India lose first ODI to West Indies by 8 wickets at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
West Indies have completed an easy run chase against India. They have won the first ODI by 8 wickets with Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer slamming a hundred. Windies take 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
Hundred for Hope
Shai Hope hits a six and four off Deepak Chahar and with that he has gone past the 100-run mark. A stunning century from the Windies opener as they need 11 runs off three overs now.
Easy run chase
West Indies need just 44 runs off 42 balls with 8 wickets in hand. It should be an easy run chase for the visitors from here on.
In trying to hit a Shami delivery over mid wicket, Hetmyer is caught in the deep by Shreyas Iyer. The southpaw heads back into the hut for 139 but he has put WI in a commanding position in the chase. Nicholas Pooran joins Shai Hope in the middle now.
Double century partnership
Double century stand comes up between Hetmyer and Hope as Windies are moving along nicely towards the Indian total. The duo are playing sensibly by taking singles and doubles coupled with occasional boundary or a big hit. Windies are on cusp of a huge victory here.
Catastrophe for India as Shreyas Iyer drops a sitter at long-on. Hetymyer hit the ball straight down the throat of the fielder at long-on but the ball went in between his hands. Hetmyer survives and bowler Deepak Chahar cannot believe his luck.
Shimron Hetmyer has slammed his fifth ODI century and his second one against India. He has played impressively in Chennai and has slammed the Indian bowlers with precision tonight.
50 for Hope
Shai Hope has slammed a fifty off 94 balls. He has hit 3 boundaries in his innings so far.
India seem to have no answers to the impressive batting display from the West Indies batters. While Shai Hope has been careful in his approach, Hetmyer has played a smashing innings.
Shimron Hetmyer is inching towards a hundred. He has thrashed the Indian bowlers all over the park today and looks set for an impressive hundred.
50 for Hetmyer
Hetmyer has looked assured in his innings and has hit a 50 in the first ODI. West Indies are strolling comfortably towards India's target.
After the early breakthrough, Hetmyer and Hope have stabilised the West Indies' innings with some mature batting. Indian captain Virat Kohli looks visibly frustrated.
Chahar bowled a length ball which was angling into the stumps and Sunil Ambris failed to pick it. It struck his pads and India appealed. The umpire adjudged it OUT as India picked up its first wicket of the match.
WI inning begins
Deepak Chahar has bowled a maiden over to start India's defence of the target.
