Ishant Sharma took a total of 8 wickets in the match. The fourth innings hero was Jasprit Bumrah, who took 5 wickets for 7 runs and gave the team the victory on the fourth day. This is the fourth 5 wicket hall of his career.

Batting first after losing the toss, West Indies were all out for 222 in the first innings in response to Team India's first innings 297 runs. At the same time, in the second innings, India declared the innings at 347/7 and gave the West Indies the target of 419 runs to win. In response, the entire Windies team was bowled out to 100 runs in 26.5 overs and lost the match.
