India's Strongest XI against Windies for the second Test

With an eye on next year's 50-over World Cup and 2020 World T20 in Australia, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has drafted in three youngsters - opener Chrandrapaul Hemraj, all-rounder Fabian Allen and fast bowler Oshane Thomas - in the limited overs squads.

The tourists were all out for 181 in their first innings and managed only a slight improvement as they scored 196 the second time round.

Kuldeep Yadav snatched five for 57 while fellow left-arm spinner Ravi Jadeja picked up three for 35, with off-spinner Ravi Ashwin, who bowled the new ball, finished with two for 71.

The margin of victory surpassed India's previous record, set when they beat Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs at Bengaluru earlier this year. Harbhajan tweeted this during the capitulation of the visiting side in the first innings.

The match will be best remembered for the emergence of Prithvi Shaw, who announced his arrival in global cricket with a classy hundred on debut, becoming the youngest from the country to do so in Tests.

The second and final test begins in Hyderabad on Friday.
