IND vs WI 1st Test R Ashwin’s magic spin delivery


Dominica (Agency). R Ashwin: Ravichandran Ashwin (49/4) bowled brilliantly as India reduced the West Indies to just 137 for eight at tea on the first day of the first test. Ashwin dismissed four Caribbean batsmen for 49 runs in 21 overs as he touched the 700 wicket mark in international cricket. Ravindra Jadeja took two wickets while Mohammad Siraj and Shardul Thakur took one wicket each. The West Indies opted to bat after winning the toss and avoided the threat of the new ball, batting with discipline in the first 30 minutes. Mohammad Siraj bowled well in his first spell but was unable to pick up a wicket. IND vs WI 1st test

In this way, Craig Brathwaite and Tejnarine Chanderpaul added 31 runs for the first wicket. After the completion of 10 overs of the West Indies innings, Ravichandran Ashwin got the ball and he bowled Chanderpaul in his second over. Ashwin, who sacked Shivnarine Chanderpaul in 2014, also became the first Indian bowler to sack a father-son duo. Ashwin also fired the West Indies Captain Kraigg Brathwaite before the end of his spell. Brathwaite scored 20 runs in 46 balls using three fours. Raymon Reifer, who batted number three, played 18 balls but could only score two runs before being caught by wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan off Shardul Thakur. R Ashwin

The West Indies could only end the first session losing three wickets, but a brilliant catch from Mohammad Siraj brought down the hosts’ fourth wicket. Jermaine Blackwood wanted to send Ravindra Jadeja’s ball over the bowler’s head for a four, but Siraj caught the catch in the air and sent it to the pavilion. After losing Joshua da Silva’s wicket early in the second session, India showed militancy against the fast bowling. Alyque Athanaz, playing his first Test, attacked Ashwin from time to time, while Jason Holder defended superbly. R Ashwin

Holder played 61 balls to score 18 runs, but Siraj pushed through his defense and got him caught by Shardul. Ashwin then took his fourth victim in the form of Alzarri Joseph. Athanaz came close to scoring fifty in his first ever Test, but he too was caught by Shardul trying to play a big shot off Ashwin’s ball. Athanaz scored 47 from 99 balls with six fours and a six as Cornwall returned to tea unbeaten on eight.
