Kohli stars in India's rain affected victory over West Indies in 2nd ODI

June 9, 2011 - Port of Spain (Trinidad)

India beat West Indies convincingly by seven-wickets in a rain-affected second one-day international and take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

India scored 183 for 3 in reply to the West Indies' 240 for 9 to win the game with twenty balls to spare.

A 120-run second-wicket stand between Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel helped India reach home comfortably.

In scoring his 19th score of fifty or more, Kohli also became the third-fastest Indian to reach 2000 ODI runs.

India achieved the target comfortably losing the wickets of Parthiv Patel (56) and Virat Kohli (81) in 33.4 overs.

Earlier, India restricted West Indies to 240 for nine after skipper Suresh Raina won the toss and elected to field at the Queen's Park Oval.

Amit Mishra (4/31) and Munaf Patel (3/35) struck in the late moments to stop the runflow and trigger a collapse after the Caribbeans went off to a good start.
