New Delhi: India beat West Indies by 48 runs in the second ODI at the Ferozeshah Kotla here Saturday to level the 5-match ODI series 1-1.
Chasing a 264-run target, West Indies were cruising at one stage as they were 170 for two in the 36th over before their innings fell apart on a sluggish Ferozshah Kotla track. The Caribbean side lost their last eight wickets for just 45 runs to be all out for 215 in 46.3 overs.
Mohammed Shami (4/36) recorded his career-best figures while all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja (3/44) and leg-spinner Amit Mishra (2/40) snared five wickets between them as the inept technique of the Caribbeans against spinning deliveries was exposed thoroughly.
Earlier, electing to bat, India posted a competitive 263 for seven as Suresh Raina hit a sparkling 62 while Virat Kohli (62) returned to form with his first half-century in eight months.
Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni contributed as well with his unbeaten 51 off 40 balls while Ambati Rayudu scored 32, batting at number three.
