Ongoing rainy weather hampered the first ODI between the West Indies and India in Guyana midway through the hosts’ innings.
The first delay was before the throw and reduced the game to 43 overs per side. Virat Kohli won the litter and decided in favor of the field. His opening fixtures Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar made a good start and narrowed the West Indies in 5.4 Overs to 9/0 before it rained again.
The game continued and the competition was reduced to 34 overs per side. Chris Gayle, who overtook Brian Lara as the West Indian’s most populated ODI, remained cautious, but Evin Lewis failed and hit 30 of 16 balls after reopening.
Gayle was thrown by Kuldeep Yadav for 4 out of 31, and Shai Hope and Lewis looked to rebuild, reaching 54/1 out of 13 overs. It rained again at that time, and although the ground crew made great efforts, no play was possible.
