Kuldeep five-for gives India record Test win against West Indies

Opener Kieran Powell was the only batsman to make a significant contribution with 83 off 93 balls, which included eight boundaries and four sixes.

"India played well and showed us how to bat, especially".

Kuldeep Yadav | The leg spinner got a fifer against West Indies in the second innings.

Resuming on 94-6, West Indies showed some fight as Roston Chase (53) and Keemo Paul (47) continued their seventh-wicket partnership from Friday evening and added 73 runs overall with some attacking batting. Jadeja trapped Sherman Lewis (4) lbw in the 49th over with Ashwin wrapping up proceedings 11 balls later as Shannon Gabriel (4) holed out in the deep. And the decision of sending him back early from the England tour to prepare for the series, proved right as he ran through the Windies line-up to hand India its biggest innings win ever. Indian skipper Virat Kohli along with debutant Prithvi Shaw and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was the three centurions from the Indian team. But as the fielding coach Nic Pothas pointed out after the first day's play, and the bowling coach today, it was a plan they had thought hard about. "Maybe it was their strategy against the spinners but it clearly didn't work this time", he said. Yadav then took over. After he trapped Shai Hope in front for his first wicket, he removed the highly-rated Shimron Hetmyer who went for a wild slog across the line to be caught at the short third man. It became a quick triple blow when Sunil Ambris was stumped for a three-ball duck. "You have to be better at doing that going forward if you have to play Test match cricket better".

In a statement , LSU coach Will Wade asked for prayers and shared the sadness of the LSU family. Sims, 20, was taken to a local hospital where he died. "We are all devastated".

Jadeja and Ashwin struck late in the session to remove Paul (15) and Devendra Bishoo (9) respectively. We are quite disappointed with this loss, we didn't get enough partnerships.

They have won Tests by 10 wickets seven times, while India's greatest winning margin by runs was against South Africa in Delhi in 2015, when they won by 337 runs. One thing we said in our meeting was to be as positive as possible.

After Prithvi Shaw's pehnomenal ton on debut on day one, skipper Kohli (139) and Jadeja (100 not out) made hundreds as India put up a mammoth 649 for nine in their first innings before declaring at tea. After Bhuvneshwar Kumar he is the second Indian to achieve the feat. Scoring myself and getting the team to a win on my debut, couldn't have imagined it so I feel good. "Not sure if Holder will be fit for the next game".

The second and final Test is at Hyderabad from 12-16 October.
