    Complete performance by the ‘Men in Maroon’!!

  • 10:02 PM IST
    IND vs WI Live Score: What a performance from the West Indies! Especially Shimron Hetmyer. His innings was the one which actually gave the momentum to the innings. He was exceptional, terrifying and just took the game away from the Indians. Shai Hope was though was not far behind, he took time to get to his century but was the ideal support for a rampaging Hetmyer. The visitors lost the early wicket of Sunil Ambris early on but then Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope stitched a 218-run stand to get them to safer shores. Once Hetmyer fell after a mammoth knock, Hope and Pooran finished it off with off with a 62-run stand. One of the centurions, Shai Hope is down for an interview.

    Shai Hope says that he is not smiling too much but he is happy with the victory. Adds that Hetmyer batted well and he was just anchoring the innings. Mentions the pitch was a bit of a slow turner but he adjusted his innings accordingly. Hope also says the partnership between him and Hetmyer was crucial.

IND vs WI 1st ODI Match Highlights from MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai:

Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope sent the India bowlers on a leather hunt to help West Indies seal an emphatic win and a 1-0 series lead in the 3-match rubber on Sunday. Chasing 288, West Indies lost opener Sunil Ambirs early. However, a 218-run stand — West Indies’ 2nd highest partnership vs India in ODIs — between Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope made sure the visitors eased to what looked like a stiff target.

It was also the highest successful chase in ODI cricket by any team at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Hetmyer was the star of the day for West Indies as the left-handed batsman mixed aggression with a bit of caution as he dominated the Indian attack that looked ordinary on Sunday. Hetmyer got his 5th ODI hundred — his 2nd against India as West Indies completed the chase in just 47.5 overs.
