West Indies Lose Yet Again



By NAN Sports Editor

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Mon. Oct. 15, 2018: The West Indies cricket side just can’t seem to hold it together as a team. Losing has become almost synonymous with the team much to the humiliation of many of its dwindling fan base.

The Windies on Sunday again lost their two-test series, 2-0, in three days against India after Umesh Yadav claimed a 10-wicket haul for the hosts.

India enjoyed a 56-run lead from the first innings after 18-year-old opener Prithvi Shaw followed up his debut Test century by hitting 70 before Ajinkya Rahane added 80 and Rishabh Pant, 92, which helped the hosts to 314-4.

Skipper Jason Holder, however, did bag 5 for 56.

But India then managed to bowl the tourists out for a mere 127 despite the Windies Roston Chase stepping up and hitting 106.

This set the Indians a target of 72 in the second innings in Hyderabad, which they reached without loss to hand the Windies’ their fourth straight three-day defeat in India.

The two sides will now face-off in the five-match ODI series which begins on October 21st.
