Vastavam web: Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah took five wickets for seven runs as India recorded their biggest ever away victory by runs, thrashing West Indies by 318 runs in the first test in Antigua on Sunday. After setting West Indies an unlikely target of 419 for victory on the fourth day, India bowled out the hosts for 100 in their second innings in North Sound. Bumrah, who took his five wickets in eight overs, rattled through the top order, attacking the stumps relentlessly in a devastating spell.
Bumrah was ably supported by fellow pace bowler Ishant Sharma, who collected 3-31, completing an eight-wicket match haul. Tailender Kemar Roach slogged three sixes in one over off spinner Ravindra Jadeja and top-scored for West Indies with 38. Only a final-wicket partnership of 50 between Roach and Miguel Cummins gave West Indies’ total a slight measure of respectability.
