WATCH: India takes two successful reviews in the 2nd ODI against West Indies

India managed to comprehensively trump the West Indies in the 2nd ODI to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series.


West Indies never looked in contention to win the match after Indian batsmen put on 310-5 from their 43 overs, in a rain curtailed match. Barring Shai Hope (81), no other West Indies player looked in good touch. There were some useful contributions lower down the innings from Jason Holder and Roston Chase, but that was not enough for West Indies to avoid a thumping defeat.

Well, a good thing from Indian perspective apart from their great batting performance was the use of DRS. Indian team used the review twice in the game during West Indies and got in right on both the occasions.

Once, in the starting West Indies opener Kieran Powell who edged the ball was given out by the TV umpire after Indian team appealed for caught behind and later Shai Hope who was batting sensibly was declared out LBW by the third umpire.

On both these occasions the on-field umpires had to reverse their decisions.
