India conquered West Indies via two wickets thanks to Shubman Gill’s 43, and now leads the three-match ODI series 2-0.
India defeated West Indies in the second One-Day International on Sunday by chasing down a 312-run mark in 49.4 overs.
It was a momentous victory for India. With the victory, the Shikhar Dhawan-led team secured an unbeatable 2-0 series victory. Axar Patel (64*, 35 balls), who had been given a challenging target, sparked India’s chase while they were reduced to 205 for five in 38.4 overs and brought the visitors home with two balls remaining. Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer both scored half-centuries.
Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer both hit half-centuries. Shubman Gill, the opener, likewise appeared to be headed for a fifty-plus score until, at 43, he strangely got out to Kyle Mayers.
Gill attempted to sneak the ball of behind wicketkeeper in Mayers’ 16th over, imitating Tillakaratne Dilshan of Sri Lanka. The ball touched the bottom of the bat, travelled up, and fell directly into Mayers’ hands, demonstrating the young player’s abject failure. In the game, West Indies chose to bat first and scored an astounding 311 for six thanks to Shai Hope’s masterful 135-ball 117 and Nicholas Pooran’s 74 off 77 balls, both of which displayed their big-hitting skills.
In response, India got off to a respectable start thanks to Gill (43) and his five boundaries in a 49-ball innings. However, captain Dhawan (13) struggled at the other end. Dhawan was the first one to leave as Mayers made a spectacular catch at third man off a Romario Shepherd bowling.
When Mayers removed a well-positioned Gill and Suryakumar Yadav (9), who formerly more dragged one to his stumps, India was then knocked back. With a 99-run partnership off 94 balls, Iyer and Samson attempted to extend the chase, but once both had left the field, India yet needed 105 runs from 11 overs.
