That's It. Shardul Thakur cleans up Jaydon Seales and ends the resistance of the West Indies tail.  They are wrapped up on 151 and India win by 200 runs and seal the ODI series 2-1. The 2nd ODI created some doubt about their performance and what an outing it has been for them in Trinidad. They will return back in action in the 1st T20I on August 3, Thursday.

Out! Finally the partnership is broken. Who else would do that except Shardyl Thakur. He arrives with his golden arm as Alzarri Joseph miscues one of his bouncers straight into the hands of Ishan Kishan. India are one wicket away from victory.

What the top order batters failed to do, West Indies tail has been successful in doing it. Putting together a decent partnership. The wagging tail of the Caribbeans keeps frustrating India. 

02 Aug, 01:32 (IST)

Out! Kuldeep Yadab continues to break through the tail. This time Yannick Cariah gets trapped in front of the wicket and Kuldeep Yadav bags his second. 

02 Aug, 01:24 (IST)

Out! The last recognized batter of West Indies has now also perished. Kuldeep Yadab bamboozles Athanaze with a googly and goes through his gate to clean him up. The little resistance West Indies was building is now broken. 

02 Aug, 00:49 (IST)

Out! West Indies are falling like a pack of cards. India can see victory now as Shardul Thakur strikes again. Romario Shepherd plays one right at the throat of fine leg. 

02 Aug, 00:37 (IST)

Out! Shardul Thakur has entered the picture with his golden arm. Shimron Hetmyer goes for a drive, the ball holds a little and he plays the lofted drive straight into the hands of Suryakumar Yadav. It's now a matter of time before India seals the series. 

02 Aug, 00:30 (IST)

Out! Top catching from Shubman Gill at slips. Gets his finger underneath somehow as Keacy Carty outside edges one from Jaydev Unadkat. India are closing in on the series victory now. 

02 Aug, 00:05 (IST)

Out! The Skipper is gone. It looks like the final nail in West Indies' coffin. Shai Hope slashes at one and Shubman Gill holds on to the catch. Mukesh Kumar seems to be in a hurry as this is his third scalp in a row. 

01 Aug, 23:52 (IST)

Out! Double strike by Mukesh Kumar and looks like he has almost decided the fate of this game. Kyle Mayers is dismissed and India are definitely in control now. It would be a mountainous job for West Indies to recover from this.

India lost the 2nd ODI of the three-match series against West Indies and the series is now levelled as we enter the 3rd and final ODI at Tarouba in Trinidad. West Indies have not qualified for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 but they have competed in the series so far. The spinners Gudakesh Motie and Yannick Cariah have successfully troubled the Indian batters alongside the spicy pace trio of Jaydon Seales, Romario Shepherd and Alzarri Joseph. Batting hasn't been the strongest suit for West Indies and they are heavily relied on captain Shai Hope who played a key role in winning the 2nd ODI alongside youngster Keacy Carty. India rested Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the second match and they didn't bat in the top five in the first ODI. The team management has faced heavy criticism for trying out batters at different spots so close to the World Cup and they will have to make a choice at hand going into the decider. ‘This Is Only Series Before Asia Cup, World Cup..’ Ravindra Jadeja Defends Team India’s Experimentation Ahead of 3rd ODI vs West Indies.

Ishan Kishan has been the only consistent batter for India in this series. He has back-to-back half-centuries in the first two games and has provided reliability at the top of the order. Shubman Gill has had a poor tour so far and desperately needs to finish the series strongly. Suryakumar Yadav now has a long list of failures beside his name and need to prove himself quickly. The bowling has also not been the most probing with Umran Malik failing to make any impact. India will need more contributions from their key players to win and seal the series in their favour. Although the series can only be decided if there is no rain during the 3rd ODI and we can get some action.  Team India Players Meet Dwayne Bravo, His Son Upon Arriving in Trinidad Ahead of IND vs WI 3rd ODI 2023 (Watch Video).

Unfortunately for the fans, like how things has been throughout the tour, there is pretty heavy chances of rainfall during the period of the India vs West Indies 3rd ODI at Tarouba on August 1. The weather forecast for the day shows 73% of precipitation chances during the second and third hours of the match although the weather will seemingly clear out later in the day. As per the predictions, we should expect some heavy showers during the game but if ground staffs can make it possible, we might have a shortened game.
