India captain Virat Kohli celebrates scoring a century by raising his bat and helmet

With an eye on next year's 50-over World Cup and 2020 World T20 in Australia, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has drafted in three youngsters - opener Chrandrapaul Hemraj, all-rounder Fabian Allen and fast bowler Oshane Thomas - in the limited overs squads.

Resuming their first innings on 94 for six at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, West Indies were dismissed for 181, almost three-quarters of an hour before lunch, with Roston Chase converting his overnight 27 into a top score of 53 and tail-ender Keemo Paul hitting an aggressive 47.

Opener Kieran Powell was the only batsman to make a significant contribution with 83 off 93 balls, which included eight boundaries and four sixes.

Kuldeep Yadav bagged 5 wickets in the second innings while Ravindra Jadeja took 3.

India's previous biggest innings victory came in June when it beat test newcomers Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs at Bengaluru within two days. Kuldeep was outstanding in the second innings, Ashwin in the first, Jaddu was consistent as always.

The match will be best remembered for the emergence of Prithvi Shaw, who announced his arrival in global cricket with a classy hundred on debut, becoming the youngest from the country to do so in Tests.

The second and final Test of the series begins next Friday at Hyderabad. The U19 skipper showed no sign of nerves and got off to his natural attacking game from the first ball, with none of the ball touching his pads. The left-arm wrist spinner trapped Shai Hope lbw before dismissing the reckless Shimron Hetmyer and the scoreless Sunil Ambris in the same over to put the tourists on the mat.

India started with a spin-pace combination of Kuldeep and Mohammad Shami.

Kohli added, "Jaddu as well, he's scored important runs for us in the past".

West Indies made 181 in its first innings after resuming on 94-6 Saturday and was asked to follow on.

There was no such divine intervention, however, and when Kraigg Brathwaite turned Ashwin into Prithvi Shaw's waiting hands at short leg with one over to go before lunch, the Windies were sliding again at 32 for one. Debutant Prithvi Shaw became a household name with this match, as he claimed the Man of the Match at debut.
