Mohammed Shami (5/35) and Ravindra Jadeja (4/87) starred for the hosts on the final day as India registered a big 203 win against Proteas in Vizag to go 1-0 in the three match series.

It was a match that India dominated from the start with centuries from Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock that helped Proteas being a minor blip.

Rohit Sharma hit twin centuries on his first match as Test opener while Mayank Agarwal converted his maiden century into a double hundred. Ravichandran Ashwin picked up his 27th 5-wicket haul while also becoming the joint-fastest bowler to claim 350 Test scalps.

Proteas will be looking for a better performance come the second Test match in Pune which begins on October 10.
