As anticipated, Team India comfortably won the second Test against the West Indies and by a huge margin. Moreover, they also accomplished the clean sweep with this victory and added 120 points to their tally in the World Test Championship. The hosts couldn’t score too many runs in the second innings but still, put up their best effort in this entire series.

Both of them picked up three-wicket hauls while Ishant Sharma accounted for two wickets. West Indies continued to bat with an overnight score of 45/2.

Jadeja trapped him LBW for 12 runs.
Virat Kohli wins more games than anyone else as India’s Test captain
Though, Shamarh Brooks looked quite impressive with the bat. He scored 50 runs before Virat Kohli ran him out. Later in the innings, concussion substitute Jermaine Blackwood looked quite impressive. He scored 38 runs before Jasprit Bumrah found his edge which carried to the keeper. West Indies skipper Jason Holder tried to play aggressive cricket and raced his way to a 35-ball 39. However, Ravindra Jadeja disturbed the timber with a brilliant delivery and got him out.
Mohammad Shami handled the tail and quickly ran through the last two wickets. West Indies was bowled out for 210 runs in 59.5 overs. India won the match by a huge margin of 257 runs and the players were thrilled after the victory. For his brilliant efforts in both the innings of the game, Hanuma Vihari was named the Man of the Match.
The fans were elated after this win and expressed their joy. Also, they showed concern about the dipping standards of West Indies cricket. They congratulated Virat Kohli on his 28th Test win as the Indian captain – the most by any surpassing the record of MS Dhoni (27). Moreover, they enjoyed the fiery spells from Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami. Aficionadi expressed happiness about India topping the charts in the World Test Championship.

West Indies do not play a WTC series for the next 1 year. Till July 2020 Windies will be on 0 Points. India could potentially be on 480 by then. By not playing for so long how can the team improve? A lot of things wrong in the way Test cricket is scheduled. #WTC #GrowTestcricket
