India claimed their 3rd consecutive ODI series victory in West Indies against the hosts since 2009 with an eight-wicket win in the final ODI. The five-match series came down to the last ODI, where India chased down 206 runs with 8 wickets to spare. The last game of the series was dominated by the Indians with the bat and ball.
In a low scoring game, King Kohli still managed to score more than half the amount of runs required to win the game. He is so proficient in the second innings that this is his 18th century during a chase. He played with a measured step and was glorious when attacking the ball. Kohli decorated his century with 12 boundaries and 2 lofty sixes. And not surprisingly, he was also nominated as the Man of the Match for a true captain’s knock.
Mohammed Shami went wicket-less in the last game. This game being only his second of the series proved to be a good outing for the 26 year old. He attacked with the new ball, but it was in the latter overs that he proved lethal. Starting from the half-centurion Shai Hope, he picked up four wickets in the death overs. He consistently hit the deck hard and cleaned up the tail in no time, including getting the crucial wicket of Jason Holder who was striking the ball at over 100.
