WI vs Eng - 2nd Test, Antigua, day 3

West Indies crush England to seal series win

Antigua: Kemar Roach and captain Jason Holder took four wickets each as West Indies thumped England by 10 wickets in the second test in Antigua to gain an unbeatable 2-0 series lead on Saturday.

With fellow pace bowler Alzarri Joseph chipping in with two top-order wickets, including the prized scalp of captain Joe Root, the hosts bowled out England for 132 in the second innings.

Joseph's performance came hours after his mother died following a long battle with a brain tumour.

West Indies needed only 14 runs in their second innings, and they polished them off quickly to win with more than two days to spare.

John Campbell clinched victory in appropriate Calypso fashion with a six over mid-wicket as batting great Viv Richards, after whom the stadium is named, grinned broadly in the crowd, ever the epitome of cool in his dark sunglasses.

Brief scores:
West Indies 306 (Bravo 50, Broad 3-53, Ali 3-62) and 17 for 0 (Campbell 11*, Brathwaite 5*) beat England 187 (Moeen 60, Bairstow 52, Roach 4-30) and 132 (Buttler 24, Holder 4-43, Roach 4-52) by 10 wickets

West Indies lead the three-test series 2-0.

They won the first test by 381 runs in Barbados.

It is only the second time in the past 10 series that West Indies have won the Wisden Trophy.

England have dominated over the past two decades with seven series wins, while one was drawn.
