to do another wrong.

Spot on.  Those lads who have been discarded after the England tour would have killed for the chance to open the batting on a nothing wicket against an attack of barely first class standard.  He is a young lad so plenty of time to work on his game, but right now his limited footwork and chasing the ball way from his body would make him a dream to bowl to with a moving ball
Right, to put things in perspective, Dhawan has scored a century on debut in lesser balls (85)  against a far better attack (Aus). However, we now know Dhawan is only a flat track specialist. On the other hand, Dhawan isn't a failure by any means either - except for Eng/Aus/SA tour tests, he is a wonderful player for tests elsewhere or ODIs anywhere. Shaw is special is a given but whether he is Dhawan/Rohit level or Kohli level is to be seen. I have a feeling he will be the latter but only time will tell.

I like how they waited until playing him at home. Plenty of examples where young talents have been thrown into the deep end and failing. At least here he has his confidence sky high and hopefully will be a long term opener for India. Yes its a woeful attack on a road but you still have to score the runs, K L Rahul couldn't.

Just the 24th test century for Kohli, second fastest to that amount behind the Don. Rant blazed away to 92 then threw it away. Pitch is spinning sharply

KL Rahul's reviews are getting worst than Shane Watson's

Windies missing holder's captaincy. Brathwaite a non regular captain pretty uninspiring field placements even against the new batsmen.

India declared 649-9, Jadeja reached a maiden test century

Windies are already pretty weak, and missing the following who you'd probably/Possibly consider if fit/not greedy:

Gayle, Bravo, Bravo, Narine, Ramdin, Russell, Pollard, Samuels, Holder, Roach, Azzari Joseph, Cummings. And there's probably 1-2 others I've forgotten.

I'd probably bring Lara & Viv Richards out of retirement too!

33-4 on arguably the best batting wicket in India, absolutely embarrassing

5 down inside 17 overs on a road, pathetic from the west indies.

I wouldn't bother enforcing the follow-on, rack some more runs up. Plenty of time in the match left

India's 18 year old boy wonder Prithvi Shaw to debut. I don't understand how they go about their selection policies. Mayank Agarwal the other uncapped opener missed out despite reportedly averaging over 60 over the last two years. Vihari also chopped after one match. Kohli also tried avoiding questions about Nair. Be a man and tell everyone you don't like him.

Kemar Roach misses the first Test following the death of his grandmother

tbh difficult to fit vihari in when picking 5 batsmen, keeper and 5 bowlers?

A loss in England was much anticipated, and then someone made the right decision to choose WI as the next opponent......wise planning or foresight indeed.....

Tests like these are a sure shot way to lead to demise of tests. Unless ICC does something to even out home advantage, tests will soon be extinct. Players like Kohli/Root might keep saying Test cricket is alive, it is his favorite format etc etc, but game runs with viewers, not just the playing xi.  I am sure no one from WI will want to watch these tests given the obvious result.  No one knows what is best way to even out home advantage but at least doing away with toss and let visiting captain decide is a start to bring some competitiveness into the game.  More measures need be evaluated even then to make sure games are competitive.
