Two men rose to the occasion and scripted their maiden centuries at Chennai on Sunday. The final outcome of the match was more sweet for India's Manoj Tiwary than West Indies' Kieron Pollard. A look at how the hosts wrapped the series 4-1 in their favour. (AP and AFP images)
Stand-in skipper Gautam Gambhir won the toss and opted to bat. India however had a disastrous start as Ajinkya Rahane was removed by Kemar Roach (center) off the second delivery of the day.
In walked Tiwary and his strategy to use his front-foot stance bode well on a pitch that kept the occasional ball keeping low.
Kohli managed to bring up his fifty, though most of the runs came through singles and doubles for the Delhi batsman.
Tiwary at the other end, kept his focus, slapped boundaries and eventually completed his maiden 100.
Anthony Martin then dismissed Kohli (80) to give West Indies a clear view of the Indian middle-order. The hosts managed to reach a challenging total however, that of 267/6.
India's bowling began well as well. Irfan Pathan claimed the wicket of Lendl Simmons of the first delivery.
Kieron Powell (15) too fell to Pathan while Marlon Samuels (6) and Jason Mohammed (2) followed shortly after, victims of Abhimanyu Mithun. Ravindra Jadeja (in pic) then claimed Denesh Ramdin (14).
There was a change in script however when Pollard came to the middle. He smashed his way all around to score at a rapid pace. His fifty came off 43 balls and had 4 sixes.
The other end was manned by Andre Russell (53)but once he was run-out, no other batsman could stand up to support Pollard. Rahul Sharma (in pic) is seen here celebrating the wicket of Sunil Narine.
Having hit 10 sixes and having lost all but one partner, Pollard finally found the man on the legal side of the rope to give India the match by 34 runs, but not without a fight.
