Out! Shimron Hetmyer was looking uncomfortable against Kuldeep Yadav and Kuldeep lives on that expectation by cleaning up the Carribean power hitter. Less than 100 needed now but West Indies have now entered danger territory. 

30 Jul, 00:49 (IST)

Out! Shardul Thakur is on a roll. This time he gets Alick Athanaze top edge one of his cross seam bouncers and West Indies lose another. They have been scoring fast but the regular falls of wickets will worry them. 

30 Jul, 00:29 (IST)

Out! No, it's never too late for Shardul Thakur. He removes both the West Indies openers in one over and opens up the game once more.  Brandon King is dismissed and India will hope the introduction of spinners will help them enter further into game.

Out! That's it. The struggle finally ends for the Indian tailenders and it is helped by Alzarri Joseph and Gudakesh Motie plays a big role in that as they picked up the last three wickets cleaning up the tail of India. West Indies have half the job done and need to show some application to win this game.

The rain seems to have stopped and the covers are coming off again. It seemed like a passing shower and we should get a revised start time once the Umpires inspect the situation of the outfield.

India won the Test series against West Indies 1-0 and currently playing them again in the three match ODI series and after the end of first ODI, they are leading the series 1-0. The 1st ODI at Bridgetown, Barbados was a chaotic one, which saw 15 wickets fall for a mere total of 229 runs. West Indies batted first and were tentative against the Indian seamers upfront, losing early wickets. Things worsened when the spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav came on, wrapping up their innings only on 114 runs. While chasing, India were not off to a great start as well. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma demoted themselves to give run scoring opportunities to the other batters in the team but it cannot be said that they grabbed that opportunity with both hands. Most of them struggled against the West Indies spinners and India lost 5 wickets while chasing the score. Only Ishan Kishan was the one who shined, scoring bulk of the runs. Virat Kohli’s Gesture Wins Hearts, Indian Batsman Provides Valuable Tips to West Indies Player Brandon King (Watch Video).

India will return in the 2nd ODI at the same venue eyeing to seal the series.

Batters have been tested against spinners in the 1st ODI. West Indies spinners Gudakesh Motie and Yannick Cariah broke through the Indian middle order and this will surely raise concerns. Suryakumar Yadav's form is another which will keep the management concerned ahead of the 2nd ODI. Although all of the steps can only be pursued in the 2nd ODI if it escapes the looming threat of rain over it. IND vs WI 2023: I Made My Debut for India, Batting at Number 7: Rohit Sharma on Batting Down Order in 1st ODI.
