After suffering a humiliating defeat at the hands of West Indies in the first match of the five-match series, India bounced back in the second ODI to level the series on Saturday.

In the last fixture, MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first. The defending world champions managed 263 runs for the loss of seven wickets from 50 overs. It was Virat Kohli (62) and Suresh Raina's (62) knock in the middle, followed by the skipper's unbeaten 51 that helped India reach that total.

In reply, the visitors were given a good start by their opening batsmen Dwayne Smith and Darren Bravo. The latter's dismissal saw Kieron Pollard walk into the crease and the all rounder added another 40 runs.

However, West Indies suffered a quick collapse as they lost the last seven wickets for 45 runs. Mohammed Shami was the star player with the bowl picking up four wickets, which saw him being named the Man of the Match.

West Indies were bowled out for 215 runs as India won the match by 48 runs. Dhoni and his men would be hoping to emulate their form in the ODI at Visakhapatnam on Tuesday.

It is still not clear if the weather and ground conditions will be suitable for the match after Cyclone Hudhud's battering of the Southern part of India, and especially Visakhapatnam, on Sunday. The weather report shows no sign of rain on Tuesday and this should be a welcome boost for both sides.
