India Women v West Indies Women, 2nd ODI, Vadodara
Indian Eves Beat West Indies by 10 runs
Vadodara: India eves survived a late burst from Anisa Mohammed and Shakera Selmaneked to carve out a 10-run victory over West Indies women's team in the second one-day international on Thursday.
With this victory, India drew parity in the five-match series after West Indies chased down 162 runs in the first ODI in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Sent into bat, Indian eves could only manage 134 runs as they were bundled out in 41.2 overs.
For India Harmanpreet Kaur top-scored with 26 while Diana David (24), Mithali Raj (19), Poonam Raut (17) and Anagha Deshpande (17) also chipped in with useful contributions.
Defending the target, the home team looked set for an easy win after they reduced West Indies to 80 for eight.
But Mohammed (26) and Selman (17 not out) made things difficult for India with a 37-run ninth-wicket stand before left-arm spinner Gouher Sultana (3/10) scalped the crucial wicket of Mohammed.
However, it was captain Jhulan Goswami who struck early for India, picking up the crucial wicket of Staphanie Taylor, who had scored 85 in the first ODI, in the third over for just four.
West Indies were soon reduced to 29 for three after seamer Rumeli Dhar trapped Juliana Nero lbw and Shanel Daley became the first run out casualty of West Indies.
