India vs West Indies Highlights And Cricket Score 1st Match - ODI Summary

End of Over : 47.5 WI: 291/2

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. 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. States that he was looking to just play the new ball and try to bat for long periods. 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.
