India continued their dominance over Windies by winning the second Test by 257 runs to claim the series 2-0 series. They noe top the ICC World Test Championship points table. Chasing a near-impossible target of 468, West Indies batting once again failed to show stomach for a good fight as they caved in for 210 in 59.5 overs, well inside the fourth day.The bowling quartet of Ishant Sharma (2/37 in 12 overs), Mohammed Shami (3/65 in 16 overs), Jasprit Bumrah (1/31 in 11 overs) and lone spinner Ravindra Jadeja (3/58 in 16.5 overs) were relentless in their pursuit of maintaining a tight leash on the home team batsmen.
Such was India's dominance in the two Test matches that West Indies couldn't even cross 250 in any of their four innings and the only half-century was scored by Shamarh Brooks (50) in this game. The win took India's points tally to 120 after two games and they lead the nine-team table even though Pakistan, Bangladesh and South Africa are yet to begin their bilateral campaign as a part of the championship.As far as the match is concerned, the writing was on the cards and skipper Virat Kohli effected a brilliant run-out in the post lunch session. Starting the post-lunch session at 145 for 4, West Indies lost five wickets in just over an hour adding only 65 runs as a physically indisposed Darren Bravo didn't come out to bat.
