India Unchanged For West Indies ODI Tri-Series

India have named an unchanged 15-man squad to travel to the Caribbean to play Sri Lanka and West Indies in a One-Day International tri-series which begins on 28th June.

West Indies Fined For Slow Over-Rate During Tie

Following the tie with South Africa that knocked them out of the ICC Champions Trophy, West Indies' miserable day got worse when they were fined for maintaining a slow over-rate.

Dramatic Tie Puts South Africa Through, West Indies Depart

West Indies were left to rue the extraordinarily bad timing of Kieron Pollard losing his wicket as they ended up sharing a Duckworth/Lewis method tie which knocked them out of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013. Chasing 231 to win in 31 overs, and with his side just ahead on the Duckworth/Lewis method, Pollard was caught by Dale Steyn off Ryan McLaren, leaving the scores effectively level when the players left the field moments later.

India Secure Semi-Final Spot With West Indies Thrashing

India became the first team to book their place in the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy - knocking Pakistan out while doing so - with a comprehensive demolition of the West Indies. There were several parallels with their defeat of South Africa on Thursday. Shikhar Dhawan hit a century while Ravindra Jadeja was once again mightily impressive with his left-arm spin.

With eyes set firmly on the semi-finals, a confident India will be hoping to keep their momentum going as they take on an unpredictable West Indies side in the third Group B match of the ICC Champions Trophy at the Oval tomorrow.

West Indies Do Just Enough To Beat Pakistan

West Indies returned to the venue of their 2004 ICC Champions Trophy success to beat Pakistan in very similar circumstances in their opening match of the 2013 tournament. The Oval hosted their two-wicket victory over England almost nine years ago and after bowling Pakistan out for 170, they made heavy weather of their run chase before limping over the line to win - by two wickets once again.

Narine, West Indies Boosted By Warm-Up Victory

West Indies spinner Sunil Narine has recently become the number one-ranked One-Day International bowler according to the ICC rankings and he showed exactly why when taking two for 26 during his side's 17-run win over Sri Lanka in their final warm-up game ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013. It was a confidence boost for the 2004 champions after they had been well beaten at the weekend by Australia and has given Narine a lift ahead of their opening game against Pakistan on Friday.

Ramnaresh Sarwan, the West Indies batsman and veteran of his side's success in the 2004 Champions Trophy, believes that the current team can be repeat winners.

The West Indies have named four players uncapped at One-Day International level in their 30-man provisional squad for the ICC Champions Trophy. Left-hand batsman Jonathan Carter and left-arm quick Sheldon Cotterell have yet to represent the West Indies in any format while batsman Nkrumah Bonner and pacer Shannon Gabriel have only played Twenty20 and Test cricket before.

Shillingford Spins Inept Zimbabwe To Innings Defeat

Zimbabwe's second innings was almost a carbon copy of their dismal first innings effort as they collapsed to defeat inside three days in Dominica. A promising start from the openers, making the most of some wayward opening spells from the West Indians, was quickly squandered upon the introduction of spin as again they displayed a poor technique and played the sweep shot poorly against the bouncing ball.

Chanderpaul Pleased With Century After Digging In

Both Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul scored centuries on day two of the second Test against Zimbabwe in Dominica as West Indies assumed a controlling position in the match. Chanderpaul's 108 was his third century in four matches and one he had to work hard for, particularly after Marlon Samuels was dismissed from the first ball of the day.

It Was A Great Day For Me - Shillingford

West Indian off-spinner Shane Shillingford couldn't have asked for much more on his return to Dominica as a Test cricketer, taking five wickets on day one against Zimbabwe. His haul of five for 59, allied to Marlon Samuels taking three for 10, bundled Zimbabwe out for 175 before West Indies closed on 114 for two in reply.

West Indies Unchanged For Dominica

My Best Performance Ever - Shane Shillingford

Shane Shillingford returned career-best figures of six for 49 to bowl West Indies to a comprehensive nine-wicket victory over Zimbabwe in the first Test in Barbados, and he has hailed his effort as his 'best performance ever'. Zimbabwe were dismissed for just 107 in their second innings, leaving West Indies with a paltry target of 12, which either side of the lunch break on the third day, they polished off for the loss of Kieran Powell's wicket.

Shillingford Six Gives Home Side Victory

Zimbabwe's slim hopes of victory all but disappeared in the first over on day three as they lost captain Brendan Taylor for just six. The remainder of the middle-order folded to Shane Shillingford, who ended with six for 49, and but for Craig Ervine, who was dropped twice, an innings defeat would have been the result. As it was, just two overs after an interestingly scheduled lunch interval, West Indies wrapped up a nine-wicket win.

Sammy And Ramdin Reflect On Key Partnership

There was a time on day two of the opening Test in Barbados, with West Indies teetering on 151 for six in reply to Zimbabwe's 211, that the home side were in trouble. However, they were rescued by a record 106-run partnership for the seventh wicket between Darren Sammy, who struck 73 off 69 balls and Denesh Ramdin, who made 62.
