Ashwin and Jaiswal help India defeat West Indies by an innings and 141 runs in three days

Finally, Rohit Sharma put an end to his poor form as he scored a century in the first Test against the West Indies in Dominica. Reaching the triple-digit score would do good for the confidence of the captain of the team, who has been struggling to score big for a while now. Reacting to Rohit's century, India's great Anil Kumble heaped praise on the veteran batter but also asserted that, for him, the Hitman was never out of form.
In a chat after Rohit smashed a century, Kumble said that the India Captain looked determined to do well from the first ball he faced.
Kumble said, "You saw from Ball 1, the moment he stepped out, he knew he had to play a different kind of innings; it was not the kind of pitch where the ball was coming onto the bat. Rohit likes the pace; even when the fast bowlers bowled those short deliveries, it was not coming on. He was happy to stay restrained, and then, yes, on a couple of occasions, he took on the bowlers and hit them over the top."
He further explained that, "Yes, wonderful innings, much-needed for Rohit because it was not that he was out of form. Even in the WTC, he was looking really good. Yes, he got out, but he was looking good. Even in the IPL, he was looking good every time he went out there. You could make out that when someone is not in form, and he was never like that. I am glad that he could put his head down and get the hundred."
