Rampaul takes 5-51 but Windies fall

Chennai, India – West Indies suffered another batting collapse as they fell to India by 80 runs in their final ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 Group B match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk.

The Windies slipped from 154-2 in the 31st over to be bowled out for 188 with 42 balls left in reply to India’s 268 all out in 49.1 overs. The weak batting undid a career-best spell from fast bowler Ravi Rampaul, in his first World Cup match, and another fine innings from Devon Smith, the in-form left-handed opener.
