After being dominated by West Indies in the first ODI, Afghanistan will be looking forward to redeeming themselves to stay in the 3-match ODI series.

West Indies then produced a clinical performance withn the ball, left-arm seamer Sheldon Cottrell (three for 29), off-spinner Roston Chase (three for 30) and leg-spinner Hayden Walsh (three for 36) all claiming three wickets each to dismantle Afghanistan for 200 in the 46th over.

The groups will meet again at Lucknow in the third and last ODI on Monday.

Shai Hope and Roston Chase struck half-centuries to power West Indies to a seven-wicket win over Afghanistan in the first one-day worldwide in smog-hit Lucknow on Wednesday.

Preview: Afghanistan will hope to mount a fight back in the second one-dayer against West Indies at Lucknow, one that will help them level the series in a do-or-die clash. The series was the first for West Indies under new captain Kieron Pollard and new coach Phil Simmons.

Najibullah Zadran (56) and Mohammad Nabi (32) provided some lower-order resistance to extend the contest, but they fell to consecutive balls in separate overs as Afghanistan's hopes faded away.

Indeed, there were only two other notable contributions from the Windies' batting line-up, Shimron Hetmyer making 34 to play his part. Asked to bat first, the Pollard-led side scored 247 for 9 in the allotted 50 overs.

West Indies then struck early in the Afghan reply, when Javed Ahmadi failed to keep down a short ball and was caught and bowled by Cottrell off the fifth ball of the innings without scoring. But unlike the Bangladesh team-members, the West Indies star did not wear those mask because of pollution. Shah lost his wicket at the score of 33 due to miscommunication in running between the wickets with Zazai.Rostan Chase picked Zazai (23) in the 15th over.

But Zadran and Nabi frustrated West Indies in a 68-run, sixth wicket stand, reviving the hosts' hopes of victory.
