India won their second ODI against West Indies on Sunday by 59 runs through (DLS) method, at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. Indian skipper Virat Kohli scored a ton once again (his 42nd) with young Shreyas Iyer (71) accompanying him when the team was struggling for a partnership.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar led India’s second innings with a match winning figure of 4-31. The highlight of his spell, however came in the 35th over, when he took an astounding return catch to send Roston Chase home. Chase tried to manage the good length delivery to his leg side which ended up in a leading edge. The Indian pacer dived full-length to his left and took the catch single handed.

Earlier, Virat Kohli won the toss and his decision seemed justified as he dominated the Caribbean bowlers with his showstopping 120 off 125, becoming the second highest Indian run-scorer in ODI format as India completed their batting on 279 for seven.
With rain halting the play, a revised target was set of 270 from 46 overs. West Indies were on top with 179 for four in the 35th over. But Kumar’s two quick wickets crashed their hopes as West Indies were all out on 210 with four overs to spare.
West Indies’ in-form batsman Nicholas Pooran, tried to change the course of the game with his 42 but after his dismissal, panic triggered and the side lost four wickets for just three runs in three overs.
