India vs West Indies, 5th ODI, Ind vs WI, Indian Express Win over West Indies marks Virat Kohli’s second ODI series win as a captain.

India rode on Virat Kohli’s unbeaten knock of 111 runs and a well-supported half-century by Dinesh Karthik to win the five-match ODI series 3-1. Kohli, who scored his 28th ODI hundred, surpassed batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar as he hit his 18th hundred while chasing. After winning the toss, West Indies were off to shaky start. However, Shai and Kyle Hope’s innings helped the hosts get past a total of 200. Mohammed Shami, who is now only the third bowler to take 91 ODI wickets in 49 matches, claimed his sixth four-wicket haul to bundle out Windies for 205 runs. In reply, India lost Shikhar Dhawan in the first over itself. But Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane kept India’s innings under control. Later the Indian skipper and Dinesh Karthik forged an unbeaten partnership of 122 runs as India win their second one-day series under Kohli’s captaincy.
