A Memorable Victory for India in the 1000th ODI

Indian Cricket team registered a comprehensive win in their historical 1000th ODI match yesterday in Ahmedabad. India won by 6 wickets against West Indies in Rohit Sharma's first match as full-time captain in the limited-overs. India will take on the Windies in the second ODI game on February 9 at Ahmedabad. Watch India vs west Indies live cricket action on YuppTV and experience unlimited excitement.

It's a remarkable win for team India in a memorable game as the hosts restricted batting-heavy Windies to a paltry 176 in the 44th over. Indian pacers Siraj and Washington Sundar gave a much-needed start and removed the Caribbean openers early in the innings. Mystery spinner Yazuvendra Chahal continued the momentum and took three wickets in quick succession. 

Windies opener Shai Hope (8) has been in brilliant form for over a year and scored 5 centuries in his last 12 innings but fell for Siraj (1 for 26) after scoring two boundaries. Chahal (4 for 49) bowled out Nicholas Pooran and the dangerous Pollard providing a brilliant breakthrough. Indian bowlers succeeded in troubling West Indies' top order before Jason Holder (57 in 71 balls) fought back and scored a crucial half-century to put a respectable total on the board.

Chasing a below-par 176, Indian openers Rohit Sharma (60) and Ishan Kishan (28) provided a brilliant start but lost Kishan, Kohli, and Pant in a short progression. Surya Kumar Yadav and Deepak Hooda played responsibly and ensured they won the game and make it a memorable milestone. India chased the target in the 28th over and won by 6 wickets to lead the series. 

India will enter the second game on Wednesday with immense confidence from this win. Let’s wait and see how West Indies come back in the series? Catch India vs West Indies live on YuppTV in the second ODI on February 9 from Ahmedabad.
