MS Dhoni Plays Prank on Rohit Sharma After Windies Victory

Adjust Comment Print

Jadeja, who turns 30 next month, picked up 4-34 as the West Indies batting line-up capitulated for 104 inside 32 overs after captain Jason Holder won the toss and opted to bat at Thiruvananthapuram. Windies definitely up their game when it comes to ODI cricket but India become an even more formidable side in ODI cricket at the comfort of their home.

Despite that, the India skipper breached another record as the Men in Blue came out on top in another bilateral home series victory.

The tourists also included an extra fast bowler in Oshane Thomas, who took the place of opening batsman Chandrapaul Hemraj.

Rohit Sharma, 63 not out, and Kohli, 33 not out, made good on their stupendous form through this series, grinding out the visitors' bowling attack with a 99-run partnership for the second wicket off 78 balls. BCCI had also declared the inclusion of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for the final three ODIs against West Indies.

India and Windies will now battle it out in a three-match T20I series.

The two sides now face each other in the three-match T20 Internationals.

The tail survived just long enough for Jadeja, who took a five-over break after an unbroken first spell of eight overs, to return and bag two more wickets to finish with 4 for 34. The previous game at Mumbai too was dominated by the hosts before they romped to a 3-1 series win.

Rohit entertained the crowd with some stylish sixes and India easily chased the target with 9 wickets remaining. Having already inside-edged once while driving away from his body, Samuels fell in Jadeja's second over, reaching out once again, this time only managing to pop a catch to extra-cover as the ball stopped on him.
