Virat Kohli’s men are once again doing what they are good at, demolishing sides with utmost precision and in a thoroughly professional manner. After ending up as second-best in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Team India quickly shrugged off all the disappointment to put their best foot forward against a relatively inexperienced West Indies outfit. After rain played spoilsport in the opening match of the series, the men in blue responded in emphatic fashion by winning the second ODI by 105 runs at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain. Opener Ajinkya Rahane, who got a chance to play in the absence of Rohit Sharma, played a scintillating knock of 103, hitting his third ODI hundred. Young leg-spinner Kuldeep Yadav too impressed everyone with his skills and finished with impressive figures of three for 50 in nine overs. The ‘Chinaman’ garnered huge accolades from all corners, including skipper Kohli.
On the other hand, Jason Holder’s young side will be hoping for a change in fortunes at the Sir Vivian Richards stadium which will host its first game of the five-match series. The hosts have made two changes in their current squad and brought in two fresh faces -- Kyle Hope and Sunil Ambris for the remaining three ODIs. Hope and Ambris replaced Jonathan Carter and Kesrick Williams in the 13-man squad. (LIVE SCORECARD)
