After a poor show in England, India were slated to play the Windies in their own backyard. While the overseas record of India has not been great, Virat Kohli and his men have been ruthless at home. They have piled up victories after victories and have crossed all hurdles that have come their way. The Windies had a big task at hand as no one gave them a chance of pulling up an upset against the Indians.
After a disappointing show in the Test series, the visitors have shown some fight in the two ODI matches. However, they have fallen short of victory courtesy to Virat Kohli’s sublime form. The Indian captain is in the form of his life and seems to be batting at a different level. Kohli seems to be having centuries for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the first ODI at Guwahati Kohli scored 140 runs and was instrumental in India’s eight-wicket victory.
Continuing his golden run, he went on to score an impressive 157 in the second ODI to bag the second Man of the Match award in as many games. In this process, Virat Kohli surpassed 10,000 ODI runs for India becoming the fastest ever to do so. While the best of bowlers are falling short of ideas to dismiss Kohli, Windies coach Stuart Law has said that his team has a plan in place.

“How do you get Virat out? He gave us chance at 40. He is a wonderful player. I just love the way he goes about compiling an innings. Looks like he is working very hard but he’s doing it very easy. So we do have plans to him,” Law was quoted as saying by Times Now.
The run machine was dropped by Jason Holder when he was on 40 that costed the Windies dearly. The story of the match could have been different had Holder held on to the catch.
“At the moment, he is coming up a lot of good answers, so we have to just keep asking questions about his technique and his abilities. In the end, he is only human. But when we get an opportunity, we have got to grab hold of it,” Law added.
The third ODI is set to be played on Saturday in Pune. With Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah’s return, India’s will be looking to spoil the Windies party once again.
