16.17 IST: OUT! India draw first blood. Kumar keeps this on a length around off. Hemraj looks to blast the drive o the up without much footwork. Ends up driving it uppishly to the man at covers where Rayudu takes a sharp catch. WI 20/1 in 4.2 overs

The Windies opening pair of Kieron Powell and Hemraj Chandrapaul also stride out to the center with the latter taking strike. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to start proceedings for the home side.
*As things stand, you'd back India to win this one. But this game is all about the start. If the Windies' top order can provide that, then they have the likes of Hetmyer, Powell and Holder in the middle who can capitalize on that. Let's see how the Indian bowlers fare on this surface.

17.17 IST: Roach removes Dhoni for 23. A bit of an anti-climatic end to his stay in the middle. Still remains one short of that 10k mark in ODIs.

17.18 IST: Dropped! But what an effort from Fabien Allen. Amazing try. Full and in the slot, Dhoni looks to go big downtown but only skies it to the cover region.

17.09 IST: RUN-OUT! Ambati Rayudu departs for 100. Good work from Allen. Nicely done. Brings an end to a fine knock from the Indian no.4. Allen does well here. The batsman can only force it to covers and he takes off. Allen moves to the ball, turns and scores a direct hit at his end. Rayudu starts walking but the umpire takes it upstairs, just to be sure. Replays show Rayudu is gone, but not before playing a superb innings. IND 344/4 in 47.1 overs
17.07 IST: FOUR! A boundary to end the over. 350 in sight for India? 14 from this one. A low full toss on the pads, Dhoni just flicks this past short fine leg, through backward square leg, and finds the boundary. IND 344/3 in 47 overs
17.06 IST: FOUR! Dhoni carves that away to on a yorker. Overpitched outside off, Dhoni squeezes it out square and lofts it over point. Nobody out there in the deep, so a boundary results. IND 340/3 in 46.5 overs

The run is completed though. India 336/3 in 47.3 overs
17.01 IST: No ball! And that means a Free Hit will be coming up. Paul looks to bowl the slower one but it slips out of his hands. Ends up bowling a beamer and the umpire signals the no ball.
16.53 IST: SIX! That made a sweet sound off the bat. Monstrous hit from Ambati Rayudu as he moves into the 90s. Low full toss outside off, he moves across, gets under it properly and slogs it deep into the mid-wicket stands. Wow. IND 324/3 in 44.5 overs
16.52 IST: Back of a length coming in on off, Dhoni looks to play at it with the pull but it goes off the shoulder. A leg bye is taken.

16.22 IST: FOUR! BANG! That's hammered and he has a variety of shots up his sleeve. Quality batting this. Rayudu gives himself a bit of room to this flighted ball on off, plays a lofted extra cover drive and places it perfectly for another boundary. He's looking really good now.
16.21 IST: FOUR! Rayudu works the sweep shot perfectly. He times it and smashes that to square leg. IND 246/2 in 38.1 overs
16.19 IST: FOUR! A splendid shot played by Rohit! A length ball on off this, Sharma makes room towards the leg side, and then carves a punch through the covers to the boundary for four! Nurse's diving effort inside the circle just not good enough IND 241/2 in 37.5 overs
16.17 IST: SIX! That has been spanked! Takes the new bowler on and does that well. A full ball on the stumps is deposited back over the bowler and over the fence for a supper maximum.

His hometown crowd stands up and applauds the effort. Short and wide, Rohit cuts this to point. The fielder there premeditates and moves to his left too quickly, and the ball goes from where he was originally standing. It races away to the fence for a boundary. Now, the opener will look to accelerate and score a really big one. IND 197/2 in 32.2 overs
15.55 IST: SIX! A replenishing drink?! Definitely cause Rayudu has gone big. Rayudu's played the spinners very well since he's come on, continues to do the same now.

* Drinks are on the field. India might have lost their skipper, but they have Rohit Sharma still in the middle and he's looking in fine touch.

15.37 IST: FOUR! Rohit knows what to do with a short ball. The same delivery and again Rohit hits that to deep square leg. Put away. Rovman is too straight with his line. Rohit can just stay on the back foot and pull it behind square leg to find the fence. IND 155/2 in 26.5 overs
* 50 partnership comes up for Rohit and Rayudu.

Roach lands it just outside off on a good length, a hint of away movement as Kohli comes half-forward to block. It takes the edge and Shai Hope behind takes a simple catch. This will also provide a psychological boost to the visitors. IND 101/2 in 16.4 overs
14.53 IST: 100 up for India!
14.52 IST: On the fuller side of things, outside off, Kohli drives it through the covers. Sweeper cover moves to his right, slides to stop it.

14.50 IST: Good length ball in the channel outside off, tempts Sharma but he doesn't go for it. Lets it be.
* DRINKS! IND 93/1 in 15 overs. Rohit 35*, Kohli 12*
A good brisk start by India after electing to bat first. They would have been happier to reach here without the loss of their left-handed opener. Captain Kohli though has joined Rohit out there in the middle and both these senior campaigners will look to build a strong partnership and a steady base for some quick acceleration at a later stage. Windies, on the flip side, will be eager to see the back of the century maker - Virat Kohli. Also, they will be more than happy to get the wicket of the dangerous Rohit Sharma as early as possible. A well set Rohit can be as dangerous, if not more.
14.43 IST: Beaten in pace. Shorter in length around off. Kohli tries to turn it away into the leg side but gets beaten as the ball is a bit slow in reaching him. It goes between his bat and body to the keeper behind.IND 93/1 in 15 overs

IND 84/1 in 13.5 overs
14.35 IST: FOUR! Ramp shot played to perfection. A bouncer tries by Paul, well directed but Rohit it too good a player to get surprised by this one, at this pace. Rohit leans back and ramps this over the keeper's head for a lovely boundary. IND 80/1 in 13.1 overs
14.32 IST: Wide! The ball is way wide on the leg side but the batsman still goes after it. The umpire has signalled a wide.
* Virat Kohli walks in to the middle.
14.26 IST: OUT! Paul removes Dhawan for 38. West Indies draw first blood, totally against the run of play! Short ball again asking to be whacled.

14.11 IST: Wide! Short and wide of off, Rohit content in letting these ones go behind. Too wide though, Wide given.
14.08 IST: Dishes this one fuller and wide of off. Rohit is skeptical to go after it and decides to watchfully let it be.
14.05 IST: FOUR! 50 up for India! Another one and this time the southpaw steps up. This over seemed like it would have been a maiden, but Dhawan had other plans in mind. Shikhar checks his drive through covers. The ball flies over the fielders in the ring and Shikhar gets a second drive on consecutive balls. IND 51/0 in 8 overs
14.05 IST: FOUR! What a shot! On the backfoot and what timing from Dhawan. A bit quicker, shorter and fractionally wide of off. Shikhar rocks back to cut it through point for a boundary. IND 47/0 in 7.5 overs

IND 40/0 in 6.1 overs
13.53 IST: SIX! This one's from Dhawan. Deep to square leg and it's gone all the way. Full and on the pads, swinging into him, flicked nonchalantly over square leg! IND 31/0 in 5.1 overs

13.46 IST: Good finish by Kemar as he lands this on a good length just around off, Shikhar defends by coming forward.
13.41 IST: FOUR! Dhawan is off the mark as well with a boundary. That's silky and smooth from the elegant southpaw. These kind of shots get your confidence sky rocketing high.

13.17 IST: PITCH REPORT - Sunil Gavaskar reckons that the surface looks good for batting, devoid of grass. feels that the spinners will get a little bit of grip but it will be beautiful for batting. Observes that the outfield is lush green and the ball will travel. Adds that India might want to chase here, as dew is a possibility.
WEATHER REPORT - Well, it normally does not rain in Mumbai beyond September but after what has happened in the last 2 years, wherein we have witnessed rainfall even in October and November, might keep fingers crossed anyway. The forecast says bright and sunny and gut feeling is it will stay that way. However, not many expected rain last night in Oman and Dubai. So... hope that mother nature gives preference to cricket.
