India vs Windies 2018: 2nd Test, Day 3 – Umesh Yadav Four-Wicket Haul Guides India to a 2-0 Win

India vs Windies 2018 | 2nd Test | Day 3

Team India fast bowler Umesh Yadav shone with the new ball as India chased down the target to seal the series 2-0 beating Windies by 10 wickets in the second innings of the second Test at Hyderabad.

Meanwhile, Umesh Yadav bagged four wickets while Ravindra Jadeja chipped in with three to set a target of 72 runs. Umesh leads the team out of the park as he ends with 10 for 133. Nothing from the openers, the middle-order batsmen threw it away and India were never in trouble after taking that handy lead. Sunil Ambris and Shai Hope managed to resist for a while as skittled Windies within two sessions.

However, Indian openers Prithvi Shaw and KL Rahul started the chase on a high dominating the Windies bowlers.  They attacked the new ball bowlers to chase down the target within 16 overs with 10 wickets in hand.

Previously, India had a handy lead against a low-on-confident batting line-up but temperamental issues of Windies batsmen again came to the fore with some disappointing strokeplay on display. It all started with Kraigg Brathwaite clipping an innocuous Umesh Yadav delivery on the pads to the ‘keeper.
Kieran Powell struggled for nine deliveries before falling to Ashwin when he edged one to Ajinkya Rahane at first slip. At 6 for 2, Windies were in trouble and needed something special from a shaky middle-order.

Twin strikes in the 27th over – as the pacer went past the defence of Chase and Shane Dowrich – to pin Windies on the mat at 70 for 6. However, Windies lost the plot in the first session after they helped India extend the lead despite losing early wickets.

With sweeping the visitors, India will be high on confidence ahead of the start of the five-match ODI series.
