Cornwall, who at 140 kg became the heaviest cricketer to play international cricket, returned one for 69 from his 27 overs.

West Indies all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall is happy that his first Test wicket was Cheteshwar Pujara on Day 1 of the second and final Test here on Friday.

Cornwall, who at 140 kg became the heaviest cricketer to play international cricket, returned one for 69 from his 27 overs.

“Good feeling to get him (Pujara) as my first Test wicket. It was nothing new to me but it was a good feeling,” Cornwall told the media.

“I think the ball came on really nice in the beginning. I have to work hard and put the ball into the right areas,” he said.

Cornwall also took a couple of catches in the slips to remove India openers Mayank Agarwal and K.L. Rahul off skipper Jason Holder. “Our seamers bowled well and when I was asked to bowl, I had to do the same,” he said.

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