Stats: India demolish West Indies to register their biggest innings win ever

India registered their biggest Test win ever as they humiliated Windies by an innings and 272 runs in the first Test at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Saturday, wrapping up one of the most ludicrous mismatches of recent times without breaking a sweat.

After winning the toss, India totally dominated the game, amassing 649 for nine in their first innings before bowling out the visitors twice on Day 3, to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

The Windies were bundled out for 181 in 48 overs before lunch and were expectedly forced to follow-on. They did not fare any better in the second innings, crumbling to 196 all out in 50.5 overs in the post tea session.

While Ravichandran Ashwin (4/37) was the pick of the bowlers in the first innings, Kuldeep Yadav (5/57) was all over the opposition batsmen in the second innings on his way to a maiden five-wicket haul in Tests.
