Shaw, Pant shine as India eye big lead against Windies

Paceman Umesh Yadav claimed a match haul of 10 wickets to lead India to a series sweep against the West Indies with a win inside three days in the second Test on Sunday.

India dominated the last two sessions of the third day's play in the second and final Test match to crush West Indies by 10 wickets and complete a series whitewash easily on Sunday.

After conceding the two-match Test series against India, West Indies have suffered a major jolt as their head coach has been handed a two-match ban for inappropriate comments made towards the TV umpire and the fourth official.

A dismal showing left the visiting side dismissed for 127, with Umesh taking 10-wicket haul in the match as India were set just 72 to win.

As soon as team India won the series, twitter was flooded with tweets and posts of appreciation.

"I have very much enjoyed my time with the West Indies and wish the staff and players every success", Law said after accepting the job.

Fast-bowler Umesh Yadav has replaced injured Shardul Thakur in India's ODI squad against West Indies, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Tuesday.

The key wicket of Rahane (80) came just six runs into the opening session as he lobbed to Shai Hope and the in-form Holder trapped Ravindra Jadeja for a duck two balls later.

Twice more the Windies looked to have recovered some composure before losing pairs in quick succession, with Holder gone for 19 and Sunil Ambris for 38.

In a space of 16.1 overs, India lost five wickets for 25 runs to move from a comfortable 314 for 4 to 339 for 9 before Ravichandran Ashwin (35, 83 balls) made a useful contribution.

Towards the end, he played out a dramatic over to enable Shaw, India's teenage batting sensation, to hit the winning runs.
