West Indies pushed India to the brink in a match that ebbed and flowed. First it was Kyle Mayers and Shamarh Brooks who took India to the cleaners with both the batters slamming fifties. Once this stand was broken, Nicholas Pooran and Brandon King took over and took the game deep only to lose the plot. In the end the game came down to 15 off last six balls where Siraj bowled effectively, winning India the game by barest of margins, just three runs. It was a close match and India survived a scare. Nonetheless, this win means India take 1-0 lead in 3-match series.
Just to sum up what had just happened off the final ball, Siraj bowled a yorker which went through Shepherd’s legs, but Samson did well to catch that one which meant no runs were conceded and India had defended 15 runs off the final over. They win the match by 3 runs and take 1-0 lead in 3-match series.
Yorker and no runs which means INDIA WIN by 3 runs.
Full and straight and two runs for Shepherd…Five needed off last ball. What an intense match.
Wide ball from Siraj, so now the equation is 7 off 2.
Two runs for West Indies, slight misfielding from Krishna here. They now need 8 off 2.
FOUR! Shepherd gets it…looking for that shot and he gets it. Result is FOUR. Windies now need 10 off 3.
Just a single off the next ball, great line from Siraj, Hosein was looking for the ramp shot, but missed the line; now Windies need 14 off 4.
First ball is dot ball from Siraj…no runs, WI need 15 off 5.
And he survives the first ball, but concedes a FOUR off the last ball. We might have a cliff hanger on our hands, folks. WI 294/6; they need 15 off 6!
Mighty heave from Shepherd and crowd for one moment thought this one has gone for FOUR, huge roar for a moment. Nonetheless, it was just a single. Meanwhile Krishna has two balls to go. WI 289/6(48.4)
WICKET! Sigh of relief from Indian bowlers as Shepherd has edged that one straight to the keeper. He has reveiwed that one and DRS says NOT OUT. Huge roar in the stands…he is NOT Out, HE SURVIVES. India still in trouble. WI 288/6
SIX! What a shot from Mario Shepherd. It reminds me of butcher. That was brutal power…Oh my god and that clears the stand. Pressure right on the first ball. Dhawan now rushing to the bowler. Equation now is 21 off 11.
Another single, full and wide and then comes FOUR! That’s so unlucky for Siraj. Great execution with the yorker and yet the ball kisses Shepherd’s bat and races to boundary. WI 281/6(48)
Well, well, well…Siraj stars off with FOUR leg byes. Good start to the over if you are Windies fan, bad start for Indian fans and then comes a gem of a ball from Siraj. Ball just tailing in after pitching wide of off. Then comes another full delivery. Top stuff from Siraj. WI 276/6(47.3)
Yeah! He gets it, Romario Shepherd gets it, was looking for a flighted ball and Chahal just gifted him that and the batter hits it with brute force, that’s gone. What a shot. Now Chahal bowling flat and fast to the batter. WI 268/6(46.4)
And again, full and wide. Just a single. So, great execution from Siraj who is keeping that line and then he next bowls a yorker. Top stuff from Siraj, the new pace spearhead of this Indian bowling line up. WI 262/6(46)
Siraj into the attack and starts off with that usual line…full and wide as Hosein puts bat on it and gets a single. And then bowls short almost concedes a four, and then comes a dot. Pressure rising. WI 258/6; Req run rate is over 11.
Chahal back into the attack and gives away a single. King back on strike and gets a couple of runs. And then finds the fielder. Just enticing the batter with the flighted delivery, and King just taking the bait, finding the Shreyas Iyer. Big wicket again for India. This game just ebbs and flows. What a match we have had here. WI 252/6(44.3); Need 57 off 33 balls.
Great yorkers to start the 43rd, but Krishna couldn’t stop the single off his second ball. And then came the punch through the covers off Akeal Hosein’s bat…they will get a couple. But great next ball, full and wide, batter fails to connect. Dot ball. WI 248/5(43.4)
Earlier India was asked to bat first after they lost the toss. But the decision proved exactly right as Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill gave India a rollicking start, especially Gill was the aggressor. After his departure, Dhawan and Iyer took over and it looked like India will reach 350. But after the second drinks break, India lost flurry of wickets, with Dhawan, Iyer both departing in no time. Even Deepak Hooda and Sanju Samson ate up balls. In the end, it was Axar Patel who broke the shackles and India managed to cross 300 mark, eventually setting up 309 run target to Windies.
West Indies skipper Nicholas Pooran won the toss and elected to bowl against India in the series opener at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad. India picked Shubman Gill over Ruturaj Gaikwad as Shikhar Dhawan’s opening partner, while Sanju Samson got a nod over Ishan Kishan to keep the gloves. Vice-captain Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the first two ODIs after sustaining a knee injury.
In the absence of several experienced players, Shikhar Dhawan will lead a young Indian team in the ODI series against a struggling Windies side who recently lost the three-match series to Bangladesh.
The Men in Blue are high on confidence after an impressive show in white-ball matches against England. However, they will miss the services of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah in the ODI series against the Windies.
It will be a good opportunity for young players like Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Deepak Hooda and Arshdeep Singh to showcase their talent on the big stage in the absence of star players.
While, on the other side, West Indies are going through a transitional phase after the retirement of Kieron Pollard. It will be a big series for Nicholas Pooran and Co. to make a statement in the cricketing world.
