India's veteran batsman Yuvraj Singh, who has been going through a rough phase with the bat, has become a talking point for wearing Champions Trophy's jersey during a match between India and Windies in the second ODI at Queen's Park on Sunday.

Despite Yuvraj's poor performance, India was able to produce an all-round performance to thrash West Indies by 105 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the five match series on Sunday.

According to the reports, the 35-year-old player did this unusual thing intentionally to change his fortune with the bat but all efforts went in vain as he scored only 14 runs from 10 balls before being removed by Windies skipper Jason Holder.

The second ODI was also affected due to heavy rains and the match was reduced to 43 overs a side.

A century partnership for the opening wicket between Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan and 87 from skipper Virat Kohli helped India put on a massive 310 for five. The 105-run margin gave the visitors their biggest win in the Caribbean.

Rahane was announced to be the Man of the Match for his brilliant knock of 103 off 104 balls.

The third ODI will be played on Friday, June 30 at Antigua's Sir Vivian Richards stadium.
