Except Krishnamachari Srikkanth (38) and Sandeep Patil (29), none of the other batsmen managed to contribute much to their side's innings as India were bundled out for 183 runs inside 54.4 overs.
For West Indies, Sir Andy Roberts was pick of the bowlers with figures of three for 32, while Malcolm Marshall, Larry Gomes and Michael Holding all bagged two wickets each.Joel Garner also chipped in with a wicket.
In reply, Mohinder Amarnath finished with brilliant figures of three for 12, followed by Madan Lal's three for 31.
While Balwinder Sandhu also bagged two wickets, Kapil Dev and Roger Binny chipped in with a wicket each to help India bundle out West Indies cheaply for 140 runs inside 52 overs to emerge victorious.
