- August 02, 2023 01:19Athanaze left clueless
Drift and deception from Kuldeep and Athanaze is left befuddled. Pitches in line with the stump and moves in a tinge to have him bowled.

Unadkat into the attack. Over the wicket and forces an outside edge from Carty. Gill takes a low catch at first slip. The third umpire takes a look at adjudjes it out.
- August 02, 2023 00:21WI 34/3 in 10 overs
Athanaze and Carty stabilise the innings for West Indies. But the run rate is barely above three, not ideal while chasing a total as big as today’s.
- August 02, 2023 00:04Three for Mukesh!!
Mukesh makes it three. Extracts movement off the seam and danger-man Hope edges it for Gill to take a safe catch. India in total control.

Brandon King and Kyle Mayers will kickstart the chase for the home side.
- August 01, 2023 22:59India ends with 351/5
Hardik on a roll. He started slow, but he is ending on a flourish. Length ball from Shepherd and he pumps it over extra cover for a six. Slow bouncer next up and Hardik swats it to the midwicket fence for a boundary. The next one is another length one and Hardik lofts it straight back for another six!!
Shepherd jams in a yorker next up to get a dot ball. Last ball of the innings and Hardik gets a couple to get India to 351.
- August 01, 2023 22:53IND 333/5 in 49 overs
Six more from Hardik. On the slot from Seales and pumped it straight down the gorund. Joseph drifts onto Hardik’s pads and he flicks it away with disdain. SIX!!
Hardik takes a double next and that is his fifty. Fifth of his ODI career.
- August 01, 2023 22:42WEnd of SKY
Low full toss from Suryakumar somehow manages to slice it beyond backward point for a six. Wristy shot and that is 300 for India.
Slight delay in the game. Romario Shepherd is struggling with his knee, midway through the 47th over. He continues and gets SKY’s wicket, thanks to a diving catch by Cariah.
Suryakumar Yadav c Cariah b Shepherd 35 (30b 2x4 2x6)
IND 310/4 in 47 overs
- August 01, 2023 22:31IND 295/4 in 45 overs
SKY manages another boundary, this time against Shepherd.

- August 01, 2023 22:19IND 280/4 in 43 overs
Hardik Pandya lets it loose. He smokes Cariah for a six to finally set off the death over hunt. India still has a lot of batting left in the hut.
Suryakumar too joins the party with a four and six against Alzarri Joseph.
- August 01, 2023 22:10IND 257/4 in 41 overs
Suryakumar takes a single against Seales and that brings up the 250 for India. West Indies bowlers have succeeded in bringing the run rate under 6.2, after India was cruising at 7+ at one point.

Motie is finally rewarded with a wicket, in his last over. He draws a false shot from Shubman Gill and Cariah completes an easy catch at midwicket.

- August 01, 2023 21:56IND 243/3 in 38 overs
India’s runrate is plummetting. Hardik has gone into his shell after starting strongly, while Moties ties Gill down to a maiden. This loss of momentum might prove to be costly.
- August 01, 2023 21:44IND 235/3 in 35 overs
Skipper Hardik Pandya is the new batter for India. He starts off well. A well-timed straight drive against Alzarri Joseph gives him his first boundary. Gill, at the other end, has slowed down a bit.
Motie, who has been the most economical of the West Indies bowlers, delivers another quiet over. Just a single from the over.
- August 01, 2023 21:30WSamson falls!
Cariah with some flight and Samson comes charging down. He connects that well and it is a huge six. He continues to take the charge, adding a four and a double to round off a good over for India.
Samson soon gets to his fifty, with a late cut for a double. But he is dismissed the very next ball. Tries to lift Shepher over the infield, but can’t clear Hetmyer at mid off.
- August 01, 2023 21:17IND 208/2 in 30 overs
200 up for India. Samson celebrates it with a cut shot, which skids away to the fence. That also brings up the 50-run partnership.
- August 01, 2023 21:10Samson Special!
- August 01, 2023 21:09IND 195/2 in 28 overs
A touch full from Seales and Samson deposits him deep into the mid wicket stands. Pure timing there from Samson.
Terrible fielding from Seales. Gill plays a leg glance and Seales chases it down, before failing to gather it properly, gifting a boundary. To make it even worse, Gill hits a late cut next ball to add another four.
- August 01, 2023 21:00IND 178/2 in 26 overs
Alzarri Joseph fires a quick one into Samson’s pads. West Indies players appeal with verve, but the umpire doesn’t relent. A review is taken and Samson is saved by umpire’s call.
- August 01, 2023 20:51IND 171/2 in 24 overs
Sanju Samson walks in and he takes off immediately. Cariah with one that is not full enough, but Samson doesn’t need it to be. Lofts it over long on for a six, the second ball he faced. He goes after Cariah again a few ball later. This time he clears the long off fence.
- August 01, 2023 20:46WGaikwad caught at slip
Hope brings in a slip for Gaikwad, hoping for a mistake and he is rewarded. Joseph pitches one on good length and Gaikwad can only edge it to King. Second wicket down for India.
Ruturaj Gaikwad c King b Joseph 8 (14b 1x4 0x6)
- August 01, 2023 20:40IND 149/1 in 22 overs
Ruturaj Gaikwad is the new batter for India. He takes his time to settle down and that helps West Indies to sneak in a few quiet overs. Cariah is exerting great control with his leg spin, with Alzarri Joseph in support from the other end.
- August 01, 2023 20:30WCariah removes Kishan
West Indies breaks through, finally. Cariah loops one and Kishan doesn’t get to the pitch of the ball. Easy stumping for Hope and it is a fabulous knock by Kishan.
Ishan Kishan st Hope b Cariah 77 (64b 8x4 3x6)
- August 01, 2023 20:27IND 141/0 in 19 overs
Kishan rips into Shepherd. Another pull shot and another six. He follows that with a four, albeit a lucky one. Edged and it flies past the keeper. Kishan is already into his 70s.
- August 01, 2023 20:17IND 122/0 in 17 overs
Kishan and Gill continue to motor on. The West Indies bowlers are not posing much of a challenge for the duo.
On the pad from Shepherd and Kishan flicks it away for another four.
- August 01, 2023 20:0250Fifty for Ishan Kishan
Short from Shepherd and Kishan clears the mid wicket fence for another six. This has been some start from the Indian openers.
Kishan soon gets to half-century. Third of the series for the left-hander.
India 102/0 in 14 overs
- August 01, 2023 19:54IND 91/0 in 12 overs
First six of the match.
Short from Joseph and Kishan pulls it beyond the square leg for a six. A leg-bye boundary adds to West Indies’ misery.
Moties continues. Kept it tight until the last ball, when he offered a fuller one to Kishan, who smacked it straight past the bowler for a four.
- August 01, 2023 19:46IND 73/0 in 10 overs
The onslaught continues. Gill punishes Joseph to two boundaries. Joseph too adds to pile of runs with a wide, which ran way to the fence. India’s runrate creeping close to eight.
Spin introduced in the form of Motie. He brings a semblance of control. Gives away just four runs
- August 01, 2023 19:35IND 52/0 in 8 overs
Alzarri Joseph into the attack. He starts with a tight over. Just three runs from his first over. But Mayers continues to leak boundaries from the other end. Not much pace and a tad shot and Kishan launches it over the infield for another boundary. Gill too takes on Mayers. Off-pace on the off side and he guides it past point for another four. Fifty partnership.
- August 01, 2023 19:25IND 37/0 in 6 overs
Kishan goes on the offensive. Back-to-back boundaries for the left-hander against Mayers. Both straight down the ground. This should push for a bowling change from Shai Hope.
- August 01, 2023 19:20IND 27/0 in 5 overs
On the pad from Seales and Gill guides it past the 30-yard circle for a couple. Seales pulls his length a little back and Gill brings out his short-arm jab. No stopping that one. FOUR!! Steady start from the Indian openers.
- August 01, 2023 19:14IND 15/0 in 3 overs
Wide from Mayers and Kishan flays at it. It is straight at Carty at point. But he fails to hold on to it.
Slightly short from Seales and Gill latches onto it with a pull shot. FOUR!!
- August 01, 2023 19:04IND 9/0 in 1 over
Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan open the innings for India. Seales with the ball for West Indies.
Kishan starts with a straight drive which fetches him a couple of runs. Next one is full on the off and Kishan leans into the drive. Through the gap for four. Confident start.

Jasprit Bumrah will make a return to competitive cricket as India captain in its three-match T20I tour to Ireland in mid-August as the BCCI announced a 16-member squad on Monday.

Bumrah will be leading India for the first time in a limited-overs series while Ruturaj Gaikwad was named his deputy ahead of his upcoming Asian Games stint as captain. The selectors have opted to rest all of the senior team members with the impending Asia Cup, due to begin a week after the Ireland series.READ MORE

India will be hoping the experiment of trying out Sanju Samson and Surykumar Yadav in the middle-order works when it takes on the West Indies in the ODI series decider on Tuesday.
India, which has not lost an ODI series to West Indies since 2006, faces a rare series defeat after its move to rest skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli backfired in the second game in Barbados.
As head coach Rahul Dravid pointed after the six-wicket loss on Saturday, India is looking at the bigger picture ahead of next month’s Asia Cup and the upcoming World Cup will have another game to see the kind of impact the younger players can make in a must-win match.
