  • Now, what can we expect in the second innings? It is a stiff target for the Calypso Kings and it will be difficult for them to chase this down, especially given the slowness of the pitch. Will they chase this down or will the Men in Blue bag a victory? Join us in a while to find out.
  • Coming to the West Indian bowlers, they were disciplined throughout except the spinners. Cottrell, Joseph and Keemo Paul were the pick of the bowlers as they picked up two wickets each. The spinners, Hayden Walsh and Roston Chase were disappointing. It was expected that they will have a major impact on this game but it was the pacers who did all the damage. The last few overs were good for the visitors and they will be reasonably happy going into the break.
  • Sanjay Manjrekar is down for an interview with Shreyas Iyer. On being asked about his 4th consecutive fifty in ODIs, Iyer says that it is a good achievement for him. Further adds that when the offie (Roston Chase) came in, Iyer thought that he will target Chase but with the team in a bit of trouble he took some time before going for the big hits. On his relationship with Pant, Iyer says that there's always been a good chemistry between him and Pant and everyone knows he has potential. Mentions how Pant took some time to adjust to the pitch but then played some very good shots. On being asked about the pitch, Iyer says that as the game goes on, the ball should start to spin but also with the dew coming in no one knows what to expect.
  • The hosts started poorly losing KL Rahul and Virat Kohli in the same over but then Rohit and Iyer stitched a good partnership of just over 50 runs before Sharma threw his wicket away. Then came the match-defining stand, a 114-run partnership between Iyer and Pant which took India to a launchpad from where they could lift-off. However, Iyer fell for 70 and then Pant soon followed after scoring his first ODI fifty. That broke the momentum and it then looked like India will not be able to reach a good total but Kedar Jadhav's cameo helped India reach a total close to 300. The last five overs though yielded only 38 runs. That will make the visitors happy as they restricted the hosts to below 300.
  • India finish with a competitive score after the end of the 50 overs and they will be having mixed emotions in the dressing room after looking at that score. However, on a track where the average score is 260-270, they should be happy with that.
  • 49.6 Full delivery outside off, Chahar drives it to cover and picks up a single. INDIA FINISH ON 287/8.
  • 49.5 Short of a length ball on middle, Chahar pulls it towards deep mid-wicket and picks up a couple before the fielder can come across and clean it up.
  • 49.4 Nicely bowled! Yorker outside off, Shami looks to dig it out but misses it. Chahar does well to call Shami for a bye and he reaches in safely.
  • 49.4 NO BALL! Called for height! A full toss above waist height! Chahar slogs this away but finds Cottrell at deep square leg who takes it easily. Chahar looks at the square leg umpire, who after waiting for some time, tells Chahar to wait. The replays roll in and it shows that it is a no ball. A Free Hit will follow.
  • A check for No ball is being carried out. It looks like a full toss above waist height. Lets see what the replays have to say. And yes, it is a No ball.
  • Mohammed Shami walks in to bat.
  • 49.3 OUT! CAUGHT! Dube has to go but he had no choice but attempt to go for the big ones. Good length ball on off, Dube goes for a wild heave but goes off the upper half of the bat. It goes way up in the air and Holder at long on takes a simple catch. West Indies are having a good last few overs here.
  • 49.2 Full delivery outside off, Dube thrashes wide of long off for a couple.d comes across from long off and cleans it up.
  • 49.1 Good length ball on middle, Chahar works it to deep mid-wicket and picks up a single.
  • 48.6 Another short delivery on off, Chahar looks to slog it away but gets an inside edge towards square leg. They pick up a single. 279/7

  • 48.4 Short ball on middle, Dube pulls it to deep square leg and picks up a single.

  • Deepak Chahar is the new man in.
  • 47.5 Length ball outside off, pushed towards point for one.
  • 47.4 OUT! RUN OUT! Now, what has happened there? A bizarre situation it seems on the field and everyone is in a frenzy. A yorker on middle and leg, Jadeja jams it out towards silly mid off and takes off for a run. Roston Chase runs in to get the ball, collects it and hits at the non-striker's end. A mild appeal follows but nothing much follows after that as the bowler gets ready to bowl his next ball. In the meantime, the replays are showed on the big screen which show that Jadeja was in fact out of his crease when the ball hit the stumps. On watching that, the West Indies insist on taking it upstairs. After a long, long time, the umpire obliges and the inevitable follows as the third umpire adjudges Jadeja run out. He walks back but he is not happy at all. Neither is Indian skipper Virat Kohli who almost walks onto the field following the who mishap. This will surely be a talked-about moment in days to come.
  • What happened there? The onfield umpire has gone to the third umpire for a run out after being asked by the West Indian players. At first the West Indies players were not interested much but after seeing the on-screen replays they have asked the onfield umpire to go to the third umpire.
  • Shivam Dube, the debutant is the new man in.
  • 47.3 OUT! CAUGHT! Kieron Pollard takes the catch and Kedar Jadhav has to walk back now. Good length ball on middle and off, Jadhav looks to loft this one into the long on fence but mistimes it and does not get the power on it. Pollard at long on takes a simple catch running to his left and India are 6 wickets down now.
  • 47.2 Another very slow bouncer by Jadhav, he looks to play at it but misses and the ball goes to the keeper on the bounce.

  • 46.3 On the pads, Jadhav flicks it towards mid-wicket and sets off for a run. Jadeja wants two and Jadhav somehow completes it.

  • 45.5 Jadhav drives this one towards long off and takes a run.
  • 45.4 Full delivery on middle, Jadeja pushes this one down to long on for one.
  • 45.3 Very full ball around middle and leg, Jadhav looks to go deep in his crease and loft this over mid-wicket but misses to get hit on the pad. The West Indies players appeal but the umpire is unmoved. In the meantime the batters steal a leg bye. Ball Tracker later shows that it would have been umpire's call had West Indies taken the review.
  • 45.2 This time on middle and leg, Jadhav pushes it towards long on and an easy couple for Jadhav.
  • 45.1 Back of a length ball on off, pulled towards mid-wicket for one.
  • 44.6 The batsman has driven it straight down the ground. They have run through for a single. 250 up for India. 250/5

  • 43.5 Wide! Down the leg side, Jadhav does not fiddle with it.
  • 43.4 FOUR! Good shot by Kedar Jadhav! Invention at its best! Jadhav first tries to make room but Joseph does well to follow him. Jadhav does well to adjust and lofts this one towards deep square leg and the ball races into the fence.

  • 43.2 On the pads, worked towards square leg for one.

  • 39.6 The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. 216/5
  • 39.5 SIX! If Pant cannot connect to a slower delivery, Jadhav says he can. Slower short delivery outside off, Jadhav waits for it and pulls it with disdain over the deep mid-wicket region for a maximum.
  • Ravindra Jadeja walks out to bat, replacing Rishabh Pant. Jadeja and Jadhav need to combine here and give India a good finish in the last 10 overs.
  • 39.4 OUT! CAUGHT! The two set batsmen are now back in the hut. It is Pant's time to make his way back. This is good bowling but after getting a boundary of the previous ball, was there any need to play this? Slower length delivery on off, Pant is too early into his flick shot and can only hit this towards Hetmyer at deep square leg. He makes no mistake. It was an excellent knock from the youngster but needed to stay there till the end. Pollard is ecstatic. Can they make a comeback?
  • 39.3 FOUR! Fullish delivery outside off, Pant leans forward and drives it through covers for a boundary. The fielder tries to come across but fails to reach it on time.
  • 39.2 MISFIELD! Short of a length delivery on middle, Pant pulls it away but he finds Pooran at mid-wicket.

  • 38.3 Full delivery on middle, Pant drives it to long off for a single.
  • 38.2 BEATEN! Full delivery outside off, Pant looks to dig it out but fails to get any bat on it. There was a stifled appeal for caught behind but nothing from the umpire. There was a noise as well but that may have been the bat hitting the ground.
  • 38.1 Full delivery outside off just inside the wide line, Pant lets it go thinking it will be given as a wide but the umpire thinks differently.
  • 37.6 Full delivery outside off, Pant drives it to deep cover and picks up a single. 199/4

  • 36.5 Short ball outside off, Jadhav sways away from it.
  • Kedar Jadhav walks in to replace Shreyas Iyer who departed after a fine knock.
  • 36.4 OUT! CAUGHT! Soft, soft dismissal for Iyer. A century was in the offing but it was not to be. Slower delivery on middle, Iyer fails to pick it up and flicks it uppishly towards mid-wicket. It goes straight into the hands of Pollard. End of an excellent innings from Shreyas Iyer. He came in at a time when India were in trouble and now has led India to a good score on this slow pitch.
  • 36.3 Better from Joseph! Very full delivery, almost a yorker. Pant digs it out to long off for a single.

  • 36.1 Full delivery outside off, Pant drives it to long off and picks up a single.

  • 35.5 Excellent batting and fielding! Another short one outside off, Pant cuts it off the back foot to deep point and picks up a couple. Keemo Paul comes across and saves it before it reaches the ropes. The umpires go to check whether his foot is fine and Paul is fine on that front.
  • 35.4 Brilliant fielding this! Totally different end of the spectrum! Short of a length delivery outside off, Pant cuts it to point and it was racing to the fence but Hayden Walsh dives full-stretch to his right to stop the ball. Saved a certain boundary there.
  • 35.3 DROPPED! What has Sheldon Cottrell done here? Pant has been given a golden opportunity! Good length ball outside off, Pant looks to go for the aerial route but does not get enough on it.

  • 35.1 Starts with a full delivery on middle, Iyer defends it out.
  • Kieron Pollard, the skipper has brought himself into the attack. Can he break this stand which has been taking the game away from them?

  • 33.3 Floated on off, pushed towards the cover region.
  • 33.2 A bit uppish! Shortish ball on the leg side, Iyer rocks back and pulls but uppishly and wide of the man at square leg. Nicholas Pooran in the deep cleans it up as the batters take two.
  • 33.1 SIX! BOOM! Out of the park! What a strike by Iyer! Floated ball on middle and off, Iyer gets on the front foot and dispatches it into the crowd for a biggie near mid-wicket.

  • 32.3 FIFTY! Maiden fifty for Pant in ODIs. This was needed considering India were in trouble at 80 for 3. He gets there by pulling this short delivery on middle to deep square leg for a couple. This is a golden opportunity for Pant to score a well made century and cement his place in the ODI squad. He raises his pad and soaks in the applause from his teammates.

  • A Free Hit will follow as there were more than 4 fielders outside the 30-yard circle.
  • 31.4 No ball! Length ball outside off, Iyer plays this one towards the point region to get to his 50. A very well compiled innings this by him and India need him as well as Pant to go big here. A no ball has been signaled by the leg umpire as there were more than 4 fielders outside the 30-yard circle.
  • 31.3 Another one outside off, the ball goes off the outside off of Pant's bat towards third man for a single. 150 up for India and the strike is now with Shreyas Iyer who is on 49.
  • 31.2 Outside off, left alone by Pant.
  • 31.1 Good cricket all around! Full ball on off, Pant drives this one beautifully through the cover region. Nicholas Pooran in the deep runs across and does well to mop it up. A couple for the batters.
  • Drinks! This time it is a good hour of play for the hosts as the 50-plus run stand first between Iyer and Sharma and then between Iyer and Pant has carried India to safer shores. The latter combination are amidst a 67-run stand and will be looking to build on it. Jason Holder to continue the proceedings post the mini-break.

  • Keemo Paul is into the attack. 2-0-9-0 are his figures so far. A slight halt in play as a new visitor is on the ground, a stray dog who is taking a stroll inside. One of the ground staff is chasing the dog around the park but the dog is in no mood to get caught. Hetmyer too tries his luck but the dog evades him too and finally runs off the field by himself.

Sharma looks to pull but neither gets the timing nor the elevation on it. The ball goes straight to Pollard who was standing in front of square leg who takes a simple catch.

  • 16.1 Length ball outside off, pushed towards point.

Alzarri Joseph is now into the attack after the mini-break.

  • 12.2 Tossed up on off, pushed towards the cover region.
  • 12.1 FOUR BYES! Woah! What happened there? Missed everything, nutmegging Shai Hope as well. A full toss served by Walsh outside off, Rohit goes for the drive but misses.

  • 11.6 Outside off, left alone by Iyer. 46/2
  • 11.5 FOUR! Uppish but safe! Full delivery on middle, Iyer drives it but does so uppishly. Luckily for him, it is wide of the mid on fielder and goes into the long on fence.

  • 7.1 On the pads, worked towards the leg side.
  • Who will walk out to bat next? Shreyas Iyer looks like the most likely candidate. And yes, it is him. A great opportunity for him to make his mark with the skipper back in the dugout.
  • 6.6 OUT! CHOPPED ON! The crowd goes silent here in Chennai. What a blow though this is for the hosts. Cottrell is surely having a game out there with two wickets in the same over. Another slower length ball, outside off, Kohli looks to run it down to third man but is early into his shot. It goes off the inside edge and hits the leg stump. Big, big wicket this as Kohli has been in terrific touch especially against the West Indies and this has given the visitors an upper hand in this game. 25/2

  • 6.3 Good length ball outside off, Kohli does not fiddle with it and leaves it alone.

Rahul is early into his flick and the ball goes off the leading edge towards silly mid on. Hetmyer comes ahead from mid-wicket and takes the simplest of catches. Good start for Cottrell and West Indies. Cottrell is ecstatic and brings out his trademark salute.
  • 6.2 WIDE! Tries to take the pace off the ball but loses control of it. Bowls a full one way outside off, Rahul lets it go to the keeper.
  • 6.1 Slower delivery, 118.8 kph, outside off, Rohit guides it to third man and picks up a single.

  • 5.2 Good length delivery on middle, Sharma defends it out.
  • 5.1 Some hesitation again! Good length ball on off, Rahul guides it towards left of backward point and takes off for a single. Both the batsman stop in the middle before continuing on the run. Walsh has a shy at the striker's end but misses it.
  • 4.6 FOUR! Pulled away! Short of a length delivery on middle, Sharma stands stall and pulls it away but does not get it off the middle of the bat. It, though has enough to go into the mid-wicket fence. 17/0

  • 1.2 FOUR! SHOT! KL Rahul seems to pick up from where he left off in the T20I series! Short of a length, way outside off, Rahul stands tall and cuts it through the point region for a boundary. India are underway with a four. Holder needs to get a bit closer to Rahul here.
  • 1.1 Good length ball outside off, Rahul shoulders arms to this one.
  • Jason Holder to partner Sheldon Cottrell from the other end.

  • India (Playing XI) - Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Kedar Jadhav, Shivam Dube (DEBUT), Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Deepak Chahar and Kuldeep Yadav.
  • West Indies (Playing XI) - Shai Hope (WK), Sunil Ambris, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Roston Chase, Kieron Pollard (C), Jason Holder, Hayden Walsh, Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell and Keemo Paul.
  • Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, says that he is very happy with the outcome of the toss because he wanted to bat first anyway. Mentions how the pitch is dry and it can slow down as the game goes on. Says that he is surprised by his counterpart's decision to bowl first. Adds they wanted to bat first because the longer format supports them as they cannot keep up the same high tempo going on for 50 overs. States that the West Indies are an explosive team but he backs his bowlers to keep them under check and pressurize them. Informs that Yuzvendra Chahal, Manish Pandey, Shardul Thakur and Mayank Agarwal miss out on the playing XI.
  • Kieron Pollard, the West Indies skipper, says that the sun is out and it will be interesting to see how the pitch reacts. Adds that they want to give a good account of themselves and they look forward to this challenge. Says that they are here to win. States that Evin Lewis is out with the knock he suffered in the last T20I and they want to give him a couple of days of extra rest. Khary Pierre, Brandon King and Romario Shephard also miss out. Adds that they are going with 2 spinners and a couple of medium pacers.
  • Toss - Up goes the coin and it lands in favour of the visitors. West Indies win the toss and choose to field first.
  • Pitch report - Sanjay Manjrekar is down with Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar for the pitch report. Manjrekar suggests that the pitch looks a little rough, not smooth and shiny. Further adds that there is not a blade of grass on the surface. Also states that in the last 7 matches the teams that have batted first has won 6 times. Mr. Gavaskar says that the pitch in Chennai was one of the fastest in his days but over the years, it has slowed down. Adds that the pitch is a bit hard and there will be good carry on offer. Adds that there is a little bit of black soil on the track and suggests that 260-270 is the average score.
  • 2-1 was the margin by which India won the T20I series. It's now time for the ODIs. The hosts are the clear favourites to win but one should never take the Windies lightly. They have some good players in their ranks with Shai Hope and the rest being in good form. They had a great series against Afghanistan in Lucknow beating them 3-0. That series might have given them time to acclimatize to the conditions but it will be a difficult task to beat this Indian side. The Men in Blue are on top of their game and are looking really good at the moment. KL Rahul is set to open the batting along with Rohit Sharma while the middle order is pretty much settled. Deepak Chahar, after some impressive showings in the T20Is is back in the ODI squad and with Mohammed Shami, they will lead the bowling attack. There was some rain on the previous two days in Chennai but the forecast looks good for today. Will India dominate the game or will the Calypso Kings surprise one and all? Toss and team updates in a while.

India Vs West Indies Live Score (ODI) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • That's all from this game! West Indies surprised one and all by winning this game. Nobody expected them to win but Hetmyer had other ideas. The Men in Blue would be disappointed with their performance especially their fielding and bowling. The next match takes place at Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. Join us for at 1330 Local (0800 GMT).
  • Shimron Hetmyer, the MAN OF THE MATCH. He says that he does not where his power comes from, to be honest. Adds that he was just looking to get it over the ropes. On him being known to play a brisk innings, Hetmyer says that he is looking to be more consistent. Adds that he was backing himself and was not looking to keep the ball down. Adds that getting and a hundred feels sweet. On being released from Bangalore in the Indian T20I league, Hetmyer says that he is not thinking about that too much.
  • Kieron Pollard, the West Indian skipper says that they know what talent Hetmyer possesses and he knows his responsibilites. Adds that he is playing since 18 months and that has given him experience to play in these condition. Further goes on to say they know which areas they need to work on and it has been a total teamwork. On Sheldon Cottrell, he says that with experience comes confidence and he has performed well since the last few months. On the run out, Pollard says that the right decision was made.
  • Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper. He says that the form of Iyer and Pant are good signs for us. Adds that with the T2OI World cup coming, that gave them a chance to experiment. Further goes on to say that, Him and Rohit failed and that gave Pant and Iyer an opportunity. Further says that they played smart cricket. Goes on to say that he felt 6 bowlers were enough but the visitors batted really fell and nothing can be taken away from them. On the run out of Jadeja, Kohli says that once the appeal is made and the onfield umpire gives it not out, nobody from outside the field can tell the umpire to go upstairs.
  • The West Indian bowlers were top of their game with Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph and Sheldon Cottrell picking up two wickets each. They used the slower deliveries to perfection in the death overs and just when India were looking to get to 300. They gave just 38 runs in their three overs. Overall they will be happy with their performance today. Stay tuned for the presentation...
  • Early on in the day, India were restricted to 287 after their top 3 failed to make a mark. It needed a Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant special to get them to that score. A good cameo from Kedar Jadhav was also helpful. Apart from that nothing can be spoken about the batting.
  • Coming to the Indians bowling, they were very poor with the ball. They kept on bowling short balls and they kept on getting punished. Deepak Chahar picked up the early wicket of Sunil Ambris but what followed was carnage. The hosts bowlers had no clue to what happened and all were carted to all parts of the ground. Even the spinners were disappointing. The fielding was disappointing as they dropped a couple of chances and also a run out chance had also gone begging.
  • Shai Hope says that he is not smiling too much as he is cramping a bit but he is happy with the victory. Adds that Hetmyer batted well and he was just anchoring the innings. Mentions the pitch was a bit of a slow turner but he adjusted his innings accordingly. Hope also says the partnership between him and Hetmyer was crucial.
  • Phew! What a performance from the West Indies! Especially Shimron Hetmyer. His innings was the one which actually gave the momentum to the innings. He was exceptional, terrifying and just took the game away from the Indians. The left-hander hit seven sixes in his innings and never once looked like getting out. One chance was given by him though when he hit one straight down the throat of long on but Iyer made a mess of it but by then it was too late. Shai Hope was though was not far behind, he took time to get to his century but was the ideal support for a rampaging Hetmyer. The visitors lost the early wicket of Sunil Ambris early on but then Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope stitched a 218-run stand to get them to safer shores. Once Hetmyer fell after a mammoth knock, Hope and Pooran finished it off with off with a 62-run stand. One of the centurions, Shai Hope is down for an interview with Harsha Bhogle.

The required run rate is above 6 but with two set batsmen at the crease, it should be easy peasy for the visitors.

Kohli then gets up, recovers to pick the ball up and then does not see where to throw it. He is off balance and throws a poor one to the keeper which is way wide. Pant runs towards it, dives but by then it is too late to send Hetmyer packing. A dropped catch earlier and now a run out. How costly will that prove?
