India thrash West Indies in first test

  • India win by an innings and 92 runs
  • Captain Kohli lauds 'complete performance'
  • Spinner Ashwin takes 7-83 in second innings

West Indies, a lowly eighth in the International Cricket Council test rankings, started the four-test series as big underdogs, but their inability to make a contest of the first test will raise further concerns about the future of the Caribbean team in the five-day format.

"We didn't really bowl well in the first innings. It was a daunting task, trying to chase 560-odd," said West Indies captain Jason Holder.

"We obviously need to bowl a bit better. Shannon (Gabriel) bowled extremely well, Bishoo was decent. We just need to string together some more dot balls, some more pressure deliveries."

The second test starts in Kingston, Jamaica, on Saturday.
