West Indies levelled their one-day series with India at 1-1 with a crushing eight-wicket win in Kingston.

India won the toss and batted but they were reduced to 7-3 and 82-8 as Jerome Taylor (3-35), Ravi Rampaul (4-37) and Dwayne Bravo (3-26) wreaked havoc.

A brilliant stand of 101 by Mahendra Dhoni, who struck 95 from 130 balls, and RP Singh (23) lifted them to 188.

But West Indies eased home, Chris Gayle (64) and Runako Morton (85) sharing 101 as they won with 15.5 overs to spare.

The third one-day international of the four-match series will be played in St Lucia on Friday.

Having sealed a narrow win in the first game on Friday after racking up 339 from their 50 overs, India showed the other side to their batting in Kingston.


They lost three wickets for seven runs in the first two overs, with Gautam Gambhir and Rohit Sharma both falling for a duck to Rampaul.

Yuvraj Singh and Dhoni set about fashioning a recovery until the former was bowled by Taylor for 35 and another collapse followed - when Praveen Kumar was out in the 22nd over, India were 82-8.

But RP Singh hung around with his captain, scoring 23 from 75 balls, while Dhoni clubbed six fours and two sixes to lift India, who were all out with 10 balls to spare, to a respectable total.

It was quickly apparent they did not have nearly enough to make a game of it though, as Gayle and Morton blazed a destructive trail.

Gayle, who smashed eight fours and two sixes, reached his half-century in just 37 balls and it was too little, too late when Sharma took his wicket and then had Ramnaresh Sarwan stumped.

Morton played beautifully for his 85 from 102 balls and West Indies won with more than 15 overs to spare at at Sabina Park.
