India continued their stranglehold over the West Indies in Antigua on Sunday, as the visitors completed a dominant 318-run win, picking up their first points of the ICC World Test Championships.

On the eve of the first Test of the two-match MyTeam11 series, news broke that all-rounder Keemo Paul—who was struggling with an ankle injury—would be replaced in the squad by fast-bowler Miguel Cummins.

a Tour that was in progress in India

" TROUBLE MADE THE MONKEY EAT PEPPER"
