India vs West Indies Watch Live Free Cricket Streaming After Rampaul's 86 66b, 6x4, 6x6 took the West Indies to , India overhauled the target through the combined excellence of the young duo, who added runs in India won with 11 balls to spare. Early wickets Beginning its chase, the host lost opener Parthiv Patel and number three Gautam Gambhir cheaply and would have been in further distress had Virender Sehwag not been dropped twice when he was on one by Darren Sammy and 15 by Darren Bravo.
The teams trooped off for a rain delay after Bravo fluffed the chance and Sehwag was eventually taken at the long-off boundary for 26 35b, 3x4 by Andre Russell off Marlon Samuels when play resumed after 45 minutes. Kohli and Sharma motored along and India reached in the 21st over.
Kohli lived through a sharp caught and bowled chance off Samuels when he was 40 and completed his half-century in 61 balls. Rohit too continued his good form and completed his second fifty in as many matches with a square-cut boundary off Sammy.
India needed 98 in 15 overs when the batting Powerplay was opted for and 38 runs were taken from it. Another hundred Kohli reached three figures, his second hundred on the ground and eighth overall, in balls.
The centurion was caught behind off Rampaul, but India was assured a lead in the five-match series as Rohit stuck around to the end and even carted a huge six over the head of Kemar Roach in the closing stages.
Earlier, Rampaul's belligerence at the rear ensured that Lendl Simmons' solidity at the top was not wasted. The number 10 batsman helped the West Indies recover from a precarious for nine.
Rampaul and Roach 24, 36b, 3x4 thwarted India for 99 priceless runs in 14 overs, the highest stand of the innings, as well as the third-highest last-wicket partnership in ODI history. Record Rampaul's effort was the best ODI score ever by a number ten batsman.
The tailender smote three sixes off R. Ashwin, one against Ravindra Jadeja and two — including a massive morale-boosting hit over the sight-screen off the last ball — against the testing pace of Varun Aaron to supplement opener Simmons' unimpeachable 78 , 8x4, 1x6. India had a perfect start to the match, which was delayed by 15 minutes due to a mild drizzle.
No overs were lost and Virender Sehwag elected to bowl, mindful perhaps of the evening dew. Another scalp went begging in the sixth over when Rohit Sharma, at second slip, dropped a sitter from Marlon Samuels off Yadav. The reprieve was temporary and the batsman succumbed to the same bowler in his next over, caught by a diving Suresh Raina at third slip.
Double-wicket maiden Simmons and Darren Bravo steadied the ship somewhat by adding 30 in 6. Bravo sought to clear the infield only to find Ashwin at mid-on.
On the fifth ball of the same over, Danza Hyatt was caught behind for a duck. Yadav returned for his second spell to dismiss Denesh Ramdin, leaving the West Indies on 67 for five in 17 overs.
Kieron Pollard joined Simmons and on them fell the responsibility of salvaging the innings. Spin was introduced in the form of Jadeja in the 20th over.
Ashwin was brought on from the other end, and Pollard and Simmons associated for 56 runs in 7. But Ashwin one for 74 had the last laugh when Pollard's forward defence ballooned into the hands of Parthiv. Jadeja claimed both skipper Sammy and Andre Russell, and ran out Simmons, who had looked untroubled throughout, with a searing throw from the boundary.
This brought together Rampaul and Roach and the confounding alliance they forged took the West Indies to , which in the end proved insufficient against the might of India's batting.
Yadav three for 38 and Jadeja two for 39 and Vinay two for 43 were the pick of the bowlers. Scoreboard: West Indies: L. Simmons run out 78 b, 8x4, 1x6 , A. Barath c Parthiv b Yadav 0 8b , M.
