3-1 Series Victory For IndiaThis was supposed to be a Day-Night contest but the sun did not set in Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram. India have made rather short work of the Windies, as this final ODI has lasted all of 46.4 overs. Windies, competitive in the earlier half of the series, seemed to have run out of steam in the last couple of games.

46.4 overs is the shortest completed 50-over ODI in India featuring India. Previous fewest was 48.1 overs – IND (21.1) vs NZ (27), Chennai, 2010.

The first passage of today’s play totally belonged to India. The pitch and the air assisted their bowlers initially and they made full use of it. India’s pacers found swing, their spinners got the ball to grip and they rolled over the opposition for just 104 in 31.5 overs. Both Bhuvi (4-1-11-1) and Bumrah (6-1-11-2) were exceptional with the new ball. While Ravindra Jadeja (9.5-1-34-4) and Kuldeep Yadav (5-1-18-1) had been superb in going for the kill, Team India just found a new bowling sensation- Khaleel Ahmed (7-1-29-2)- the surprise find of the series. 3-1 Series Victory For India

Most of the commentators were of the view : “Talent is not the problem for West Indies as they showcased in the first 3 matches. Temperament surely is.”

While Rohit Sharma ended the series with 202 ODI career 6s, skipper V Kohli amassed 453 runs.
