HYDERABAD, India (AP) — Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja shared seven wickets as West Indies crumpled to a ten-wicket loss in the second test against India on Sunday.

Yadav took 4-45 while Jadeja returned 3-12 as West Indies crashed to 127 all out in 46.1 overs in their second innings, leaving a paltry 78-run target for India.

It was man of the match Yadav's maiden ten-wicket (10-133) haul in test cricket.

Lokesh Rahul (33 not out) and Prithvi Shaw (33 not out) made light work of the chase thereafter as India took the series 2-0 in dominant style.

Post tea, West Indies were unable to salvage much from the second innings' wreckage.

Jason Holder (19) added 38 runs with Sunil Ambris (38) for the seventh wicket in what was the best passage of play from the West Indies batsmen.

Jadeja broke through as Holder was caught behind in the 37th over and made it a double blow in two overs when he trapped Ambris lbw.

There was no reprieve thereafter as Yadav and Ravichandran Ashwin (2-24) wrapped up the innings quickly to leave enough overs for India to force a victory on day three.

With little pressure on him, Rahul overcame his bad patch and scored freely. Towards the end, he played out a dramatic over to enable Shaw, India's teenage batting sensation, to hit the winning runs.
