India make history with crushing victory against West Indies by an innings and 272 runs

India declared on a record 649-9 after centuries by Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja before reducing the West Indies to 94-6 by stumps on Friday on the second day of the first test. "Sad to see this situation of West Indies cricket. there was a time when people fear playing against them. hope they do get some good players and compete at worldwide level", wrote Harbhajan.

Chase (53) brought up his fifty in the next over with a glorious straight-driven four off Kuldeep but, after being dropped by Rishabh Pant, he was castled by Ashwin, who also bowled Sherman Lewis three balls later. Living on borrowed time, Rahul failed yet again against the West Indies, departing for a duck to become the only Indian batsman to not get a substantial score in the match.

Cricket West Indies already started their selection process and has shortlisted the list of 25 players.

West Indies skipper Jason Holder has lashed out as critics who have questioned his team over their one-sided defeat to India in the first Test in Rajkot last week. "With the CPL finishing last month, there was no reason to delay announcing the T20 squad", he said.

Chase, batting at number six, then attempted to halt the slide in a 25-run, sixth wicket stand with wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich (10) - the best stand of the innings so far. "We believe he can change many games for us and have match-winning contributions with bat and ball".

While Ravichandran Ashwin (4/37) was the pick of the bowlers in the first innings, Kuldeep was all over the opposition batsmen in the second innings on way to a maiden five-wicket haul in Tests.

Overnight batsmen Roston Chase and Keemo Paul collaborated for 73 runs, which was the lone significant partnership in an otherwise timid batting display by their team.

Rohit was in fine form during the recently concluded Asia Cup but is not a part of India's Test squad for the series against Windies.

Kohli also had praise for the debutant Prithvi Shaw, whose 134 earned him the Player-of-the-Match award.

"The team will continue to retain some experienced players who will work alongside the younger group.offer our congratulations to the players making their global debuts and welcome back Darren Bravo and Kieran Pollard to worldwide cricket", he said.

Kohli got to his hundred in his 123rd innings with a boundary off leg-spinner Bishoo.
