A big opening stand between Rohit Sharma and K.L. Rahul, Virat Kohli”s 85 and a late surge from Shardul Thakur and Ravindra Jadeja helped India chase down 316 and win the three-match series against the West Indies 2-1 at the Barabati Stadium here on Sunday.
The West Indies seemed to have gained the upper hand after dismissing Kohli late in the game, but Thakur came in and turned the game around with the bat to see the hosts home.
India’s chase started with yet another strong opening stand between Rahul (77) and Rohit (63). The pair put up 122 runs in just 21.2 overs to put India firmly in the driving seat.
