We are quite disappointed with this loss, we didn't get enough partnerships. In the years gone by, that pitch would have turned after the first half an hour.

The Windies bowlers had another laborious day in the field of the second day of the first Test match versus India in the Paytm India vs West Indies, Test Series in Rajkot.

Paul, in only his second Test, proved the aggressor, smashing seven fours and two sixes off just 47 deliveries, after resuming the day on 13.

If day one was an indication between the gulf between two teams in different halves of worldwide 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.

Playing as if they were auditioning for the IPL, the players from the Caribbeans were bowled out for 181 in the second innings, "slogged" their way to 196 in the second, taking just 50.5 overs to fold up.

The margin of victory surpassed India's previous record, set when they beat Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs at Bengaluru earlier this year. Even as the visitors put up an apology of a show, India did manage to collect a few positives for themselves. Apart from the record-breaking knock by skipper Virat Kohli, the highlight of the match was Prithvi Shaw who registered a century in his debut Test and was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match award. Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja scored centuries to help India in posting a big total. Rishabh Pant dropped a couple of catches on Saturday, but his attacking 92 shows India have a potentially explosive batsman in Tests at No. 6.

In response, the West Indies were in all sorts of trouble, first against pacer Mohammad Shami before the spinners cleaned up the middle order. That baffled India captain Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and the bowler Ravichandran Ashwin. You felt for debutant Shermon Lweis when Ashwin unleashed a carrom ball which left the tailender completely bamboozled.

Windies captain Kraigg Brathwaite, standing in for the injured Jason Holder, was removed by Ashwin for 10 before lunch, but fellow opener Kieran Powell provided some resistance by hitting 83 from 93 balls, including eight fours and four sixes.
