Resuming on 354 for six in their second innings, the hosts added another 99 runs in the morning to hold a first-innings lead of 219.

Ravichandran Ashwin, who resumed on 92, completed his second Test century when he pushed Tino Best through the covers for a single.

Debutant partner Rohit Sharma eventually fell for 177 when he was trapped lbw by Veerasammy Permaul to end a record Indian seventh-wicket partnership.

Shane Shillingford then swiftly ended Ashwin’s vigil at 124 and finished with figures of six for 167.

The West Indies started brightly in their reply, with Chris Gayle scoring the opening 33 runs before being caught at square leg by Virat Kohli off Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The total had moved to 101 without further loss before the tourists capitulated, losing nine wickets for just 67 runs.

Ashwin continued his fine day by trapping opener Kieran Powell for 36 and having Darren Bravo caught at point for 37.

Shami had trapped Marlon Samuels for four in-between, and the 23-year-old seamer then picked up three wickets in four balls before Permaul was caught napping out of his crease and was run out by home captain MS Dhoni.

The ever-dependable Shivnarine Chanderpaul could only watch on at the other end as Ashwin had Tino Best caught at deep mid-wicket before Shami completed the rout by clean bowling final man Sheldon Cottrell.
