A dominant performance by India in the India Vs West Indies last ODI of the series saw them banish away West Indies to seal the series 3-1. A bowling performance that was up among the best India has delivered this season saw them dismiss the visitors for a paltry 104 in 31.5 overs before going onto romp onto a 9 wicket win. Rohit Sharma’s half-century and an anchor knock of 33 by Virat Kohli saw the duo remain unbeaten to take their side to a comprehensive series-clinching win.
Playing at the Greenfield International Stadium on a pitch that was promised to offer plenty of runs, West Indies batted first in their quest to pile on a huge target and put under pressure in a make or break chase. However, they wilted under the gigantic task at hand themselves, folding for just beyond 100 to gift wrap India a comfortable chase.
Losing Kieron Powell for a duck wasn’t as bad as losing Shai Hope immediately for 0 as well. The inform Hope has been one of the main reasons West Indies have performed well this season and his wicket to make it 2-2 was a sting in the back for West Indies. Getting cleaned bowled by Bumrah who has been India’s mainstay in the bowling department, Hope was back in the hut with West Indies’ horror show with the bat well on its way.
Repairing the initial damage, Powell and Samuels stitched together a mini-partnership to show some life in West Indies’ innings. However, Ravindra Jadeja who was in devastating form on the day, put an end to Samuels, one of only two batsmen for the West Indies to notch up a score of 20 plus for the visitors.
Working in tandem to suffocate West Indies, India’s bowling unit put in an all rounding performance. Aiding the pacers in style were Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav who cleaned up the West Indies middle-order in double quick time. 2 wickets for Bumrah and Khaleel Ahmed and 4 for Jadeja saw India chase a petty total of 105.
Coming out to chase, Dhawan who was in dire need of runs after having failed to deliver a big knock in yet series this year continued his poor shot selection to give his wicket away at just 6 runs. The early wicket hardly derailed India’s innings though as Rohit Sharma (63) and Virat Kohli (33) worked around the runs with relative ease to make small work of the chase and wrap up another series win against the West Indies.
