The 3 match ODI series being played between India and West Indies has now reached a very exciting turn. With the West Indies side winning the second ODI by 6 wickets, the series has been leveled at 1-1. Two big changes were seen in the Indian team in the second ODI, in which it was decided to rest captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. During this, Kohli appeared in the role of the 12th player in the match and was seen carrying drinks for the players on the pitch.
Right now, the Indian team will play all the matches considering their preparation for the 2023 World Cup. A glimpse of the same was seen in the second ODI as well when Hardik Pandya was seen handling the captaincy responsibility. Instead of Kohli and Rohit, Sanju Samson and Akshar Patel got a chance to play in the team.
Kohli was rested in the second ODI, but during the Indian innings he was seen carrying drinks for the players during the break between overs. The video of this incident is going viral very fast on social media. Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav were batting when Kohli took the drinks in India’s 37th inning.

Talking about Team India’s performance in the second ODI, it was very disappointing. Getting the team off to a good start, the starting pairing of Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill shared a partnership of 90 runs for the first wicket, but after that the team’s innings dwindled to a score of 181. I could definitely see an innings of 55 runs off the bat by Ishan Kishan. Apart from this, all the other batsmen were disappointed with his performance. Now the decisive match of this series will be played on August 1, in which you can see the return of captain Rohit and Virat Kohli in the team.
