West Indies all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall said getting Cheteshwar Pujara out in his debut Test was a good feeling.

The 26-year-old bowled 27 overs, giving away just 69 runs on the opening day of the second Test. The off-spinner struck in only his third over by taking the big wicket of Pujara.

“Good feeling to get him as my first Test wicket. It was nothing new to me but it was a good feeling,” Cornwall said at the press conference.

“It was a good feeling making my debut, the ball came out really nice. It was just a normal day of cricket. I think we have to work hard and put the ball in the right areas,” he added.

Put into bat, India was reduced to 46 for two in the opening session before captain Virat Kohli (76) and opener Mayank Agarwal (55) rebuilt the innings.

West Indies captain Jason Holder picked three wickets while Cornwall bagged one.

Apart from removing Pujara, Cornwall took two catches to get rid of India openers, Agarwal and K L Rahul.

“Our seamers bowled well and when I was asked to bowl,” Cornwall said.

“We thought the pitch had a lot of moisture so we thought once we get the first chance to bowl, we can get the early wickets. The toss went in our favour. It was a good day on the first day of Test cricket,” he added.

At stumps on day one, India was 264 for five with Hanuma Vihari and Rishabh Pant unbeaten on 42 and 27, respectively.
