    Default India play West Indies in ODI series opener today


    India play West Indies in ODI series opener today

    KINGSTON: India enter the four-match ODI series against West Indies Friday knowing recent history suggests the low-ranked home side will be no pushover.


    West Indies, ranked No 8, whipped third-ranked India in this month''s World Twenty20 in England to help consign the defending champion to an embarrassing early exit.

    India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is keen to shake off the disappointment of the sobering Twenty20 campaign and continue the team''s good progress in the 50-over version of the game.

    "Of course, it is not an easy thing to forget, especially that 2007 World Cup," Dhoni said on Thursday. "It is always tough to forget that kind of tournament. It will be important for us to do well here."

    India also have troubled memories of its most recent trips to the Caribbean for one-dayers.

    West Indies captain Chris Gayle and coach John Dyson have conceded that the team is a tired unit ahead of the four-match ODI series against India after playing "a lot of cricket" in the past few months.

    "It''s a lot of cricket. It certainly is a lot of cricket. There''s not a lot of rest time in between," said Dyson.

    Gayle opined with his coach but said the team was coping with the workload well.

    "This is our job and our priority is to go and get things done. There might be a bit of fatigue, but our main focus is get out there in the middle and get the job done," Gayle said.

    "The guys have been home for just a bit but we are back as a unit and we have been playing some good competitive cricket."

    West Indies have been on the field since last year, hosting Australia and Sri Lanka before going to New Zealand for another Test and ODI series in December and January.

    Default India to take on West Indies today


    India to take on West Indies today

    KINGSTON: India today will take on Caribbean in the second ODI of the series with an intention to make a lead. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni''s brigade will face the Caribbean on Sabaina ground of Jamaica.

    India lead the series by 1-0 by winning the opening match. West Indies will leave no stone unturned to win the match.

    India would like to ensure victory for getting into strong position. Yuvraj Singh, who scored 131 in first match, is in form and will play an important to raise an impressive score.

    While for today''s game, all eyes are on Yuvraj, West Indies captain will try to win the match by improving his own performance.

    Though the victory margin of 20 runs shows India won quite convincingly, the Indian skipper admitted that things got too close for comfort in the closing stages of the match, and that he would seek to remind his side to never take their foot off the accelerator until victory has been achieved.

    "Most of the guys thought that we had won the game when [West Indies] were seven wickets down, but it was a mistake and, hopefully, we won''t repeat it," he said after the win.

    That will be the one aspect of their game the visitors will try to improve on, while the other criticial area will be the need to maintain discipline in the bowling. The Indian bowlers were guilty of bowling 13 wides and 2 no-balls in the first ODI, and cannot afford to slip up on that front again.

    The hosts too have their own set of worries; their bowlers lacked discipline in line and length, and failed to find a way to combat the Indian batsmen - particularly Yuvraj - when they jammed down on the accelerator. On the batting front, though most of the batsmen got starts, none really stay on till the end and converted it to a big score - something Yuvraj Singh did particularly well for India. That is one other area that Gayle and Co. will try to improve on - try to convert the starts to big scores.

    With the surface likely to assist the batsmen once again, we could be in for a run-feast yet again.

    West Indies (Probable XI): Chris Gayle (c), Runako Morton, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Dwayne Bravo, Darren Bravo, Denesh Ramdin, Dave Bernard, Suleiman Benn, Jerome Taylor, Lionel Baker.

    India (Probable XI): MS Dhoni (c), Gautam Gambhir, Dinesh Karthik, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, Praveen Kumar, Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra, RP Singh.

    Default West Indies level series with India


    West Indies level series with India

    KINGSTON: Hosts West Indies leveled their four match one day international series with India here with an emphatic eight-wicket victory, despite a magnificent 95 runs by Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

    Dhoni struck six fours and two sixes from 130 balls, as he almost single-handedly led an Indian revival, but West Indies'' final target of 189 in 50 overs was never going to be treacherous.

    India bowled steadily, but West Indies reached the target with 95 balls to spare, following a workmanlike 85 from 102 balls from Runako Morton, and a typically robust 64 from 46 balls from Chris Gayle.

    India had won the high-scoring, opening match last Friday by 20 runs at the same venue.

    Windies and India to play 3rd ODI today

    ST LUCIA: The third One-day International between the West Indies and India will be played here today.

    The four-match series is level 1-1, after India won the high-scoring opening match by 20 runs last Friday at Sabina Park in Jamaica, and West Indies rebounded with a thumping eight-wicket victory two days later at the same venue.

    However, victory in the third ODI will bring to the winners an unbeaten lead in the series.

    India are expected to bring Abhishek Nayer in place of Ravindra Jadeja while the West Indies have decided to make no change in their team for the final two matches.

    The final match of the 4-ODI series will be played on July 5.

    Default India beat Windies by 6 wickets in 3rd ODI


    India beat Windies by 6 wickets in 3rd ODI

    GROS ISLET, St. Lucia: India dodged the showers to eke-out a workmanlike six-wicket victory over West Indies in the rain-hit third One-day International on Friday at the Beausejour Cricket Ground.

    India take an unbeatable 2-1 lead the four-match series with the final match to be contested on Sunday at the same venue.

    Chasing a revised target of 159 from 22 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis Method following a near hour-long stoppage for rain during their chase, India hit the jackpot with one ball to spare.

    India were put on the path to glory, when their openers Dinesh Karthik and Gautam Gambhir shared 95 in 12.1 overs for the first wicket.

    Karthik hit the top score of 47 from 43 balls, and Gambhir made 44 from 38 balls before they were dismissed within three overs of each other to leave India 108 for two in the 16th over.

    India also lost Yuvraj Singh for two and Rohit Sharma for 11, but India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni held his nerve, and helped his side navigate the closing overs to take them over the threshold.

    India required 11 from the final over, and Dhoni hit a six off the second ball from Jerome Taylor over mid-wicket, before Yusuf Pathan hit the winning run, when he stabbed a short, rising ball into square cover, and scampered a single.

    Earlier, Ramnaresh Sarwan stroked 62 to lead West Indies to 185 for seven.

    Sarwan struck five fours and a six from 58 balls, after India sent West Indies in to bat, and the home team tried to maintain the intensity, after the weather failed to cooperate, and reduced their innings to a maximum of 27 overs.

    West Indies captain Chris Gayle supported with 27, Runako Morton scored 22, and Darren Bravo made 21 to keep the momentum going.

    Ashish Nehra led India''s bowling with three for 21 from five overs, and Harbhajan Singh captured two for 25 from five overs.

    Play started two hours and five minutes late because of the weather, but then a couple more stoppages for rain forced the final reduction in the number of overs.

    India were put on their heels by Gayle with typically robust batting before rain forced the players of the field.

    ehra made the breakthrough for India, when Gayle was caught behind in the fourth over, but then another shower sent the players scampering.

    On resumption, India tried to keep a lid on the West Indies'' scoring, but Sarwan added 51 with Morton, and 47 with Chanderpaul to keep the home team going.

    When Gautam Gambhir''s throw from square leg to keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian captain, ran Sarwan out in the 21st over, West Indies were 135 for four.

    India were then put under further pressure, when the Bravo brothers - Darren and Dwayne - added 44 for the fifth wicket before West Indies lost three wickets for 16 runs in the last two overs.

    There were two changes for India with Ishant Sharma and Abhishek Nayar replacing Praveen Kumar and Ravindra Jadeja, but West Indies were - predictably - unchanged.

    India won the high-scoring opening ODI by 20 runs last Friday at Sabina Park in Jamaica, and two days later, West Indies rebounded to secure an eight-wicket victory in a low-scoring second ODI at the same venue.

    Friday''s victory means that India are now in pole position to formalise a rare ODI series victory in the Caribbean before embarking on a much-anticipated two-month break from the game.
