Left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav took 5-57 as the Windies were dismissed for 196 in 50.5 overs, meaning India won by an innings and 272 runs, beating their previous record by 10 runs.

Kuldeep led an inspired spin attack with Jadeja claiming three wickets and Ravichandran Ashwin taking two.

Harbhajan Singh criticized Windies as they lost the first Test of the two-match Test series against India.

Resuming after tea, the match lasted only another 35 balls. Sherman Lewis and Shanon Gabriel looked clueless and gifted their wickets away to the offspinner.

Every test ton matters, just ask India's Ravindra Jadeja.

"We can not compare this with series [defeat] in England". The inexperienced team is struggling against the number one Test side. The West Indies' performance is not for me to speak upon.

India enforced the follow on in the second innings to West Indies and the travelling team once again failed to give a proper challenge.

While No. 8 batsman Keemo Paul's approach was comprehensible, when he went on the offensive against Kuldeep Yadav on Saturday morning, the top-order batsmen should have shown more restraint in their approach. Ashwin picked 2 wickets for 71 runs.

Wicketkeeper Pant smashed 4 sixes and 8 fours as he raced towards a century which would have been the fourth of the Indian innings.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant played brilliantly but both missed his centuries by 14 and 8 runs respectively.

At lunch, West Indies was 33-1.

Opener Kieran Powell was the only batsman to make a significant contribution with 83 off 93 balls, which included eight boundaries and four sixes. "Maybe it was their strategy against the spinners but it clearly didn't work this time", he said. Yadav then took over. It became a quick triple blow when Sunil Ambris was stumped for a three-ball duck.

The victory is also India's biggest in terms of runs in Test cricket. We are quite disappointed with this loss, we didn't get enough partnerships.

"We did talk about being positive in our team meetings".

Shaw, who is seen as the next big thing in Indian cricket, had on Thursday lived up to the hype surrounding his name by becoming the youngest Indian batsman to hit a century in his debut Test match. Can't imagine my debut like this. I just wanted to play my natural game, like I do in first-class cricket, " said Shaw. The second Test begins in Hyderabad on October 12 and it will be followed by five ODIs and three T20Is.
