India were all out for 367 in the first innings on day three of the second Test match against West Indies in Hyderabad on Sunday.

Chasing a paltry 72-run target, openers Prithvi Shaw (33*) and KL Rahul (33*) guided India home easily in just 16.1 overs on the third day of the Test.

Paceman Umesh Yadav also played a part in India's domination with his career-best figures of 6-88 that helped bowl out the West Indies for 311 early in the morning session.

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

Talking of domination, India also extended their consecutive series win record over the Windies to seven and their unbeaten run in Test matches against the same opposition to 21 - it started back in 2002.

Openers Kraigg Brathwaite and Kieran Powell were both out for a duck in Windies' second innings, with Sunil Ambris (38) top-scoring as Umesh claimed 4-45.

And there was time remaining in the evening session for Prithvi Shaw (33) and Lokesh Rahul (33) to seal victory.

Holder knocked over Ajinkya Rahane for 80 in the third over after the right-hander had added just five to his overnight score.

Starting their second innings after the interval, West Indies' capitulation began from the second ball.

Hamilton was far from convincing and alongside a few misses down the leg side he dropped Pant on 24 off Gabriel.

Shai Hope then scored a gritty 28 before falling to Jadeja's guile.

India's domination at home started with a 4-0 thrashing of Australia in 2012/13 and it was followed by series wins over West Indies (2-0 in 2013/14), South Africa (3-0 in 2015/16), New Zealand (3-0 in 2016/17), England (4-0 in 2016/17), Bangladesh (1-0 in 2016/17), Australia (2-1 in 2016/17), Sri Lanka (1-0 in 2017/18), Afghanistan (1-0 in 2018) and West Indies (2-0 in 2018/19). In the first innings, whenever Kohli brought Umesh on, he obliged his captain with a wicket.

But Holder feathered a catch behind off Jadeja to end the stand, and the last four wickets fell for 19 runs as the end came swiftly.
