On July 27, the Kensington Oval in Barbados will host the opening ODI of the India Tour of the West Indies between India (IND) and West Indies (WI). India has been playing well lately, winning three out of five of the matches they’ve played in this format. With only one victory in their previous five games, West Indies, on the other side, may be in some difficulty.
Australia, which had won the toss and chosen to bat in their previous game, faced up against India. Australia got out to a fantastic start and quickly gained the lead. No player had a particularly great score on their own, but the entire squad chipped in and scored a respectable 269 runs overall. India was proactive in their response to the chase and was making great progress, but they also kept losing wickets frequently. They were eventually bunched out for 248 because they ran out of good batters who could finish the game. Australia defeated the other team by 21 runs.
In their most recent match, Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to field when playing West Indies. West Indies made a respectable start but quickly lost a number of wickets. They were able to get back on track because to a few crucial partnerships from the middle order, with Keacy Carty scoring the highest for them with an 87. West Indies were able to set Sri Lanka a respectable target of 244 runs. With an opening stand of 190 runs, Sri Lanka was outstanding in the chase from the get-go, making it a formality at that point. With more than five overs remaining, Sri Lanka defeated its opponent by an impressive eight wickets.
