India’s dream run ends in 2nd ODI

West Indies win by 1 one with a ball to spare as India falter in their 18th run chase in Jamaica.

KINGSTON (Jamaica): India’s dream run while chasing ended on Saturday when the West Indies won the second one day international by a run.

After bundling out West Indies for a paltry 198, India were all out for 198, with Yuvraj Singh bowled in the penultimate ball of the match.
Munaf Patel was his partner.

India needed 11 runs in the last over and Munaf rotated the strike off the first ball itself to give Yuvraj a chance to have a go.

Yuvraj then hit two fours in successive balls taking his total to 93 and a win only two runs away. But immaturity came calling as Yuvraj made a wild attempt to heave the ball on the onside but was bowled.
The Series has now been leveled 1-1. India won the first match by 5 wickets.

Earlier, Dravid again won the toss and opted to chase. Ramnaresh Sarwan’s was the only respectable score on the WIndies board. Windies were reeling at 43-4 and 106-5. Sarwan, who was instrumental in two key partnerships which gave the West Indian total some amount of respectability, was adjudged the ma of the match.

He made 98 and was unlucky not to complete the century as his partner Jerome Taylor could not rotate the strike in the last over.

The batsmen never really got an upper hand as Indian bowlers were right on the spot.

Irfan Pathan, who began wayward in the first ODI, and Agarkar, were the pick of the bowlers. Pathan took 3-45 and Agarkar 2-25. Agarkar accounted for the centurion of the last game Chris Gayle for a duck. Lara’s poor run continued . He only made 14.

India once again tested the Dravid and Sehwag combination but both got out early. Bradshaw got the wickets of Dravid, 11, and Sehwag, 12.

The Third ODI will take place at St kitts on Tuesday.
