India Vs West Indies First Test 2013: India wins the match in a splendid fashion at Eden Gardens Kolkata

India beat West Indies in the first Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata with a superb performance with bat and the ball. 

The two debutant players Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami Ahmed made this match a memorable one with splendid performances. 

After Mohammed Shami's first innings haul of 4/71, it was Rohit Sharma's turn to score a hundred on debut.

Rohit Sharma with Ravichandran Ashwin combined well to put together a solid partnership that gave India 219 runs lead in the first innings with the team total of 456 all out.

Then Ravichandran Ashwin continued his good performance with the ball too picking up three West Indian wickets. 

Mohammed Shami then ran through the West Indian middle and lower order with his reverse swinging deliveries, clean blowing most of the batsmen.

Eden Gardens crowd had some good entertainment cricket to watch with the spectacular performance from the Indian team, that made the farewell Sachin Tendulkar match a memorable one.

Now India move on to Mumbai for the second test Match of the series on Nov 14. 

Hope the West Indian team take positives from the match where they were in a good position in the Test match and there after didn't look up to the mark, particularly with the bat.
