Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja took seven wickets between them as the West Indies collapsed in their second innings for 127, leaving India to knock off the 72 required for victory without loss to win the second Test in Hyderabad.
Resuming on 308-4, India lost their last six wickets for 59 runs, Ajinkya Rahane adding just five runs to end on 80 off 183 balls (seven fours) and Rishabh Pant adding just seven runs as he fell eight short of a second Test century (92 off 134 balls, 11 fours, two sixes).
Ravichandran Ashwin scored 35 off 83 balls but the rest of the Indian tail fell quickly as the hosts were bundled out for 367 in 106.4 overs, a lead of just 56 over the West Indies. Jason Holder took 5-56 and Shannon Gabriel 3-107 as part of a great West Indies fightback with the ball.
Sadly, the visitors couldn’t reprise their first-innings form, losing both openers for ducks, and with Sunil Ambris top-scoring with 38, the West Indies were all out for a dismal 127 off 46.1 overs. Yadav took 4-45 to complete a 10-wicket match haul and claim the Player of the Match honours, while Jadeja took 3-12 off 11 overs (econ 1.09) and Ashwin 2-24.
Prithvi Shaw (33 off 45 balls) and KL Rahul (33 off 53 balls) knocked off the winning runs without undue hassle, taking their partnership to 75 off 16.1 overs to win the match by 10 wickets.
