The first One-Day International (ODI) match between India and West Indies: IND 199/3 (39.2 Ovs)
The first One-Day International (ODI) match between India and West Indies on Friday was stopped due to rain.
Rain stopped play for the second time with India at 199 for three off 39.2 overs batting first against the West Indies in the first fixture of the five-match one-day international series at the Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad on Friday.
India had drawn away to a flying start with openers Shikhar Dhawan making 87 and Ajinkya Rahane hitting 62.
Skipper Virat Kohli (32 not out) and MS Dhoni (nine not out) were the hitters at the fold when the natural process was stopped.
Earlier, West Indies captain Jason Holder won the toss and put India in to bat.
On a dry pitch expected to provide more assistance than usual to the slower bowlers, the home side has included leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo in their final 11 after he missed out along the three-match series against Afghanistan two weeks sooner.
With opener Rohit Sharma and fast-medium bowler Jasprit Bumrah not included in the squad from the squad that missed the Champions Trophy final to Pakistan in London five days earlier.
Ajinkya Rahane comes into the position at the acme of the order while left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav makes his ODI debut.
