INDIA 237/9 IN 50 OVERS

INNINGS RECAP

A clinical all-round show by the West Indies bowlers has restricted India to a below-par 237 for nine. The host was in early trouble at 43 for three after Odean Smith - replacing Kieron Pollard - removed Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli in the same over. KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav then paired for a gritty 91-run stand for the fourth wicket, showing glimpses of a middle-order resurgence, before the vice-captain was run out. Suryakumar scored a splendid fifty but wickets at regular intervals kept India's run-scoring in check.

IND 237/9 in 50 overs: FOUR! Slightly too full and straight by Joseph and Chahal chips it straight over the bowler to the boundary. Two more for Chahal as he drags it to mid on. The make a dash for the first one and get the second on a misfield. Single at mid off next ball. Prasidh swings and misses and they scamper for one bye. Bouncer to end the over and the innnigs.

IND 229/9 in 49 overs: OUT! Big wicket as Hooda holes out. Extra bounce again for Holder and Hooda hands it to deep point trying to cut a slower one. Deepak Hooda c Akeal Hosein b Jason Holder 29(25b 2x4 0x6). Krishna the last man in. Chahal gets a couple with a top edge to fine leg.

IND 226/8 in 48 overs: OUT! Siraj edges behind to Hope. It was close to off stump as Siraj looked to guide it to third man, but the extra bounce got his outside edge. Mohammed Siraj c Shai Hope b Alzarri Joseph 3(5b 0x4 0x6). Siraj had just taken two off the previous ball and Hooda looks disappointed with himself after that dismissal for allowing the second. Chahal pushes to mid off first ball and completes a very risky single. Hooda guides one to third man for a single. Chahal defends a straight length ball but it seems to have flicked his flap and WI reviews. Replays confirm impact was outside off and he survives.

IND 222/7 in 47 overs: FOUR! Hooda flicked that off his toes to the fine leg boundary. That will lift the spirits as only six had come off the over until then. Holder varying the pace nicely to keep the batters guessing and giving them little pace to work with.

IND 212/7 in 46 overs: Joseph with the ball. Three singles to start the over. Bounce outside off and Thakur is beaten trying to cut it over the keeper. FOUR! Lucky boundary for Thakur, getting a top edge on a miscued hook and over the keeper for four runs. OUT! Thakur loses shape trying to slog a length ball on the off and skies it point. Shardul Thakur c Shamarh Brooks b Alzarri Joseph 8(15b 1x4 0x6).

IND 205/6 in 45 overs: FOUR! Hooda finally releases the pressure. Back off on leg, makes room and chips it over covers for a boundary. A couple more for him next ball at long on. Hooda goes inside out again but finds the man at long off who keeps it to one. Two more singles and a dot to end the over. Allen has bowled out, finishing with 1 for 50 in 10 overs.

IND 196/6 in 44 overs: Thakur gets an outside edge, short of short third man as the ball grips into the surface. Tidy stuff from Hosein, cramping Thakur outside off, making it difficult to even find the ones.

IND 194/6 in 43 overs: Spinners from both ends seems at the death seems to be working perfectly for West Indies. Allen continues to be economical, giving just two runs. Both batters are still new to the crease and they will need some time before they can explode.

IND 192/6 in 42 overs: Hosein from the other end. Short first up and he is lucky to get away with just the one at long-off. OUT! Sundar dances down the track and slogs it straight to the fielder at long on. Washington Sundar c Alzarri Joseph b Akeal Hosein 24(41b 1x4 0x6).

IND 186/5 in 41 overs: Allen continues. Hooda heaves outside off and doesn't get a hold of it and just a single at long off. Another brilliant over from Allen, conceding just three runs. The short of length ploy seems to be paying off on this wicket for the spinners.

IND 183/5 in 40 overs: Five runs from Holder's over. Hooda and Sundar work the singles on the off side.

IND 178/5 in 39 overs: OUT! Suryakumar gets a top edge on the sweep and skies it to Joseph at short fine leg. Suryakumar Yadav c Alzarri Joseph b Fabian Allen 64(83b 5x4 0x6). Hooda gets one off the first one at long off.

He keeps strike with a single.

IND 164/4 in 37 overs: A quiet over for India with just three singles coming. Allen has made a good comeback after going for runs early on. He is floating it up but the batters are not able to find the gaps driving the ball.

IND 161/4 in 36 overs: Joseph returns with the ball. Over the wicket to Sundar. Short of length, going across and Sundar leaves the first one. Tucks it away for one to fine leg next ball. Picked up from short of length by Suryakumar to deep square leg for a single and he gets to his fifty with that. Two more singles and a bouncer to Sundar to end the over.

IND 157/4 in 35 overs: Two singles from Allen's over. Suryakumar moves to 49 off 69 balls.

IND 155/4 in 34 overs: On a length by Odean and Sundar gets a thickish outside edge playing off the back foot. A single from the other as Odean keeps Sundar on a leash, keeping it outside off and short of length.

IND 154/4 in 33 overs: Suryakumar rocks back and cuts Allen for a single to bring up the 150 for India in 32.1 overs. Five singles from the over and Surya and Sundar look comfortable in the middle. The spinners are bowling on a benign line and length, easily letting through the runs.

IND 149/4 in 32 overs: Odean to Sundar, over the wicket. WIDE! Drifted too far on the off-side. Swivelled and pulled by Sundar for just a single at deep square leg. Beaten! A little bit of shape away outside off and Suryakumar is beaten trying to run it fine. Single for Suryakumar to end the over.

IND 146/4 in 31 overs: Allen over the wicket to Sundar. A thick outside edge to third man and he collects a couple. Drives it to long on for one more. Suryakumar looks to chip it over extra cover but a thick edge sends it to deep square leg and a brace for him. Two singles to end the over.

IND 139/4 in 30 overs: Washington Sundar is in at No. 6. FOUR! Drives Roach straight for a first-ball four. Glorious shot! Tucks it behind square for a single and keeps strike.

MATCH PREVIEW

KL Rahul is available for selection in the second ODI against the West Indies at the Narendra Modi Stadium here on Wednesday.

India had to opt for Ishan Kishan as the opening partner of captain Rohit Sharma in the first game. The youngster had a decent outing with a knock of 28.

As Rahul is back in the scheme of things, it remains to be seen if he replaces Ishan as the opener or prefers to bat in the middle order on a slower track.

The axe might fall on Ishan if Rahul opens, whereas debutant Deepak Hooda, who guided the team home with an unbeaten 26 in the first game, might have to sit out if Rahul chooses to bat in the middle-order. FULL PREVIEW
