India vs West Indies 2nd Test: It was the second time in the match that pacer Umesh Yadav was on a hat-trick but he was not able to get it again in the ongoing second Test against Windies in Hyderabad. He first picked up Roston Chase with a ball that came back in sharply to rattle the stumps when Windies were on 68/4. Chase was out for six. Umesh then picked up another wicket with the first ball of his next over and it was the wicket of Shane Dowrich for a duck. With Dowrih there was a bat-pad involved before the ball went on to hit the stumps.
Here are the two wickets.
Earlier, Umesh Yadav had picked up a career-best six-wickets in the first innings and it seems his good form has continued in the second innings as well, where he has picked up three wickets already by Tea on Day 3.
Meanwhile, Windies captain Jason Holder picked up a five-wicket haul to bundle out India for 367. Not only did he pick up five wickets to become the bowler with the highest number of wickets in 2018 (As of October 14) but also broke a 100-year-old record. Jason Holder’s bowling average of 11.87 this year is the best for any fast bowler in a calendar year in the last 100 years (30+ wkts). He went past former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar to the phenomenal record. In the third place in the coveted list is former Kiwi great Sir Richard Hadlee. Earlier, the Windies captain also hit a half-century with the bat. He finished with figures of 56/5 to finish India for 367 runs.
Earlier, Windies won the toss and opted to bat first, they scored 311 runs. For India, Pant and Rahane missed out on hundreds, so did Prithvi Shaw who was out for 70.
