The first ODI between West Indies and India has been called off due to persistent rain. West Indies won the toss and elected to bowl first as the Indian openers got off to a great start. Both Shikhar Dhawan (87) and Ajinkya Rahane (62) got to their fifties as the visitors were looking good to post a big total on board before rain interrupted play. India were 199 for 3 in 39.2 overs when play was officially called off at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain.(SCORECARD)

For India, this series is also an ideal platform to test the team's bench strength. With Jasprit Bumrah being rested for the series, it will be an ideal opportunity for the captain to check out Mohammed Shami, who did not get a game during the Champions Trophy. The pacer has not played any official ODI since the 2015 World Cup semi-final post which he had multiple surgeries and played a few Test matches only. Shami will be keen to regain his place in the ODI XI and West Indies gives him a proper chance to do so.

So, that's it as far the coverage of this game is concerned. The next ODI between the two teams will be on Sunday, 25th June, at the same venue. The weather forecast isn't great for the weekend either. Let's hope the rain gods relent. The action will start at 0900 local, 1300 GMT. Do join us for that game. Until next time, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!

India had a decent outing with the bat in the 39.2 overs that happened today. Shikhar Dhawan continued his form from the Champions trophy to stroke an elegant 87 while comeback man Ajinkya Rahane utilized the opportunity to conjure a fifty of his own. The pair put on 132 for the first wicket before the Windies struck thrice for just 53 runs to slow things down. Skipper Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni were planning to open up but instead, the heavens opened up to play spoilsport. Devendra Bishoo and Jason Holder were tidy for the hosts.

UPDATE 1407 LOCAL - The rain has finally stopped. However, the intensity of the showers has caused a beating to the outfield. Lot of puddles on the covers.

!

UPDATE 1335 LOCAL - Ominous signs from the Queens Park Oval, it's raining heavily now and there is lightning as well. Things looking very bleak at the moment.
