IND v WI 2018: Twitter explodes after clinical Indian team beats Windies by an innings and 272 runs

Shaw, Kohli and Jadeja hit centuries, while Ashwin and Kuldeep shined with the ball.

Kuldeep Yadav became the second Indian bowler to take a fifer in all the three formats | AFPTeam India started the two-match Test series against the visiting West Indies with a crushing innings win at Rajkot. The Indian spinners combined with centuries from Virat Kohli, Prithvi Shaw and Ravindra Jadeja left Windies with no scope of any comeback.

After piling up a mammoth 649/9d thanks to a debut 134 by Shaw, 139 by captain Kohli and a maiden 100* from Jadeja, Team India began to pile on the misery on West Indies batsmen. Ashwin took 4/37 in the Windies first innings, as only Roston Chase managed a score of substance with 53, as the team crumbled for 181.

India got a lead of 468 and Windies was asked to follow-on and their batsmen went for glory over guts and decided to take on the Indian spinners and failed miserably. Kuldeep Yadav took his maiden fifer (5/57) in Test cricket, while Ashwin and Jadeja played supporting roles.

India dismissed West Indies for 196 and won the match by an innings and 272 runs

Twitter was following the exploits of the Indian team against West Indies and praised the home team for their win via tweets.

Here are some of the tweets:
