RAVI SHASTRI, India's stand-in captain, led his country to their first one-day international victory at home over West Indies at Eden Gardens, Calcutta, on Saturday. His left-arm spinners inspired a 55-run triumph, reducing West Indies to a 2-1 lead in the seven-match series.

India made 222 for seven in 45 overs as Shastri, temporary replacement for the injured Dilip Vengsarkar, stopped the rot when the Indian innings threatened to collapse and took two for 31 as West Indies were toppled for 167 in 41.5 overs.

Kapil Dev, trapping Desmond Haynes cheaply, and Sanjeev Sharma gave West Indies a worrying start against seam, and the switch to spin kept wickets falling with Maninder Singh taking two for 19 off nine overs as West Indies slipped to 92 for four.

Carl Hooper and Gus Logie raised West Indian hopes with a 60-run fifth wicket stand, but after that they collapsed, losing the last six wickets while only 15 runs were added.

India's total owed much to a second-wicket stand of 128 between Arun Lal and Mohinder Amarnath after Krishnamachari Srikkanth fell to the 11th ball of the match. Amarnath made 70 before being run out and Lal 51.

Shastri had paired up with Mohammed Azharuddin, adding 54 for the sixth wicket after the Indian innings looked like disintegrating when four wickets crashed for 10 runs.
