Bravo recalled to Windies squad after 2-year absence

Bravo recalled to Windies squad after 2-year absence”

Cricket West Indies (CWI) have announced a 15-man squad for the five-match ODI series against India that includes three new faces in form of opener Chandrapaul Hemraj, fast bowler Oshane Thomas and allrounder Fabian Allen.

Roston Chase (53) and Keemo Paul (47) offered some resistance with the bat but they still ended 468 runs behind, prompting India to enforce follow-on.

Kuldeep led an inspired spin attack with Jadeja claiming three wickets and Ravichandran Ashwin taking two. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time. The spectre of the follow-on loomed large when West Indies resumed day three on a precarious 94 for six.

Kuldeep becomes the seventh bowler to take a five-for in a Test, one-day worldwide and Twenty20 - following compatriot Bhuvneshwar Kumar, New Zealand's Tim Southee, Sri Lanka pair Lasith Malinga and Ajantha Mendis, Pakistan's Umar Gul and Imran Tahir of South Africa.

India have crushed West Indies by an innings and 272 runs for their biggest margin of victory in test cricket.

Needing a solid performance after being kept in the field for the first two sessions, West Indies experienced a nightmare start when captain Kraigg- Brathwaite's (2) off-stump was sent cartwheeling by Mohammed Shami in the third over, after the right-hander was late on a defensive jab. The right-handed batsman will play for Mumbai since Sharma is not a part of the Test team which is playing against West Indies.

Kohli fell to debutant paceman Sherman Lewis after adding 64 for the sixth wicket with left-arm spinner Jadeja whose century came off 132 balls.

Kuldeep Yadav starred with the ball in the second innings with figures of 5/57. Ashwin, surpassed the legendary Allan Donald in terms of Test wickets and now holds 333 scalps in 63 Tests played to date.

Skipper Virat Kohli, who also scored a landmark century in India's only innings, was happy with the team's "clinical" showing and praised Shaw for his quality batting.

Rohit's last matches in the Vijay Hazare Trophy were in 2017 when he was making a comeback from a leg injury, however, he only managed to score just 4 and 16 in two outings.
