West Indies Vs England, 2nd Test: West Indies win by 10 wickets and First Test series win over England since 2008

West Indies defeated England by 10 wickets in the second one and made an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

The West Indies made 306 runs after England were all out for 187 in the first innings at the Antigua North Sound Arena. After this, England could not do anything special in the second innings and the team was reduced to 132 runs, with the West Indies getting only 14 runs. The target was lost without any wicket lost in the West Indies team 2.1 overs and won the match on the third day.

Credit has to be given to the batsmen as well from the home side. On a track which was very difficult to bat on, they managed to get a lead in excess of 100, which was gold dust in this case. Only one half centurion in the innings but the time spent was enormous. The top four batsmen faced 556 balls - England played only 619 in both innings combined. The hosts' batters took their time and grafted their innings, not allowing England to get much ahead. Of course, that lucky Friday aided them, where England missed a plethora of chances.

The players are getting ready for the presentation. Should Kemar Roach be given the Man of The Series here itself? 13 wickets at an average of 12.07 and a strike rate of 24.4. Mind-blowing.
