India vs West Indies, 1st ODI (D/N), Ahmedabad, Feb 6 2022, West Indies tour of India

Match Result: India won by 6 wickets (with 132 balls remaining)

Player of the Match: Yuzvendra Chahal (4/49)

Match Report: Massive win for India. They lead the Paytm ODI series by 1-0 now. They did lose 4 wickets but they did not look troubled for most part of the chase. Big part of this win goes to the bowlers though. They did the tough job, and set up an easy for the batters. Yuzi Chahal had a marvellous comeback, picking his 100th wicket in the 1000th ODI of India. His wicket of Kieron Pollard was such a treat to watch.

On the batting front, Rohit Sharma went all guns blazing, his quickfire knock made the rest of the chase a formality. Talking point of the match was Kohli and the way he batted. 4 balls, he played only 4 balls. But his approach of batting was way different. He attacked on every ball, losing his wicket on a trap that was set up by the Windies. Next two ODIs are scheduled in Ahmedabad as well. Windies need to come up with a better preparation if they intent to level the series, if winning it seems far.

Prasidh Krishna: Now that I’ve been practising a lot – played a few VH games as well – so there’s a lot of overs in me. Anything going to the keeper and to the slips – I love that. Quite nice to see the ball getting the carry. Glad that there are people behind who aren’t going to miss the opportunity. Ball flying to the keeper – something every fast bowler wants. The kind of guys we have in the team are very good, we’ve been learning off each other. Still being grounded that way. Been a team effort.

Rohit, India captain: Definitely not looking at those numbers (captaincy record). Have ticked a lot of boxes in this series. Whatever we wanted to get out of this series, we pretty much got. Noise will be around as long as we’re playing. People look up to us, everybody watches us. As players, as individuals, we know what we need to focus on. Outside noise doesn’t bother the dressing room. Said it in the last game as well – never seen something like that in India (Prasidh’s spell). Good to have someone who can hit the deck and get that bounce. Although I didn’t feel like this was Indian conditions, was good to see the fast bowlers actually.

Was also impressed with Siraj. And then Shardul and Deepak did the job for us. Both Kuldeep and Chahal are crucial players for us. Especially Kuldeep. Chahal was very much in the plans and Kuldeep went off the radar. It was important to get him back slowly. Important to give them that confidence. We start expecting things early than expected, important to give them some cushion. Pretty sure we’ll see them together soon. That was the biggest takeaway for us – the middle order batting. Today was again a great game for the middle order. We were 40/3. For me that’s the biggest takeaway.
