India vs West Indies 2nd ODI Highlights: Windies manage tie with last ball four by Hope. The Indian cricket team got off to a poor start on Wednesday after skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam. Rohit Sharma who had scored a century in the last game got out cheaply to Kemar Roach. However, Virat Kohli’s masterclass knock and Ambati Rayudu’s half-century helped the Indian side to a strong total. The target for visitors is 322.
The visitors, on the other hand, had a decent game in Guwahati. Kieran Powell scored a swift fifty from the top while Shimron Hetmyer sizzled with his hard-hitting ton. However, both these batsmen departed early after reaching their respective milestones. Even though Windies’ pacers impressed, the spinners leaked too many runs too easily. Jason Holder will have to bring something miraculous out of his players to beat this Indian side.
