Stats: India records biggest innings win ever
Barely a contest, you can say, as India blanked out West Indies to record its biggest Test win ever, at Rajkot, claiming a one-nil lead in the two-match series. After Prithvi Shaw's sparkling start, the trio of spinners made sure that a brittle West Indian batting did not have space to breathe, eventually crumbling to their biggest loss against India.
Here are the important numbers from the day's play:
1 - Kuldeep Yadav becomes the first left-arm leg-spinner to take a five-wicket haul in all three formats. He is also the third spinner, after Imran Tahir and Ajantha Mendis, to pick up a fifer in all three formats.
2 - Virat Kohli is now second on the list of most wins for India as captain in Tests at home:
21 - MS Dhoni
14 - Virat Kohli
13 - Mohammad Azharuddin
6 - Prithvi Shaw became the sixth Indian to receive the Man of the Match award in his debut game.
