IND vs WI Live: No stopping Kuldeep!
Second wicket for Kuldeep Yadav and this time, his victim is Yannic Cariah. The batter had no idea about the spin on the delivery and once again, he ended up playing across and the ball crashed into his pads. The on-field umpire was no convinced but replays show that the ball was hitting middle and leg stumps.
WI 113/8 after 21.3 overs.
IND vs WI Live: 20 overs done!
West Indies lost 3 wickets in the first 10 overs but the next 10 have been worse. Ravindra Jadeja took three in quick succession and with Kuldeep Yadav also finding a lot of help from the pitch, this can get way worse for the hosts.
WI 107/7 after 20.1 overs.
IND vs WI Live: Kuldeep joins the party!
Kuldeep Yadav is introduced into the attack and almost instantly he has succeeded! Late movement and Dominic Drakes was plumb LBW. West Indies lose their seventh wicket!

IND vs WI Live: Record in sight!
At the start of the game, Ravindra Jadeja was four wickets away from becoming the leading wicket-taker in India vs West Indies ODIs. Three wickets down and the record is well within his reach!
WI 99/6 after 18.2 overs.
IND vs WI Live: Magical Jadeja!
Two sharp slip catches and two quick wickets for Ravindra Jadeja. The all-rounder foxed both Rovman Powell and Romario Shepherd with his bowling and it took good efforts from Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli respectively to hand India a massive advantage in this game!

WI 92/4 after 16 overs.
IND vs WI: Express pace!
Umran Malik is an interesting asset for India. While the economy rate can be quite high sometimes, there is no denying that the raw pace bothers batters on most occasions. In Barbados, he has gone for some boundaries once again but it will be foolish to count him out of the game.

IND vs WI Live: 10 overs done!
West Indies are 52 for the loss of three wickets after 10 overs. India are completely in the driver’s seat with the crucial wickets and a lot will depend on how Shia Hope and Shimron Hetmyer plays in this game. The Indian spinners have still not bowled a single delivery till now.

Shardul Thakur has done it! The fast bowler has castled Brandon King and West Indies are in deep trouble! Indian pacers seemed to have found their groove once again.
WI 45/3 after 8.5 overs.
