Smith scored centuries in both the innings of the first Test in Ashes and he managed to score 92 in the second Test. He now averages 63.2 in Test cricket.

India got two wickets in succession as both Shahmar Brooks and Jahmar Hamilton were sent back to the pavilion. Skipper Virat Kohli displayed good fielding skills to run-out Brooks (50) whereas Jadeja had Hamilton (0) caught at second slip to leave Windies at 177/7.

Labuschagne was the highest scorer from the Australian side and was scalped by Ben Stokes. Tailenders too failed to add some runs to the scoreboard as the whole team was bundled out for 179 in 52.1 overs.

All eight matchdays will be held at Edgbaston cricket ground, which played host to a number of memorable matches at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup this summer, including England's semi-final victory over Australia.

India won the toss opt to bat first, and were at the score of 39/1 in eight overs, Rohit Sharma and Kohli are batting at the score of 6 and 28 respectively, at the time of filing this story.

Kohli dismissed these reports at the pre-departure conference ahead of the West Indies series saying, "If I do not like a person or if I am insecure of a person, you will see that on my face or in my behaviour towards that person and that is how simple it is. I have always praised Rohit whenever I have had an opportunity because I believe he is that good. We have had no issues."

The Men in Blue had defeated Windies in the first T20I of the three-match series on Saturday by four wickets. The first match was a low scoring affair as Windies were restricted to just 95/9 in the allotted twenty overs, owing to Navdeep Saini's three-wicket haul. India chased down the target with four wickets in hand and 16 balls to spare.

Smith became the second-fastest to register 24 centuries in the Test format. He had achieved the feat during the first innings of the first Ashes Test. Smith recorded his 24th century in 118th innings, going past Kohli who had achieved the feat in 123 innings.

Along with Nathan Lyon, Smith stitched a 74-run stand, which saw the right-handed Smith bringing up his century. Stuart Broad finally dismissed Smith, giving him a five-wicket haul and ending Australia's innings at 284

He's a proven world-class performer, a fantastic player. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds throughout the series. Last time they came (to the UK in 2015), when the wickets were very good and flat he made it really count and made two very big hundreds (at Lord's and The Oval)
