India would have liked a win to start the one-day international series against West Indies and were on course of posting a big total but rain played spoilsport as the first ODI was abandoned due to rain. India managed to reach 199 for the loss of three wickets from 39.2 overs that were possible before rain. There were chances of resuming the game but the rain returned again. Rain played hide-and-seek and the game was finally called off due to rain and wet outfield.
