Suryakumar Yadav scored a neat 64, while Prasidh Kumar picked up 4/19 to power India to a 44-run victory in the second one-day international match against the West Indies at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday.
Suryakumar Yadav's fifty and Player-of-the-Match Prasidh Krishna's spell of 4/12 from nine overs helped India defeat the West Indies by 44 runs to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match one-day international series at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad today.
Chasing 238 to level the series, West Indies faltered at the start as speedster Krishna knocked off Brandon King and Darren Bravo inside the first 10 overs, reducing the visitors to 38/2. Shai Hope helped steady the ship, collecting 27 runs from 53 balls before being dismissed by Yuzvendra Chahal just before the drinks break. Krishna struck again a little after the break when he removed Nicholas Pooran. West Indies were able to add just 10 more runs to the board before India struck again, with Shardul Thakur sending Jason Holder back.
