Home side dominant to earn victory well inside three days.
India has romped to an easy victory against the West Indies at Eden Gardens, thumping the tourists by an innings and 51 runs in the first of their short two-game series.
At lunch on the second day, after India had lost five for very little, and their chances of victory seemingly slipping away from them.
However, a terrific turnaround was engineered by Rohit Sharma and R Ashwin and completed by Mohammed Shami with his superb bowling on the third morning of the game.
Batting first and the West Indies were able to make starts but were unable to go on with the job as Marlon Samuels top-scored with 65 while Shivnarine Chanderpaul made 36 and Chris Gayle just 18 at the top of the order.
Mohammed Shami was the pick of the India bowlers in snaring 4-71 off 17 overs with Aswin (2-52) and Sachin Tendulkar 1-5 off two with a maiden) chipping in to see the West Indies bowled out for 234.
In replay India’s top-order crumbled thanks to the bowling of Shane Shillingford (6-167 off 55 overs) as they fell to be 5-83.
But a sensational partnership between Rohit Sharma (177) and Ashwin (124) out their side back on the front foot as they finished with a lead of 219 runs.
Much like in their first innings, the West Indies struggled to turn a start into a score of any consequence as Gayle (33), Kieran Powell (36), Darren Bravo (37), and Chanderpaul (31) got their eye in.
But a sensational bowling effort from Shami (5-47) saw his side cruise to a crushing victory as the series prepares to move onto Mumbai where Sachin Tendulkar will play his last ever Test match.
