the 1st One Day International (ODI) between India and West Indies! It seems like a remarkable performance from the Indian left-arm spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja, in that match.

Their excellent bowling display, with Kuldeep taking four wickets for just six runs and Jadeja contributing with three wickets, was instrumental in bundling out the West Indies for a meager total of 114 runs in 23 overs. The only resistance shown by the West Indies came from their skipper, Shai Hope, who scored 43 runs off 45 balls.

The partnership between Kuldeep and Jadeja, who picked up crucial wickets of important batsmen like Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, and Romario Shepherd, played a vital role in India’s dominant performance. Moreover, their combined efforts allowed them to achieve a historic feat, becoming the first-ever pair of Indian left-arm spinners to take seven or more wickets in an ODI.

Furthermore, India’s brilliant bowling also forced the West Indies to register their second-lowest total of 114 against India in the 50-over format. India had previously restricted the West Indies to a score of 104 in a match held in Thiruvananthapuram in 2018.

This victory showcases India’s prowess in the ODI format and sets a strong start for them in the three-match series against West Indies. The fans of Indian cricket would undoubtedly be thrilled with such a commanding performance from the spin-bowling duo and the team as a whole.

“The way the pacers bowled was really good, Mukesh and Shardul in particular. And then Jadeja and I could handle things, the ball was spinning a bit. We had to control our lengths and the wickets were easy to get. I have been working on my rhythm and it has been amazing. The ball is coming out nicely and I’m very pleased with it. I have also been varying the pace and in the white-ball format, my focus is on hitting the right lengths,” Kuldeep stated during the innings break.
