India sealed the ODI series against West Indies winning the last ODI by 96 wickets. Batting first men in blue were knocked out at 265. India was reduced to 42/3 before Iyer score 80 run-knock and Pant added a valiant 110 run stand. The biggest gain for India was pacer Prasidh Krishna who in the second ODI picked the winning wicket. Thanks to a late flurry from Deepak Chahar, Washington Sundar and Mohammed Siraj, Team India crossed the 250-run mark
West Indies couldn’t match the pace as India registered its maiden bilateral series clean sweep versus West Indies with an emphatic win. Under the lights in the evening, the Windies batters’ inability to deal with quality bowling was exposed yet again. Mohammed Siraj and Deepak Chahar made early inroads with their swing, Prasidh Krishna’s pace was too good to negotiate with Kuldeep Yadav bamboozling the middle- and lower-middle order with his uncanny wrist spin. The Caribbean side got off to a brilliant start after they were able to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli under 40 runs.
The three-day ODI clocked the 1000th ODI achievement for team India. India and the Windies have played 136 ODI matches to date. Out of which India pocketed 67 victories.
