West Indies set India 312 to win the 2nd ODI
Port of Spain – West Indies reached 311 for six from their allocation of 50 overs against India in the second One-day International on Sunday at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad, after they decided to bat.
The highlight of the innings was a 13th ODI hundred for Barbados Pride wicketkeeper-batsman Shai Hope, playing in his 100th ODI. It was only his second ODI hundred in the Caribbean.
“I am filled with emotions,” Hope said in a TV interview during the interval between innings. “I am pleased to be here representing West Indies. As a child, you want to grow up and play for West Indies, and to get 100 games under my belt, and a hundred in my 100th game, means a lot to me.”
Hope, 28, became the fourth West Indies batsman to score a hundred in his 100th ODI following in the footsteps of compatriot Sir Gordon Greenidge, the self-proclaimed “Universe Boss”, Chris Gayle, and Ramnaresh Sarwan.
West Indies 311 for six off 50 overs (Shai Hope 115, Nicholas Pooran 74, Kyle Mayers 39, Shamarh Brooks 35, Romario Shepherd 15 not out, Rovman Powell 13; Shardul Thakur 3-54) vs India.
