West Indies level series
Hosts West Indies levelled their four match one day international
series with India here on Sunday with an emphatic eight-wicket victory,
despite a magnificent 95 runs by Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Dhoni struck six fours and two sixes from 130 balls, as he almost
single-handedly led an Indian revival, but West Indies’ final target of
189 in 50 overs was never going to be treacherous.
India bowled steadily, but West Indies reached the target with 95
balls to spare, following a workmanlike 85 from 102 balls from Runako
Morton, and a typically robust 64 from 46 balls from Chris Gayle.
India had won the high-scoring, opening match last Friday by 20 runs
at the same venue.
