With a 4-wicket haul and a 44-run triumph while defending a small score, the rookie pacer demonstrates his prowess.
In the eighth over, Prasidh Krishna came into the attack and altered the game. West Indies hoped till then. India was defending a modest 237 and needed to take early wickets. When skipper Rohit Sharma made a significant bowling change, Shai Hope and Brandon King, the two Caribbean openers, were getting into the rhythm and raising the tempo. Prasidh has built a name for himself in T20 cricket with the Kolkata Knight Riders. With an attacking line and length, as well as the ability to move the ball, he screams “red-ball bowler.”
The pitch at Motera for the second ODI was a little hot, with plenty ball bounce and off-the-deck action. For the tourists, Alzarri Joseph bowled a magnificent spell with the new ball. In India’s 44-run triumph, Prasidh outperformed him. After the West Indies were all out for 193, the hosts clinched the three-match series.

Darren Bravo is a veteran of the Caribbean pack, and Prasidh was certain that he had forced an edge in Rishabh Pant from the left-hander. The appeal was denied by umpire Nitin Menon, but Sharma chose to walk upstairs. Ultra Edge spotted a surge, and the India captain was five out of five in DRS across two games. It’s no surprise that Sunil Gavaskar has started referring to it as the ‘Definitely Rohit System’ on broadcast.

Under pressure, this West Indies batting lineup is brittle. As a result, when Prasidh took out stand-in West Indies skipper Nicholas Pooran – Kieron Pollard was unable to play due to a niggle – India were in complete command. Another back-of-a-length ball drifted away from the left-hander, straightening him up a little and taking the outside edge on its way to Sharma at first slip. The skipper’s decision to stand a little wider in that position was wise. As Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed Hope, his tactical acumen came to the fore.
