The spectre of the follow-on loomed large when West Indies, forced onto the back foot once India racked up 649 for nine declared in their first innings, resumed on a precarious 94 for six. Kohli surpassed the legendary duo of Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar, both of whom had scored 24 Test centuries in 125 and 128 innings respectively.

There seems to be no department where Indian team's lacking at the moment.

Ravindra Jadeja, who scored his maiden worldwide century during India's only innings, took the final wicket of Shannon Gabriel for four as the hosts celebrated an utterly dominant win over the former cricketing powerhouse.

Kuldeep becomes the seventh bowler to take a five-for in a Test, one-day global and Twenty20 - following compatriot Bhuvneshwar Kumar, New Zealand's Tim Southee, Sri Lanka pair Lasith Malinga and Ajantha Mendis, Pakistan's Umar Gul and Imran Tahir of South Africa.

Powell added 47 runs for the second wicket with Shai Hope (17) and later another 41 runs with Chase (20) for the fifth wicket.


In terms of batting, debutant Prithvi Shaw shattered some global records by becoming the youngest Indian batsman to score a century on Test debut.

Shaw was named man of the match for his first test hundred. During their 2nd innings, it was Kieron Powell who made a decision to take on the ante as he bashed the Indians for a thundering 83 of 93 deliveries.

The Indian bowler got slammed on social sphere following the tweet. "They played well and showed us how to bat, especially".

After teenage deutant Prithvi Shaw's 134 on the first day, it was Pant who shattered the West Indies' morale further on Friday with a knock of 92 that came off 84 balls.

T20 squad: Carlos Brathwaite (captain), Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis, Obed McCoy, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Andre Russell, Sherfane Rutherford, Oshane Thomas. Naturally, dominating the proceedings right from the word go, India won the opening rubber at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium in a little over two and a half days. Ravichandran Ashwin then took four West Indies wickets as the hosts enforced the follow-on.
