Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul starred with the bat, scoring centuries, while Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami led with the ball which helped India beat the West Indies by 107 runs in the second ODI in Vizag on Wednesday.
Kuldeep Yadav’s second ODI hat-trick and Mohammed Shami’s two wickets in two balls helped India level the three-match series 1-1. The West Indies openers Evin Lewis and Shai Hope gave their side solid start as they scored 56 runs in first 10 overs. Shardul Thakur got India the first breakthrough when he removed Evin Lewis in the 11th over. Pooran scored quick-fire 75 runs, while Hope also completed his fifty to give India some nervy moments. Their stand helped West Indies put up a strong fight but Kuldeep and Shami picked up five wickets in quick succession to derail their mammoth run chase. Eventually, the West Indies were bowled out for 280 runs.
