India A vs West Indies A Live Score, 1st ODI Match of West Indies A Team tour of India 2013 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore played on September 15th 2013.
Skipper Yuvraj Singh led India A's batting assault on West Indies A to help the home team post 312 for four in rain-hit 42-overs-a-side one-day match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
Yuvraj hit 123 off 89 deliveries while Yusuf Pathan, who is also eyeing a comeback to the national side, hit a quick-fire 70 not out off 32 balls with four fours and six maximums. The pair was involved in 125-run stand off just 55 balls for the fourth wicket.
Yuvraj, who scored 18th century in List A cricket, hit eight fours and seven sixes before falling to right-arm spinner Nkrumah Bonner in 40th over.
The 31-year-old left-hander was though circumspect in the beginning as he took 39 balls to hit his first boundary and scored his fifty in 60 balls. But, in the next 20 balls he raced to his century as a torrent of fours and sixes followed from his blade as the visiting bowlers had no clue how to contain him.
This was his first century in 2013 after 29 innnings in any format. His last hundred came for Punjab against Madhya Pradesh in Gwalior in December 2012 when he scored 131 - stats via Mohandas Menon.
Mandeep Singh, who came in at number three, scored 67 off 78 balls before being bowled by left-arm spinner Nikita Miller on the first ball of 31st over. Mandeep's knock was laced with seven fours and one six as he and Yuvraj were involved in a 100-run stand for the third wicket.
Earlier, India started on a poor note losing Unmukt Chand (1) in the third over of the match before Robin Uthappa departed in the 12th over after scoring 23 off 37 balls with the help of two fours.
