The West Indies was restricted at 153 for the loss of seven wickets in the stipulated 50 overs. The host carved an easy win in 38 overs, thanks to opener Smriti Mandhana (44) and captain Mithali Raj (45). Number three Deepti Sharma contributed a decent 32.

The series is part of the ICC women's championship with the third and final ODI to be played here on Tuesday.The West Indies would have been dismissed for less than 150 if it was not for Deandra Dottin, whose 63 came after her team was struggling at 58 for four.

She stitched a 70-run stand with Merissa Aguilleira to save her side the blushes.Veteran Jhulan Goswami and Ekta Bisht were the pick of the Indian bowlers, taking two wickets respectively.

The Indians were hardly tested in the chase. After opener Thirush Kamini departed cheaply, Mandhana and Sharma shared a 63-run partnership for the second wicket before the opener got out in the 26th over. India was cruising to a comfortable win at that stage.

Earlier, a couple of dropped catches by Smriti Mandana and Harmanpreet Kaur emboldened Dottin and Merissa to unleash risky shots. However, leg spinners Ekta Bisht and Rajeswari bowled tidy spells to check the menacingly marching Windies.
