The second One-Day International (ODI) between India and West Indies will be remembered for long for two reasons, 1) Virat Kohli’s record-breaking 10,000 runs in ODIs and 2) the tie match between the two sides. The Visakhapatnam ODI ended in a tie with Windies scoring 321 for seven in their allotted 50 overs. Needing five off the last ball, Shai Hope smashed a four to snatch victory from India’s hands.

Windies needed 14 runs from the last over. Umesh Yadav, who bowled the last over, did well to deny Windies batsmen the big hits. However, on second ball he conceded a boundary via leg byes that gave Windies some chance. Yadav eventually was hit for a boundary on the last ball by Hope, who finished unbeaten on 123, as Windies tied the match. This was India’s ninth match which ended in a tie and interestingly second in two months. For Windies, it was tenth tied ODI, the most for any team.
