India defeats the Windies

NORTH SOUND, Antigua & Barbuda (AFP) – Ravichandran Ashwin completed a magnificent all-round performance with seven wickets to bowl India to a crushing victory by an innings and 92 runs on the fourth day of the first Test against the West Indies in Antigua on Sunday.

His haul of seven for 83 off 25 overs followed his third Test hundred – 113 – in India’s massive first innings total of 566 for eight declared at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

Resuming their second innings following on at the overnight position of 21 for one, the West Indies were dismissed for 231 in another abject batting display, despite half-centuries by Marlon Samuels and Carlos Brathwaite and a ninth-wicket stand of 95 between Brathwaite and Devendra Bishoo (45).

    This is the worst WI team to ever play test cricket, a disgrace to cricket lovers in the Caribbean.

    The worst test captain ever in the history of WI cricket.

    The worst cricket management organization anywhere in the cricketing world.

    An organization that refuses to give the coach the players he deemed to be the best players in the region.

    An organization with warped logic where it considers cutting off your head to get rid of a few gray hairs is an intelligent decision.

      @ Donild Tripe……The WI team is ONE FROM THE BOTTOM in the ICC rankings in test cricket and that was LONG before Holder was made captain or when this first test ended.That should test novices like you that the captains who brought them there were the WORST TEST CAPTAINS IN THE HISTORY OF WI CRICKET
      When your BEST X1 was playing the players
      were the ones who got them there and year after year your best X1 were trying to get above ZIMBABWE and you are telling me that the WI should continue to pick them ??
      Gayle,Sarwan.Chanderpaul,DJBravo,Ramdin,Taylor,Roach,Best,Rampaul,Narine,Benn were the BEST then …and what happened ?
      If you driving and when ever you pass a certain place bare big rocks landing on your wind screen on 2 occasions ,are you going to pass there the third time hoping that nobody en gine pelt at you and when they do….It appears you would pass a
      4th time hoping that they don’t…right DONILD TRIPE ???
      I am not a fan of the Board…BUT..ANYBODY can see that they are trying something NEW and people like you want to see results right away

    What a poor state of cricket in West Indies. Hardly any spectator on the ground to support to West Indies cricket team. The West Indies cricket is effectively run by India since most west Indies players earn money in India, West Indies cricket board’s majority revenue comes from series against India and even the ground advertisement revenue is earned through Indian companies. The only thing West Indies need to do is to bring people to watch the game.
