The Delhi batsman had started the series in 111th position and would be deriving satisfaction from the rankings gain after missing centuries in successive Tests, also dismissed for 92 in the opening match in Rajkot.

Lokesh Rahul (33 not out) and Prithvi Shaw (33 not out) made light work of the chase thereafter as India took the series 2-0 in dominant style.

10 - With this 2-0 win over Windies, India have stretched their lead to 10 matches.

Umesh was quickly gone, too, and Holder took out the middle stump of the elusive Ravichandran Ashwin (35) as India ended their first innings with a lead of just 56 runs. Amongst fast bowlers, only Kagiso Rabada has more (6). "He can bowl you unplayable deliveries every now and then which we experience in the nets all the time", skipper Virat Kohli said of the paceman.

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.

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

"It's a tough series and we didn't play our best cricket".

Sunil Ambris (38) tried to put up a fight but lacked support from the other end as the entire team fell like a pack of cards and could only manage to put on 127 runs, handing India a meagre 72-run target. We look back in the last two years and we have some good results. Of these, Sharma, who played in the quarter-finals of the national ODI tournament, will be available for at least the semis along with Shaw and Rahane, who both featured in the victorious Test squad against the West Indies.

Earlier Yadav, who lost his pace partner in debutant Shardul Thakur due to a groin strain on day one, picked all the three West Indian wickets to fall in the morning after the tourists started the day on 295-7.
