India's Yadav helps seal 2-0 West Indies series sweep

Prithvi Shaw currently has an average of 102 in Test cricket

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

The young Prithvi Shaw has had a dream start to his senior global career with the Indian team, having scored 237 run in two matches, including a century.

Umesh was India's just second pacer to bag a 10-wicket haul at home in almost two decades.

However, a rush of blood saw Hetmyer give Kuldeep Yadav the charge only to be caught by Cheteshwar Pujara at point. Yet, it was another instance of lack of application from the West Indies batsmen with opener Brathwaite and young Hetmyer playing atrocious shots.

Earlier, India had crushed the tourists by an innings and 272 runs in the first Test at Rajkot.

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

Harvard accused of bias against Asian-Americans at trial
Harvard's current freshman class is almost 23 percent Asian, according to the university's website. Despite the outcome of the trial, both sides are expected to appeal the decision.

Captain Jason Holder spearheaded the attack, bowling superbly to finish with five for 56 - his fifth career five-wicket haul and third in four innings.

He could not bowl and field after that and only came in to bat at number 11, putting on a crucial 28-run last-wicket stand with Ravichandran Ashwin.

Holder first got one to rear up from back of length to shatter Rahane's dreams of a 10th Test hundred. His innings had seven boundaries. Rahane added just five to his overnight score. Shaw once again substantiated that he is ready for bigger opportunities while Pant missed out on scoring yet another century.

With two runs added, at 70 for six, Shane Dowrich had his off-stump uprooted by Umesh off the inside edge for a first-ball duck, leaving the Windies tottering on 76 for six at the interval.

"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.

On Saturday, Mohammed Siraj and Hanuma Vihari were released to play Vijay Hazare quarter-finals for their respective teams Hyderabad and Andhra.
