1. India vs West Indies - Dhoni

India vs West Indies Toss:

There has never been such an exciting match in the recent times as the India vs West Indies 1st ODI that happened in Florida on the Saturday i.e., 27th August 2016. The ground behaved as if it never saw any singles taken on it and as if it is a sin to score runs off the field except in the air. The expected average score was relatively high at the start, measuring to be 170. India has won the toss and decided to bowl only to see the runs shower.

With both Chris Gayle and Jason Holder missing the match, the Indians thought that it would be a cakewalk for them to win the game only to realize that it’s not as the match progressed.

India vs West Indies Live Score:

The World Champions has enhanced the game by hitting boundaries right from the start. Johnson Charles who’s playing his first T20 game on International level has scored a fifty leaving everyone to amuse including Virender Sehwag who tweeted about the runs flooding.

However, it’s Evin Lewis who took the show by his charm with a spectacular 100 making the West Indians super proud including his former captain Darren Sammy.

India vs West Indies Match Highlights:

Marlon Samuels on surviving the hat-trick ball by Bumrah finally has set the target to 246 by completing their innings on an elevated level leaving Indians to worry. It only took few minutes for India to start the innings steadily in their way until they started smashing the ball through the boundaries. However, with losing Kohli and Rahane early, the team fell into speculation about winning the game until KL Rahul increase the pace along with Rohit. It’s only after Dhoni; the game came into our hundreds, and while the fantastic partnership went on, KL Rahul made his maiden hundred in the T20 format.

As the match progressed towards the last over, it’s the missed catch of MS Dhoni by Samuels in the first ball that lost them the game. Hitting back to back sixes, both Dhoni and Rahul made it possible for the team, at least that’s what we thought until the last ball where Dhoni got out and West Indies has beaten India by one run.
