India vs West Indies 2014, 1st ODI at Kochi: Ravindra Jadeja, Shikhar Dhawan face tall task

Oct 8, 2014

India are chasing 322 to win against West Indies in the first One-Day International (ODI) at Kochi. They are struggling at 132 for five and are in huge trouble.

Ravindra Jadeja and Shikhar Dhawan are facing a big task here at Kochi. Jadeja got his first boundary off Darren Sammy’s bowling as he drove it through the off-side. But the boundaries have been few as they have lost wickets at regular intervals, which has severely pegged them back in this run-chase.

India had won the toss and elected to bowl first. Coming into this ODI, there was some uncertainty about the West Indies players featuring as there was a pay dispute, but that issue was put to rest and both teams took the field. Marlon Samuels’ ton then took West Indies to 321 for six in their 50 overs. Denesh Ramdin also contributed with 61.
