India 181 (Kishan 55, Motie 3-36, Shepherd 3-37) vs West Indies
Jayden Seales then got his only wicket of the day when a shoulder-height bouncer to India’s stand-in captain Hardik Pandya had him pulling straight to midwicket, before Yannic Cariah foxed the comeback man Sanju Samson with turn and bounce. Landing one on a good length around off stump, Cariah got the legbreak the to jump as well as move considerably away from the right-hander. Samson jabbed at it with a flat bat, only belatedly thinking of letting it go. But by then, it was a little too late, as the outside edge went to the slip fielder Brandon King.
India were sliding, and there came heavy rain. When Suryakumar Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja added 33 runs together to signal a brief recovery period after the stoppage, it seemed like the break was a blessing in disguise. But West Indies seized control again, picking up the last five wickets for just 35 runs. India were bowled out with 9.1 overs still remaining.
Shepherd again pitched short at the left-hander Jadeja, having him top edge a pull to fine leg in the 32nd over. And with Motie getting turn and bounce, he had Suryakumar slashing to point after an entertaining 24. Soon after, came another moment of spectacular fielding from West Indies, when Keacy Carty rushed in and dived forward from deep square leg to dismiss Umran Malik in the 38th over.
Motie wrapped the innings up when he got last man Mukesh Kumar in the 41st, finishing with 3 for 36, and giving West Indies an opportunity to make it 1-1 after a loss in the first ODI on Thursday.
