WI eyeing ODI series win

VISAKHAPATNAM – West Indies have a big opportunity today to achieve a feat they have not accomplished in seven years – beat a major international cricket nation in a One-Day International series.

After winning the first game of the three-match series on Sunday on the back of a double century second wicket partnership between Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope, Kieron Pollard’s team take a 1-0 lead into the match at the Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Stadium.

Should West Indies win the match, it would give them their first ODI series win against a higher rated team since 2012 when they triumphed 4-1 over New Zealand.

India also have a lot at stake. It’s been over 15 years since they last lost two consecutive bilateral ODI series at home. They have also never lost five straight ODIs in India.  (CMC)
