NORTH SOUND, Antigua – West Indies stunned India by 11 runs in a low-scoring encounter yesterday to snap their losing streak and haul themselves back into the five-match series.

All but written off after struggling to an inadequate 189 for nine off their 50 overs at the Vivian Richards Stadium, the Caribbean side bounced back spectacularly to bowl the tourists out for a shocking 178 with two balls remaining.

At the heart of the effort was skipper Jason Holder, who snatched a career-best five for 27 while fellow fast bowler Alzarri Joseph claimed two for 46.

Opener Ajinkya Rahane topscored with 60 – his fourth consecutive score over fifty – while wicketkeeper MS Dhoni chimed in with 54 but none of the other batsmen showed any enterprise. (CMC)
