Virat Kohli with a sublime 120 and Bhuvneshwar Kumar's 4 wicket haul helped India to beat West Indies by 59 runs in the second ODI at Port of Spain on Sunday.
India, electing to bat first after winning the toss in the second ODI, put up 279/7 in 50 overs. Chasing 280, which would have been a record for the highest successful run chase at this venue, West Indies got off to a good start. Chris Gayle broke Brian Lara’s record to become the highest run-getter for West Indies in ODIs but was dismissed soon after. The target was revised to 270 in 46 overs after a rain delay. West Indies were all out in the 42nd over, falling short by 59 runs.
Earlier, Virat Kohli got out after scoring his 42nd century. He stitched a 125-run partnership with Shreyas Iyer for the fourth wicket. Shreyas Iyer notched up his third ODI fifty on return before being outwitted by Jason Holder in the 46th over. Rishabh Pant got out to a reckless shot again. The Indian openers failed to make a mark in the second ODI. West Indies will chase 280 for victory.
The Windies never looked in control of the game and barring Evan Lewis' 65 and Nicholas Pooran's 42, none of the batsman got respectale scores. Mohammad Shami, Khalil Ahmed and Kuldeep Yadav chipped in with important wickets to keep India in a strong position.
India will now play the hosts at the same venue on 14th August in the 3rd and final ODI.
