THE West Indies clinched the one-day series against India by recovering from a mid-innings collapse against Krishnamachari Srikkanth, a change bowler, to win by four wickets in Faridabad.

The West Indies lead 4-1 in the series. The final two matches are at Gwalior on Friday and Trivandrum on Monday. The visitors, chasing a modest total of 230 for six, cruised to 126 for one in 30 overs.

Ravi Shastri, the Indian captain, then introduced Srikkanth to the attack. The opener, bowling quickish off-breaks, responded by dismissing Phil Simmons for 67, Richie Richardson for 49, and Viv Richards, the captain, for only nine runs, leaving the West Indies at 155 for four.

But Gus Logie and Carl Hooper stayed calm and although Logie was run out for 29 and Jeff Dujon made only nine, Hooper, with 39, guided his side to victory with five deliveries to spare. Srikkanth finished with three for 25 from six overs.

Mohinder Amarnath, 100 not out, pulled the Indian innings around from 76 for four with his first century in one-day cricket.

His aggressive innings, which featured a series of brilliant strokes off the front foot, included a six and five fours. Kapil Dev cracked 45 from only 44 balls.

Despite their efforts the final total never looked like extending the West Indians.
