India West Indies 2nd ODI


India loses by one run in the 2nd ODI

All-rounder Dwayne Bravo bowled Yuvraj Singh with two balls to spare and West Indies defeated India by one run in a thrilling second one-day cricket international at Sabina Park on Saturday.
Yuvraj had steered the visitors chase with a brilliant 93 but he was last out as India was bowled for 197 off 49.4 overs. West Indies totaled 198 for nine off 50 overs on the back of a gritty, unbeaten 98 from Ramnaresh Sarwan, who was named man of the match. Indias bowlers were impressive with the new-ball pair of Ajit Agarkar (two for 25) and Irfan Pathan (3-45) setting back West Indies early. Offspinners Ramesh Powar (2-38) and Harbhajan Singh (1-32) helped maintain Indias stranglehold throughout the innings.
Samuels, whose 19 took 53 balls, eventually edged to Dhoni off Yuvrajs spin. Dwayne Bravo followed for a duck, clipping Powar to a diving Raina at midwicket. Carlton Baugh injected some life in the innings with 21 off 17 balls and Sarwan accelerated toward the end as West Indies scored 71 runs off the last 10 overs. The 25-year-old Sarwan, in his 99th match, struck seven fours and one six but just missed out on reaching his third one-day century


India won the toss and decided to field
198 for 9 (50.0 overs)
197 all out (49.4 overs)

The Venue

Sabina Park, Jamaica

Sabina Park, the home of the Kingston Cricket Club, is situated in the driest part of Kingston and for many years the pitch was one of the hardest and fastest in the Caribbean. But in recent years the surface slowed, despite attempts to restore life by relaying it on more than one occasion.
The ground is set among a mix of offices, and houses. The George Headley stand which dominates the south end, and the ground, holds 8,000. Going eastwards, you meet the "grounds" section. Uncovered and populated by the "true cricket fans", as opposed to those who can afford the stands, this is the equivalent of Bay 13, or the Rude Boy stand in Antigua. Hisses and boos of disapproval are likely to begin here, and any non- performing player will feel the wrath of their tongue. Definitely a lively place, copious consumption of the local beer, Red Stripe, adds a lively and friendly atmosphere (the concept of drunk and disorderly does not appear at matches). This is where the vendors of cooked food and other delights are most likely to be found plying their trade.
