A low score to chase can be tricky and India lost the early wickets of the trio of Dhawan, Rohit and Kohli. Ajinkya Rahane and Suresh Raina tried to stem the flow of wickets but lost their wickets at crucial junctures. Dhoni, the man for crisis rose to the occasion and guided the team home along with Ashwin at the other end. West Indies suffer another gut-wrenching defeat.
A hard fought win but a win nonetheless! Indian juggernaut continues to roll, it is 4 in 4 now and there seems to be no stopping the Men in Blue. It was an excellent bowling display to keep West Indies to 182. Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav were consistent with the wickets and Mohit Sharma continued to impress with his discipline. The spinners chipped in with wickets as well and West Indies succumbed to a poor total on a very good batting track.
