Kuldeep leads dominant India to its biggest Test win

Kieron Powell made a counter-attacking 83, which included four sixes, but it counted for little in the end.

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

During the ongoing India vs West Indies Test match at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot, Ravindra Jadeja was involved in a comical moment on the field.

The world's top Test side surpassed their previous biggest win against Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs during the minnows' debut five-day game in June.

Jadeja had to wait till his 38th Test to reach three figures, having made his debut back in December 2012.

With an eye on next year's 50-over World Cup and 2020 World T20 in Australia, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has drafted in three youngsters - opener Chrandrapaul Hemraj, all-rounder Fabian Allen and fast bowler Oshane Thomas - in the limited overs squads.

Kohli's impressive 139 in the opening match against West Indies in Rajkot also saw him surpass Virender Sehwag in the list of Indian century-makers.

The match will be best remembered for the emergence of Prithvi Shaw, who announced his arrival in worldwide cricket with a classy hundred on debut, becoming the youngest from the country to do so in Tests. Brathwaite said he was not sure if Holder, nursing an ankle injury, would be fit for the second test. "I was pleased I managed to get some time out in the middle in the first game".

He trapped Hope lbw and then Shimron Hetmyer (11) was caught flashing at short third man, an unnecessary shot.

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.

Asked to follow on, the tourists did hardly any better in their second innings as Kuldeep, Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin laid bare their spin frailties.

Paul was the aggressor in the partnership but Chase also came up with a few attractive shots.

Ashwin then removed Chase with a beauty, a flighted ball that turned in viciously to create a big gap between bat and pad before crashing into the stumps, leaving the West Indies at 159 for eight. India expectedly enforced the follow-on with less than an hour to go for lunch.

India's batsmen ensured the world's number one side dominated the match after centuries by 18-year-old debutant opener Prithvi Shaw, skipper Virat Kohli and Jadeja. In the first session of the day, Chase stitched a 73-run stand with Keemo Paul (47) after consolidating the innings, but with Ashwin in full flow, the lower order capitulated.
