It seemed the Indian pacers were in a hurry to finish things off as they bundled out the West Indies for a paltry 100 runs in their second innings, setting up a mammoth 318-run victory on the fourth day of the first Test here. Jasprit Bumrah scalped a fifer conceding just seven runs while his teammate Ishant Sharma picked three for 31.
In the process, Bumrah also became the first bowler from Asia to take five-wicket hauls in Australia, England, South Africa and the West Indies, in only his 11th Test. The win not only gave India 1-0 lead in the two-match series but also 60 points in their inaugural World Test Championship match.
It was also India”s fourth-biggest Test win besides being the biggest in away Test.
