India make history with crushing victory against West Indies by an innings and 272 runs
Indian cricketer Virat Kohli celebrates his century during the second day of the first cricket test match between India and West Indies in Rajkot, India, Friday, Oct. 5, 2018.
The writing was well and truly on the wall for the beleaguered tourists by that stage, Ravindra Jadeja (3-35) and Ashwin (2-71) mopping up the tail to leave the Windies and outgoing head coach Stuart Law with major work to do before the second Test next week.
If day one was an indication between the gulf between two teams in different halves of worldwide arena, Friday widened the gap in the standard of cricket between India and the West Indies, with the hosts toying with the Caribbeans in all departments. "We believe he can change many games for us and have match-winning contributions with bat and ball".
Chase, who faced 24 balls and struck three fours, also tried to be positive but fell to a soft dismissal when he drove Kuldeep to Ashwin at cover, in the third over following the drinks break. The miscommunication between the two batsmen was what drew the attention here as the West Indies were falling like a pack of cards, not showing any resistance at all in front of the Indian bowling.

Destructive opening batsman Chris Gayle has not been included for the limited overs series against India after he opted out for playing Afghanistan premier league along with off-spinner Sunil Narine who was another exclusion as the selection committed announced the 15-member squad. "I'm sure they'll look into this". On a flat track that offered plenty of runs for the batsmen, the Windies were bundled out for 181 and 196 in the first and second innings respectively thanks to India's trio of spinners. Umesh Yadav set the West Indian up nicely before getting rid of him with a perfectly placed bouncer as he mistimed a pull to be caught at mid wicket.
At lunch, West Indies were 33-1. In between those wickets, Shimron Hetmyer was run out for 10 after a mix-up with Ambris. It became a quick triple blow when Sunil Ambris was stumped for a three-ball duck.
India started with the spin-pace combination of Kuldeep and Mohammad Shami. "Quite disappointed with this loss and we didn't get enough partnerships", said stand-in skipper Kraigg Brathwaite. Scoring a century on the very first day, the very first innings of his career, Prithvi Shaw etched his name in the record books.
