India vs West Indies [Q2], Ahmedabad

Group A, Match 4 IND vs WI : Windies on to the Semis

West Indies won the match against India by 3 wickets with 2 balls left after losing 4 quick wickets towards the end. India made 223/9 in 50 overs after being put into bat first in their ICC Champions Trophy match at Ahmedabad on Thursday. India had slumped to 69-3 following the dismissals of Virender Sehwag for 17, Irfan Pathan for 0 and Sachin Tendulkar for 29. Skipper Dravid took India to a healthy position of 131-5 before being run out for 49 in the 31st over. His 61 run partnership with Yuvraj Singh (27) in 13.2 overs was the highest in the Indian innings. Dhoni scored 51 from 65 balls with 2 sixes and one four and put on a 49 run partnership with Harbhajan (15). Bradshaw took 3 for 30.

Both teams have made one change. India has left out Romesh Powar and included R P Singh, while Shivnaraine Chanderpaul replaces Wavell Hinds in the Caribbean side. Both teams have won their opening matches in the league stage, India beating England and West Indies upsetting Australia. India (Playing XI): Rahul Dravid (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel, R P Singh.
West Indies (Playing XI): Brian Lara (Captain), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Chris Gayle, Shivnaraine Chanderpaul, Runako Morton, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Carlton Baugh, Ian Bradshaw, Jerome Taylor, Marlon Samuels.
ICC Champions Trophy, Ahmedabad: India 223-9 (50 overs) lost to West Indies 224-7 (49.4 overs) by 3 wickets

West Indies ready for India

After suffering a humiliating loss against Sri Lanka in the qualifiers, they picked up their game to pull off a huge upset against Australia.
And now, they are up against a team they have beaten six times in their last 10 games and 21 out of the 33 times they have played in India. Brian Lara's back might be hurting since the last game against Australia, but he is expected to return on Thursday. The West Indies, however, are not giving anything away about his position in the batting order. If the Windies beat India in their game on Thursday, they would be considered the favourites against England on Saturday and be all but through to the last four. India team (from): R Dravid (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Mohd Kaif, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Mongia, Mahendra Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel, Rudra Pratap Singh, Romesh Powar.
West Indies team (from) : Brian Lara (Captain), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Runako Morton, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Carlton Baugh (Wicket Keeper), Fidel Edwards, Ian Bradshaw, Jerome Taylor, Marlon Samuels, Wavell Hinds.
