India v West Indies, 1st ODI

January 21, 2007
Sourav Ganguly marked his comeback with a scintillating 98 as India very nearly lost the plot in the dying stages before scampering home to a thrilling 14-run victory in the first one-dayer against the West Indies in Nagpur on Sunday.

Under enormous pressure to arrest their sliding fortunes in ODIs of late, the hosts rattled up a record 338 for three on a placid track and managed to stop the Caribbeans at 324 for eight to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series at the VCA stadium.

Ganguly, coming back into the one-day fold after a gap of 15 months, thrilled the crowd with his strokes before missing what would have been his 23rd century by a whisker through a run-out.
