Shikhar Dhawan-led team India is taking on West Indies in the second one-day international seeking to clinch the three-match series by winning the second game of the series on the trot. Notably, Men in Blue had beaten the West Indies in a thrilling contest in the first ODI of the three-match series.
In the second ODI, after opting to bat first, West Indies were off to a flying start as the openers notched up 65-runs for the first wicket. While West Indies was cruising on the back of an impressive little inning from Kyle Mayers and an able hand from wicket-keeper batter Shai Hope, who was playing second fiddle until then, Indian pacers looked clueless to provide any tough challenge to both the batters.
Both the batters were looking in good touch and were playing shots all-around, before all-rounder Deepak Hooda provided team India with the much-needed breakthrough in the first innings. On the first ball of his very first over of the game, Hooda caught-and-bowled a dangerous-looking Kyle Mayers on 39. While, Hooda impressed everyone with his incredible bowling, cricket fans noticed something unusual on his jersey.
Notably, Hooda was wearing the jersey of Indian pacer Prasidh Krishan with a number 24 written on it. Later, Hooda placed a brown tape on ‘Prasidh’ on the jersey. Notably, Krishna made way for another pacer Avesh Khan in the 2nd ODI, who made his debut in one-day internationals. While a few cricket fans were confused over Hooda wearing Prasidh Krishan’s jersey, many cracked jokes on the incident.
