2nd Test: Australia hammer West Indies by 419 runs to sweep series | Cricket News – Times of India

ADELAIDE: Australia routed West Indies for 77 within the second innings to romp to a 419-run victory within the day-night second Test and full a 2-0 collection sweep on the Adelaide Oval on Sunday.
With West Indies set a hopeless victory goal of 497, their defeat was merely a matter of time after they started the penultimate day on a precarious 38-4.
Australia took 90 minutes to finish formalities, with Michael Neser and Mitchell Starc sharing 5 of the final six West Indies wicket.
Tagenarine Chanderpaul’s 17 was the very best rating by an West Indies batter of their sorry-looking scorecard.
Scott Boland’s three-wicket burst on Saturday had put Australia on the point of an enormous victory, and Starc (3-29) eliminated in a single day batsmen Devon Thomas and Jason Holder throughout the first half-hour on Sunday to successfully expose the West Indies tail.
Neser (3-22) then took over, dismissing Roston Chase and Joshua Da Silva in the identical over. He eliminated Marquino Mindley to seal Australia’s victory with 5 periods to spare.
In between, spinner Nathan Lyon bowled Alzarri Joseph to assert his 450th Test wicket in his 112th match.
Alex Carey put up a wicketkeeping masterclass for the hosts, pouching three beautiful catches to hasten West Indies’ collapse.
World primary Australia had been with out common skipper Pat Cummins and fellow fast Josh Hazlewood by accidents, however Boland and Neser ensured they weren’t missed.
Local boy Travis Head was adjudged player-of-the-match for his career-best 175 that helped Australia put up 511-7 earlier than declaring their first innings.
Marnus Labuschagne, who smashed three 100-plus scores in 4 innings, was the apparent selection for the player-of-the-series award.
