Virat Kohli's 157 runs, Ambati Rayudu's 73 runs for India, Shai Hope's 123 runs and Hetmyer's 94 runs for -- all fell short to get their respetive teams a victory in the second ODI match between the two teams.

India scored 321/6 in their 50 overs and in its reply, too scored 321 runs, losing seven wickets.

It was a last ball thriller as needed 5 runs in just one ball, Umesh Yadav bowled the ball and Hope smashed it for a boundary, with that, it was all over, it all ended in a  tie.

Virat Kohli's day, filled with milestones was marred by West Indies' resilient performance today, especially with the bat as the latter managed to tie the match with India in a last-ball nail-biter, 

After today's tie, India still lead the 5 match series 1-0.

It looked just another match during the first innings and even during the initial overs of the West Indies batting but Shai Hope and Hetmyer's combined efforts denied India another victory.

It was a double delight for India captain Virat who completed 10000 runs in ODI format taking just 205 innings to do so and then hitting his 37th ODI century. was also adjudged man of the match for his prolific performance with the bat, scoring 157 runs including 13 fours and 3 sixes.

Virat also became the fastest player to score 10,000 runs in ODIs, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar's record.

However, Windies marred Kohli's milestone day as Shae Hope scored 123 runs not out and nearly took the match away from India but the last over confusions proved costly to the team.

West Indies top order was crubling yet again but signs of life were seen as Hope and took charge of the posts.

was yet again punishing Indian bowlers and was on the verge of scoring another century but a wrong timing cost him his wicket when just 6 runs away from century.

Hope was the sole hope for Indies even after R Powell too departed and he lived up to the momoent till the last ball, but it all stil fell short.

Kuldeep Yadav kept getting breakthrough initially, picking two key wicketts of Hemraj and Samuels and then scalping R Powell's wicket and it looked in control as earlier Shami removed Keiron Powell on the score of 18 runs, but then things turned the other way and Indian bowlers struggled for saving even singles, wickets weren't even a question as Hope accompanied by other batsmen were punishing all the bowlers.

Earlier, West Indies bowlers, including captain Holder, Mc Coy and Kemar Roach faced Kohli's fury and Rayudu's assault. 

and Nurse were of no help too as Kohli went on a rampage. 

Shikhar Dhawan and Sharma couldn't do much today and Dhoni and Jadeja too barely managed to score big runs for the team.
