“No one expected that a team could get out in one-and-a-half sessions but we all know Ravichandran (Ashwin) and Jaddu’s (Ravindra Jadeja) quality.”

The Indian pacer emphasized that the pair caused carnage on a helpful track as was to be expected,

“When they have picked up wickets on flat pitches where the ball doesn’t turn much, this wicket had a lot of turn and help for them and they showed why they are the best spinners in the world.”

Ishant Sharma was also asked if he anticipated the match to ed on Day 3, to which he responded,

“Absolutely, when we saw Rahkeem Cornwall and their left-arm spinner bowling, the way dust was flying from the wicket and this is not an Indian wicket, which is slow, and the ball doesn’t get soft here. It’s the Dukes ball, it remains hard. You get bounce along with turn here. So it becomes very difficult.”

While Ashwin concluded with 7/71 in 21.3 overs, Jadeja took two wickets while surrendering only 38 runs in his 21 overs. In the West Indies’ second innings, Mohammed Siraj took the other wicket.

Ishant Sharma was also asked about R Ashwin’s ninth 10-wicket match haul, to which he replied,

“Ashwin, no doubt, is a great spinner – one of the best in the world and is ranked No. 1 in Tests because of that. It is very difficult for a bowler to pick up 10 wickets, whether you are a spinner or a fast bowler, you need to bowl a lot of overs and you need to prepare for that in the nets. So he got the fruits of his effort.”

Ashwin ended the match with a tally of 12/131. The off-spinner matched Anil Kumble as the Indian bowler with highest 10-wicket game hauls, both having done it eight times.
