India vs West Indies, 2018: Five unnoticed things from the second ODI

Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav was the most successful bowler for India with 3-67.

Pune, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram host the remaining matches in the series and seamers Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar will add further attacking threat for Virat Kohli.

Kohli began his 213th ODI needing 81 runs for 10,000, having struck 140 in Sunday's clash in Guwahati, and moved to the milestone with a single off Ashley Nurse before reaching three figures from 106 balls by thrashing Marlon Samuels to the cover fence. However, Sachin Tendulkar had the previous record as he took 259 innings to get there.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the squad for the last three ODIs against West Indies which will be played on October 27, October 30 and November 1 respectively.

"Considering the situation they were in at one point when they (West Indies) were cruising, we are happy as a bowling unit".

This year the number of teams has gone up from six to eight and the upcoming edition will have 29 matches as compared to a four-day event in 2017.

Rishabh Pant was slotted ahead of Dhoni but the plan was dropped at the insistence of Kohli, who relayed a message to the dressing room while he was toying with the opposition's bowlers.

Playing 212 ODIs, Kohli has 9,919 runs at an average of 58.69 to his name with the help of 36 hundreds and 48 half-centuries to his name. Along with this knock, he also became the only 4th Indian and 13th batsman, globally, to achieve this rare feat. After 14 years when I made my debut for the West Indies, I still remember that moment I received the maroon cap before walking onto the Lords Cricket Ground against England in July 2004. While Hetmyer launched a stunning counterassault, Hope played the role of second fiddle to perfection.

A 143-run partnership ensued between Hetmyer and Shai Hope for the fourth wicket as the duo took calculated risks.

However, Chahal had the last laugh when Hetmyer top-edged an innocuous short ball for a skier to Kohli at short cover. West Indies too had a firm reply and ended up scoring 321/7 in 50 overs and the match ended up as a tie.
