The Indian team began the 3-match ODI series on the right note, comfortably easing past West Indies to take a 1-0 lead. The bowlers stole the limelight, putting in a performance that set the match up for the hosts.

Opting to bowl first, Rohit’s decision was backed by the bowlers. It was Mohammed Siraj who started the collapse by dismissing Shai Hope early. Washington Sundar was brought inside the powerplay and he took two wickets in a wonderful spell.

Once the first powerplay was done, Yuzvendra Chahal was put into the attack and he took two wickets in his very first over, that of Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard, virtually ending Windies’ challenge in the match.

Two more wickets fell and the visitors found themselves at 79/7. Jason Holder then combined with Fabian Allen to build a strong partnership before the last three wickets fell and the Windies folded up for 176.

It was quite an easy target for the hosts and skipper, Rohit Sharma ensured the same as he got the team off to a flyer. He got out on 60, a knock that included ten fours and a six.

Three more wickets fell in a cluster but Suryakumar Yadav played a brisk innings to take the team home. With that, India registered its first win of 2022, having lost the 3-match ODI series against South Africa 0-3.
