West Indies wrap up series acquire

AFG vs WI

Tens of thousands of black moths and flies took over the Lucknow stadium for the day-night game and several West Indies players wore masks because of the nuisance that made batting and fielding hard. Najibullah and Nabi then added 68 runs but both the batsmen left in successive overs as they slipped to 177 for seven in the 40th over.

The West Indies received their second ODI towards Afghanistan by 47 runs to take an unassailable 2-Zero lead within the three-match sequence being performed between the 2 sides on the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. Shepherd scored just six runs in his innings while Pooran scored 67 off 50 balls to take West Indies close to 250. Naveen-ul-Haq was the best bowler for Afghanistan grabbing 3/60 in nine overs.

For West Indies, Sheldon Cottrell (3/25) and Roston Chase (3/30) took three wickets each, while Hayden Walsh (2/32) snapped two.

"In the middle order we faltered a bit after the opening stand but can't fault the boys", Pollard said. They had last won a series way back in 2014.

West Indies had previously won the first ODI that was held on Wednesday by seven wickets which means that they have now confirmed victory in the three-match series.

All the Best Stats as Frank Lampard's Chelsea Youngsters Beat Crystal Palace
Tammy Abraham's composed finish gave the Blues the lead, as the 22-year-old moved up to ten league strikes for the season. James' inclusion at right-back for Chelsea brought the average age of their starting XI down to 24 years and 88 days.

Lewis, who raised his seventh ODI half-century a few balls earlier in the same over, then perished in the 26th when he missed a sweep at off-spinner Javed Ahmadi and was bowled around his legs.

Although Afghanistan kept on taking wickets, Pooran took charge in the last six overs before he fell in the last over while attempting to clear the long-off fence.

After exhibiting a brilliant all-round display in the first ODI, West Indies will be hoping to replicate their performance.

Afghanistan is hosting the West Indies in this northern Indian city for three ODIs, followed by three T20s and a one-off test. Winning is a habit and we need to enjoy ourselves similarly day after.
