West Indies’ batsmen Andre Russel plays a shot during his cameo innings of 41

Sri Lanka will chase 163 runs in 26 overs in the first One Day International (ODI), after intermittent rains held up play for over four hours before, and during West Indies’ innings.

Andre Russell shellacked 41 from 24 balls and Jason Holder crashed 36 from 13, to lift West Indies to 159 for 8, after the match was shortened drastically, following the large stoppage in play.

Russell slammed three sixes – all in the arc between midwicket and cover – and hit three fours, after coming to the crease with less than 11 overs remaining in the innings. Holder’s surge was briefer, but more manic. He came to the crease with 20 balls remaining, hit his first ball for six down the ground, and continued to strike cleanly, memorably launching Ajantha Mendis flat over long-off in the penultimate over. Darren Bravo, who had resisted the Sri Lanka seamers’ advances early in the innings, finished with 38 from 58 balls.

    West indies just got 3 wickets to tilt the match as Sri Lanka now need 30 runs with 3 wickets in hand of 30 balls.
