  • So, that's it as far the coverage of this game is concerned. The next ODI between the two teams will be on Sunday, 25th June, at the same venue. The weather forecast isn't great for the weekend either. Let's hope the rain gods relent. The action will start at 0900 local, 1300 GMT. Do join us for that game. Until next time, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!
  • India had a decent outing with the bat in the 39.2 overs that happened today. Shikhar Dhawan continued his form from the Champions trophy to stroke an elegant 87 while comeback man Ajinkya Rahane utilized the opportunity to conjure a fifty of his own. The pair put on 132 for the first wicket before the Windies struck thrice for just 53 runs to slow things down. Skipper Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni were planning to open up but instead, the heavens opened up to play spoilsport. Devendra Bishoo and Jason Holder were tidy for the hosts.

  • UPDATE 1335 LOCAL - Ominous signs from the Queens Park Oval, it's raining heavily now and there is lightning as well. Things looking very bleak at the moment.
  • UPDATE 1255 LOCAL - We have started to lose overs now. An over for every eight minutes is the count.
  • Once again the RAIN HAS GOT HEAVIER and the players are running back to their respective dressing rooms. And by the looks of it, we are in for a big delay. We will keep updating you. Stay tuned!

  • 6.1Length ball wider outside off, Dhawan leans forward and slaps it towards backward point where Carter makes a decent stop.

  • Hello and welcome to India's limited-overs tour of West Indies. We kick off with the five-match ODI series followed by the one-off T20I. Chance for the hosts to rotate their players and test some of the talented fringe players. The Windies boys will know that they will need to pull up their socks as they were ordinary in the last series against Afghanistan. On paper, India are overwhelming favorites but as the recent Champions Trophy showed, cricket is a funny game. Have to keep an eye on the weather too. Toss and other updates are coming up shortly.
