India vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 3 Highlights: We have had six days of cricket and only one session in which the West Indies gave a semblance of a fight. Umesh Yadav tore through the West Indies batting order once again. West Indies folded for 127 in the second innings leaving India with a target of 72 to chase. Umesh ended up picking up the man of the match award, while 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw is the man of the series in his very first Test rubber.

India vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 3 Highlights:

18:34 (IST)14 Oct 2018
Virat Kohli

We didn't expect that in the morning. West Indies did really well to put pressure on us. Getting 50-60 lead was a bonus for us. We wanted more. But we understood how to create pressure and intensity with the ball. Didn't think a three-day finish was part of the plan. If you look at the three new guys who've come in, they've grabbed their opportunities. I think all these things are a big positive. But from this Test I want to single out Umesh. Shardul broke down and to take ten wickets is great. His energy in the field too. Outstanding performance. We're all happy for him. I think it's a great luxury to have [several seamers]. We have a headache to choose out of so many good quality bowlers. That's a better position to be in than looking for bowlers. I'm really happy to see these guys fit and hungry. It's up to the batsmen to do the rest of the job. I think this game was tougher for the batsmen. This first innings was more challenging than the last one. Jason coming in - he knows how to take wickets. Jinx has been batting really well, he got runs in Nottingham and we won the Test. He wanted runs under the belt. His 145 partnership with Pant is something we want to see more of.

Man of the series is 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw

 It was a happy moment for me, finishing a game for India. It's a moment of pride. My first international series and winning it 2-0 with a MOTs award is a great feeling. Everyone is like a family now, it's not like a junior and senior situation anymore. I don't know what's happening next, I'm just enjoying this moment.

Man of the match Umesh Yadav

First of all, I want to thank my team-mates for giving me the support and confidence. I knew I was the only fast bowler in the team so I just went all out and gave it my best, tried to take five more in the second innings. It's always good to have healthy competition in the team. We're enjoying each other's company. We keep giving our best for each other and the team.

Jason Holder

Definitely a little disappointed with the batting. We fought our way back nicely after the first Test. Credit to the way India play cricket. In hindsight a lot of seamers got wickets, we probably would've gone with an extra seamer. Didn't spin as much as we thought. I think that's the thing - we need to apply ourselves more in batting. We need to give ourselves time. Personally I'm in a good headspace. I love playing Test cricket. It's my favourite format.

17:30 (IST)14 Oct 2018
And that ends the series

Two Test matches, 6 days. West Indies are simply no match for India in this format. They have spoken about the difficulty of using an SG Ball, something that has been echoed by Virat Kohli, but there is little chance that they had been affected so much that they lost a series they could have won. This was a walkover for the hosts. 

17:17 (IST)14 Oct 2018

FOUR! Prithvi Shaw finishes things off in style to steer India for a victory. India win the 2nd Test match by 10 wickets to clean sweep series by 2-0.

17:03 (IST)14 Oct 2018
Umpire telling players that they are extending time

Prithvi Shaw charges down the stumps on Devendra Bishoo's delivery. But he completely missed the shot, but the wicketkeeper made a mess of it behind the stumps. Bishoo looks miffed!

16:33 (IST)14 Oct 2018
Shaw smacked on the head!

Prithvi Shaw has been hit badly on the helmet. A short delivery from Jason Holder and Shaw ducks and it hit him on the head. Holder calls for a review on LBW appeal, but the replays showed it was going away from the stumps. 


16:19 (IST)14 Oct 2018

WICKET! Ravindra Jadeja has trapped Sunil Ambris on front foot. Huge appeal, and then he wasted another review for West Indies. WI 109/8

15:31 (IST)14 Oct 2018

WICKET! Kuldeep Yadav strikes and Jason Holder has nicked a ball straight to Rishabh Pant. He has gone upstairs for a review call. There was a clear edge as per snickometer. Why  would the skipper waste a review! WI 109/7

100 up for West Indies! A little bit of length from Kuldeep Yadav and Jason Holder flexes his muscles to guide it for a boundary. Brings up 100 for West Indies. 

15:02 (IST)14 Oct 2018
India lose review

India decide to review a caught behind appeal from Kuldeep Yadav concerning Jason Holder. Replays showed there was no  bat at all. India lose a review.

India vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 3 Highlights: Rishabh Pant’s audacious stroke-play complemented Ajinkya Rahane’s patient approach as India reached 308 for four against West Indies on the second day of the second cricket Test on Saturday. India are now only three runs short of West Indies’ first innings total of 311. The Caribbeans could add only 16 runs in the morning session after Umesh Yadav polished off the tail with career-best figures of 6/88 in 26.4 overs. While young Pant celebrated his ODI call-up with a second Test half-century, an attractive unbeaten 85 off 120 balls, vice-captain Rahane slogged hard to remain undefeated on 75 off 174 balls. Together, the duo added 146 runs for the unbroken fifth wicket after India lost in-form skipper Virat Kohli (45) to be reduced to 163 for 4.
