Team India achieved a resounding victory in the first Test against West Indies, riding on stellar performances by Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma. They secured an innings and 141-run win at Windsor Park, Dominica, on Friday. R Ashwin was the star bowler, claiming seven wickets to dismiss the hosts for just 130 runs in their second innings. Team India had declared their first innings at 421/5, thanks to impressive batting displays by Yashasvi Jaiswal (171), Rohit Sharma (103), and Virat Kohli, who contributed 76 runs.
In the initial stages of the match, West Indies won the toss and chose to bat, but they struggled, managing only 150 runs in their first innings. R Ashwin was the chief tormentor with a five-wicket haul. West Indies lacked substantial partnerships among their batsmen, leading to their downfall. The second and final Test between these two teams is scheduled to take place from July 20th at Queen’s Park Oval.
