2nd Test: India beat WI by 257 runs, win series 2-0

Bravo had copped a blow to the side of his helmet from a Bumrah bouncer in the last over on Day 3. Blackwood was originally not a part of the West Indies squad for the second Test, but with the ICC regulations allowing a like-for-like replacement, he was called into action.

It was a unique case where 12 men batted in a Test innings with Chase being trapped in front by Ravindra Jadeja for 12. Shimron Hetmyer did not last long, Ishant Sharma having him caught at extra cover by Mayank Agarwal as the Windies slumped to 98/4 before Brooks and Blackwood joined hands for a 61-run stand.

After lunch, Bumrah got rid of Blackwood to pick up his only wicket in this innings. From there on, it was only a matter of time despite skipper Jason Holder scoring 39 before Jadeja castled him to cap off the marauding victory.

They also earned another 60 World Test Championship points to go top of the table.

Brief scores: India (1st innings): 416 all out (Hanuma Vihari 111, Virat Kohli 76; Jason Holder 5/77); West Indies (1st innings): 117 all out (Shimron Hetmyer 34, Jasprit Bumrah 6/27); India (2nd innings): 168/4 (Ajinkya Rahane 64 not out, Hanuma Vihari 53 nor out), West Indies (2nd innings): 210 all out (Shamarh Brooks 50, Ravindra Jadeja 3/58, Mohammed Shami 3/65).
