After beating West Indies in the first ODI, India maintained their winning ways in yet another series with a two-nil lead in the second ODI of the three-match series.
It is the first series win for Rohit Sharma as the full-time ODI captain, and this also marked the 11th consecutive bilateral ODI series win of team India against West Indies.
The Indian pacers contributed significantly to this win and made life difficult for the Windies. The bowlers knocked over the Windies batters within 46 overs for 193 runs.
Initially, team India put 237 on board, which is considered below par in the modern ODI game.
India played their full 50 overs and made 237/9 runs. In contrast, West Indies finished their inning within 46 overs, making only 193 runs.
Team India batters KL Rahul made 49 runs, Suryakumar Yadav 64, Deepak Hooda 29 all made a meaningful contribution to the host batting.
Windies’ bowlers Alzarri Joseph 2-36 and Odean Smith 2-29 created an initial scare for the Indians.
There was a 44 runs difference between these two teams.
The West Indies team’s best effort was not good enough as their batters fell short with Shai Hope 27, Shamarh Brooks 44, Akeal Hosein 34, were the major contributors with the bat.
Prasidh Krishna 4-12 was the pick of India’s bowlers.
He struck with two wickets in seven balls with one maiden in two overs in the powerplay.
Rohit Sharma was outstanding with his field placements and changes, and there were no effects of dew.
Sixty-four runs from Suryakumar Yadav helped to put the Indian team in a winning position.
Shamarh Brooks provided hope for the West Indies in the chase though they lost half their side for a mere 76 on the board with a handy 44.
However, he threw his wicket away when he was on the move.
India 237/9 in 50 overs beat West Indies 193 in 46 overs by 44 runs.
