If day one was an indication between the gulf between two teams in different halves of global arena, Friday widened the gap in the standard of cricket between India and the West Indies, with the hosts toying with the Caribbeans in all departments.

Even as Devendra Bishoo went back to the dressing room with a four-wicket haul to his name, he'd conceded 217 runs in doing so - the second-most given away by a bowler in a Test innings in India.

India now have a 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series against the Windies.

"India played well and showed us how to bat, especially".

India's previous largest winning margin by an innings was against Test debutants Afghanistan in Bangalore in June, when Virat Kohli's side won by an innings and 262 runs.

West Indies made 181 in its first innings after resuming on 94-6 Saturday and was asked to follow on. "We can see how well the Indians played, they are accustomed to conditions but there's experience and things we can learn from".

The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford's. They noted that other witnesses are "essential for a fair hearing".

Showing a penchant for counter-attack, Chase struck four fours - mostly lofted hits down the ground - in a breezy 38-ball knock while Dowrich was more watchful in his 35-ball innings. With the ball spinning and the inexperienced West Indies side looking clueless, it was a forgone conclusion that the visitors would wilt before the end of the day's play.

Ashwin ran through the tail on a pitch offering plenty of turns, ending with four for 37 in 11 overs as the West Indies were all out in 48 overs. Umesh Yadav set the West Indian up nicely before getting rid of him with a perfectly placed bouncer as he mistimed a pull to be caught at midwicket.

Kuldeep ripped through the tourists' middle order, trapping Shai Hope lbw before dismissing Shimron Hetymer and Sunil Ambris in the same over. "I am learning and I am happy with the way it all came out", Kuldeep said.

Yadav accounted for both Chase and Powell in the space of six overs, achieving his best figures in test cricket since 4-40 against Sri Lanka at Pallekele in 2017. I started off normally in my spell and then realised that they were playing their shots every time I flighted the ball. We are quite disappointed with this loss, we didn't get enough partnerships. One thing we said in our meeting was to be as positive as possible.

India opened the batting on day one and declared at 649-9, with Virat Kohli making 139, and the 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw and Ravindra Jadeja also making centuries.
