West Indies coach Stuart Law suspended for first two ODIs against India

West Indies coach Stuart Law suspended for first two ODIs against India”

A clinical India completed one of the most ruthless clean sweeps in recent times, demolishing a listless West Indies by 10 wickets in the second Test, inside three days, to clinch the series 2-0 on October 14.

Openers Prithvi Shaw (33 not out) and Lokesh Rahul (33 not out) guided the side home easily in just 16.1 overs on the third day of the Test.

Holder, who had also got his opposite number Virat Kohli's prized scalp on day two, became only the second pace bowler after India's Umesh Yadav, who took 6-88 in the West Indies innings, to claim a five-wicket haul at the ground.

India dominated the last two sessions of the third day's play in the second and final Test match to crush West Indies by 10 wickets and complete a series whitewash easily on Sunday.

Windies have now lost 12 of their last 21 Tests to India and have not had a series win in India since 1983. Sunil Ambris top-scored with 38, offering some resistance with skipper Jason Holder for the seventh-wicket, but the tourists were bowled out for just 127 in the final session. He was eventually bowled by Yadav, who returned career-best figures of 6-88 in an innings.

Fast bowler Shannon Gabriel claimed three for 107, while left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican, in his first Test in almost three years, ended with two for 84.

Post tea, West Indies were unable to salvage much from the second innings' wreckage. Brathwaite lazily clipped a leg-side catch to wicketkeeper Pant off Umesh, without a run on the board. Powell stood his ground as the on-field umpires referred the catch to the third umpire.

Umesh Yadav has been named his replacement in the squad who has been immediately rewarded for his heroics in Hyderabad Test. As a result, he will not be in the dressing room with the team for the first two games of the upcoming series against India.
