How do you bounce back from scoring 322 and losing by eight wickets with 47 deliveries to spare? That is the predicament facing West Indies as they seek to prevent India from a fourth successive win on tour when the teams meet in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday for the second ODI.

After losing by huge margins in the Test, West Indies were expected to be more competitive in the 50-over formats but instead were smashed in the first ODI. A dominant 78-ball 106 from Shimron Hetmyer helped West Indies to 322/8 after they were asked to bat, but that target was made to look 80 runs short as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma put on 246 for the second wicket with a pair of stunning hundreds.

Jason Holder was pleased with his team s batting, and felt they could improve in the second ODI. But it will take something extraordinary to stop them at a venue at which Kohli has amassed 647 runs in five international innings, including a sequence of 118, 117, 99 and 65 in four ODIs. Holder and his pace-bowling unit will have to bowl better lengths, and while Hetmyer s century proved a much-needed highlight for West Indies, getting a batsman of Marlon Samuels experience scoring runs will help.
