India secured a convincing victory over West Indies in the ODI opener, thanks to Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja’s brilliant bowling. Ishan Kishan’s explosive batting led India to a comfortable win with 163 balls to spare.

Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja starred with the ball as India cruised to a five-wicket victory over West Indies in the opening ODI in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Kuldeep took four wickets for six runs in three overs, while Jadeja picked up three for 37 in six overs as West Indies were bowled out for 114 in 33.5 overs.

In reply, India reached the target with 163 balls to spare, with Ishan Kishan top-scoring with 52 off 44 balls.

The win gives India a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Here are the key takeaways from the match:

  • Kuldeep and Jadeja were once again the stars with the ball for India. Both bowlers bowled with great control and accuracy, and they were able to extract plenty of turn from the surface.
  • Kishan was the pick of the batsmen for India. He played some excellent shots, and he was able to score quickly against a West Indies attack that was under pressure.
  • West Indies’ batting was a major disappointment. They were bowled out for a very low score, and they never really looked like getting on top of the Indian bowlers.
