    Default India v WI, 2nd ODI, Visakhapatnam | Kohli, Rohit shine as India go 2-0 up

    Another run-fest at high-scoring Vizag?




    Big Picture

    As the tour moves to the YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam, the contest between the teams - which seemed rather predictable to begin with - has acquired a more exciting taste following a couple of manic finishes in the lead-up to this game. A draw with the scores level in the third Test and a nail-biting finish in Cuttack, during which Varun Aaron and Umesh Yadav provided an insight into the intricacies of human behaviour under pressure, have spiced up a home season characterised by one-sided contests and poor crowds.


    Visakhapatnam should not worry about poor crowds - it's only hosted three internationals in six years and it would be an exception if the game doesn't entertain. A high-scoring venue, teams have gone past 250 in each of the six ODI innings here - twice while chasing successfully. In what could be a battle of the bats at a venue that shot MS Dhoni into the limelight in 2005, the Indian top order will not want to fall victim to the "soft dismissals" that their captain Virender Sehwag criticised them for after the Cuttack game. Even more so for West Indies. They were troubled by India's seamers in Cuttack, but are now at a venue where the bowlers' skills and variations have been of limited value in past games.

    Default Rampaul becomes highest scoring No. 10 batsmen in ODIs

    VISAKHAPATNAM: West Indies' Ravi Rampaul on Friday created a new world record for the highest score by a No. 10 batsman in history of ODIs when he struck a magnificent unbeaten 86 against India in the second ODI.


    Rampaul, coming at the fall of Andre Russell's wicket when the West Indies were tottering at 149 for 8, surpassed the earlier record held by Pakistan's Mohammed Aamer.

    Aamer made 73 not out against New Zealand at Abu Dhabi in 2009.

    Pacer Rampaul, during his 66-ball stay at the crease, hit six fours and an equal number of sixes to lift the West Indies to 269 for nine in 50 overs, leaving India stunned and their bowlers bereft of ideas.

    The 27-year-old Trinidadian also stitched together an unbeaten 99-run partnership in 14 overs for the last wicket with Kemar Roach (24), the third highest 10th wicket stand in the history of the game.

    The other two notable 10th wicket partnerships were between West Indian greats Vivian Richards and Michael Holding (106 runs against England at Manchester in 1984) and Pakistan's Aamer and Saeed Ajmal (103 runs against New Zealand at Abu Dhabi in 2009).

    If that's not enough, Rampaul created another record of most sixes by a number 10 batsman, clearing the ropes six times.
