India vs West Indies 2nd ODI Match Highlights:
Shai Hope led the West Indies cricket team to a resounding victory over India by six wickets. This win brought them back on level terms in the three-match series. Captaining his side, Hope played a pivotal role by scoring an unbeaten 63 off 80 balls. Keacy Carty also made a significant contribution with his score of 48* off 65 balls, aiding the West Indies in successfully chasing down their target of 182 runs in just 36.4 overs. During India's innings, Shardul Thakur took three wickets while Kuldeep Yadav managed to dismiss one batsman, giving hope to India despite their low-scoring performance. However, it was West Indies' impressive bowling that folded India for only 181 runs in just 40.5 overs after they had opted to field first. Initially, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan built a strong foundation for India by putting up a partnership of 90 runs for the opening wicket. Unfortunately for them, once this partnership was broken, their entire innings collapsed like a house of cards. Gill was dismissed first after scoring an impressive knock of 34 off just 49 balls. Alick Athanaze then displayed exceptional fielding skills to grab a stunning catch and dismiss Ishan Kishan who had scored at run-a-ball pace with his knock of 55 runs. Subsequently, Axar Patel, Hardik Pandya and Sanju Samson all fell quickly and could only manage single-digit scores.
