West Indies won the first Test in 25 years, won the second Test from England.


Fast bowler Kemar Roach and captain Jason Holder then demolished England's batting, giving West Indies a 10-wicket win over the third day in the second Test match. In such a way, the Indies achieved a 2-0 unbeaten lead in the three-match series. He also won the first test match in Barbados with 381 runs. The third and final Test match will be played in St. Lucia from Saturday.

West Indies, with the help of a slow, but useful innings from Darren Bravo, made an impressive 119 in the first innings with 306 runs. England, who scored 187 in the first innings, also failed in the second innings and their entire team got stacked on 132 runs. Both Roach and Holder took four or four wickets.

This way the West Indies got the target of 14 runs. Opener Craig Bradley (5 not out) and John Campbell (11 not out) made their team reach the target in just 2.1 overs. Campbell made a winning six on the midwicket on James Anderson and scored a score of 17 without loss.

This is the first time since 1994 when the Caribbean team defeated England in consecutive Test matches. Holder later said, "We are hungry for victory. This team has been together for the last few years and is doing the best. The way we did last year's end was disappointing and everyone was committed to change things. '

England's captain Joe Root said, 'It's disappointing. We got beaten again and it is very difficult to digest it. We did hard work in bowling but you can not win if you score less than 200. "

Man of the Match Roch (4 for 52, 8 wickets in 82 balls) and Holder (4 for 43) played an important role in adjusting England's innings. But his fellow fast bowler Alzari Joseph's contribution can not be underestimated.

Joseph continued to play in the morning despite his mother Sharon's demise and took two wickets with 12 runs. He got the route and opener who took important wickets of Denly. Jose Butler top scored with 24 runs from England.
