Former West Indian pacer Tino Best has not taken too kindly to comments made by Harbhajan Singh regarding the current Windies team that is on tour to India. The Windies were outplayed and outclassed by India in the opening Test in a lopsided contest at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot. India won the match inside three days, registering their biggest innings win in Test cricket. During the match, Harbhajan questioned the quality of the Windies team and saying that the visitors were not even good enough to compete against the elite teams in Ranji Trophy.

Tino Best was not too impressed with the Harbhajan's tweet and hit back at the Indian off-spinner. The West Indian took a pot shot at India's performance during the Test series in England, where they lost the five-match series 1-4.

Not just the West Indian cricketer, some Indian fans too were left outraged by Harbhajan's comments.

However, the Windies team did little to prove Harbhajan wrong, putting in a meek performance at Rajkot.

Spinner Kuldeep Yadav starred in India's biggest-ever Test triumph as they thrashed the Windies by an innings and 272 runs.

The tourists were dismissed for 196 -- in their second innings -- early in the final session while following on, to trail the two-match series 0-1. They were bowled out for 181 in their first innings in response to India's 649 for nine declared.

The win at Rajkot helped the world's top Test side surpass their previous biggest win against Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs during the minnows' debut five-day game in June.

The Windies will have a chance to reclaim some of their lost pride when they face India in the second Test at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad, starting October 12.
