Video: Relive the hattrick of Kuldeep Yadav in the 2nd ODI against West Indies

In a do or die second ODI versus West Indies, Kuldeep Yadav broke the spine of hosts batting order to register his second hattrick in 50 overs format. In the second match of the series played in Visakhapatnam, Kuldeep took the second hat-trick of his career with successive wickets in the fourth, fifth and sixth balls of the 33rd over. With this, Kuldeep became the first Indian player to take a hat-trick twice in ODI cricket.

He first dismissed a dangerous looking Shai Hope, who was caught by Kohli for 78. On the very next delivery he got the wicket of Jason Holder, who was stumped by Pant for 11 and trapped Alzari Joseph to play a forceful shot and ended up getting caught by the second slip fielder Kedar Jadhav on a duck.

Earlier in the year 2017, Kuldeep took his first hat-trick against Australia in his IPL home ground Kolkata. The Chinaman bowler hunted the wickets of Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins.


Match report

India registered a convincing 107 runs victory over West Indies after scoring a mammoth 387 runs at the loss of 5 wickets. Rohit Sharma emerged as the highest scorer with an innings of 159 runs off 138 balls, well supported by other opener KL Rahul(102 off 104 balls). Some final flourish by Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant took India to a big score at a batsman friendly wicket of ACA VDCA stadium.

In response, West Indies got off to a flier courtesy Evin Lewis(30) and Shai Hope(78). They lost their way after the dismissal of Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis and Roston Chase but a resurgent Nicholas Pooran thrashed the Indian bowlers to all corner of the stadium to keep hosts in the game.

Shai Hope played an anchor role but the resistance was finally broken by Mohammed Shami, who dismissed Pooran on 75. It was left too much for the lower order batsman after Shami dismissed skipper Kieron Pollard on the very next ball and the hattrick by Kuldeep Yadav just made it impossible for them.

At last, Keemo Paul displayed some impressive stroke play but it was too little too late.
