IND vs WI ODI

New Delhi: India defeated West Indies in the first One Day International (ODI) by 5 wickets at Kensington Oval in Barbados curtsey to Kuldeep Yadav magical spell of 4/6 in just 3 overs. Indian opener Ishan Kishan played memorable knock of 52 runs. Ravindra Jadeja’s all-round performance was also the highlights of the match.

Virat Kohli’s one hand catch 

Virat Kohli’s stunning one-hander at the second slip to dismiss Romario Shepherd was the talk of the town as the 34-year-old batter once again showed his muscularity with the eagle eye catch.

Virat Kohli responded quickly in the 18th over of the West Indies innings as Jadeja got Romario Shepherd’s wicket. Taking the edge of Shepherd’s bat, the ball went to the right of Virat Kohli standing at second slip, which Virat Kohli dived and caught with one hand. Apart from the corridors of cricket, this catch is also being praised on social media.

Jadeja in awe of Kohli

Jadeja praised Virat’s catch, “I felt good… I always take catches off others’ bowling and when someone takes a good catch in my bowling, it felt good. It was a very good catch, he had to take it low and it was a sharp catch,” Jadeja, who is known for his sensational fielding and catching efforts, told the BCCI after India won 1st ODI.

“He did not get a lot of time. The batter went for a drive and he had less than a second to react. I would say it was a very very good catch. Shubman Gill also took a nice catch. It was also a low catch. On wickets like these, only when the bowlers get the support of the fielders, their confidence will be boosted. These half-chances should be converted into wickets, then only the bowlers will feel confident,” he added.

Kuldeep, Jadeja destroy West Indies batting line-up

Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav took a total of 7 wickets in the match. With this, the pair of left-handers has become the first duo of Indian team to have taken 7 or more wickets in an ODI match.

Kuldeep Yadav said, ‘Fast bowlers gave a good start. It was Mukesh’s debut, he bowled well. When your bowling came, you also got him out quickly. So I got only a few wickets left.

In addition, Ravindra Jadeja said, ‘Similarly the wicket was getting good spin. Being a bowling unit, when a spin bowler starts bowling, the bowler gets an idea of how much the ball is spinning and how much the bounce is. Our only effort was to give less runs because as we batted in the second innings, it seemed very difficult to play.
