India thumped West Indies by 10 wickets inside three days in Hyderabad to complete a 2-0 test series sweep.

Fast bowler Umesh Yadav claimed four scalps to register his maiden 10-wicket match haul as the tourists were bowled out in the final session.

The incident occurred after West Indies opener Kieran Powell had been given out on the third and final day of the second Test. Powell fell to a low catch in the slips by Ajinkya Rahane, and the third umpire ruled that Rahane had caught the ball cleanly after watching numerous replays.

The 30-year-old started West Indies' innings on a hat-trick, having dismissed centurion Roston Chase (106) and Shannon Gabriel off successive balls, and needed just two balls to get the first breakthrough.

For India, it was their 10th series win at home since their last defeat against England in 2012. Openers Prithvi Shaw (33 not out) and Lokesh Rahul (33 not out) guided the side home easily in just 16.1 overs on the third day of the Test.

It has been found in live chickens and raw chicken products, but a single, common supplier has not been identified. The CDC says 2 to 3 people have been affected by this in Virginia.

Sunil Ambris's 38 was the top score in a poor batting display by his team. Shai Hope (28) hit three delightful boundaries off Umesh while Shimron Hetmeyer (17) was trying to be more assertive against spinners in their 39-run stand.

Yadav's heroics stood out after he lost his pace partner in Shardul Thakur due to a groin strain, returning career-best figures of 6-88 in the first innings. After dominating the cricketing stage for so long it is mysterious how we have allowed our cricket to become such a disgrace and an embarrassment.

Law will depart the West Indies set-up after the December tour of Bangladesh to take up a coaching role with Middlesex.

"Umesh is right up there to be featuring in Australia", Kohli told reporters.

The selectors, who had a long meeting in Hyderabad, had earlier announced the 12-man side to face West Indies in the 2nd Test on October 12.
