Formidable Mumbai got a major boost for the crucial semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy tournament with the availability of three top players, two of whom missed the whole or part of the league phase.

Law was given three demerit points and fined 100% of his match fee after breaching the ICC's code of conduct in the second Test against India.

"Not many people realize but he is a very, very talented bowler". The Delhi batsman had started the series in 111th position and would be deriving satisfaction from the rankings gain after missing centuries in successive Tests, also dismissed for 92 in the opening match in Rajkot.

Lokesh Rahul (33 not out) and Prithvi Shaw (33 not out) made light work of the chase thereafter as India clinched the series 2-0 in dominant style.

For the second time in as many Tests, India thrashed West Indies inside three days to clean sweep the two-match series at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday.

According to report in Indian Express, Prithvi Shaw may be given a chance in the ODI series as well.

West Indies' tour of India is going from bad to worse. India now have a first innings lead of 56 runs. We look back in the last two years and we have some good results. The credits, however, go to the cricketers who had played in the past and raised the standard of Indian cricket to the level it has reached today. This was the 8th time when the Indian team won the match by 10 wickets and marked the first occasion against West Indies that the Men in Blue won without losing a wicket in the second innings.

His much-awaited Test debut ended in a nightmare in Hyderabad as he bowled only 10 deliveries before hobbling out with a groin strain.

Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja shared seven wickets as West Indies crumpled to a 10-wicket loss in the second test against India. "Very heartening to see the way Rishabh and Ajinkya have approached the innings because both have been patient and very disciplined", India's batting coach Sanjay Bangar told reporters.
