IND vs WI 1st Test: India dominates the Dominica. Jaiswal becomes overnight star.

India thrashed West Indies by an innings and 141 runs in the first Test of the two-match series in Dominica.

India declared their first innings on 421 for five, with Yashasvi Jaiswal scoring 171 and Ravichandran Ashwin taking five wickets. West Indies were then bowled out for 150 and 130, with Ashwin taking another seven wickets.

Jaiswal was the star of the show for India, scoring his maiden Test century in just his second Test innings. He was particularly impressive against the short ball, pulling and driving with authority. Ashwin was also in good form, taking his 43rd Test five-wicket haul.

The West Indies batting was once again a major disappointment. They have now lost their last six Tests, and they look a long way from being competitive at the Test level.

Here are some of the key takeaways from the match:

  • Yashasvi Jaiswal is a star in the making. The 20-year-old made a stunning debut for India, scoring 171 in his first Test innings. He is a talented batsman with a lot of potential, and he could be a key player for India in the years to come.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin is still a world-class bowler. The 35-year-old took 13 wickets in the match, and he is showing no signs of slowing down. He is still one of the most effective bowlers in the world, and he will be a key weapon for India in the upcoming Test matches.
  • The West Indies batting is a major concern. The West Indies have now lost their last six Tests, and their batting is the main reason for their struggles. They need to find some form if they want to be competitive in the upcoming Test matches.

Overall, it was a comprehensive victory for India. They were the better team in all departments, and they deserved to win. The West Indies need to make some changes if they want to be competitive in the upcoming Test matches.

The second Test will be played in Barbados from July 27-31.
