Virat Kohli's 43rd ODI ton helps India beat Windies by six wickets and clinch series 2-0

Virat Kohli's 43rd ODI ton helps India beat Windies by six wickets and clinch series 2-0

Trinidad, Aug 15 (UNI) Captain Virat Kohli's 43rd ODI century (114* off 99 ) helped India beat Windies by 6 wickets in the rain-affected third and final match of the three match series and clinch the ODI series 2-0 here at the Queen’s Park Oval.

Chasing a DLS target of 255 runs in 35 overs, India were off to a bad start as they lost the wicket (run out) of Rohit Sharma (10 runs) in the 3rd over on Wednesday.

After Rohit's wicket, Virat came to bat and had a 66 run partnership with Shikar Dhwan for the second wicket. Shikhar Dhawan scored 36 off 36 before getting out to Fabian Allen.

Rishabh Pant failed with the bat once again as he went for a golden duck.

From there on, Virat Kohli dominated the Windies bowlers and scored his 43rd ODI hundred off 99 balls with 14 fours.

Kohli received excellent support from Shreyas Iyer who continued his good form and played a superb innings of 65 off 41 balls in a 120-run third-wicket partnership.

At the end, India chased down the target 256/4 (32.3) quite comfortably with 15 balls to spare to clinch ODI series 2-0.

Earlier, superb innings by Chris Gayle (72 off 41), Evin Lewis (43 off 29) and Nicholas Pooran's late cameo 30 off 16 helped Windies post a fighting total of 240-7 in 35 overs.

Virat Kohli was declared 'Man of the Match' and 'Man of the Series' for his brilliant performance in the whole series.
