Team India’s victory in the opening ODI, which gave them a 1-0 series lead after three games, was a nail-biting moment. Shikhar Dhawan’s team had to work hard after falling short of a century, and it took a final-ball flourish for Team India to triumph by three runs and secured the victory. India is now confident after winning a close game and will aim for a series victory on Sunday.
Mohammed Siraj and Prasidh Krishna held off an attack from Akeal Hosein, and Romario Shepherd for 38 runs off the final three overs to secure a three-run victory. This came after Shikhar Dhawan (97), his opening partner Shubman Gill (64), and third batter Shreyas Iyer (54), all of whom scored the 50s, helped India reach 308 points. They were on track to reach about 350 after the opening stand of 119 runs, but West Indies fought back by altering their lengths and pace to contain the visitors.
Shikhar Dhawan, the skipper, led the way with a 99-ball 97 as India, who had been asked to bat, produced a massive 308 for 7 in their innings. Shreyas Iyer contributed 54, while Shubman Gill contributed 64. West Indies only managed 305 for 6 in 50 overs while chasing a record target. Shamarh Brooks and Brandon King each provided 46 and 54 points, while Kyle Mayers led the home team with 75 points.
At Queens Park Oval, Mohammed Siraj was able to stop a raging Romario Shepherd when the West Indies needed 15 off the final over to set a record (38 not out off 25).
West Indies 305 for 6 (Mayers 75, King 54, Thakur 2-54, Siraj 2-56) were defeated by India 308 for 7 (Dhawan 97, Gill 64, Iyer 54, Motie 2-54, Joseph 2-61) by three runs.

Ravindra Jadeja’s knee problem caused Team India a serious setback before their opening match against the West Indies. He was later disqualified from the ODI series. Arshdeep Singh won’t be making his ODI debut because the visitors plan to use the same playing XI for the second ODI while he continues to warm the bench.
Jason Holder, one of the top all-rounders in the modern age, has contracted Covid-19 and is unlikely to continue playing in the current three-match ODI series against India. He had previously rested for the Tests, ODIs, and T20Is against Bangladesh.
During the first ODI toss, West Indies’ new captain Nicholas Pooran stated that the team was unchanged from the previous match against Bangladesh and that Jason Holder had signed a contract with Covid-19.
