Third one-day international

West Indies v India

At Bridgetown, May 29. India won by seven wickets (D/L method). Toss: India.

After 12 defeats and five draws at Bridgetown, from eight Tests, seven other first-class games and two one-day internationals, India's historic first victory at Kensington Oval was comprehensive. Yohannan set West Indies back by dismissing both openers in a testing spell, his first in limited-overs internationals, and Lara lasted only ten balls. After a short rain-break cost one over, Sarwan and Hooper rallied, with 87, but the last seven wickets crashed for 46; Agarkar finished them off with three yorkers in ten balls, leaving Hooper stranded on a run-a-ball 76. India were never pressed pursuing a modest target. The left-handed Mongia saw them most of the way, with an accomplished 74, off 104 balls, in his second innings of the tour.

Man of the Match: D. Mongia.
