Team India won the second ODI by 3 wickets against the Nicholas Pooran-led side to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Heading into the third and final ODI, while Men in Blue will aim to clean sweep the hosts, the Windies will look to avoid the whitewash.
Axar Patel smashed an unbeaten 35-ball 64, his maiden ODI fifty in the second ODI as team India registered a phenomenal series-clinching win over the West Indies.
Chasing a stiff target of 312, the visitors were languishing at 205 for the loss of five wickets in 38.4 overs before Axar Patel launched an assault against the Windies bowlers to revive India’s chase with his ferocious knock to take the visitors home with two balls to spare on Sunday.
Apart from Patel, Shreyas Iyer (63) and Sanju Samson (54) also played vital knocks for India but they got out at crucial junctures, bringing the Windies back into the match.
Speaking of West Indies, Shai Hope’s century in his 100th ODI game went in vain as the hosts lost the game in the last 10 overs when their bowlers started bowling under pressure and let the game slip from their hands.
