India cruised comfortably to a ten-wicket victory against West Indies after finishing with 75 to no loss. Umesh Yadav stole the show on the day as he picked up 10 wickets in the match set up India’s victory, following Rishabh Pant (92) and Ajinkya Rahane (80) 56-run lead in the first innings. Yadav’s stunning display made the lead of 56, look bigger than it was as he picked up the wicket of Brathwaite with his second ball. Soon, Ashwin struck and then the touring Windies team kept losing wickets at regular intervals.
After the wickets of Chase and Doweich of consecutive balls, Umesh found himself on a hat-trick for the second time in the Test. Ambris with the score of 38 was the highest scorer for the Windies in the second innings as they folded out for a paltry 127, which meant India was chasing 72 to win.
