India vs West Indies, 4th ODI (D/N), Mumbai (BS), Oct 29 2018, West Indies tour of India

Match Result: India won by 224 runs

Player of the Match: Rohit Sharma [ 162(137) and 3 catches]

Match Report: One of the biggest wins in ODI format for India. A clinical performance with both bat and ball. India’s opening partnership was well set with Rohit and Dhawan providing the necessary fireworks. This was yet another instance of Rohit proving how dangerous he is once he gets in. It was almost seemed like an EA Sports game. Press those buttons and Boom! Out goes the ball.

We are forgetting someone here though. Rayudu. Ambati Rayudu was stunning too. His century came at quick pace just like Rohit. Helping India to set a mammoth total of 377. Once that score was set, India were the favorites all along. Jason Holder was the only batsman to get beyond the score of 50. He showed some grit, put on a fight but that was never going to be enough. Khaleel Ahmed was the pick of the lot. Picked up 3 wickets in the 5 overs he bowled. At an economy of 2.60. Kuldeep Yadav impressed too with 3 wickets as well. West Indies never got going. At no stage did they pose a threat to even get close to say, 250. The target was too far for them.

Virat Kohli | Winning captain: “Definitely back on track. Ticked all the boxes, clinical in all three departments. We were put under a bit of pressure in the 3rd ODI, but we bounced back. Rayudu’s taken his opportunity with both hands, and we need to back him till the 2019 World Cup. He reads the game well, and he bats with intelligence. Khaleel is an exciting talent. If the pitch has something to offer, he can extract something. Bowled in the right areas, not too full not too short. Happy to see him make the ball talk.”

Jason Holder | Losing captain: “We didn’t play well enough. I guess we allowed them to score too many runs, and then we didn’t apply ourselves. Lost wickets up front, and no momentum thereafter. Run-outs are never something we want, and they were two of our better players. We had to do a lot to rebuild, but that never happened. I’ve been hearing about batting higher up the order myself, but need to see our team balance. Maybe next game!”

Rohit Sharma | Man of the Match : “Been doing slip catching for a while. I can hear Virat laugh, but I’ve been catching in the slips for a while now. Important to hold on to them. Catches come to you all the time, but when you’re fielding in the slips for Kuldeep, it’s not easy off his hand, but I learnt to be ready for his googly. Very clinical performance from us after losing two early wickets.

A big partnership was the game-changer, and in all four games we’ve had big partnerships that have allowed us to stay in the game and post big totals. We have understood the importance of them. And once you’re set, you need to make it count. Also heartening to see us bowl as a unit. This kind of performance was a long time coming, but very happy to see such a dominating performance. Pacers were swinging the ball, spinners were turning it.”
