West Indies 183 All Out, India Begins Race to Score 184 Runs

worldcup2015West Indies were all out for 183 runs in the first innings against India after West Indies captain Jason Holder won the toss and elected to bat against India in a World Cup Pool B contest at the WACA today, Friday.

India bowled the West Indies out for a paltry 182 in 44.2 overs but the West Indies innings never got going as they lost wickets at regular intervals. Skipper Jason Holder (57) waged a lone battle for the two-time World Cup winners.

For India, Mohammed Shami (3-35), Ravindra Jadeja (2-27) and Umesh Yadav (2-42) put up an impressive show. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and medium pacer Mohit Sharma took a wicket each.

India have brought back pacer Mohammed Shami, who was out of the last game against the United Arab Emirates with an injury, replacing Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The Caribbean side, meanwhile, have replaced spinner Sulieman Benn with an extra pacer Kemar Roach, keeping in mind the pacy and bouncy nature of the wicket.
