Live updates:

Score: 47/1 in 9.3 overs

India wins toss, bats first

The men in Blue have been given the fright of their life against the novice team Afghanistan in their previous, and they are surely not going to take the Calypso team lightly. But can the Caribbean team beat the Indians who have not lost one match in this World Cup? It is a tantalizing question.

Bhuvi has started bowling practice

However, after a respite for a few days, the weather is going to play a spoilsport once again. Manchester received very heavy rains on Tuesday, and it washed out India’s practice session

The Indian team was forced to practice indoors on Tuesday. However, there is good news that Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, India’s strike bowler is fit and started bowling practice after injuring his hamstring in a previous match against Pakistan at the same venue on 16 June 2019. However, it is not clear if he will be fit enough in the game against West Indies.

Chris Gayle not to retire

When it comes to drama, no one can beat Chris Gayle, the enfant terrible of the Caribbean team. He had declared just before the World Cup that he would be retiring after the championship. It seems he has second thoughts on his retirement plans.

Interacting with the media, he said that he would be playing a couple of ODI after the World Cup probably against India.

It seems Gayle wants to give one last try before bringing curtains on his career. However, skipper Holder did not have an inkling of what was coming, and he only sighed and smiled. He already has his hands full of problems.

The Caribbean has already lost their previous four matches, and one match was abandoned due to bad weather. To add to his woes, top all-rounder Andre Russell is injured.
