The Delhi batsman won his seventh ODI Man of the Series award to match the likes of Sourav Ganguly and Yuvraj Singh on the unique list which is topped by none other than Sachin Tendulkar. Chanderpaul Hemraj has been replaced by Oshane Thomas. The previous game at Mumbai too was dominated by the hosts before they romped to a 3-1 series win.

Kohli returned to lead the side in the five-match ODI series against West Indies at home.

9th death reported at pediatric center amid viral outbreak
Adenovirus frequently causes mild to severe illness with cold-like symptoms, particularly in young children. The department said it is an active outbreak investigation and lab tests could confirm additional cases.

After left-hand batsman Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed cheaply for six, Indian opener Rohit Sharma (63) and skipper Virat Kohli (33) stitched a match-winning partnership of 99 runs to drive their side to a comfortable victory.

Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers ending with 4-34 while there were two wickets apiece for Bumrah (2-11) and Ahmed (2-29). He made most of that reprieve as he hit five boundaries and struck five imperious sixes. Rovman Powell was promoted to open the innings but he struggled badly and departed for a meager 16 runs for which he took 39 balls.

After winning the toss, Windies skipper Jason holder chose to bat first and soon his decision backfired as the home team bundled the visitor for 104 runs. There has been some exceptional record made by the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Earlier in the game, Holder had won the toss and asked the Indians to bowl. The spinners took over and polished off the tail. But the match didn't even last as far as the scheduled 45-minute interval.
