Bumrah had become the fastest Indian pacer to scalp 50 Test wickets, surpassing Venkatesh Prasad and Mohammad Shami. However, Shami and Prasad made their record in 13 Tests while Bumrah achieved the feat in his 11th Test.
Earlier, India resumed their innings at 185/3 on the final day of the first Test and went on to add 158 runs more to their tally to take the score up to 343 runs and gain a lead of 418 runs.
West Indies failed to stay at the crease for a long time in the second innings and their entire team was bowled out in just 27 overs.
India is with a double victory in both T20 and ODI series and now gained a 1-0 lead in the Test series. The team will take on to the second Test on August 30 at Jamaica.

Leave Ashes , this year no one has bowled as well as Bumrah did today against West Indies.
Outswing, inswing and jaffas crashing into stumps with batsmen looking befuddled.
