The success was 28th in Tests for Virat Kohli making him the most successful Indian captain in the usual format of the sport. Following a near-impossible target of 468, West Indies batting once again failed to show stomach for a good fight as they were bowled out in 59.5 overs, well inside the 4th day.
It was one of the most pleasant tours for skipper Virat Kohli as his team had a clean sweep in 2-formats (3-0 in T20Is and 2-0 in Tests)
while poor weather robbed them in another form (2-0 in 3-match ODI series).
The bowling quartet of Ishant Sharma (2/37 in 12 overs), Mohammed Shami (3/65 in 16 overs), Jasprit Bumrah (1/31 in 11 overs) and lone spinner Ravindra Jadeja (3/58 in 16.5 overs) were relentless in their pursuit of keeping a tight leash on the home team batsmen.
Such was India’s dominance in the two-Test matches that West Indies couldn’t even cross 250 in any of their 4-innings.
the only half-century was scored by Shamarh Brooks (50) in this game.
