Jamaica (West Indies), June 29 (ANI): A skipper's knock of 95 by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, could not prevent India from suffering a humiliating eight-wicket defeat at the hands of the West Indies in the second one-day international at Jamiaca's Sabina Park on Sunday.

India were dismissed for 188 in 48.2 overs and in reply the West Indians romped to victory, powered by knocks of 64 and 85 by openers Chris Gayle and Runako Morton in 34.1 overs.

The four match series is now leveled at 1-1.

Earlier, the Indian batting line-up collapsed to the West Indies pace attack led by Ravi Rampaul (4/37), Jerome Taylor (3/35) and Dwayne Bravo (3/26).

Dhoni struck six boundaries and a couple of sixes in his innings and stitched together a record 101-run partnership for the ninth wicket with RP Singh (23) to lead India's recovery from a precarious 82 for eight in 22 overs.

Yuvraj Singh (35) was the only other significant contributor to the Indian score. (ANI)
