Contributions from debutant Prithvi Shaw (134), Cheteshwar Pujara (86), captain Virat Kohli (139), Rishabh Pant (92) and Ravindra Jadeja (100*) helped India amass 649 for 9 declared in their first innings. In reply, Windies were bundled out for just 181 in 48 overs. With a huge 468-run lead, India expectedly enforced the follow-on and the visiting side were bowled out for just 196 runs in 50.5 overs in their second essay.
