Scorecard



It was about going through the motions for India for a while and then accelerating in order to give West Indies a huge target in the 4th innings. However, that could not transpire as Virat Kohli was dismissed by Roston Chase without adding a run to his overnight score.

Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari then consolidated and put their foot on the pedal shortly after. Rahane ended his Test drought by bringing up a ton.

Vihari raced past a half-century but the youngster could not score his first Test century and was dismissed for 93. India declared just as he was dismissed and West Indies were set a daunting total of 418.



As was expected, the pressure of the scoreboard was telling as both West Indian openers were dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah. Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami also picked up three and two wickets respectively.

It was all downhill for West Indies from there on, so much so that they were five down at Tea. The score read 50-9 at one point but it was the 38 run-knock from Kemar Roach that took them to triple figures.

India registered a handsome win, credit to the five-wicket haul from Jasprit Bumrah.
