India have defeated West Indies by 257 runs in the second Test to clinch a 2-0 series victory.

Set a formidable target of 468, the hosts could only manage 210 in 59.5 overs as the match reached its conclusion well inside the fourth day.

That was largely down to the impressive display from India's bowling quartet Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja, who at one point in the match took five wickets in just over an hour.

Sharmarh Brooks and Jermaine Blackwood put on 61 runs for the fifth wicket but it was to no avail.

The victory was a 28th Test win for Virat Kohli, making him the most successful Indian captain in the longest format of the game.
