West Indies have lost the third Test versus India by a huge margin of 237 runs. They were all out for 108, in the second innings which is their second lowest score against India in Tests. Given a target of 346 to chase on Day Five, the hosts lost the momentum completely and could not even sustain two and a half sessions to draw the game. India have now taken an unassailable lead in the four-Test series with the final match in Port-of-Spain. This is also Virat Kohli‘s side’s third consecutive Test series win. They defeated Sri Lanka (2-1) and South Africa (3-0) and have folowed it up with another win in West Indies. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs West Indies, 3rd Test match
