India skittled out the West Indies for just 100 runs to record a massive 318-run victory in the first cricket Test, here on Sunday. India declared their second innings at 343 for seven to set the hosts a stiff 419-run target as Ajinkya Rahane scored 102 runs but Hanuma Vihari (93) missed out on his hundred by seven runs. Jasprit Bumrah (5/7), Ishant Sharma (3/31) and Mohammed Shami (2/13) blew away the hosts batting-line up. Speaking about the award, Ajinkyua Rahane, said, 'Feels really special.
I thought the first innings was very crucial for us. The partnership between me and Rahul was very crucial. Before this, I played county games for Hampshire and that helped me. I dedicate this award to the people who have backed me for the last one and a half to two years. I think first day of the game, the wicket was really damp. We knew if we stay there the runs would come. The plan was to bat, bat and bat.'
