Fast bowler Prasidh Krishna put on a brilliant display with the ball as India defeated West Indies in the second ODI to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
Defending a modest total of 238, India bundled out West Indies on 193 and won the game by 44 runs.
While Krishna recorded his best figures in ODI cricket – 4/12, Shardul Thakur bagged two wickets.
Deepak Hooda also took his maiden international wicket as the Indian bowlers dominated the proceedings on the sluggish surface of the Narendra Modi Stadium.
Earlier, after being put on to bat, India recovered well from their top-order failure to post a competitive 237/9 in 50 overs. Suryakumar Kumar top-scored with 64 (83) while vice-captain KL Rahul made 49 off 48 balls.
The Rohit Sharma-led India will now look to register a clean sweep over the Windies with a win in the third and last ODI, scheduled to be played at the same venue on Friday.

It might not be your day, but still it’s vital to not lose hope and still find a way. That’s exactly what team India did today. They found a way to win even on an off day. Well played and congratulations @BCCI 👏🏼👏🏼 #INDvWI pic.twitter.com/RyScNPKN0o

In the end, margin of win is big but after first innings it didn’t look that result will be as easy. Well played India and congratulations to Rohit for a winning start! #CricketTwitter

Prasidh Krishna has been terrific with his line & length. Tall bowler who gets extra bounce. Won’t be a bad idea to give him the Test cap. Can be a good option in all conditions

This is India’s 11th successive ODI bilateral series win over the West Indies since Jan 2007.
The last time WI was able to beat India in an ODI series was in May 2006 when they won the series 4-1 in the Caribbean!#IndvWI #WIvInd
