They did not fare any better in the second innings, crumbling to 196 all out in 50.5 overs in the final session. Apart from the record-breaking knock by skipper Virat Kohli, the highlight of the match was Prithvi Shaw who registered a century in his debut Test and was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match award. The one rating point that he gets is only for turning up for the match and picking up a catch in the second innings.

Pant, a 21-year-old left-hander in only his fourth Test, played with gay abandon, striking eight fours and four sixes off a mere 84 balls, before perishing about 45 minutes before the interval.

This approach surprised Ravichandran Ashwin too, who in a post-match interview with the official broadcaster, asserted that the wicket wasn't a very hard one to bat one. But Kuldeep turned his fortunes around spectacularly in the second innings as he grabbed a stunning five-wicket haul to star in India's emphatic win.

Kuldeep becomes the seventh bowler to take a five-for in a Test, one-day worldwide and Twenty20 - following compatriot Bhuvneshwar Kumar, New Zealand's Tim Southee, Sri Lanka pair Lasith Malinga and Ajantha Mendis, Pakistan's Umar Gul and Imran Tahir of South Africa.
