Dominant India flex batting muscle to seal series


(ESPNcricinfo) – India showed their batting might to beat West Indies by 200 runs in the series decider in Tarouba. 

They have now won 13 consecutive ODI series against West Indies, stretching all the way back to 2006.

Playing without Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli once again, India rode on the half-centuries from Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson and Hardik Pandya to post a mammoth 351 for 5.

After that, West Indies were never in the game. Mukesh Kumar wrecked their chase with three early wickets. And when Shardul Thakur also picked up two in his successive overs, it left them tottering at 50 for 6. A 59-run stand for the ninth wicket, between Alzarri Joseph and Gudakesh Motie, only delayed the inevitable.

Summarized scores: India 351 for 5 (Gill 85, Kishan 77, Pandya 70*, Samson 51, Shepherd 2-73) beat West Indies 151 (Motie 38*, Thakur 4-37, Mukesh 3-30) by 200 runs
