India Levels 2nd Colonial Medical Insurance ODI Series With A 53-Run Victory

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua– India leveled the three-match Colonial Medical Insurance (CMI) One Day International (ODI) series when they defeated the West Indies Women by 53 runs in the second match, at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

Mithali Raj won the toss for India and elected to bat first on a humid day in North Sound. The West indies bowlers had an early breakthrough when they removed Jemimah Rodrigues for 0, handing Aaliyah Alleyne her first ODI wicket. Soon after it was Priya Punia who fell for 5 to Shabika Gajnabi. The young West Indies pacers showing their fearless approach to a notable Indian batting lineup.

Punam Raut and captain Mithali Raj consolidated the India middle order, posting a 66-run partnership before Raj was caught of Sheneta Grimmond for 40. But it was a lifeline given to Raut when Stafanie Taylor dropped a difficult running catch, which allowed Raut to go on and score 77. Together with 46 from Harmanpreet Kaur, the pair posted a mammoth 93 runs together before Kaur fell.

India finished their 50 overs on 191/6. Afy Fletcher was the most successful West Indies bowler, taking 2/32 followed by Aaliyah Alleyne with 2/38.
