India is currently playing West Indies in the ODIs and the series is currently levelled 1-1 with the Caribbeans strongly back in the series after winning the 2nd ODI. They won the 2nd ODI comprehensively by six-wickets and it will definitely boost their morale to take on the challenge of India to win the series in the 3rd and final ODI at Tarouba, Trinidad. India rested Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the 2nd ODI and gave opportunities to Axar Patel and Sanju Samson, who batted three and four. India had a good start but then they suffered a collapse. Suryakumar Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja tried to salvage a partnership but failed to get a strong finish ending with just 181 on the board. West Indies had a shaky start to the chase but captain Shai Hope and youngster Keacy Carty put together a 91-run partnership to take them over the winning line. Except Shardul Thakur and to some extent Kuldeep Yadav, none of the Indian bowlers could trouble the West Indies batter.
