India vs West Indies 1st Test Dominant India Push Windies Into A Corner On Day 2 At Stumps

Kuldeep also became the first Indian Chinaman bowler to claim a five-wicket haul and the second Asian after Sri Lanka's Lakshan Sandakan.

India beat West Indies on Saturday by an innings and 272 runs and speaking at the post match presentation the Indian skipper hoped that match officials will take into account external factors such as heat while taking calls on unscheduled drinks intervals in Tests.

Once India had piled up 649 for nine declared in their first innings on Friday, the game became one of survival for the Windies but they lacked the resolve to push the contest into a fourth day, as the gulf between the two sides was cruelly exposed. Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja scored centuries to help India in posting a big total.

It was a dream debut for young opener Prithvi Shaw, who slammed a scintillating century in his first innings in worldwide cricket and broke multiple record in the process.

Their previous biggest was by an innings and 262 runs in the one-off Test match against Afghanistan.

Shaw, who is already being compared to Sachin Tendulkar, was adjudged the man of the match for his 154-ball stay laced with 19 fours. Skipper Virat Kohli also hit a landmark ton, top-scoring with 139. Playing his first game, seeing him dominate - the guy (Shaw) showed he is different quality. "That´s why he´s been pushed to the Test team", Kohli said after the win.

"Jaddu as well - he has got important runs for us before and we wanted him to get three figures".

WICKET! Another one departs, Ashwin gets Bishoo now, who looks to go for the sweep but gets a glove on that one and through to the keeper.

In the West Indies' reply, Kraigg Brathwaite (two) and Kieran Powell (one) fell to Mohammed Shami in the first five overs before India's spinners took over.

India's attack continued to pick up regular cheap wickets, before Roston Chase's unbeaten 27 and Keemo Paul (13 not out) offered some kind of late resistance as West Indies finished on 94 for six at the close, still some 555 runs behind.

Only one player - Australia legend Don Bradman - can boast a better record than Kohli as he reached his 24th ton in just 66 innings. He put on a 206-run partnership with Shaw and kept talking to the youngster while they were batting together. It has been a good last 30 days for the southpaw, who scored a gritty 86 in the final Test in England before making an ODI comeback with the Asia Cup in Dubai.
