Centuries from Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope helped the West Indies chase India’s target of 288 runs quite easily in the first ODI in Chennai on Sunday. With this win, the visitors took 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Hetmyer and Hope stitched a 218-run partnership for the second wicket which put the West Indies in a commanding position after a poor start. Nicholas Pooran finished off the things in style with back-to-back boundaries, with more than two overs left. Earlier, Hope and Hetmyer showed great maturity and batted cautiously. Hope rotated strike, while Hetmyer batted more aggressively to rebuild the visitors’ innings. Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer scored half-centuries while Kedar Jadhav also scored crucial runs towards the end to help India set a challenging total. (SCORECARD)

  • Three leg byes!

    Kuldeep bowls on the pads and Shai Hope fails to get his bat on it and the ball races towards the fine leg fence where Dube stops it from rolling over the rope. The West Indies got three extra runs. 

  • Fifty for Shai Hope!

    Shai Hope brings up his 15th ODI fifty with a single on the last ball of the 30th over.
