‘Whitewashed by PAK, BAN and INDIA’ – Twitter reacts as India whitewashes West Indies by beating them in 3rd 119-run ODI » FirstSportz
India defeated West Indies by 119 runs (DLS method) due to rain delaying the game by several hours. With that win, India whitewashed Windies 3-0.
India had won the draw and chose to bat first. Shubman Gill was the star with the racquet as he hit 98 runs on 98 balls. He missed his first international century due to in-game rain. Shikhar Dhawan also played half a century (58 runs from 74 balls), while Shreyas Iyer hit 44 runs from 34 balls. In the end, her score was 225/3 in 36 overs. The overs were first reduced from 50 to 40 and later to 36 due to rain.
West Indies needed 257 runs in 35 overs to win. They didn’t start well as Kyle Mayers departed on duck while other opener Shai Hope hit 22 runs on 33 ball before Yuzvendra Chahal threw a full ball and Hope came down the lane trying to swing it. But he missed it completely and Sanju Samson quickly caught it.
Next hitter Shamrah Brooks walked back as soon as he arrived. Like Mohammed Siraj, who fired Mayers on duck, Brooks also fired on duck. Siraj delivered a long ball around the middle and Brook went to flick it but he missed and he hit it on the pad.
Brandon King hit 42 carries from 37 balls with five fours and a six before Axar Patel caught him. Patel threw it outside and the ball shot through after landing. Nicholas Pooran smashed five fours and a six to hit 42 runs on 32 balls before Prasidh Krishna sent him back. Krishna threw a long ball and Pooran lagged behind and tried to pull it but he had gone to the center where skipper Shikhar Dhawan caught it over his head.
In the end West Indies was able to score 137 runs and India won the match with 119 runs by DLS method. Chahal abolished four gates for India.
