Team India continued their dominance over West Indies on the second day of the first Test at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot. After declaring their first innings at 649/9, India reduced the visitors to 94/6 in 29 overs at stumps on Day 2.

The Windies batsmen were all at sea against India’s bowling attack as speedster Mohammad Shami removed the openers and the spin trio of Ashwin, Jadeja and Kuldeep claimed one wicket each.

Commenting on the abysmal performance of the Windies, veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh took to Twitter and wrote: “With all due respect to West Indies Cricket but I have a question for u all...will this west Indies team qualify for Ranji quarters from the plate group? Elite se to nahin hoga”.

While Harbhajan makes a fair point, with West Indies hardly putting up a fight against the No.1 Test side. However, his scathing post didn’t go down too well with fans, including the Indians.

Fans reminded Harbhajan of India’s awful record in SENA countries and slammed him for being disrespectful towards the visiting Windies side.

Here are some tweets:

Resuming their innings from 364/4, India piled on the agony as Virat Kohli (139) and Ravindra Jadeja (100) hit fine centuries to demolish the confidence of visitors. Wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant also scored a swashbuckling 92 off 84 deliveries.
