It’s been an emphatic tour for the Indian team. They blanked the West Indies in the T20Is and ODIs and now, they’ve done the same in Test cricket as well. Moreover, this 2-0 series win means that they have pocketed 120 Test championship points which puts them at the top of that table.

West Indies won the toss in both the games and inserted India in to bat first. They did pick up early wickets in both games but failed to capitalize. The Indian middle-order showed its strength as Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari contributed big in both games and put the Indian team in a position of strength. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah led the attack beautifully and was at his lethal best. He had good support from Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami as well.

For the Windies, there’s not a lot of positives to look at. Jason Holder led from the front but didn’t have a lot of support. Kemar Roach bowled his heart out but was unlucky as well. However, they were shoddy with the bat and hence, paid the price.

Thus, with the series and the tour coming to an end, we look at the combined XI for the two-match Test series.
