Pune: Jason Holder-led West Indies scripted a memorable comeback to beat Virat Kohli’s India by 43 runs in the third ODI here on Saturday. With this, the series is now level at 1-1 with the second match being tied.

Needing a target of 284, the hosts lost Rohit Sharma (8 runs) early. Shikhar Dhawan (35) was the next to depart, having put up a 79-run partnership with Virat Kohli.

Kohli then went onto score his 38th ODI century, becoming the first batsman to hit a century in four back-to-back innings against a particular opponent.

However, the big moment for the visitors came when Marlon Samuels saw off the centurion in the 42nd over of the innings.

During the course of the innings, Kohli had put up a 22-run partnership with MS Dhoni (7).


Samuels (3/12) ended up as Windies’ top wicket-taker, whereas Jason Holder (2/46), Ashley Nurse (2/43) and Obed McCoy (2/38) also played their crucial roles. Kemar Roach finished his 10-over spell with 1-48.

Having being denied from a victory after Shai Hope’s heroics resulted in a stunning tie for West Indies during the second game at Visakhapatnam, India will aim to extend their 1-0 lead over the visitors when the two sides lock horns at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Saturday.


The Men in Blue had a cakewalk in the opener when they battered Jason Holder and Co by a comprehensive eight-wicket margin but the Carribean side responded with a gutsy show in the next contest to prove they indeed have what it takes to fight.

With pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah back in the reckoning, the hosts will be aiming for a better bowling display.

India skipper Virat Kohli, who has scored two consecutive centuries for India will once again be a major threat for their counterparts after he became the fastest batsman to breach the 10000 run ODI mark – beating compatriot and batting icon Sachin Tendulkar.


The team management will also expect the lower batting order to come good with just a few months left for the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Although Shimron Hetmyer has been in fine form for West Indies, Kohli and co would want to keep Shai Hope in check after his dazzling century. India could also have their task cut short if the likes of Kieron Powell, Chanderpaul Hemraj and Rovman Powell can step up and conjure up a fight.
