India Batting and Bowling
India's openers once again started off with a lot of promise but for a change failed this time as Shikar Dhawan fell early. It was a struggle for most of the batsmen on a pitch where bowlers dominated most of the match but a good innings by Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina who made a score of 60 and 44 respectively got them to a respectable total of 229 towards the end. The results favored the windies at this stage as they had chased down a somewhat similar target against the lankans in their first match.
While bowling Ind had a score of 230 to defend which was reasonable but never looked a match winning one. Umesh Yadav was the best highlights of their bowling as he picked up three wickets and was supported well by Ishant Sharma and R Ashwin who picked up two wickets each but towards the end the results slipped away from their grasp as they lost a very close match.
