Mumbai: Pragyan Ojha took five for 40 to wreck West Indies in Day 1 of the second Test at Mumbai Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. West Indies were all out for 182 as the Caribbeans lost eight wickets between lunch and tea after India won the toss and decided to field in a match where Sachin Tendulkar is playing his 200th and final Test match at home.

Ojha formed a menacing pair with Ashwin (3/45) in the second session on Day 1 to leave West Indies batting clueless. The two spinners outfoxed the tourists who had ended the first session of play on a reasonable footing - 93/2.

Each wicket that the two spinners got was applauded vociferously by the spectators who came hoping to watch Tendulkar in action with the bat. And West Indies batsmen answered their prayers by throwing away their wickets.
