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

The Windies Cricket Board on Monday had announced the squads for the upcoming ODI and T20I series against India which is scheduled to start soon after the conclusion of on-going Test series from October 21.

West Indies have recalled seasoned batsmen Kieron Pollard and Darren Bravo to the T20 global squad for the three-match rubber against India after explosive opener Chris Gayle "declined selection".

For instance, Kuldeep Yadav picked up five-for in the 1st Test to become the second Indian bowler with a five-wicket haul in each format of the game.

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. He scored 134 runs off 154 balls on day one and was the second-youngest Indian batsman to score a test century after Sachin Tendulkar. Apart from the record-breaking knock by skipper Virat Kohli, the highlight of the match was Prithvi Shaw who registered a century in his debut Test and was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match award. Shifting from his usual style, Kohli was more flexible in adapting to the game, making changes as per the situation demanded.

Chase, who faced 24 balls and struck three fours, also tried to be positive but fell to a soft dismissal when he drove Kuldeep to Ashwin at cover, in the third over following the drinks break. It was a move that gave Yadav confidence, something that will bode well for him going forward into future series.

India star Rohit Sharma is all set to ply his trade for his state team Mumbai in the crucial quarterfinal clash against high-flying Bihar in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. Despite being put full faith in by the selectors and team management in the English series, Rahul failed to impress.

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.

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

Mohammed Shami sent back both openers in a hostile opening spell of fast bowling when West Indies walked out to bat after the tea interval and then India's spinners made further inroads. "I was pleased I managed to get some time out in the middle in the first game".
