Decisions overturned in WC 2019 each team

8 WI 3 SA/ Ind 2 Eng/ Afg 1 Aus/ SL/ Pak/ NZ 0 Ban

Four down

Jadhav walks in and gets out. Another successful review from West Indies. Length ball and he poked at that one. Roach didn't appeal but Holder went for the review. A very faint edge and Jadhav's stay lasts just 10 balls.

India 140 for 4

50 for Kohli

A half-century for the India captain and this one comes off 55 balls. His fourth consecutive fifty in this World Cup. A boundary and a single to get there in the 28th over.

India 133 for 3

Vijay falls

Poor, poor knock from Vijay. He struck three boundaries but played 14 dot balls in the 19 he played. That stalled the innings and took away all the momentum Rahul and Kohli had built. Length ball outside off, he poked and edged it. Easy catch for the 'keeper.

India 126 for 4

Slow going

25 overs done and looks like the run-scoring has stalled. Shankar is struggling to keep the strike moving. He'son 13 off 17. Three boundaries so far from him and plenty of dot balls which India don't need. Kohli too scoring at just over 80. India need impetus and Vijay isn't able to put the West Indies bowlers under pressure.

India 118 for 2

Two down

Jaffa from Holder. Length ball and it beats the defence and hits the top of off. Rahul falls short of his half-century by two runs. West Indies strike just when they needed it the most.

India 98 for 2

20 overs done

Kohli and Rahul have settled down nicely here and looking good here. Not much turn for the West Indies spinners and not much for the pacers as well.

India 97 for 1

Powerplay done

So a crucial wicket for West Indies in the first ten overs but a few boundaries as well. The pacers need to build pressure but India have been able to get away with it after a few dot balls. A lot will depend Kohli and Rahul and India need a solid platform.

India 47 for 1

Rohit falls

Superb delivery from Roach. Full and swung in. Nipped in and cut the batsman in half. West Indies went for the review and the umpire felt the ball clipped the inside edge. It could have have clipped the pad. It was close but the umpire gave the benefit of the doubt to the bowling side.

Both Rohit and Rahul are disappointed with the result. They throw their head back in disappointment.

India 29 for 1

Slow start

Good bowling from the West Indies pacers. They haven't overdone the short balls and have tried to swing the balls as well. Cottrell gave eight in his third over and even then just 17 in the first five overs but India haven't lost a wicket as well.

Alright then, national anthems are done. Rohit and Rahul out to open, Cottrell to bowl the first over. Excited?

Teams:

West Indies (Playing XI): Chris Gayle, Sunil Ambris, Shai Hope(w), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Carlos Brathwaite, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas

India (Playing XI): Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli(c), Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

TOSS - India opt to bat. West Indies make two changes - Sunil Ambris and Fabian Allen included in place of Evin Lewis and Ashley Nurse

Have India got everything covered? Not really! If the sides want to beat Kohli and Co., there are few cracks in the batting order.

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the match between West Indies and India in Manchester. India are unbeaten, West Indies need a win to stay alive. This is a crucial game for both teams. India will hope to end on top of the points table and the easiest way to do that is to win all their four games.

After Pakistan's win last night, all the chatter is already about England-India game. Pakistan will hope India wins so that their campaign stays alive. But let's not forget, West Indies are a quality side and they almost beat New Zealand. Their pacers have been fiery while the batsmen have finally found form.
