IND Vs WI: Rain Became Villain For India, Second Test Draw, Team India Won Series 1-0

India vs West Indies 2nd Test: The second and final Test match between India and West Indies ended in a draw due to rain on the fifth day of the game. Team India won the two-match series 1-0 in this way, but the rain washed away their hopes of collecting some important points for the third cycle of the World Test Championship (WTC) by cleaning it.

India, who had reached the finals in the first two cycles of the WTC, started the new cycle on a grand note by winning the first Test match played in Dominica by an innings and 141 runs. It rained heavily since morning on the fifth and final day of the second Test match, due to which the players had to spend time in the dressing room. Shortly before the scheduled time of lunch, the rain stopped and the clouds also parted, after which the umpires announced the start of the game at 11.10 am Indian time.

Just then the players could get on the field when the clouds came and then it started raining. The umpires then announced the end of the match draw at 12.20 minutes Indian time with the consent of both the captains. Meanwhile, when the rain stopped, Indian captain Rohit Sharma spent time signing autographs for his fans.

Play on the fourth day of the match was also affected by rain, with the West Indies scoring 76 for two while chasing a difficult target of 365. At the end of the fourth day’s play, Jermaine Blackwood was playing on 20 and opener Tegnarayan Chanderpaul was playing on 24 runs.

Batting first, India scored 438 runs in their first innings with the help of Virat Kohli’s 121 runs. Due to the brilliant bowling of fast bowler Mohammad Siraj on the fourth day, India dismissed West Indies for 255 runs in the first innings.

West Indies started their first innings ahead of 229 for four on the fourth day, but Siraj raised the hopes of India’s victory by taking five wickets in the morning session. Siraj took five wickets for 60 runs in his career best performance.

With the help of aggressive half-centuries from captain Rohit Sharma (57) and wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan (52 not out), India declared their second innings at 181 for two and set a challenging target in front of the West Indies.
