Looking at the performances in the Test series, many thought that the ODI series between India and Windies would be a bummer. However, to everyone’s pleasant surprise, the Windies have pulled above their weights to shock the hosts. While many thought India would clean sweep them, the visitors were only eyeing at an upset.
Although their performance in the last two games wasn’t as good, they clearly gave the Men in Blue a good run for their money. There was a lot of anticipation about this series out of nowhere. However, India, as they usually do, emerged to be the better side and won the series 3-1. There were some exceptional performers from both the teams even though most of them were from the Indian team.
Here is the Combined XI from both the teams:
1. Rohit Sharma
If the Indian skipper Virat Kohli was on a rampage in this series, his subordinate Rohit Sharma wasn’t left far behind. His performances were almost on par with Kohli and he put his class on display yet again in this series. The Hitman (as they say) kicked off with a century in the first game but missed out in the next two encounters.
Rohit came back strong in the fourth ODI with yet another 150+ score. He went into the T20 mode in the last game where he scored an unbeaten 63 while chasing a paltry score. Despite scoring only 12 runs in the 2nd and 3rd ODIs, he went on to be the second highest run scorer. Sharma accumulated 389 runs in five innings at an average of 130.
