West Indies and Shivnarine Chanderpaul in particular battled bravely, but in the end fell short of their victory target of 339 in a one-day thriller with India where there were runs in abundance. The West Indies batsmen never gave up in pursuit of the total and they needed 20 runs from the final over, but Chanderpaul's brilliant unbeaten 149 proved to be in vain as the hosts sealed victory by 14 runs.
The left-hander hit 16 fours and three sixes in his knock which came off 136 balls, while the aggregate of 662 runs made it the highest-scoring ODI ever staged in India. For India, former skipper Sourav Ganguly, back in India's one-day squad after 16 months on the sidelines, made a superb 98, and his innings was followed by 11.5 over - 119 run partnership by Dhoni (62) and Dravid (54).
