Gayle to skip ODI series against India

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. The tourists were all out for 181 in their first innings and managed only a 15-run improvement the second time around. The only estimable knock came from Kieran Powell who scored 83 runs off 93 balls.

Ravindra Jadeja, who scored his maiden worldwide century during India's only innings, took the final wicket of Shannon Gabriel for four as the hosts celebrated an utterly dominant win over the former cricketing powerhouse.

India's comprehensive win, which bettered their victory by an innings and 262 runs over newcomers Afghanistan in Bengaluru earlier this year, put them 1-0 up ahead of the second test in Hyderabad from Friday. "Credit to India, they played well and showed us how to bat", said Brathwaite, who led West Indies in absence of injured regular skipper Jason Holder.

Nearly all Indian batsmen reaped the benefit of lacklustre West Indies bowling, with three centuries in the first innings, including Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja.

Not only them, but also the duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma were overlooked for the two-match Test series against Caribbean side.

"Jaddu (Jadeja) as well - he has got important runs for us before and we wanted him to get three figures".
