Sachin, Sehwag Congratulate India for Winning Test Series vs WI

Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja shared seven wickets as West Indies crumpled to a 10-wicket loss in the second test against India.

Chasing a paltry 72-run target, openers Prithvi Shaw (33*) and KL Rahul (33*) guided India home easily in just 16.1 overs on the third day of the Test.

However, West Indies had started off well by dismissing India for 367, keeping the first innings lead down to a mere 56 runs.

Umesh Yadav will replace the injured Shardul Thakur in the Indian squad for the first two One-Day Internationals against Windies, the BCCI announced on Tuesday.Thakur suffered a groin injury during the recently concluded second Test against Windies in Hyderabad which was incidentally his Test debut.

It was another dominant performance from India as they continued their good run at home to record their 10th straight Test series win on home soil. Sunil Ambris top-scored with 38, offering some resistance with skipper Jason Holder for the seventh-wicket, but the tourists were bowled out for just 127 in the final session. He was caught by Hope at gully off one that bounced sharply.

Starting their second innings after the interval, West Indies' capitulation began from the second ball.

Coming into Game 2, the Astros in the 2018 postseason had outscored their opponents 18-1 (!) from the seventh inning onward. Price fell one out short of qualifying for the win, which would have been his first in 11 postseason starts.

Towards the end, he played out a dramatic over to enable Shaw, India's teenage batting sensation, to hit the winning runs.

However, a rush of blood saw Hetmyer give Kuldeep Yadav the charge only to be caught by Cheteshwar Pujara at point.

With no addition to the score in the next over, Hope edged one from Jadeja that turned and was taken by Rahane at slip, leaving the Windies on 45 for four an hour after lunch.

Yadav, on the other hand, did his reputation no harm by picking up 10 wickets in a Test match for the first time at Hyderabad.

With two runs added, at 70 for six, Shane Dowrich had his off-stump uprooted by Umesh off the inside edge for a first-ball duck, leaving the Windies tottering on 76 for six at the interval.
