Numbers Behind India's Win in the Caribbean


India lead the 2-match series 1-0

1st Test:

India 297 (Rahane 81, Jadeja 58, Roach 4-66) and 343 for 7 dec. (Rahane 102, Vihari 93, Chase 4-132) beat West Indies 222 (Chase 48, Holder 39, Ishant 5-43) and 100 (Roach 38, Bumrah 5-7, Ishant 3-31) by 318 runs

Records:

* This is India's biggest ever Test win away from home. This is India's fourth biggest victory overall.

*Virat Kohli now holds the record for the most number of wins away from home as an Indian captain. Sourav Ganguly previously held the record for the the most wins at 11.

*Bumrah's figures is the cheapest five-wicket haul by an India bowler in Test history. He is the first India bowler, and in fact the first from Asia, to take a five-wicket haul in each of those four countries. He has remarkably achieved the feat in just his first set of tours.

* Virat Kohli equaled MS Dhoni's record for the most wins by an Indian captain with 27 wins.

* This is his 7th win for Virat Kohli as captain outside Asia. He is only behind Misbah who has 8 wins as an Asian captain outside Asia.
