India recorded convincing innings and a 141-run win over the West Indies on Day 3 of the 1st Test at Dominica on Friday, riding on brilliant performances by debutant Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored 171, and old warhorse Ravichandran Ashwin, who claimed a match haul of 12 wickets. Former skipper Virat Kohli too joined the party, hitting 76 as India declared their innings on 421/5. Ashwin & Co. took over from there, bowling out the hosts for only 130 in the second innings.
Former India wicketkeeper Saba Karim, who is now an expert with JioCinema, praised Ashwin’s efforts, saying: “He is always willing to learn and that is what is remarkable about R Ashwin. Even in this game, you would have noticed that he was able to gauge the weakness of the batters quickly and then he went around trying to set them up. You could see him change the angle accordingly.”
Ashwin has been playing on the international circuit for over a decade, and Karim is fascinated by his willingness to bring about new dimensions to his game. “As an off-spin bowler he keeps adding so many new things to his armoury and I feel that there is a lot for the young spinners to learn from him,” he said.
Meanwhile, Yashasvi Jaiswal made a massive impression in this game and grabbed his chance with both hands. Speaking about his performance, Karim said: “The fact that he played on all three days, he played through different conditions of the surface here, in different scenarios, in different phases, and he batted in such an accomplished manner and that’s what you would love to see in a young batter and it seems he had come well prepared for a Test match like this.”
