India beat West Indies by 59 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method in the second ODI at Port-of-Spain in Trinidad last night. By virtue of the win, India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. The first ODI between the two sides was washed out.

The third and final ODI will be played here on Wednesday.

India rode on Virat Kohli’s 120 off 125 balls and Shreyas Iyer’s 71 to post a challenging 279 for seven after opting to bat.

West Indies were then set a revised target of 270 runs to chase off 46 overs under Duckworth-Lewis method after rain interrupted the proceedings for the second time.

In pursuit, the West Indies were on course at 148 for four before they lost their last six wickets for 62 runs to be bundled out for 210 in 42 overs.
