India outclassed the West Indies by an innings and 272 runs in the first Test to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.
The visiting side failed to put up a show against the No.1 Test side as India dominated the entire contest and registered their biggest innings win at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
After putting a massive 649/9 on the board, India rode on its disciplined bowling attack to skittle out West Indies for the second time within two days.
The visiting batsmen had no answer to the Indian bowling as they succumbed and fell for 181 and 196 runs in their first and second innings respectively.Resuming their first innings at 94/6 on Saturday, West Indies were all out after an hour and 10 minutes in the morning session.
Roston Chase (53) and Keemo Paul (47) stitched together a 73-run stand. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin ran through the tail, ending with 4/37 in 11 overs.
Ashwin first removed Chase with a beauty, a flighted ball that turned in to create a big gap between bat and pad before crashing into the stumps.
Number 10 and 11 were easy meat for Aswhin, who sent them back with the away turning ball.
