Cricket News: IND vs WI 1st Test Twitter Reactions – Jaiswal & Ashwin destroy hosts | Reactions to Ashwin 12 wickets & Jaiswal 171

India completed a convincing victory over the West Indies as the hosts lost by an innings and 141 runs. A dominant performance from the visitors represents the perfect start to their ICC World Test Championship 2023-25 campaign as they aim to reach the final for the third-straight time.

Ravichandran Ashwin, on a track with assistance for spinners, asked questions throughout the game. The West Indies batters had no answers to the legendary offspinner. The 36-year old bagged 12 wickets in the game, making it the eighth time he has taken ten wickets in a Test. He now has the joint-most 10-wicket hauls for India in Tests, alongside Anil Kumble.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, on Test debut, won the Player Of The Match award for his stunning 171. From humble beginnings to making history in his first Test knock ever is what dreams are made of. His patience and ability to adjust to a different format is what stood out as India declared on 421/5.

The second Test begins on Thursday 20th July at Port of Spain. Going by the evidence of the first Test, it is difficult to see anything other than a comfortable India victory given the gap between the teams.
