Shimron Hetmyer slammed a quick half-century to rebuild West Indies's inning while chasing a target of 322 runs set by India in the 2nd ODI. However, the hitman lost his wicket for 94 runs to Chahal, while trying to hit a six.  

The Jason Holder side lost three wickets for just 78 runs. It was then that Hetmyer and wicketkeeper-batsman Shai Hope established a partnership to over 100 runs to bring the team back into the game. 

Hope has also registered a half-century and is going strong against the Indian attack. 

Hetmyer had hit a century in the first ODI to help them set a target of 323 runs which was easily chased down by the Indian team.  

For India, Kuldeep Yadav struck twice while Mohammed Shami managed to take one wicket, so far. 

Skipper Virat Kohli's magnificent unbeaten 157 runs made India dominate the visitors in the starting overs. 

Kohli, who slammed his 37th ODI hundred today, became the fastest cricketer to enter the 10,000 runs club in ODI cricket, surpassing legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
