But the shrewd, playful and agile Chahal came once again and he dismissed Set King to restrict another partnership for 56 runs. This time Romario Shepherd (39 not out) kept the Indian team’s beats up till the last ball but could not take the team to victory.

Sanju Samson averted India’s defeat

In today’s ODI match, Sanju Samson, who was seen in the gloves behind the wicket, showed a good game. Of course, he could only score 12 runs with the bat. But he did a good job with the gloves. Especially in the last over, at one time West Indies needed 8 runs from 2 balls. But Siraj bowled such a bad ball on which 5 runs from wide seemed to be going. But Samson made such a brilliant dive behind the wicket that there was only one run of wide. Had we got 5 runs there, then perhaps India would have lost this match too.
