    All Over: India beat West Indies and it’s by a huge margion of 224 runs. Kuldeep Yadav picks up the final wicket of Kemar Roach to finish with 3 for 42 as India go 2-1 up in the series.

  • 7:45 PM IST

    Kuldeep takes out Nurse as West Indies lose their eighth wicket for 101. India just two away from a massive win, even thought West Indies have avoided a scenario of what could have been their biggest loss in ODIs.

  • 7:38 PM IST


  • 7:30 PM IST

    GONE: West Indies lose their seventh wicket for 77. Kuldeep Yadav gets his first wicket as he foxes Fabian Allen with a wrong ‘un. Edges to Rohit at first slip for his second catch.

  • 7:08 PM IST

    OUT: Another one for Khaleel, his third in three overs. Marlon Samuels slashes at an away delivery and Rohit Sharma leaps to complete the catch at first slip. West Indies 56 for 6 in 14 overs.

  • 6:55 PM IST

    OUT: This is devastating now. West Indies lose Rovman Powell, which is their fifth wicket. Khaleel bowls and the ball comes back in to clip the tip of off stump, beating Powell’s drive. Khaleel strikes for the second time in two overs, West Indies in deep, deep trouble at 47 for 5.

  • 6:47 PM IST

    OUT: West Indies lose their 4th wicket for 45. Khaleel Ahmed strikes in his first over to remove the dangerous Shimron Hetmyer out LBW. The batsman takes the review and despite the ball almost missing the top of off stump, he will have to go since the umpire’s call was OUT. Right then, West Indies’ chase is not even into its 10th over and it’s already in all sorts of disarray.

  • 6:42 PM IST

    Can you guess who is ahead of him as India’s all-time highest six-hitter?

  • 6:28 PM IST

    Another run-out: Suicidal stuff this from the West Indies. It’s Kieran Powell who has to head back now. Five balls after the previous run-out, Powell takes off from the non-striker’s end. Slight hesitation between the batsmen but Powell was half way down the wicket. Virat Kohli picks up the ball and his aim is spot in. West Indies 3 for 20.

  • 6:23 PM IST

    Windies lose two early: Not the kind of start West Indies were looking forward to. With 20 on the board, they have lost opener Chandrapaul Hemraj and the big one, Shai Hope on the same score. Hemraj found the fielder at cover to give Bhuvneshwar his first wicket of the day. Two balls later, a brilliant piece of work in the outfield saw a diving Hope take off but fall short of his crease. Hope took off for the single and Kuldeep picked up and threw the ball swiftly in a direct hit.

    Great start for India. West Indies 20 for 2 after 5 overs.

  • 5:24 PM IST

    15 runs from the final over for India as they post a massive 377/5. It has been a dominating show from India with the bat. Virat Kohli was out early but Rohit Sharma scored a brilliant 162 – his seventh 150-plus score in ODIs. Ambati Rayudu scored a brisk century – his third in ODIs.

  • 5:18 PM IST

    OUT! MS Dhoni holes out to Chandrapaul Hemraj off Kemar Roach on 23. Ravindra Jadeja is the new man in. India 355/8 in 48.3 overs

  • 5:05 PM IST

    100 for Rayudu: India’s No. 4 finally gets there. A much-needed knock for Ambati Rayudu. While the attention was always on Rohit, Rayudu went about his business and brought up his 3rd ODI century. India 336 for 3 in 46.4 overs.

  • 4:52 PM IST

    OUT: There won’t be a fourth double century for Rohit. Falls 38 short of it. Wide delivery from Ashley Nurse and Rohit edges it to Chandrapaul Hemraj at short third-man. None the less, a fabulous knock of 162 from him, setting up the platform for a final flourish.

  • 4:42 PM IST

    150 up for Rohit Sharma. What are odds of him getting a fourth double century in ODIs? With over seven overs remaining, it looks very likely.

  • 4:40 PM IST

    Rohit overtakes Sachin Tendulkar for the second most number of sixes for India. He now has 196, second only to MS Dhoni.

  • 4:30 PM IST

    Alright, the final 10 overs remain. Projected score is 326 but at 261 for 2, India would surely eye 350. This is an ideal scenario for Rohit who has the tendency to go berserk in the final 10 overs.

  • 4:25 PM IST

    150 of the partnership comes up between Rohit and Rayudu. Rayudu just beginning to accelerate. Two boundaries and a six for him off the last two overs. India 252 for 2 in 39 overs.

  • 4:17 PM IST

    Fifty for Rayudu: A very well-deserved half-century for Ambati Rayudu. He has faced less deliveries in this partnership but has scored at almost a run-a-ball; his seconf half-century of the series. India 227 for 2 in 37 overs. With Rohit out there and his penchant to accelerate, India should be eyeing a 350-plus total.

  • 4:04 PM IST

    Century No. 21 for Rohit Sharma: Like we said, if Kohli doesn’t get you, Rohit will. Brings up his second century of the series as India march towards a challenging total. The third wicket pair between Rohit and Rayudu has now stretched to over 100 runs taking India to 204 for 2 in the 34th over.

  • 3:52 PM IST

    After 31 overs, India have moved to 181 for 2 with Rohit Sharma six short of his 21st ODI century.

  • 3:37 PM IST

    Fifty-run partnership comes up between Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu

  • 3:18 PM IST

    Fifty for Rohit: If Kohli doesn’t get you, Rohit will. The opener pulls Keemo Paul to bring up his half-century. Ominous signs for India as they move to 124/2 in the 22nd over.

  • 3:11 PM IST

    India have moved to 110/2 after 20 overs. The scoring rate is healthy and India have Rohit out there. West Indies would look to get him as soon as possible in order to expose the middle order. Interesting period of play lies ahead.

  • 3:02 PM IST

    India lose Kohli after their 100: There will be no 4th straight hundred for Virat Kohli. Shortly after Rohit Sharma and Kohli had brought up the 100 for India, Kemar Roach got the wicket West Indies so dearly wanted. Skipper Kohli, looking to glide the ball to third man, edges it to the wicketkeeper and India lose their second wicket for 101.

  • 2:32 PM IST

    OUT: The first wicket has gone down for India. Shikhar Dhawan pulls Keemp Paul straight to the man at midwicket. Once again, he’s let og off a start. Paul, after getting his man, pulls off Dhawan’s patent celebration. India 71 for 1. A huge cheer across the stadium as Virat Kohli walks out to the middle.

  • 2:08 PM IST

    Consecutive boundaries for Dhawan off Nurse to bring up India’s 50 after eight overs. Positive start by the openers. This is the third time he’s gotten off to a start in the series. West Indies, understanding his vulnerability against right-arm off spin have introduced Nurse. Going to be a fascinating battle.

  • 2:06 PM IST

    Consecutive boundaries for Dhawan off Nurse to bring up India’s 50 after eight overs.

  • 1:57 PM IST

    Six overs and one ball gone and Dhawan and Rohit are just beginning to get in their elements to take India to 40 without loss. Dhawan has cracked back-to-back flicks for six; had Sanath Jayasuriya written all over it.

India vs West Indies 4th ODI

Hello everyone! Welcome to our live coverage from the fourth ODI between India and West Indies to be played at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai today. The series has been set up nicely with West Indies giving favourites India a run for their money. A thrilling tie in Vizag was followed by a confidence-boosting win in Pune which has levelled the series 1-1.

Plenty will depend on India’s under-fire middle order if they are to regain the lead. The fourth India-West Indies game will be played at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium on Monday, which will host its first international match in nine years.

Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer have emerged as the two bankable options, and West Indies skipper Jason Holder has played the supportive role successfully with the bat. But most importantly, it’s their lower order that has bailed West Indies out of trouble in all three games. The only area they need to improve upon is their top order.
