West Indies vs India, 1st Test, Day 1: Ravichandran Ashwin's Five-For Gives India The Honours On Day One

After being axed from the WTC Final playing eleven, Ravichandran Ashwin roared back with a brilliant five-for against a depleted West Indies on day one of the first Test in Dominica on Wednesday. Ashwin justified his top billing in ICC Test bowlers' ranking with figures of 5 for 60 in 24.3 overs to decimate West Indies for a lowly 150 in 64.3 overs with Ravindra Jadeja (3/26 in 14 overs) beautifully complementing him to make life miserable for the home team batters. With more than an hour available for batting skipper Rohit Sharma (30 batting, 65 balls) and debutant Yashasvi Jaiswal (40 batting, 73 balls) added 80 runs for the opening stand to bring down first innings deficit to 70 going into second day.
