Keys to India's win : Virat Kohli, Ashwin and a West Indies surrender

The most predictable Test match you could possibly imagine came to a conclusion in Antigua as the West Indies were bowled out for 231 to lose by an innings and 92 runs. The Indian bowlers did well to take the nine wickets that they needed for victory on Day four and are deserved winners, but from the moment that Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bowl on Thursday morning this game has played out exactly as you would have expected – A massive first innings from India led by a masterful Kohli innings followed by two meek capitulations by a West Indies side that seem incapable of sustained application when they are at the batting crease.

From a West Indian stand point this result is as bleak a reminder as they could have had as to their relative standing in the world of Test cricket. A professional performance from India swept them aside with so much ease that they didn’t ever have to do anything beyond putting the ball in the right spot to bowl then out twice.
