India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 4, Live India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 4 Highlights: India have taken a 1-0 lead in the series with their win in Antigua

India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 4 Highlights: India bowled out West Indies for 100 in the second innings to romp home to a 318-run victory in the 1st Test in Antigua, going 1-0 up in the series. The two teams will now move to Jamaica for the 2nd Test, which will begin on August 30.

India had set Windies a target of 419 on Day 4. India lost Kohli early, but Ajinkya Rahane (102) and Hanuma Vihari (93) batted sensibly thereon and forged a century stand to help India go past the 300 run-mark. Towards the end, both Rahane and Vihari fell in quick succession and that allowed Windies to be chasing a slightly lesser total than what could have been imposed on them.

India vs West Indies, 1st Test, Day 4 Highlights:

02:02 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Rahane is Man of the Match

Rahane is named the Man of the Match. He collects his award from Andy Roberts. "Feels really special to score a century after 29 or 30 innings," he tells Ian Bishop. Goes on to say that his stint with Hampshire helped him. "I want to thank those people who backed me in these last two years or so. I knew I was doing my part for the team, I was getting the 70s and 80s, so yes, I'm glad I got the century here," he adds.

Virat Kohli India's most successful away captain

Most away wins for India captains: 12 - Virat Kohli (26 Tests); 11 - Sourav Ganguly (28 Tests); 6 - MS Dhoni (30 Tests)

Also, this is India's biggest overseas win in terms of margin of runs.

Let's see who is named the Man of the Match. Rahane would be a prime contender. But so would Bumrah, for his spell today. 

01:41 (IST)26 Aug 2019
India win

That's it. Pant takes a running catch and India win. They beat West Indies by 318 runs. This is India's first win in the Test Championship. This will get them 60 points on the table.
West Indies have folded for 100 in the 2nd innings, mainly courtesy that 10th wicket partnership between Roach and Cummins. This is their lowest Test score against India. The previous lowest by West Indies against India was 103.

01:35 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Six for Cummins

Cummins hits Shami for six! Well, that's the kind of cricket we have grown to expect from West Indies over the years. Backs against the wall, big defeat incoming, just taken a blow on the head - all no matter. See ball, hit ball. WI 94/9 after 26 overs

01:33 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Cummins hit on helmet

The Indian players go up to the batsman in concern as the ball hits the helmet of Miguel Cummins. There's a break in play as the West Indies physio comes out to have a look as well. This pair, meanwhile, have added 32 runs in the last 5 overs. We had a big 10th wicket partnership earlier in the Ashes today. West Indies need Cummins and Roach to do much much more. They're making merry here though, as Cummins follows up on that blow to the head by swatting Shami for four down the ground. 

01:29 (IST)26 Aug 2019
That Bumrah spell

Jasprit Bumrah is the first Asian bowler in Test history to take five-wicket hauls in Australia, England, South Africa and West Indies. And he's done it having toured these countries just once in his fledgling 11-Test career. What a bowler! That spell, 8-3-7-5, could well define the rest of this series. It is sure to define the course of this innings and this match. Jadeja, meanwhile, is going for some runs. Not that it will have too much of an effect. WI 79/9 after 24.5 overs

01:22 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Six, six,six from Roach

Kemar Roach has cut such an interesting figure in this whole match. Has showed tremendous spirit. Has just smashed Ravindra Jadeja for two consecutive sixes! Follows it up with a staunch front foot defence. One ball later, he smashes Jadeja on the leg side for the third six of the over. The last ball is blocked out. Excellent stuff! WI move to 74/9.

01:09 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Number nine

Shami gets another. His second. Shannon Gabriel goes for a duck. West Indies nine down. 50/9 their score.
Kemar Roach is given out lbw off Ishant Sharma but he reviews and saves his wicket. Just delaying the inevitable, you get the feeling. 

01:02 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Wicket for Shami

Another wicket! Again, the stumps go flying. Again, it is an Indian pacer who has sent the stumps flying of a West Indies batsman. Roston Chase the batsman to go. West Indies lose their 8th wicket. Shami celebrates by having a banana. WI 50/8 after 19.2 overs

Funnily, there were a few (ironic?) cheers and claps that went around the ground as West Indies brought their 50 up just before this.

00:58 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Bumrah is taken off

Finally, Bumrah is taken off and Shami brought in his place. 8 overs, 3 maidens, 7 runs given away and 5 wickets. That was his opening spell. Beat that, someone! Meanwhile, this is already the highest partnership by West Indies, as Roston Chase and Kemar Roach score a combined 11 runs for the 8th wicket. Yes, that is how tragicomic this 4th innings has been from the home side. WI 48/7 after 18.3 overs

00:41 (IST)26 Aug 2019

Bumrah's pace and swing is too much for Holder to handle. He played for a middle stump line and his off stump is flying. Played it for Bangalore, but it goes down to Mumbai - so to speak. He goes for 8. Bumrah has his fifth wicket, his fourth five-wicket haul in Tests.  Somebody stop him! His figures now 5/7. Roach the new man. West Indies 37/7.

00:32 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Chances aplenty

First, the ball drops inches in front of Vihari. Then it is Vihari who drops a catch. Both chances go begging. Kohli is clapping encouragingly, Ishant is not as charitable in his views of that though. Another wicket is coming though, you sense it. Holder is being made to look like he is seeing a bat for the first time. He is sometimes looking at it in surprise as the ball is swerving dangerously this way and that. WI 29/6 after 13 overs

00:23 (IST)26 Aug 2019

Bumrah strikes again! Wicket number 6! Hope goes for West Indies. Jason Holder comes out with his team in shambles. Bumrah and Ishant are proving their worth as the pace attack of the World No.1 Test team. They are blowing away the Windies lineup like it was a team of schoolboys. WI 27/6 after 11.1 overs

00:18 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Loud appeals

Ishant Sharma gets the Indian players excited with a big inswinger. Was there an edge? They decide against the review though. Replays show the ball had brushed the pad. No bat on that. Good call to not go for the review.

00:10 (IST)26 Aug 2019
Runs for West Indies

Welcome runs for West Indies. Ishant again goes for runs. This time it's four leg byes past the keeper. After that spell of devastation in the afternoon, these will be welcome runs for the home team.

00:03 (IST)26 Aug 2019
And we're back

Looks like India don't want any tea to distract them from their spell of bloodthirst here. We're back for resumption already! Bumrah to resume his over after the break. Chase and Hope, both on 0, the batsmen in the middle for West Indies. Chase hits the first boundary of the session off the next over. That's a good confident start from him.

23:53 (IST)25 Aug 2019
Tea Time!

West Indies have lost half their side as Jasprit Bumrah sends Darren Bravo back into the hut!

23:38 (IST)25 Aug 2019

Ishant Sharma bags the second of his afternoon, as Shimron Hetmyer is caught at the slip by Ajinkya Rahane. West Indies flounders as India continue their bowling dominance. WI are 13/4 after 7 overs.

23:22 (IST)25 Aug 2019

LBW AND GONE! Ishant Sharma claims the wicket of Shamarh Brooks, as the West Indies batsman departs for 2. India are not wasting any time at all, as they have put the hosts in a dire situation. WI are 10/3 after 4.1 overs. 

23:18 (IST)25 Aug 2019

Jasprit Bumrah introduces the sound of timber hitting the Antigua ground to everybody, as he uproots John Campbell from the pitch. What a delivery that was! WI are 10/2 after 3.5 overs.
