Heavy rain led to the first ODI between the West Indies and India in Guyana being abandoned after just 13 overs.

Rain affected the start of the game, which reduced it to 43 overs per side and just five overs after India opted to bowl first, the rain came again.

The match was subsequently cut down to 34 overs per side and the West Indies managed to score 42 runs before opener Chris Gayle was clean bowled by Kuldeep Yadav.

Shortly after Gayle’s dismissal, the rain returned and since it refused to relent, the umpires had no choice but to call off the match.

The West Indies ended the match on 54/1 after 13 overs, with opener Evin Lewis remaining unbeaten on a 36-ball 40.
