India after losing the toss and asked to bat first posted a mammoth total of 387 from their 50 overs. Rohit scores his 8th 150+score, Rahul scored a century. This duo added 200+ for the opening stand.
Shreyas Iyer scoring his fourth consecutive half-century continues his purple patch in white-ball cricket. At the other end was Pant who looked in his recent best scored quick 39 of 16 balls. At one stage these two added 55 runs in two overs which helped in setting up a huge score.
Later Shami and Kuldeep bowled well to unsettle West Indies batsmen who fell in quick succession to these bowlers. While Shami picked two in two and Kuldeep got his second hattrick and is the first Indian to do so.
One minus point India would love to tick in the next match is their fielding. They had already dropped many catches and they do not have proof to show any improvement in this match as they dropped catches again.
