West Indies lose opening test to India
West Indies collapsed to a humiliating innings and 51 runs defeat to India on Friday to concede the opening Test inside three days at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Trailing by 219 on first innings, West Indies batsmen once again showed little mettle as they were bundled out cheaply for 168. They were undermined by the outstanding debutant seamer Mohammed Shami who finished with five for 47 for a nine-wicket match haul.
Darren Bravo top scored with 37 and Kieran Powell got 36, while Chris Gayle scored a breezy 33 and Shiv Chanderpaul, 31 not out.
India were earlier dismissed for 453 after resuming the day on 354 for six. Rohit Sharma struck 177 while Ravi Ashwin scored 124.
