  India win Barabati ODI, clinch series 2-1
,22 Dec 2019 ()

India clinched the three-match ODI series against West Indies 2-1 after winning the thrilling last game by four wickets at Barabati Stadium here today. Barabati proved lucky for India as captain Virat Kohli and his teammates won the series after losing the first match of the series earlier in Chennai.

The win boosted the image of Odisha Cricket Association, which played host to the ODI under the guidance of a newly elected secretary Sanjay Behera and president Pankaj Lochan Mohanty.

Chasing 316 to win, India suffered a mini-collapse in the latter part of the second innings before useful knocks from Shardul Thakur (17*) and Ravindra Jadeja (39*) ensured they got home with nine balls to spare.

India started the chase well as openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul put together a 122-run stand for the first wicket to give India the ideal platform to get the win high-scoring match.

Rohit (63) and Rahul (77) scored freely as the West Indies bowlers looked at sea on a pitch that was good to bat on. Captain Virat Kohli played a vital knock, bringing up his 55th ODI half-century to steady the ship.

Earlier, Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard hit attacking half-centuries to power the West Indies to 315-5 after being sent in to bat first. Pooran, who hit 89 off 63 balls, and Pollard (74*), put on 135 runs for the fifth wicket as the West Indies put up a challenging total after being in trouble at 144-4.

India paceman Navdeep Saini claimed two wickets after being handed his ODI debut. The 27-year-old Saini got his maiden ODI wicket after sending the dangerous Shimron Hetmyer back to the pavilion for 37.

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were adjudged the Player of the Match and Player of the Series respectively.
