MATCH HIGHLIGHTS IND vs WI 2nd ODI Vizag
IND vs WI 2nd ODI Match Highlights from Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam: Hat-trick hero Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami backed the efforts of the Indian batsmen as the hosts beat West Indies by 107 runs in the second ODI that was played at the VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. India have thus levelled the three-match series 1-1 and the decisive third ODI will be held in Cuttack on Sunday.
The West Indies were set a target of 389 by India with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul scoring centuries as part of a 227-run opening stand. The visitors started the chase well with a 61-run stand between Shai Hope and Evin Lewis. Shardul Thakur got the breakthrough off the last ball of the 11th over with Lewis mistiming a pull right down the throat of Shreyas Iyer.
Shimron Hetmyer, who scored 139 in the previous match, replaced Lewis but his stay didn’t last long primarily thanks to a brilliant fielding effort from Shreyas. He first stopped the ball from racing to the boundary in extraordinary fashion, tumbled over the ropes and recovered before gathering the ball and completing a gun throw to the non-striker’s end. Jadeja, who was bowling the over, collected the throw and whipped away the bails promptly to complete the run-out. Hetmyer could only make four runs off seven balls.
