Earlier, the India spinners - Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin and Suresh Raina, with eight wickets among them - made full use of the conditions, whittling out West Indies for just 211.

1st Test India vs West Indies

Kolkata Test, day 3: India won by an innings and 51 runs; IND-WIN:1-0(1/2)

Debutant Mohammad Shami's raw pace and devastating spell of reverse swing helped India clinch a massive innings and 51 run win against West Indies inside three days in the first cricket Test. India had grabbed a first innings lead of 219 with the help of Rohit Sharma's 177 and Ravichandran Ashwin's 124 in the morning. Shillingford was the pick of the West Indies bowlers, taking six wickets for 167 runs from 55 overs, nine of which were maidens. West Indies collapsed from 101/1 to 168 in their second innings as Mohammed Shami (5-47) and Aswhin (3-46) played starring roles in India's innings victory that stretched their Test winning streak to an unprecedented five matches. Rohit Sharma, who became the 14th Indian batsman to get a century on Test debut, won the Man of the Match award for his brilliant 177. Shami took nine wickets in the match, the second best figures for an Indian bowler on debut, after Narendra Hirwani's 16 for 136 at Madras in January, 1988. Sachin Tendulkar bid goodbye to the Eden Gardens with this victory, but left the fans disappointed as they watched him bat only once during the game. His only contribution with the bat ended when he was controversially given out lbw in the first innings for just 10 when the ball looked to be travelling over the stumps.

Magnificent Dhoni takes India home

With 15 to get off the last over, and only one wicket remaining, Dhoni, who was struggling throughout the innings, hit a 6, 4 and a 6 after missing out on the first ball from Shaminda Eranga to take India home. His innings was reminiscent of the one he played at the Wankhede stadium where he struck an unbeaten 91 against Sri Lanka in the World Cup 2011 final. I think I am blessed with a bit of good cricketing sense. I knew I could get 15 runs off the last over, I'm happy that it worked.  - MS Dhoni, when asked by Arun Lal about his penchant for coming good when the chips are down, during the awards ceremony.
