India’s top-order comprising Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer were in scintillating form as they bowled the least for West Indies as all three batsmen scored half-centuries in the first ODI of the three-match series. However, West Indies were brilliant in the field and captain Nicholas Pooran took a brilliant catch to cut short Shreyas Iyer’s stint at the crease and the batsman went back after scoring 54 runs.

Pooran took a brilliant one-handed catch on the fifth ball of the 36th over bowled by Moti. Iyer made room for himself and tried to play shots inside and outside, but he was unable to get enough height. Pooran jumps up and the ball gets stuck in his right hand. As a result, Iyer had to go back to the hut.

In the match played between India and West Indies, West Indies won the toss and decided to bowl. Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill shared a 119-run partnership for the first wicket. However, India lost wickets in a cluster after Iyer’s dismissal and eventually had to settle for 308/7 in 50 overs. Ultimately India won the match by three runs.


West Indies needed 15 runs in the final over to chase down the record at the Queens Park Oval, but Mohammad Siraj was able to stop Romario Shepherd (38 not out on 25).

Kyle Meyers (75 off 68) and Shamar Brooks (46 off 61) at the top of the order raised West Indies’ hopes with a 117-run stand for the second wicket. In the end, West Indies fell short and finished at 305 for six.
