Pollard gets to his fifty

Fifty for West Indies Captain Pollard, 53* from 44 balls including 3 fours and 4 sixes. A mature responsible innings from the captain. He has been the perfect foil to Nicholas Pooran and now taking on the baton from him to finish the innings.


Gone! Nicholas Pooran’s sensational innings of 89 comes to an end. Shardul Thakur picks up the wicket! It was a slower one which Pooran tried to cut uppishly but finds Jadeja in the deep. Has he given West Indies a fighting chance? WI 279/5 in 47.5 overs.


Highest 5th wkt p’ship for WI vs Ind:

116*N Pooran – K Pollard Cuttack 2019

109 M Samuels – R Powell Vijaywada 2002

108 G Logie – C Hooper Gwalior 1988

106 R Sarwan – S Chanderpaul Basseterre 2006


Three sensational hits from Nicholas Pooran. Powerful straight drive, conventional pull and an innovative one to follow that. Simply incredible batting this. 250 comes up. WI- 251/4 (45.5 ovs)

100-run partnership

Back to back boundaries for Pooran of Saini. The 100-run stand between Pooran-Polly comes up. Pooran has been particualrly impressive. He came at a difficult stage when West Indies was struggling with quick wickets. Pooran has played a more responsible role and he has been very consistent throughout this tournament with 75 in the last game at Vishakapatnam.

Pant drops another

A couple of them tough but Rishabh Pant has put down four catches in this innings. Day to forget for him behind the stumps. Pant has a very big initial movement, when he keeps to fast bowlers, towards the leg side of the batsmen.. therefore struggles when the ball goes the other side. technique needs to be worked upon

Pooran-Polly dealing in sixes

FIFTY FOR POORAN! That is smoked away. There is a fielder there but he is just a spectator like everyone else. Pooran gets to his fifty in style. Floated around off, Pooran smashes it over long off to get to his fifty.

Break in Play

Pollard not happy with something behind the sightscreen. The lights in the press box have been asked to be switched off. It is a problem in the eastern part of the country when the sun goes down to sight the ball at times. Meanwhile, Pooran and Pollard have pushed West Indies past 200. With nine overs still to go, how much should be enough on this track?

Final 10 coming up

The big hitting pair of Windies Skipper Pollard (18*) & Pooran (37*) look well set for the crucial last 10 overs. WI- 197/4, 40 overs Remember- Nicholas Pooran’s strike-rate in the last 10 overs of an innings is 142.4 in ODI cricket, the highest by a West Indian batsman in 2019 (min. 5 innings).


SIX! Kieron Pollard smashes Kuldeep Yadav to pick up up a much needed maximum for West Indies. But he is not done yet- six more for Pollard who’s gone over extra cover. It was flighted up at just under 80ks, turned back into Pollard from outside off and he just creamed it. WI- 178/4 after 37 ovs

DRS woes continue for IND!

Navdeep Saini with another ripper and it hits the toes of Kieron Pollard and the bowler thinks he has got his man. Loud appeal by the bowler, wicketkeeper joins him, but the umpire shows no interest. Virat Kohli after discussing with the bowler signals for DRS, but TV replay confirms that the impact was out of the line as India waste a review.

Saini’s yorker sends Chase packing on 38!

That’s wicket no two for the debutant as he sends Roston Chase packing on 38. A yorker from the bowler, which was coming at 139 kph and Chase fails to get his bat down in time. WI: 144/4 (31.3 overs)

Maiden ODI wicket for Navdeep Saini!

Navdeep Saini picks up his maiden ODI wicket as Shimron Hetmyer has to take the long walk back to the pavilion. A back of a length delivery coming at the stumps and Hetmyer tries to take an aerial route. He tries to pull the ball, connects it from the middle of the blade but the ball balloons up in the air, landing straight into the hands of Kuldeep Yadav, who was standing at the right place at the right time. The batsman departs after scoring 37 off 33. WI: 132/3 (29.2 overs)

Hetmyer muscles the ball into the stands!

A tossed up delivery by Kuldeep Yadav and Shimron Hetmyer muscles the ball into the stands towards the deep-midwicket region for a SIX. With this, West Indies also edge past the 100-run-mark. Hetmyer is playing on 19 from 21 deliveries, while his partner Chase is batting on 22 off 36 balls. WI 104-2 (26 overs)


Shai Hope, who scored 102*, 78, and 42, in the ongoing series against India missed out by four runs from breaking Brian Lara’s record of accumulating the most ODI runs by a Windies player in a calendar year.

The numbers are as follow:

1349: B Lara (1993)
1345: Shai Hope (2019)
1232: D Haynes (1985)
1231: V Richards (1985)
1217: C Gayle (2006)

Shami gets the big wicket of Hope!

Mohammed Shami gets the big wicket of Shai Hope as the Windies opener departs after scoring 42 off 50 deliveries. Shami pitches the ball right in the slot and it penetrates through the gap between bat and the pads, knocking off the middle stump on its way. WI: 70/2 (19.2 overs)


Ever since coming into the attack, Ravindra Jadeja has been teasing with Evin Lewis, and the Carribean batsman takes the bait in the last ball of the over and tries to go for the maximum. But he mistimes it and his shot lands in the safe hands of the debutant Navdeep Saini. The batsman walks off for 21. Roston Chase comes on. WI: 57/1 (15 overs)

Kuldeep comes into attack

After an expensive opening over, Navdeep Saini has followed it up with two overs filled with exceptional line and length that has made the Windies batsmen be on their backfoot, conceding just two runs. Kuldeep Yadav has also come into the attack, and concedes just four runs. WI: 49/0 (12 overs)

End of first powerplay

Evin Lewis ends the first powerplay by slamming a four straight down the ground off Mohammed Shami’s delivery as the pair help Windies reach 44/0 at the end of 10 overs. Lewis is batting on 18 from 31 balls, while his partner Hope is playing on 25 off 29 balls.

Navdeep Saini kicks off his ODI career!

Navdeep Saini kicks off his ODI career by conceding eight runs in his first over. He starts off with an over pitch delivery, just outside the off stumps and Evin Lewis slams him for a boundary straight down the ground. Lewis then drives an overpitched delivery by him towards the cover region for another boundary. Not a start to remember for the 27-year-old. WI: 30/0 (7 overs)

How close was that!

Mohammed Shami with a good length delivery and the ball comes angling towards Shai Hope, almost rolling on to the stumps. Lucky for Hope that the ball after taking the inside edge hits his thigh pad and rolls towards the on-side. WI: 22/0 (6 overs)

Expensive over by Shami!

A short of a length delivery and Shai Hope connects it right through the middle of his blade and the ball races to the square leg fence. An expensive over by Mohammed Shami as twelve runs come from it. WI: 16/0 (4 overs)

Strong start by seamers

The Indians start off well with both Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur keeping a tight length so far. Meanwhile, West Indies have opted for a cautious approach as plenty of discussion going on between the Windies pair present in the crease. WI: 1/0 (2 overs)


Shai Hope and Evin Lewis walk out in the middle to start the Windies innings. Shardul Thakur will kick-off the proceedings for the Men In Blue.
