DMC Cup 1999-2000: Second One-Day International

India v West Indies 1999-2000

At Toronto, September 12. West Indies won by 70 runs. Toss: West Indies.

Campbell's second fifty in two days was rewarded this time as West Indies levelled the series. Lara, Ganguly's third victim thanks to a diving catch by the wicket-keeper, was the only other batsman to reach 30 in the match, and he was correct when he said that 190 should be enough on this pitch. India's new openers both fell in the second over of their reply, and incisive bowling meant their side were a wretched 43 for seven just after the halfway mark. They were saved from undercutting India's lowest one-day total, 63 against Australia in 1980-81, by Chopra and Joshi, who carried them to 100. But the last three wickets fell in as many overs. Dillon, who conceded only one run an over, and Walsh bowled with particular thrift.

Man of the Match: S. L. Campbell.
