India began their quest in the Test championship after thumping West Indies by 318 runs in the first match of the series in Antigua. Chasing a mammoth target of 419, West Indies suffered a slump in the batting line up as the hosts were reduced to 50/9and were bundled out for 100. Pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami shared all the ten wickets in the second innings. Bumrah picked a fifer while Sharma removed three batsmen.
Earlier, in the second innings, India dominated the West Indian bowling attack as they put up 343/7 (D). Ajinkya Rahane stamped his authority with the bat on his return in the India colours with a fascinating 102 while Hanuma Vihari missed out on his maiden Test ton. Vihari was dismissed for 93 by Jason Holder. India lead the two-match series 1-0.
