IND 35/1 | Overs 6 | Rohit 11*, Kohli  13*

Virat Kohli flicks one on the leg side to hit a boundary, as India seem to be picking up after the early loss of their star opener Shikhar Dhawan. Seven runs scored off Holder’s third over in the game.

IND 27/1 | Overs 5 | Rohit 11*, Kohli 6*

Ravi Rampaul continues to trouble Rohit. The Indian opener gets a boundary with an outside edge that flew towards the third man region. Amid a quiet over, there was a loud appeal for caught behind by the West Indies players on the penultimate ball which was turned down by the umpire Rod Tucker.

IND 23/1 | Overs 4 | Rohit 7*, Kohli 6* OUT! Dhawan 5(6)

And there’s the first wicket! Shikhar Dhawan plays an ordinary shot on a ball that was rising up, getting caught behind the wickets off Jason Holder. Dhawan’s lack of foot movement was evident as he was in no position to play a stroke. Virat Kohli walks in, and gets away with a cracking drive for four and a couple of runs.

IND 16/0 | Overs 3 | Rohit 6*, Dhawan 5*

Rampaul troubles Rohit with good line and length but fails to get a breakthrough. The Indian openers add three runs from that over.

IND 4/0 | Overs 1 | Rohit 2*, Dhawan 1*

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan open for India as they add four runs in the first over off Ravi Rampaul. The uneven bounce on the Kochi stadium’s pitch was evident on the very first ball of the innings as the ball kept low and hit Rohit’s toe end of the bat as he defended the ball.

It has been an ordinary show with the bat by the West Indians. After deciding to bat first, they failed to build strong partnerships, barring the two 65-run stands between Johnson Charles-Marlon Samuels and then Darren Bravo and Lendl Simmons. For India, Suresh Raina was the surprise package with 3-34 off his 10 overs. Stay tuned for India’s chase that will begin in sometime.

WI 211/10 | Overs 48.5 | J Holder 16* OUT! R Rampaul 1(14)

WI 211/9 | Overs 48 | J Holder 16*, R Rampaul 1*

WI 208/9 | Overs 47 | J Holder 15*, R Rampaul 0*

Ravindra Jadeja came out to bowl his final over and managed to beat Ravi Rampaul’s bat a couple of times. Only one run was scored off the over.

WI 207/9 | Overs 46 | J Holder 14*, R Rampaul 0* OUT! S Narine 0 (6)

WI 205/8 | Overs 45 | J Holder 13*, S Narine 0* OUT! D Sammy 5 (16)

In a bid to up the scoring rate, Darren Sammy Perished as he played against the turn to Ravindra Jadeja and holed out to Bhuvneshwar Kumar to long-off. Ravindra Jadeja picks up his 49th wicket of the year.

WI 204/7 | Overs 44 | J Holder 12*, D Sammy 5*

Jason Holder continues to impress with his batting. He goes over the top on off to send Jaydev Unadkat’s ball towards cover boundary.

WI 199/7 | Overs 43 | J Holder 8*, D Sammy 4*

Jason Holder is playing some perfect cover drives, but is unable to find gaps. Dhoni continues with two slips in place. Yet, the West Indian players are failing to find runs. Only two runs are scored off the over.

WI 197/7 | Overs 42 | J Holder 7*, D Sammy 3*

Jaydev Unadkat is brought back into the attack. After a good start, he strays in the line as Jason Holder worked the ball away towards fine leg. Five runs are scored off the over.

Ravindra Jadeja beats Darren Bravo in flight and wicketkeeper MS Dhoni whips the bails in a flash. West Indies’ tail is exposed with the last recognised batsman back in the pavilion

WI 183/6 | Overs 38 | DJ Bravo 20*, D Sammy 0* OUT! DM Bravo 59 (77)

Mohammed Shami  strayed on the pads of Dwayne Bravo in the second delivery which was sent for a boundary. However, he returned well to Darren Bravo’s stumps as the ball kept low.

WI 177/5 | Overs 37 | DJ Bravo 15*, DM Bravo 58*

Ravichandran Ashwin comes round the wicket. Despite five dot deliveries, one poor delivery is set beyond the boundary for a six by Dwayne Bravo.

WI 153/5 | Overs 32 | DJ Bravo 1*, DM Bravo 48* OUT! Deonarine 4(14)

WI 151/4 | Overs 31 | Deonarine 4*, DM Bravo 47*

Ravichandran Ashwin has not taken a wicket so far but he has been more than effective with the turn and bounce that he has extracted on the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium pitch.

WI 148/4 | Overs 30 | Deonarine 3*, DM Bravo 45*

West Indies batsmen take four singles off Suresh Raina, who has been very impressive with the ball today.

WI 144/4 | Overs 29 | Deonarine 1*, DM Bravo 43*

WI 142/4 | Overs 28 | Deonarine 0*, DM Bravo 42*  OUT! Simmons 29(40)

Unlucky for Lendl Simmons. Raina’s delivery hits Simmons into the pads and after some contemplation the umpire raised his finger. However, it wasn’t a convincing decision as the ball seemed to be going down the leg side. Narsingh Deonarine is the new man in.

WI 142/3 | Overs 27 | Simmons 29*, DM Bravo 42* 

Lendl Simmons clobbers a six over the deep square leg boundary off R Ashwin and Darren Bravo ends the over with a boundary as the West Indies add 11 runs from it. The fourth-wicket stand between Bravo and Simmons is of 65 runs now.

WI 131/3 | Overs 26 | Simmons 22*, DM Bravo 38*

WI 128/3 | Overs 25 | Simmons 20*, DM Bravo 37* 

Ravichandran Ashwin is extracting some sharp turn on this track. Bravo and Simmons both bat cautiously but it is the former who is troubled the most with one mis-timed hit and an inside edge.

WI 111/3 | Overs 22 | Simmons 12*, DM Bravo 29* 

Mohammed Shami returns into the attack to bowl his second over of the game. Shami unsuccessfully appeals for a leg-before on the first ball of the game. Only two runs scored from that over. 

WI 109/3 | Overs 21 | Simmons 11*, DM Bravo 28* 

Ravichandran Ashwin keeps it tight, allowing only three runs off his second over. Darren Bravo and Lendl Simmons have steadied the West Indies with their cautious unbeaten stand for the fourth wicket.

WI 106/3 | Overs 20 | Simmons 10*, DM Bravo 27* 

100 up for the Windies. Darren Bravo gets a thick edge off Suresh Raina as the ball races for a boundary in the third-man region. A good over for the tourists as they add eight runs off it.

WI 98/3 | Overs 19 | Simmons 8*, DM Bravo 21* 

Yuvraj Singh gets into the act, saving couple of runs at the boundary. Bravo smashes one towards the cover and the senior India cricketer dives to save a couple of runs for his side.

WI 92/3 | Overs 18 | Simmons 6*, DM Bravo 18*

Jadeja continues to keep it tight at the other end as the Caribbean batsmen scramble for four runs in his fourth over of the game.

Time for drinks.

WI 87/3 | Overs 16 | Simmons 4*, DM Bravo 15* 

Raina bowls a faster delivery which is directed towards the third-man area by Darren Bravo. The West Indies batsmen add a further six runs in that over.

WI 81/3 | Overs 15 | Simmons 3*, DM Bravo 11* 

Jadeja appeals for a caught behind on the final ball of the 15th over of the game against Darren Bravo, but the umpire says not out. Only one run scored off that over as the tourists will now be looking for a stable partnership in the middle after quick wickets.

WI 80/3 | Overs 14 | Simmons 2*, DM Bravo 11* OUT! Samuels 24(35)

Unfortunate for Marlon Samuels. The ball keeps low and Samuels fails to connect and is bowled in the 14th over of the game. Samuels could do nothing on such a delivery that hardly bounced, and crashed into the base of his middle-stump. Nevertheless, India celebrate another breakthrough.

WI 77/2 | Overs 13 | Samuels 24*, DM Bravo 10*

Darren Bravo gets into the groove with a fine hit over the mid-off fielder for a six off Jadeja. The West Indies add eight runs from that over.

WI 69/2 | Overs 12 | Samuels 22*, DM Bravo 3*

Suresh Raina is introduced in the attack in the 12th over of the match. The West Indies batsmen would now be cautious as spin has been deployed from both ends and they have lost one wicket in the last over. Two runs added in the over.

WI 67/2 | Overs 11 | Samuels 22*, DM Bravo 2* OUT! Charles 42(34)

Absolute stunner! Ravindra Jadeja comes into the attack and takes a superb return catch to send back the dangerous Johnson Charles for 42. Charles tries to take a run on the on side but the ball takes a leading edge and flies towards the bowler. Jadeja dives to his left and grabs the ball.

WI 63/1 | Overs 10 | Samuels 21*, Charles 41*

Change of ends for Bhuvneshwar but the move doesn’t have any effect on the West Indies batsmen. Samuels collects two boundaries as the Caribbean side reaches 63 for one after 10 overs.

WI 55/1 | Overs 9 | Samuels 13*, Charles 41*

MS Dhoni replaces Bhuvneshwar with Mohammed Shami, who had a terrific run in the Test series against the West Indies. Samuels welcomes Shami with a boundary in the cover area, as West Indies cross the 50-run mark in the 9th over of the game.

WI 47/1 | Overs 8 | Samuels 12*, Charles 34*

Unadkat has been wayward today and continues to pay the price for it. The left-arm seamer bowls one very wide to Charles, who smashes over the point region for a boundary. Another six runs added to West Indies’ total.

WI 41/1 | Overs 7 | Samuels 11*, Charles 29*

Charles takes the attack to the opposition with three consecutive boundaries off Bhuvneshwar. The tourist’s have recovered well with the early loss in form of Chris Gayle. Right-handed batsman Charles hits the third ball of the over towards midwicket, follows it up with a boundary towards point and on the penultimate ball of the over, he gets another four with a easy stroke towards the deep mid-wicket area.

WI 28/1 | Overs 6 | Samuels 10*, Charles 17*

WI 19/1 | Overs 4 | Samuels 8*, Charles 11*

Marlon Samuels shrugs off the slow start with a stunning hit over the covers for a six off Unadkat on the second ball of the over. Charles joins in too, hitting over the mid-on fielder for the maximum result as the West Indies seem to be picking up. 13 runs scored off that over.

WI 6/1 | Overs 3 | Samuels 1*, Charles 5*

Bhuvneshwar bowls his second over of the game as the Caribbean batsmen manage only one run off it. It’s been a impressive start by the home side.

The pitch is troubling the West Indies’ batsmen with uneven bounce.

WI 5/1 | Overs 2 | Samuels 0*, Charles 5*

Johnson Charles cracks a boundary with a straight drive in the mid-off region off Jaydev Unadkat as West Indies look to recover from the early blow.

WI 1/1 | Overs 1 | Samuels 0*, Charles 1*   OUT! Gayle 0(2)

Chris Gayle is run out on the second ball! Gayle pushes the ball and goes for a risky run. Bhuvneshwar Kumar grabs it and a direct hit on the non-striker’s end sends back the dangerous Gayle back to the pavilion. The burly West Indies’ opener was in pain as he skidded on the ground and was carried away on a stretcher. Only one run scored off Bhuvneshwar’s first over. 

West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo won the toss and elected to bat against India in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Kochi on Thursday.
