The Indian cricket team won the complete series in the two-match Test series against West Indies. The men in blue won the second Test against the visitors by a comprehensive margin of 10 wickets on the third day. The Indian cricketers performed brilliantly in all the three formats of the game that lasted for around five days.
Umesh Yadav, gave a stellar performance and became the limelight of the match as he took a 10 wickets haul, including a 6-wicket haul in the first innings with a 4-wicket haul in the second. By doing so, the 30-year-old became only the third Indian pacer in Test cricket history to take 10 wickets in a match.
Kapil Dev was the first cricketers to achieve this milestone, the second cricketer to achieve this milestone Javagal Srinath and now Umesh Yadav has achieved this milestone and this is just the starting, hopefully, the cricketer will went on to break many records and achieve many milestones.
Twitter was flooded with the tweets and messages of appreciation for the Indian cricketer, from cricketers to fans, everyone took to twitter and applauded the performance of Umesh Yadav in the performance.

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

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 clinical performance by India to win the series. Umesh Yadav’s performance in this test was very pleasing and am looking forward to Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant winning matches for India in all conditions. #IndvWI

Umesh Yadav is first India fast bowler to take 10 wickets in a home Test in nearly two decades (since Javagal Srinath vs Pak, Kolkata, 1999). #IndvWI

Umesh Yadav on fire. What a match he’s been having. I see the Test ending today.

Umesh Yadav is the only 3rd Indian pace bowler to take 10 wickets or more in a Test Match in India. The other two are Kapil Dev (Twice), and J Srinath. The last time it happened was in 1999.
