India recorded their biggest innings victory by thrashing West Indies inside three days of the first Test in Rajkot. "He reached India yesterday and has straightaway gone to Hyderabad rather than coming here for a day and then flying out with the team", Law was quoted as saying by Sportstar.
Ashwin ran through the tail on a pitch offering plenty of turn, ending with four for 37 in 11 overs as the West Indies were all out in 48 overs.
As per reports, the Mumbai team will be led by Shreyas Iyer and confirmed that Rohit Sharma will be playing one or two games for the team. "Our guys understand how to play in these conditions and were clinical". Overnight batsmen Roston Chase and Keemo Paul, who made 47, collaborated for 73 runs in their lone significant partnership in the first innings.
Chase, too, remained positive, moving into the 40s with two leg-side boundaries off Kuldeep before raising his sixth Test half-century with another two boundaries off the same bowler a few overs 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.
Harbhjan later underlined his stand on West Indies cricket while tagging a tweet from Harsha Bhogle.
Ravichandran Ashwin bowled Shai Hope for 10, Jadeja had Sunil Ambris (12) caught at slip in his first over, and Kuldeep Yadav bowled Shane Dowrich (10).
But the most memorable dismissal of them all was that of Shimron Hetmyer, who was run out by Jadeja after he taunted him a bit and threw the ball at the stumps being just three yards or so away.
Powell resorted to aggression in an excellent counter-attacking knock, facing 93 balls and hammering eight fours and four sixes. West Indies were once a formidable force in world cricket but the last decade has seen them pummel to an extremely low level in terms of performances and results alike. "Some of the other guys might be a bit disappointed but we'll crack on".
