Visakhapatnam, October 24: Shai Hope produced his career's best-ever effort while in-form Shimron Hetmyer played another explosive knock of 94 as the second ODI between India and West Indies ended in a tie here on Sunday (October 24).
Hope notched up his second ODI ton and remained unbeaten at 123* in the massive run chase of 321 as the last-ball thriller couldn't get a result. With 13 needed from the final over, Umesh (1/78) ended up conceding 12 runs as Hope got a boundary on the final ball when the tourists needed 5. India captain Virat Kohli couldn't hide his frustration as batsman got a boundary to level the scores.
Openers Kieran Powell (18) and Chandrapaul Hemraj (32) gave their team a decent start in the run chase before Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav gave the tourists quick three quick jolts. But
The batting exploits of Hope and Hetmyer ensured the visitors remained ahead in the run chase, however, the Indian bowlers pulled things back in the final overs to contain the tourists. The duo stitched a partnership of 143 for the fourth wicket and kept themselves in the hunt. Had the duo overhauled the target, it would have been their biggest-ever run chase in the fifty-over format.
Kuldeep Yadav (3/67) was the pick of the bowlers for the Indians as the chinaman picked up three wickets and brought the hosts back in the game after getting the wicket of Rovman Powell (18). Yuzvendra Chahal (1/63) and Ravindra Jadeja (1/49) also bowled well while Mohammed Shami (1/59) proved slightly expensive as bowling seemed tough after the dew factor came into play.
Earlier, India captain Virat Kohli became the fastest man to reach 10,000 ODI runs and slammed his second consecutive century in the series as India reached 321/6 batting first.
Kohli (157* off 126 balls) and Ambati Rayudu (73 off 80 deliveries) were the top scorers for the hosts after openers - Rohit Sharma (4) and Shikhar Dhawan (29) - were dismissed cheaply in the first powerplay.
MS Dhoni (20), Rishabh Pant (17) and Ravindra Jadeja (13) failed to live up to the reputation in the middle overs on a track where batting wasn't easy in the first innings.
India scored 100 runs in the final 10 overs with Kohli scoring the bulk of runs for the hosts after captain Kohli elected to bat first after winning the toss. It was his batting exploit in the final 10 overs that took India to a respectable total. It seemed the hosts had scored 25-30 extra runs but the track became conducive of batting in the second innings. India must now be mulling that they should have opted to chase.
As it happened:
Virat Kohli, Man of the Match: It was a great game of cricket, great to be part of it. Full house and Windies showed great fight. Beautiful partnership between both those guys and in the end it was a fair result. I'm pretty proud of my milestone.
Virat Kohli has been named the man of the match for his unbeaten knock of 157* which propelled India to 321.
This is the second tied ODI encounter between India and Windies. This is India's second tied game in four games.
It's a tie! Windies managed to score 12 runs from the final over as Shai Hope gets a boundary on the final delivery of the match. Shai Hope remains unbeaten at 123 and he must be proud of his efforts.
Hope takes a single on the final ball of the over and retains the strike. The visitors now need 14 from the last 6 balls. It's going to be a last over thriller. All hopes from Hope!
0, W,0,1,0,1! 2 runs conceded by Chahal from his final over and Windies are 302/6 in 48 overs. 20 needed from 12 balls. Nurse and Hope are present in the middle. The visitors need to finish it like a T20 game.
Run Out! Lack of communication between the batsmen costs Jason Holder his wicket as he departs for 12. Windies 300/6 after 47.2 overs. But Hope is still present into the middle.
300 comes up for Windies in 47 overs and they need 22 more to win this game off 18 overs. Umesh bowled three dot balls and gifted a boundary on the fourth delivery to bring pressure back on his team.
Hundred! Shai Hope slams a fine ton off 113 deliveries. This has been a match-winning effort from the right-handed batsman. He should finish this game for his team from here.
8 runs, including a six, came from the final over bowled by Kuldeep Yadav. Windies reached 277/5 after 44 overs, they are still in this game because settled batsman in Shai Hope is present into the middle and Jason Holder has also kept his wicket intact.
1,1,1,1,1,1! 6 runs came from that over bowled by Chahal and Windies reach 267/5 in 42 overs. They need 55 more from 48 balls. Shami has been brought into the attack but the pacers have been pretty expensive for India.
Wicket! Kuldeep Yadav gets rid of Rovman Powell for 18 as he failed to read the googly to edge it and Rohit Sharma takes a sharp catch at slip cordon. WI - 253/5 after 37.3 overs. The tourists are still in control of this run chase.
4,1,1,1,6,0! 13 runs leaked by Umesh from that over. Wayward bowling form an experienced bowler like him as they need to stop the flow of runs. Windies - 239/4 after 35 overs. Short-pitched deliveries aren't helping him. Where are the yorkers?
Big Wicket! Yuzvendra Chahal gets rid of dangerous Shimron Hetmyer for 94 off 64 deliveries. The youngster is caught by Kohli at point and a big partnership has been broken. WI- 221/4 after 31.5 overs. The tourists are still in control as they need 101 runs more to win this one.
Fifty! Shai Hope brings up his 7th ODI half-century, this one came at a crucial time and team would be hoping he takes them home with dangerous Hetmyer. The crowd at Visakhapatnam is silent for quite some time as wickets have dried up for the Indians.
Windies have reached 187/3 after 28 overs. The partnership between Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer is worth 109. These two are looking to take the game away from the Indians.
4,6,6,1,1,0 = 18 runs came from that over bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal. Shimron Hetmyer are going strongly in this run chase as they have reached 180/3 in 26 overs. Pressure on the Indian bowlers as their spinners are being punished.
Fifty! Shimron Hetmyer notches up his fifty with a maximum off Chahal. The youngster has already smashed FIVE sixes off 41 balls. This youngman is certainly going to draw the attention of IPL franchises in the IPL auction. It isn't going to be easy for the Indians to defend this total as dew factor is troubling bowlers.
SIX! Hetmyer hammers Jadeja over midwicket for another maximum, he's continued his form from the previous game. With that 6 came 50-run stand between him and Hope. Windies are 134/3 after 21 overs, this is going to be an interesting run chase.
Yuzvendra Chahal has been introduced by skipper Kohli in the 20th over and conceded just 1 from it. Two consecutive tidy overs from the spinners. Windies are 125/3 after 20 overs.
West Indies are going strongly in the run chase despite losing three wickets. They have reached 116/3 after 17 overs. Shai Hope (33*) and Shimron Hetmyer (20*) have forged a partnership of 38 runs between them so far.
Wicket! Kuldeep comes into the attack and strikes again as Marlon Samuels has been clean bowled for 13. Windies have lost their third wicket now.
12 runs leaked by Kuldeep from his first over as he was hit for 3 boundaries and also picked up a wicket. WI - 74/2 after 10 overs.
Wicket! Kuldeep Yadav gets a breakthrough and it was the wrong 'un from the chinaman the got him the wicket. Hemraj failed to read the ball and was cleaned up for 32. Windies have lost their second wicket but runs are coming in quickly for the tourists.
Wicket! Mohammed Shami draws the first blood for the hosts as he gets rid of Kieran Powell for 18. Rishabh Pant takes a well-judged catch in the deep. WI- 36/1 after 6.1 overs.
Windies batters Kieran Powell and Chandrapaul Hemraj open innings and Mohammed Shami starts with the new ball for the hosts.
End of the innings! India post 321/6 in stipulated 50 overs another dominating effort from the skipper as he single-handedly guided his team to a big total here tonight. India scored 100 runs in the final powerplay and Kohli alone scored 68 runs from that.
150! Virat Kohli completes 150 runs in this innings and it is the 4th occasion when he's touched 150. Take a bow!
Wicket! Ravindra Jadeja (13) skies McCoy but couldn't get enough distance and Keiran Powell pouches him at long-on. India are 7 down now in 48.5 overs.
Most ODI 100s at a venue for Kohli: Four in Mirpur (13 innings) Three in Colombo RPS (8) Three in Vizag ADC-VDCA (5) Most 100s vs WI in ODIs: 6 V KOHLI 5 H Gibbs/ Hashim Amla/ AB de Villiers 4 S Tendulkar/ J Kallis/ Babar Azam
That's Century #37 for Virat Kohli. Back-to-back centuries from the skipper and he continues his supreme form at Vizag.
Wicket! Rishabh Pant has been dismissed for 17 in his first ODI innings. The left-handed batsman was trapped in front as India lost their 5th wicket.
Innings taken to each milestone by Kohli: 1000: 24 2000: 53 3000: 75 4000: 93 5000: 114 6000: 136 7000: 161 8000: 175 9000: 194 10000: 205
Wicket! MS Dhoni disappoints with the bat again as he's been bowled for 20. He was looking in sublime form but deceived by McCoy with his pace. India are 222/4 in 40.2 overs.
Kohli is the 5th India to enter 10000 run club!
Kohli becomes the fastest to score 10000 runs in ODIs, becoming the 5th Indian, 10th player from subcontinent, and 13th player overall to reach the landmark. He's done it 54 innings faster than Tendulkar, 68 innings faster than Dhoni, his current partner in this innings. #INDvWI pic.twitter.com/enEdJrgAED— The Cricket Prof. (@CricProf) October 24, 2018
Milestone! VIRAT KOHLI breaks Sachin Tendulkar's record to fastest 10000 ODI Runs. He's been greeted into the middle by Dhoni - the man who entered the elite club before Kohli.

13th batman & 5th Indian
Wicket! Well set Ambati Rayudu departs for 73 as he's clean bowled by Ashley Nurse while he was trying to slog sweep the spinner. India have lost their 3rd wicket for 179 and the century-plus stand has been broken.
Four! And Rayudu too brings up his half-century with that boundary off McCoy. This is his 9th ODI fifty and the captain on the other end congratulates the Hyderabadi batsman.
Reprieve! Virat Kohli (44*) top-edges McCoy at long-off and Jason Holder dropped the catch while running backward. India captain gets a breather as he was never in control of that shot. This catch should have been taken. India 118/2 after 23 overs.
100 comes up for the Indians in the 20th over. India - 103/2 after 20 overs. Kohli - 41* Rayudu - 28*

50-run partnership between Kohli and Rayudu. India 95/2 after 18 overs. The tourists have maintained some pressure on the Indians though.
After 16 overs, India have reached 81/2. Ashley Nurse and Devendra Bishoo are being operated by Windies skipper Holder to ensure Kohli and Rayudu do not score freely.
Wicket! The tourists went upstairs to review LBW appeal against Dhawan and they were spot on. Dhawan has to depart for 29 as the ball-tracking showed no edge and ticked all three boxes. India lost their 2nd wicket. Ashley Nurse gets a breakthrough. India 40/2 in 8.4 overs
India 30/1 after 6 overs. Not the ideal start the hosts would have hoped for after winning the toss as Rohit departed back to the pavilion cheaply for 4. Onus on Kohli - 5* and Dhawan - 21*.
Kohli gets off the mark with a boundary. He's 77 short of the 10000 run mark now. Will he be able to get there or will the Windies get the better of him today?
Wicket! Rohit Sharma is dismissed for 4 and India have lost their first wicket for 15. He gives a catch to Hetmyer straight towards backward point and Kemar Roach gets the first scalp. India - 15/1 in 3.1 overs.
0,4,4,0,0,2! 10 runs came from that over from Holder and India are 15/0 after 3 overs.
0,4,4,0,0,2! 10 runs came from that over from Holder and India are 15/0 after 3 overs.
Rohit Sharma hits a boundary down the leg side to get off the mark and India are 4/0 after 1 over.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are into the middle to start India's innings while Jason Holder starts with the new ball.
WI are the only team to have beaten India at this venue.

Rohit Sharma - the centurion from the previous game - while Shikhar Dhawan - who slammed a ton when he last played at Vizag - will be opening innings for India.

Jason Holder: Seems to be a good track. It should hold up for the 100 overs. Looks drier than the last pitch. In a run chase, the batters have to be clinical. But up first, the bowlers will have to do the job. We have one change as Obed McCoy comes in for Oshane Thomas.
Virat Kohli: We are gonna have a bat first. May be it will get slower in the second half. Because of our bowling combination, we want to put up a score on the board.
Toss Update: India captain Virat Kohli has won the toss and opted to bat first as the surface looks good for batting.
