The second one-day international cricket match between India and West Indies took place yesterday in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. All-rounder Shivam Dubey was eliminated as the only change in the Indian squad, with Shurdul Tagore added.
West Indies captain Pollard, who won the toss, called on India to bat first.
Accordingly, Lokesh Rahul and Rohit Sharma were India’s openers. Although Visakhapatnam was heaven for pitching, both of them kept a few overs. Then Lokesh Rahul Pillaiyar hit the boundary off Cottrell for 2 and a six off Holder’s delivery. Rohit Sharma played a little more patiently. He scored only 16 runs in his first 30 balls. India’s run rate has gone up.
The alliance which had built a strong foundation had to be broken when it reached 156. Headmire left the line with an easy catch by Rohit Sharma at 70. Taking advantage of this precious opportunity, Rohit Sharma completed the 28th century. Lokesh Rahul followed with his 3rd century.
Rahul made 102 (104 balls, 8 fours, 3 sixes) while the team scored 227 runs (37 overs).
Captain Virat Kohli (0) was disappointed with the loss of the first ball. Pollard became a silk catcher on the edge of the bat when the goalie hit the ball, which was slowed down as a shotput. After this came Shreyas Iyer.
After the Century, Rohit Sharma took a shower. Rohit Sharma had the opportunity to hit the 4th double century but unfortunately was out in the 44th over. Rohit Sharma was out for 159 (138 balls, 17 fours, 5 sixes).
Rudra crossed the line with Shreyas Iyer and young wicketkeeper Rishabh Bund. Bund, who flew 2 sixes in Aljari Joseph’s over, splashed 2 sixes, 3 fours in a single over from ‘Salute King’ Cottrell and amassed more than 24,000 fans. Shreyas Iyer also failed to punish West Indies bowling. Bulldogs bowler Rostan Chasein made four sixes and a boundary.
Their extraordinary batting surpassed that of India, which was expected to reach 350 runs. Rishabh Bond scored 39 off 16 balls (3 fours, 4 sixes) and Shreyas Iyer (6 fours) and 53 off 32 balls (3 fours, 4 sixes).
In the end, India was bowled out for 387 for 5 wickets. This is the highest score of a team on the field. It is noteworthy that in the last 10 overs, India has collected 127 runs.
The West Indies took the wickets at regular intervals to take the mega target. The hero of the previous game, Hedmeyer (4 runs) desperate for a 3rd run and fell in the run-out. After losing three wickets for 86 runs, wicketkeeper Shai Hopp and Nicholas Pooran rescued the team from the slump.
India’s fielding is not mesmerizing. Rahul wasted no chance of catching a slip before Shai Hope opened the run account. Deepak Sahar missed the ball which was lifted when Puran was 22. As a result, the duo retreated to Indian bowling for a while. But when the couple split, the game returned to India. Puran was caught at 75 (47 balls, 6 fours, 6 sixes). Captain Pollard (0) did not attack. Kuldeep Yadav’s hat-trick set a record of three players, including Shai Hope (78 runs, 85 balls, 7 fours, 3 sixes) in his rotation.
In the end, the West Indies were all out for 280 in 43.3 overs. India won by 107 runs. Rohit Sharma was named man of the match.
With this victory, the Indian team won the three-match series 1-1. West Indies won the first match in Chennai. The third and final one-day match, which will determine who the series is, will take place in Cuttack on the 22nd.
