WI vs IND : Bumrah & Rahane Set Up Easy Win for India


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

West Indies were blown away by Jasprit Bumrah's five-wicket haul, falling to 100 all out in what was effectively under a session's worth of batting as they handed India a 318-run win, their biggest away win by runs. 

In the process, Bumrah became the first bowler from Asia to take five-wicket hauls in Australia, England, South Africa and the West Indies, in only his 11th Test. The win not only gave India 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series but also 60 points in their inaugural World Test Championship match.

Having begun the day 260 ahead, India stretched the lead to 418 on the back of Ajinkya Rahane's 102 and Hanuma Vihari's 93.
