India vs West Indies Team News
The team got blown away by the West Indies in the first ODI game of their three-match series. The hosts have it all to do if they are to stop back-to-back series losses on their home soil since they had lost to West Indies in 2002 and also to Pakistan in 2005. India’s best order failed to fire and in spite of managing to make a reputable 287/8, the bowling unit were incapable to live with their opponents and the fight to take wickets banned them to stop the West Indies from chasing down the total. Much was made of India’s issue in the build-up to the first match but they played well with Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer each scoring into the 70s and it is the bowlers whose places can come under threat with Shivam Dube still struggling on debut.
West Indies were in scintillating form with the bat since they produced a huge upset to beat India in the opening of the ODI. If they maintain that form heading into their second game, they might make light work of getting a series win. It was a great performance across the board with the ball, however, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph and Keemo Paul did most of the damage as they flaked in with numerous wickets apiece giving the batsmen a total that can be chased down. The bowler’s efforts were outshined by two superb knocks with the bat as Shai Hope jagged an unbeaten 102 while Shimron Hetmyer hit a magnificent 139 off just 106 balls with the pair hitting on an outstanding partnership of 218 to guide their side to the eight-wicket victory.
