Bumrah, Ishant blow away Windies after Rahane, Vihari set it up

By The Assam Tribune

NORTH SOUND (ANTIGUA), Aug 26: Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc with a five-wicket haul, complementing Ajinkya Rahane�s long-awaited 10th Test hundred, as India decimated West Indies by 318 runs inside four days to start their World Test Championship campaign in earnest.

India�s pace spearhead finished with incredible figures of 8-4-7-5 while Ishant Sharma maintained his fine form with a 3 for 31 haul. The West Indies were bowled out for 100 in 26.5 overs chasing an improbable target of 419 on Sunday.

This was after Indian vice-captain Rahane (102) got his first Test hundred in two years and added 125 runs for the fifth wicket with the young Hanuma Vihari (93) as India declared their second innings at 343 for 7.

The win took India to the top of the World Test Championship table with 60 points. Sri Lanka are currently second although they have equal number of points. Australia and England are currently third and fourth respectively with 32 points each.

The win was 27th as captain for Virat Kohli, who now jointly tops the list with Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He has also gone past Sourav Ganguly (11) for most away wins as India captain.

It was a Bumrah show in perfect weather conditions as he sent the wickets cart-wheeling thrice during a sensational eight-over spell in which he conceded just seven runs. Playing his 11th Test, he also became the fastest Indian pace bowler to take 50 wickets.
