INDIA'S new bowling star, Narendra Hirwani, shared a last-wicket stand of 53 with Ravi Shastri at Gwalior, but West Indies won by 73 runs and now lead 5-1 in the seven-match one-day international series.

The spinner, who took 16 wickets on his Test debut last week, was bowled at the end of the 41st over by Pat Patterson.

It was his first one-day international and, though he scored only two, he showed his determination not to sell his wicket cheaply. With Shastri, he made sure that the match went into the last 10 overs.

Carl Hooper's unbeaten 113 lifted the West Indies to 278 for six in 50 overs, Hirwani's 10 unsuccessful overs costing 34. Hooper was at his brilliant best, scoring his runs off 97 balls, and it was almost inevitable that he would win the man of the match award.

Patterson captured three quick wickets and India slumped to 15 for four. Kapil Dev (52) batted bravely and Shastri, who ended unbeaten on 73, hit a six and 11 fours.

Hirwani stuck to his task until Patterson dismissed him with the last ball of his eighth over to end with four for 29.

Richie Richardson was hit on the leg by a stone thrown from the crowd. The final one-day match will be in Trivandrum on Monday.
