The Indian team registered a series-clinching win over the West Indies in the second ODI at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday. Prasidh Krishna was the pick of the bowlers for the men in blue as he scalped 4 wickets and conceded just 12 runs in 9 overs to rattle West Indies and set the tone for India’s win. The fast bowler during his spell bowled two maiden overs which is a rare sight in ODI cricket these days.

Team India dominated in the second ODI as well

Shardul Thakur went for a few in his first spell but managed to make a strong comeback and managed to take a couple of wickets in his spell for 41 runs. Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Hooda, Mohammed Siraj, and Washington Sundar took one wicket each to make sure West Indies never managed to get in the game during the chase.Β

Earlier in the day, Nicholas Pooran, the stand-in skipper in place of an injured Kieron Pollard won the toss and asked the Indian team to bat first. Surprisingly, Rohit Sharma alongside Rishabh Pant came to open the innings for India. This was Pant’s first game as an opening batsman in ODI cricket for the Indian team.

However, the move did not pay off as Rohit Sharma was eventually got dismissed for 5 and Rishabh Pant too departed for 18. Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s struggles with form continued as he managed to score just 18 like Pant. However, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav made a crucial partnership of 92 runs.Β
