The ‘NDTV sports’ reports on the 2nd ODI match between the Indian cricket team and West Indies, which resulted in India’s defeat with a score of 181 runs. The match drew attention due to the impressive opening partnership of Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan, even though India’s overall batting performance was disappointing. Shubman Gill’s knock of 34 runs during the match earned him a new record, surpassing Babar Azam of Pakistan in the list of batters with the most runs after 26 innings in the 50-over format. Gill now has 1352 runs to his name, while Babar had 1322 runs after the same number of innings. Other players in the top 5 include England’s Jonathan Trott, Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman, and South Africa’s Rassie van der Dussen.
West Indies captain, Shai Hope, played a crucial role in leading his team to victory, scoring an unbeaten 63 runs and securing a six-wicket victory. This victory helped West Indies level the series and marked their first win against India in nine ODIs in the past four years.
Overall, the match witnessed a remarkable performance by Shubman Gill, but India’s batting collapse led to their defeat at the hands of West Indies. The upcoming match at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad will decide the series winner.
