Late surge from MS Dhoni led India to a defend-able total against West Indies on Thursday in Manchester. Dhoni struck 16 runs in the last over of the innings and scored an unbeaten 61-ball 56.

Earlier, India won the toss and opted to bat first. Opener Rohit Sharma was undone by Kemar Roach after Shai Hope caught him behind the stumps. The decision was a controversial one as it seemed that the ball hadn’t hit the willow.

Later, KL Rahul and captain Virat Kohli steadied the ship for India but they lost wickets in quick succession to get reduced to 180/5.

Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni stitched a 70-run stand before Pandya went back for 46. India eventually ended the innings at 268/7 and West Indies now need 269 to win.
