India sweep series with big win over West Indies

India West Indies Hanuma Vihari Jasprit Bumrah Ishant Sharma

India recovered from a shaky start in Jamaica to establish control against West Indies - thanks in no small part to captain Virat Kohli.

JASPRIT BUMRAH bamboozled the West Indies at Sabina Park yesterday and continued his wicket-taking riot that has rocked the regional side in this one-sided Tests series. Pujara made 27, Rahane made 64* and Vihari followed his first-innings century with a score of 53* as India declared for 168/4 and set West Indies a target of 468 runs.

Rishabh Pant has become the quickest Indian wicketkeeper to effect 50 dismissals in Test cricket, overtaking former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

The 26-year-old bowled 27 overs, giving away just 69 runs on the opening day of the second Test. The hosts were45-2 at the end of the third day's play with Dareen Bravo and Sharmarh Brooks batting at 18 and 4 respectively.

Asked about India's strategy, Bumrah said the plan was to create pressure in the first innings. He nearly picked up a hat-trick, after he had dismissed KL Rahul and Virat Kohli off successive deliveries after which he got Ajinkya Rahane's inside edge off the hat-trick ball which missed the stumps by a whisker.

Thunberg will communicate at a September 23 local weather summit through the annual gathering of world leaders for the U.N. She continued her school strike on Fridays after the election, spurring thousands of young people to follow suit.

Saturday saw the talented right-armer clinch telling figures of 6/16, as the West Indies slipped to 87/7 in response to the tourists' 416 all out. All of them have lauded Bumrah for his awesome bowling on the West Indies pitches and for one-upping their own fast bowlers.

"I thought it was bat (first), so I didn't appeal so much".

After dismissing opener Mayank Agarwal (5) before lunch on the third day of the second Test, Roach came out firing on all cylinders and removed KL Rahul and skipper Virat Kohli off successive balls to be on the verge of a hat-trick in India's second innings on Sunday.

Jason Holder and his West Indies needs will need a miracle to save the second test against India. "That was the plan going into the first innings", he said.

West Indies pacers, led by Kemar Roach responded with fire, leaving India at 36/3 before half-centuries from Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane upped the tempo.

Marsh was only able to play in one Championship game and four T20 matches in the second season of his two-year Glamorgan contract, thanks to a combination of global duties and injury.
