The tourists were 33 for one at lunch, needing another 436 runs to
avoid an innings defeat at the start of the two-match series. Kieran
Powell, on 22, and Shai Hope, on nought, were batting at the break.
Ashwin, fresh from his 4-37 in West Indies' first innings, struck
again before lunch to claim the wicket of stand-in-skipper Kraigg
Brathwaite for 10.
Earlier Roston Chase top-scored with a gritty 53 for the West Indies
who started the day on 94/6 in response to India's mammoth 649/9
Chase put up some resistance against an inspired Indian bowling
attack during his 73-run seventh wicket partnership with Keemo Paul, who
Chase and Paul countered with a flurry of boundaries early in the
morning session to give some hope of West Indies fightback but their
batting fell flat soon after the duo's departure.
Umesh Yadav struck the first blow in the morning session after
getting Paul caught at mid-wicket for 47. Just into his second Test,
Paul hit seven fours and two sixes during his 49-ball stay.
Ashwin got Chase bowled on a big turning off-spinner that found the inside edge of the bat to crash on to the stumps.
But it was the Indian batsmen who made the world's number one side
dominate after centuries by debutant Prithvi Shaw, skipper Virat Kohli
and Ravindra Jadeja.
