India wrapped up the second Test match on day 5 by 237 runs to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four match Test series. Setting a target of 346 runs in front of the hosts, India started off pretty well bagging two wickets within four runs. The quicker bowlers were clinical in their planning as the trio of Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami caused the initial damages. West Indies were 53/3 at the stroke of lunch. The script became more ugly for the home team after the lunch as they were left tottering at 95/8 when the only West Indies batsman Darren Bravo who scored a half century was sent back into the hut by Mohammad Shami and eventually West Indies were bundled out for 108 runs.
