India lost an ODI against West Indies after six years, here in Barbados, in the second ODI played between the two nations. 

India lost the match despite getting a 91-run partnership for the first wicket between opening pair Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan. Ishan emerged as the top run scorer for team India, and he scored two consecutive half-centuries.

While his counterpart, Shubman Gill seemed out of form throughout the series. In the second ODI against the Caribbeans, Gill managed to get a good start but failed to convert the start into a big score.

The Indian team was all-out at 181 runs against West Indies despite getting a 90-run partnership for the first wicket.

West Indies managed to chase down the score in just 36.4 overs. Carribean captain Shai Hope played the anchor role with his 63 runs in 80 deliveries.
