2nd ODI, Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad 25 June, 2019

Toss won by West Indies (decided to bowl)

India beat West Indies by 105 runs

Man of the Match: Ajinkya Rahane



Match Over: That's it then, India have recorded a comprehensive 105 runs victory in the second ODI to take a 1-0 lead with three matches to go. This is India's biggest ever ODI win in West Indies.


2 overs left now and India are on the verge of a huge 100+ win. India will take a 1-0 lead with 3 matches to go. 


Four: Ashley Nurse hits a boundary off the bowling of Yuvraj Singh to entertain the few left home supporters. This has been a very meek surrender by the home side.


OUT: Jason Holder tried to come down the track and hit the ball out of the park but misses the ball completely and MS Dhoni stumps him. Kuldeep picks his third wicket of the day.


Roston Chase and Jason Holder are keeping West Indies alive with this partnership but it is a lost battle as India are edging towards an emphatic win.


Yuvraj Singh is now being introduced into the attack for India for the first time in the match. Yuvi has take many wickets in the past but can he take few today?


Four: Roston Chase gets onto the back foot and puches the ball past point for a boundary. Umesh has not started well in this over and is sending down poor deliveries which are asking to be hit.


SIX: Umesh starts with a half-volley and Holder hits the ball over long-off for a huge six. Not a great start this by the Indian pacer as it was begging to be hit.


Umesh Yadav is now being introduced into the attack by Virat Kohli as India look to close the match soon.


Ashwin is bowling a lot of leg spinners but he has not been able to control the line and lengths properly. Nor the West Indian batsman have been able to get him away for runs.


West Indies are clearly on the backfoot as they have lost 5 wickets and the target is still miles away. The required rate is above 14 now.  The hosts need a miracle and they need it soon.


Out: R Ashwin gets his first wicket of the day as he traps Carter plumb LBW. West Indies lose their fifth wicket now. West Indies in dire straits now.


Carter and Holder are now trying to stitch a partnership to revive the West Indian chase but the target seem to be too much and could be out of their reach already.


Four: Carter plays the reverse paddle sweep off the bowling off R Ashwin and finds the gap in between backward point and short third man.


OUT: DRS review once again goes in the favour of the Indians as Shai Hope is given LBW for 81. Kuldeep Yadav gets his second wicket for the day. Kohli wraps his hands around Kuldeep to appreciate his DRS call.


India have asked for DRS after Kuldeep Yadav hits the pads of Shai Hope. The Chinaman looked convinced for LBW and so Kohli has gone for the review.


SIX: Shai Hope is keeping the hopes alive as far as home supporters are concerned. The right handers comes down the track and hits the ball inside out for a huge six over extra cover. 


After 25 overs, West Indies are way behind the scoring rate and have score 103/3. They still need 205 to win in 18 overs. T20 batting maybe?


With the run rate going up with every passing over, West Indies need a brilliant knock from somebody else as well apart from Shai Hope who has really batter well so far. But he simply cannot do it all alone.


OUT: Evin Lewis tried to come out of the crease and hit the ball out of the park but missed it completely. Dhoni took no time in removing the bails as Kuldeep gets his first wicket and break this dangerous partnership.


SIX: Kuldeep now bowls short and Hope simply bludgeons the ball on the on side for a huge six. The ball went miles up in the air and the fielder must have thought he had a chance but the ball sailed over him.


50: Shai Hope is playing a great knock at the moment and he notches up his half-century. This is Hope's second half century in the 50-over format of the game.


Four: Overpitched once again from Kuldeep and this time Lewis sweeps Kuldeep for a boundary. Not a good start this for Kuldeep who is giving away many hitting deliveries. 


Four: West Indies are not getting a move on in this chase as Hope hits yet another boundary. The right hander gets down on one knee and sweeps the ball towards fine leg for a boundary. Kuldeep keeps bowling there and Hope keeps sweeping him.


Four: Lewis come dancing down the track and hits the ball towards the cover for a boundary off the bowling of R Ashwin. This is Lewis' first boundary of the innings.


West Indies vs India, 2nd ODI: As It Happened

IND vs WI Preview: India, who dominated with the bat in the rain-affected first One Day International (ODI) match, will look to carry forward their momentum when they take on the West Indies in the second match at the Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain on Sunday. Put in to bat, India made a good start with openers Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane putting up a 132-run partnership. But their efforts went in vain as rain played spoilsport with the match being abandoned. With the sky likely to be overcast during Sunday's match also, both the teams will look to play more attacking cricket from the outset to offset the Duckworth/Lewis method of setting a target.
In the last match, the visitors opted for the strategy of starting slow and keeping wickets in hand for the last. India only managed to score 199/3 in 40 overs before the skies opened up. Because of this, the hosts were given a revised target of 194 runs to chase in 26 overs — a not impossible task. Apart from the openers, skipper Virat Kohli also clicked after a poor show in the summit clash of the Champions Trophy and will look to continue playing with the same momentum. But Yuvraj Singh's patchy form will be a concern for the Indian skipper while going to the second ODI. The bowling department, which consists of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandya, alongside spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav will be hoping for a rain-free day so that they get to flex their muscles in front of an inexperienced West Indies batting line-up.

CONDITIONS: Thundershowers are expected once again and it won't be much of a surprise if this game, just like the first ODI is washed off. Pitches have over the years slowed down in the Caribbean Islands and another slow wicket is expected for the second ODI.

TEAMS: India Squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Rishabh Pant
West Indies Squad: Jason Holder (captain), Jonathan Carter, Miguel Joseph, Alzarri Joseph, Jason Mohammed, Kieran Powell, Kesrick Williams, Devendra Bishoo, Roston Chase, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Rovman Powell.
