India qualify for Champions Trophy semi-finals
World Cup holders India marched into the Champions Trophy semi-finals with an emphatic win over the West Indies on Tuesday that knocked arch-rivals Pakistan out of the race.
A career-best five-wicket haul by Ravindra Jadeja and a second successive century from Shikhar Dhawan lifted India to an eight-wicket victory at the packed Oval ground on a grim, overcast day in London.
It was India’s second successive win in group B, ensuring them a place in the semi-finals even before their last league match against winless Pakistan in Birmingham on Saturday.
WI Innings Update
Ravindra Jadeja picked up a career-best five for 36 as India kept the West Indies down to 233-9 in a key Champions Trophy match at the Oval on Tuesday.
The left-arm spinner took three wickets for five runs in 14 balls to reduce the West Indies from a comfortable 103-1 to 109-4 after India won the toss on a grim, overcast day in London.
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss in overcast conditions and sent the West Indies in to bat in a key Champions Trophy match at the Oval on Tuesday.
With both teams having won their opening matches, the winner is almost certain to book one of the two semi-final spots from group B.
India retained the same side that defeated South Africa in Cardiff last Thursday.
The West Indies were without wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin, who was handed a two-match ban for claiming a dropped catch during his team’s victory over Pakistan at the Oval on Friday.
Former captain Darren Sammy replaced Ramdin in the side, with opener Johnson Charles picked to keep wickets.
India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma.
West Indies: Dwayne Bravo (capt), Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Ramnaresh Sarwan.
Watch this space for latest updates and match report of the Group B match between India and West Indies (IND and WI) in London on 11th June.
West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo is confident of containing India’s batting firepower when the two sides meet in a key Champions Trophy match at the Oval on Tuesday.
The winner is almost certain to take one of the two semi-final berths from group B after both teams won their opening games, albeit in contrasting fashion.
India, the reigning World Cup champions, brushed aside injury-hit South Africa by 26 runs in Cardiff after an impressive batting display saw them post a commanding 331-7.
The West Indies shot Pakistan out for 170 at the Oval on Friday, but then showed their vulnerability while batting as they lost eight wickets while chasing the modest target.
All-rounder Bravo, who replaced Darren Sammy as one-day captain ahead of the tournament, said the close result did not worry him as his side prepared to face the in-form Indians.
India, who have won eight of their last 11 one-dayers against the West Indies over the past three years, will look to continue their fine batting form over the past week.
They chased down Sri Lanka’s massive 333-5 with an over to spare in a warm-up game in Birmingham, with Dinesh Karthik making an unbeaten 106 and Virat Kohli slamming 144.
India then rode on opener Shikhar Dhawan’s 114 off 94 balls to pile up another 300-plus total against a depleted South African attack missing injured strike bowler Dale Steyn.
But the bowlers will have to deliver against a line-up that has match-winning batsmen like Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and Kieron Pollard.
