It was a complete dominance from India right from day one, first they amassed a mammoth 649/9 (decl) in the first innings with debutant Prithvi Shaw, skipper Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja registering centuries before bowling out the visitors twice on day three.

India's biggest test victory came against a West Indies side who sorely missed the injured Holder and Roach, who had gone home following a family bereavement, as the hosts went 1-0 up in the two-match series. However, the Windies will be pleased to have one of their more important fast bowlers back in the side for the second Test. I can't obviously discuss our plans in the conference. "I just don't think we didn't trust our defence as much as we should have", he said.

The final XI will be announced by captain Virat Kohli at the toss on Friday.

"This guy is supremely talented and he has got great ability, as everyone saw", Kohli told reporters on Thursday.

It came to an end in the 124th over when Kohli chipped a mishit to mid-on off Sherman Lewis (2-93).
