The Indian cricket team achieved an extremely easy 10-wicket victory over the Windies in the second Test held in Hyderabad to win the Test series 2-0.

India required just 72 runs to win the match in the second innings and the openers did so with ease, with Prithvi Shaw and KL Rahul remaining unbeaten on 33 each.

Earlier in the day, the Indian bowlers were ruthless as they bowled the Windies out for 127. Umesh Yadav made it ten for the match as he picked up four wickets in the second innings. Ravindra Jadeja bowled extremely well too, picking up three wickets. Kuldeep Yadav and Ravichandran Ashwin chipped in as well, picking up three wickets amongst themselves.

The Windies bowlers had done extremely well in the first innings, with Jason Holder taking charge, picking up five wickets and reducing India from 309-4 to 367 all out.
