Umesh Yadav Gets the Hero Treatment After His Maiden 10-Wicket Haul Against West Indies
Take a bow, sir.
Right-arm pacer Umesh Yadav rose to the occasion as he bagged his maiden 10-wicket haul (6/88 and 4/45), bundling out Windies for a mere 126 in 46.1 overs in the second innings.
As a result, India was given a target of 72 which was chased down by the openers KL Rahul (33*) and Prithvi Shaw (33*) before the end of Day 3.
The 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw ended the series as the highest run-getter and was adjudged the man of the series.
Yadav, on the other hand, earned the man of the match award for his magic with the red ball and Twitter was all praises for his performance.

Twice in the same game Umesh was on a hattrick. Interestingly, 17 out of the 26 wickets have fallen to pacers in this game. #IndvWI

Extremely top effort from Umesh Yadav to take a ten-fer in a test at home. The fact that among fast bowlers only the greats Kapil Dev and Srinath have done it at home shows how rare a feat this is #INDvWI

Another crushing win for India. To start favourites is one thing, to treat the opposition like that quite another. Delighted for Umesh Yadav.
