Roach kept his cool as he flicked Umesh Yadav (3/43) towards square leg to carry West Indies to its second win in the tournament. With nine points from two matches, West Indies has a strong chance of making it to the finals.
“That was a good innings, previous game I struggled a bit. Wicket improved a bit, it got flatter and was more of a batting pitch. I would have liked to get three figures and carry my team to victory. I am disappointed about it,” Charles said after the win.
India was restricted to 229-7 in their 50 overs while the hosts recovered from 26-3 to sneak over the line with 14 balls to spare.
Champions Trophy star Shikhar Dhawan was caught and bowled by Roach (2-41) for 11 while Virat Kohli went for the same score.
India opener Rohit Sharma made a patient 60 off 89 balls and added 59 for the third wicket with Dinesh Karthik (23). Suresh Raina (44) and MS Dhoni (27) also chipped in as the Indians struggled on a difficult track.
“We tried to take as many wickets as possible, one or two edges going to the fielders would have been different, we were close to winning it. It was just a matter of one wicket. Great game by West Indies, great fight by us, great entertainment,” Kohli said.
West Indies was in dire straits as it lost both Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels within the first five overs and precariously placed at 26 for three.
Yadav removed West Indies’ best batsman Gayle (11) and followed it up with wicket of Devon Smith (0) while Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled Samuels (1) to reduce West Indies to 26 for three.
However, Charles was outstanding, hitting the first six scoring strokes for boundaries as he punished both Yadav and Kumar.
