In the 1st ODI, India held their nerves to beat West Indies by 3 runs in the last ball thriller against West Indies. Batting first in the match, team India started brilliantly as the two openers Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill scored 119 runs for the opening wicket. Gill was looking good to score a big knock but unfortunately, he got run out on 64 runs (6 fours and 2 sixes). Skipper Shikhar Dhawan missed a well-deserved hundred and he was dismissed on 97 runs off 98 balls including 10 fours and 3 sixes. Shreyas Iyer also scored a half-century (54 runs off 57 balls) for his side.

Possible Star Batter Of The Match

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan showed his experience and played an excellent knock in the second 1st ODI against West Indies. The left-hander scored 97 runs off 99 balls including 10 fours and 3 sixes. This was the 6th time that when Shikhar Dhawan got out in the nervous 90s in his ODI career. The Indian skipper is expected to replicate his brilliant innings and help his side to take a lead of 2-0 in the series.

Probable Star Bowler Of The Match

Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal delivered another magnificent performance with the bowl for India in the 1st ODI. The right-arm leggie picked up wickets at crucial moments to bring India back into the contest. He dismissed the dangerous Rovman Powell and the well-settled Brandon King to destroy the momentum of the West Indies in the chase. He will once again be the trump card for skipper Shikhar Dhawan in the second ODI on Sunday.

India Vs West Indies Match Prediction Who Will Win

West Indies showed excellent fight in the opening game and they almost chased down 309 runs. Nobody expected this from the West Indian batting lineup as they failed to cross even 200 runs mark in the recent ODI series against Bangladesh. The bowling also made a good comeback in the 2nd phase of the Indian innings.

On the other hand, India looked good in the first phase of their batting but they collapsed in the final overs and failed to score the expected 350-plus total. The Indian bowlers did well in the final overs to defend the total. Overall, both teams played well in the 1st match but India is still a strong side as compared to West Indies and we predict that India will beat West Indies in the 2nd ODI match of this series.
