Pacers Help India Bowl WI Out for 100, Win 1st Test by 318 Runs
Pacer Jasprit Bumrah returned with figures of 5 for 7 as India bowled West Indies out for 100 to win the Test series opener by 318 runs at Antigua on Sunday, 25 August.
With this win, Virat Kohli equalled MS Dhoni's record of most wins as Indian Test captain. The 30-year-old currently now has 27 wins from 47 matches while his predecessor had 27 wins in 60.
Earlier in the day, Ajinkya Rahane scored his first Test century in two years while Hanuma Vihari (93) missed out on his maiden Test ton by just seven runs as India declared their second innings at 343 for seven to set West Indies a stiff 419-run target.
Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma then blew away the West Indies top-order to leave them gasping at 15 for five at Tea. Miguel Cummins and Kemar Roach put up a tough fight in the end with a 50-run tenth-wicket partnership but had nothing on the Indian pacers.
