West Indies managed to carry their good form from the T20I series as they stunned the Indian team to take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series. Shimron Hetmyer was the key in taking the West Indies through in the 288-run chase in Chennai. India will be taking positives from the defeat as Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant scored crucial runs after top-order’s failure. The 2nd match of this ODI series will be played in Vizag. This game will be a do-or-die one for India who needs to win it to stay alive in the series.
