Record-breaker Rampaul thinking 'big'

Visakhapatnam, India — Ravi Rampaul played the innings of a lifetime in the second ODI against India on Friday night and following his heroics, the 27-year-old is looking for more consistent performances.

Rampaul entered the record books with a superb unbeaten 86 off just 66 balls in an action-packed hour of power-hitting at the Dr Y.S. Rajashekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Stadium.

He indicated he is looking to put together more “important performances” with his left-handed batting and right-arm fast bowling to improve his “allround game”.

Spirited Windies go down by 5 wickets

Visakhapatnam, India - Virat Kohli compiled his eighth hundred in One-Day Internationals as India won the second match on Friday night to take a 2-0 series lead over West Indies.

Chasing 270 for victory, Kohli (117) and Rohit Sharma (90 not out) batted with a lot of maturity and added 163 for the fourth wicket to give India victory by five wickets at the Dr YS Rajashekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Stadium.

Amazing Rampaul sets batting record

Visakhapatnam, India -- West Indies left-hander Ravi Rampaul on Friday created a new world record for the highest score by a Number 10 batsman in history of One-Day Internationals.

The 27-year-old struck a magnificent unbeaten 86 against India in the second One-Day International as West Indies recovered from 170-9 to reach 269-9 off their 50 overs at the Dr YS Rajashekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Stadium.

Batsmen hold key for Windies

Visakhapatnam, India -- The West Indies have managed to push India to the wall on a several occasions in the Test series, and in the first One-Day International at Cuttack a couple of days ago, dismissing half the hosts’ batting line-up for just 59.

However, in each instance, they let India off the hook, only to rue the lost chance.

WI seeking winning formula

Visakhapatnam, India -- West Indies skipper Darren Sammy has said his team needs to find a way to beat India, after playing brilliantly in patches only to give it all up when it mattered.

“Yeah, we keep getting close but we need to find a way to win. We took India all the way down to the wire defending a small total at Cuttack.

“The guys have taken a lot of confidence from that performance. We had our moments and now we just need to put our head down and focus on the basics,” Sammy said ahead of the second ODI, to be played here on Friday.
