Third One-Day International


At St Vincent, April 30. West Indies won by 18 runs. Toss: India.

India were seemingly heading towards another victory while Ganguly and Dravid were comfortably adding 130 in 29 overs for the second wicket, but then collapsed to defeat: their last eight fell for 46 in nine overs thanks to a mixture of hysterical swiping and mindless running. On the best pitch of the tour, Williams made 76 in 110 balls and his stand of 84 with Hooper was the basis of a challenging West Indies total. Tendulkar's dismissal in the fifth over was an early setback for India but Ganguly and Dravid were in charge until panic set in.

Man of the Match: S. C. Williams.
