Dedicated to people who backed me through times: Ajinkya Rahane

Ashes 2019 Denly fancies England's chances of Headingley heroics

India vs West Indies, Highlights, 1st Test, Day 4 at ..: Windies bowled out for 100, crumble to 318-run loss

This win is important for India as it not only gave them an unassailable lead in the two-Test series, it also helped them go atop the points table in the World Test Championship.

Not wasting much time in the last session, Bumrah produced another jaffa to dismiss West Indies wicket-keeper batsman Shai Hope (2) in the 12th over.

Roston Chase, Kemar Roach and Miguel Cummins were the only three to reach double digits for the Men in Maroon as the West Indies were skittled out for 100 in just 26.5 overs, handing India a comprehensive 318 run win. "I used to bowl the inswinger earlier, but the more Test matches I've played, I've gotten more confident to bowl the outswinger, especially since England", said Bumrah referring to the series in England past year, which India lost 1-4. Jasprit Bumrah demolished the West Indies batting attack in the second innings of the game when he picked up 5 wickets for just 7 runs.

After Ajinkya Rahane completed his tenth Test hundred and Hanuma Vihari fell seven runs short of his maiden Test century, prompting the declaration, Bumrah and Sharma were utterly devastating.

"Playing with the Dukes ball in England helped me a lot, too".

With the win, Virat Kohli toppled Sourav Ganguly as the captain with most number of overseas wins.

In 2018, Kohli-led India to their first ever series win in Australia as his team defeated the hosts 3-1 to seal a historic win in the Border-Gavaskar series Down Under.

"Bumrah's workload is most important which is why he didn't play any white-ball games (vs WI) after the World Cup".

Speaking at the post-match presentation, Kohli, however, did not say much on his achievement and credited the team for it.

"We really have to stop making excuses and sort this issue out". However, it seems like he would have to wait for his chance, as the second Test commences from August 30 at the Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica.

Three of his dismissals were against left-handers who were all bamboozled by the incoming delivery.

"It can happen very quickly, so that's why you've just got to make sure you shut that scoreboard down, make sure you keep the pressure on, because when you lose one or two wickets all of a sudden the scoreboard can look a lot different if you add two wickets to it".

"It (defeat) definitely doesn't dent my confidence and I think the group should be uplifting themselves", he stressed.
