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.
Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni contributed as well with his unbeaten 51 off 40 balls while Ambati Rayudu scored 32, batting at number three.
