Commentary

Powered by serene hundred by Rahul Dravid and a vital 66 from Mohammad Kaif, who finally ended his run-drought, India registered their 17th successful run-chase in a row. West Indies had their chances but their poor fielding let them down and proved costly in the end. Dravid's efforts won him the man of the match award. The second ODI match will be played on Saturday May 20, do join us then. This is Sriram Veera, along with Sajan Nair, signing off. Good bye and Good luck!
