The West Indies will have to lift themselves to put up a better performance after being thoroughly outplayed in Rajkot. Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Jadeja, and Kuldeep Yadav also chipped in with a wicket each to cap off a flawless day for the Indians at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium. The P Sara Stadium was left partially flooded after heavy rain and play was abandoned without a ball being bowled, denying the spinner Liam Dawson and the Curran brothers a chance to impress. Windies surrendered against a dominated India side within three days by an innings and 272 runs.

Kuldeep becomes the seventh bowler to take a five-for in a Test, one-day global 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.

With India scheduled to play a bulk of worldwide games in Australia, New Zealand and again at home against Australia and Zimbabwe before the IPL next year, the players face a huge task of keeping themselves fit.

The top team ranking will potentially be up for the taking depending on how the Sri Lanka and England series pans out.

After India declared their first innings on a mammoth 649-9 at tea, the Windies got off to a worst possible start, losing both their openers inside the first five overs.

Resuming the day with an overnight first innings score of 94/6, West Indies lasted an hour and 10 minutes mainly because of the efforts of Roston Chase (53, 79b, 8×4) and Keemo Paul (47) who ended up sharing a 73-run stand for the seventh wicket.

The opener Kieran Powell was the only batsman to make a significant second-innings contribution, with 83 off 93 balls including eight boundaries and four sixes.

He trapped Hope lbw and then Shimron Hetmyer (11) was caught flashing at short third man, an unnecessary shot.

Jason Holder will captain the Windies in the ODI series while Carlos Brathwaite will captain the team for the T20I series against India.

The first ODI is scheduled to take place on October 21.

"We wanted him to cross the three-figure mark because we believe in his batting ability", India captain Virat Kohli said after India's win over the Windies.
