India vs West Indies Test 2023: The Indian cricket team, starting as expected against the West Indies, looked completely dominating on the first day of the ongoing Test match in Dominica.

India bundled out the West Indies for just 150 and were 80 for no loss at the end of the day’s play. The player who played the most important role in this situation for India was Ravichandran Ashwin.

Ashwin proved that it is not right to make him sit out again and again in overseas conditions. This player dismissed five Caribbean batsmen for 60 runs in 24.3 overs. Even before this match, such a figure was coming out which proved that the West Indies batsmen are going to have problems in front of Ashwin.

None of the top 6 West Indies batsmen average above 35 against off-spin. This is a chronic weakness of West Indies and once again these players are scared in front of this art of spin bowling. If we look at the bowlers who have taken the most five wickets in the Test matches between India and West Indies, then off-spinners are also in it.

In this, off-spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh have taken 5 wickets five times.

When we look at Indian bowlers who have taken the most number of five-wicket hauls on West Indies soil, then Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin have done this feat thrice. Apart from these, fast bowler Ishant Sharma and leg-spinner Anil Kumble also took five wickets thrice.

India’s veteran leg-spinner Subhash Gupte is also included in this list, who has taken five wickets thrice. But it is worth noting that Gupte’s leg-spin bowling was at times a googly which, like off-spin, comes inside the batsmen.

Ashwin has already completed his 700 wickets in international cricket. Talking about the latest match, Ravindra Jadeja took three wickets for 26 runs in 14 overs. Mohammad Siraj and Shardul Thakur also got one wicket each. Jaydev Unadkat was unlucky to bowl well but didn’t get a wicket.

On behalf of the West Indies team, Alyque Athanaj has made a great record. He is playing his first Test match and has emerged as the highest run scorer of his team in his first innings itself. This player played an inning of 47 runs in 99 balls, apart from this no batsman could survive.

The Indian cricket team has landed with the opening pair of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rohit Sharma who are new to Tests. The young batsman lived up to the expectations and scored an unbeaten 40 off 73 balls hitting six fours. Captain Rohit is playing on 30 runs after facing 65 balls.
