The Men in Blue locked horns with the Caribbean side in the second ODI of the three-match series on Wednesday, February 9, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Having already won the first ODI comfortably by 6 wickets and taking the lead in the series, the hosts had the visitors' back against the wall, especially thanks to the ominous form of skipper Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav. The bowlers had also done a phenomenal job of bundling out the Caribbeans within 43.5 overs and paved the way for the team's easy triumph.
The West Indies team, which had to turn on their survival mode, had luck in their favour as they won the toss, and Nicholas Pooran who got the opportunity to captain the team for the first time, opted to chase on a pitch that had favoured the chasing team 4 out of 5 previous occasions.
