Port of Spain: West Indies will have to chase a target of 194 runs in 26 overs as per Duckworth-Lewis method in the first One Day International cricket match after rain played a spoilsport in the Indian innings here on Friday.

India scored 199/3 in 39.2 overs before the sky opened up. After seeing the continuous rain, the umpires decided to put West Indies to bat with a target set through the D/L method.

Earlier, put in to bat, India got off to a solid start as openers Shikhar Dhawan (87) and Ajinkya Rahane (62) forged a 132-run partnership before the latter was sent back to the pavilion by pacer Alzarri Joseph in the 25th over. Rahane’s 78-ball knock included eight boundaries.

Unperturbed by the fall of Rahane’s wicket, Dhawan kept on scoring with a good pace and skipper Virat Kohli (32 batting) was just rotating the strike. But in the process, Dhawan was adjudged leg before wicket off spinner Devendra Bishoo in the 32nd over. While trying to play the ball towards the midwicket, Dhawan missed the ball which hit the pad.

New batsman Yuvraj Singh (4) and Kohli then tried to take forward the Indian innings with the same momentum but Yuvraj was dismissed by skipper Jason Holder in the 37th over after adding 17 runs with Kohli.

The fall of wicket brought in Mahendra Singh Dhoni (9 batting), who along with the skipper tried to stabilise the innings before the sky opened up.

For West Indies, Holder, Joseph and Bishoo chipped in with one wicket each.
