News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. Oct. 10, 2018: After a humiliating inning and 272-run defeat at the hands of India, the West Indies is now gearing up to face the host side again this week.
The second test match is set for Friday, Oct. 12-Tuesday, Oct. 16th in Hyderabad.

Following on by 468 runs, West Indies capitulated a second time for 196, despite an attacking 83 from left-handed opener Kieran Powell.
Kuldeep Yadav wrecked the innings with five for 57 while fellow left-arm spinner Ravi Jadeja picked up three for 35.
