Riding on Mohammed Shami's fiery spell, India hammered West Indies by 125 runs to inch closer to securing a place in the semi-finals. Shami and Jasprit Bumrah bowled tight lines upfront to put the West Indies openers under pressure. Shami picked up two wickets in his opening spell to put West Indies on the backfoot. Sunil Ambris and Nicholas Pooran added 55 runs for the third wicket. After their departure none of the West Indian batsmen could hold fort which resulted in their side suffering a humiliating defeat. Earlier, Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat. India managed to post 268/7 in 50 overs, thanks to a typical MS Dhoni finish at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Thursday. West Indies produced a disciplined bowling performance to restrict India to a competitive total. Indian skipper Virat Kohli top-scored with 82-ball 72 while MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya also made vital contributions to India's total. Virat Kohli achieved yet another milestone and became the fastest to score 20,000 international runs. (SCORECARD)
