Marlon Samuels and Denesh Ramdin put WI on top


Before the start of match everybody was concerned about the possible rain in Kochi. In fact it was a rain of runs in the Nehru International stadium at Kochi in the first half of the first ODI match Vs India and WI. India choose to field after captain MS Dhoni won a good toss in Kochi. WI scored a huge 321/6 in 50 overs. West Indies openers D. Smith and Dwayne Bravo give a decent start to the WI innings. Bravo got a good start but could not continue his rhythm.  In fourth wicket partnership Marlon Samuels(126*) and Denesh Ramdin(61) scored a quick 165 runs in 139 balls. Samuels’s sixth ODI century helped West Indies to cross the 300 mark.

In the 45th over WI were 285/3, but in the death five overs they could score only 36 runs. Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowler. He took 4/66 including the two consecutive wickets of Pollard and Rusell.
