"Credit to India, they played well and showed us how to bat", said Brathwaite, who led West Indies in absence of injured regular skipper Jason Holder. The tour has already kick started with the first Test in Rajkot where Windies faced an innings defeat.
Prithvi Shaw, 18, became India's youngest player to score a debut century and his country's second youngest in all Tests after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, notching up a sparkling 134. Windies are having a full tour to India to play two Tests, five ODIs and three T20Is.
Playing in his fourth test, the left-hander, who scored a superb 114 in his previous innings against England at The Oval, fell when he got a leading edge off Bishoo to be caught at point eight runs shy of his century.
Well, he will have a chance to add another feather to his cap when he walks out to bat in the second Test against West Indies.
Cape Town - Batsman Darren Bravo is set to play his first global game in two years after he was recalled to the West Indies T20I squad for the upcoming series in India.
The West Indies bowling, which at best can be compared to a lower rung first-class side in India, could have been taken to the cleaners but the Indian skipper hit only 10 fours in his knock - significantly less than Shaw's 19 boundaries and Cheteshwar Pujara's 14 hits.
Interestingly, Darren Bravo and all-rounder Kieron Pollard will be seen in the shortest format, while all-rounder Andre Russell, who has been ruled out of all 50-over cricket due to injury but has been included in the T20I squad which will take place in the month of November.
If India continues with the three-pronged spin attack, then Kuldeep Yadav is likely to keep his spot in the Indian team, with the other two being presumably occupied by R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.
Shaw wasn't overwhelmed by the occasion as he punished the West Indies bowlers even if they missed their lines and lengths by small margins.
A couple of days before the Rajkot Test got underway at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, the Windies suffered a blow in form of Kemar Roach, who was forced to fly back home after the demise of his grandmother.
Kieran Powell's 83 and Roston Chase's 53 were the only notable contributions from the Caribbean batting line-up in the first game.
West Indies scored 181 and followed on with 196.
