When Umesh Yadav hit the winning runs at Barabati much to the joy of a packed house, India notched up their tenth successive ODI win on home soil, last time they were beaten in India was in the group stages of 2011 World Cup. Despite their winning form taking a dip on overseas tours, India remain a formidable proposition for visitors. West Indies will have to come up with something special to end their run of success.
Actually, the Darren Sammy-led side nearly stopped India in the first ODI of the five match series but Rohit Sharma had other ideas. A genuinely match-winning 72 from him coupled with ‘batting antics’ of last two batsmen was enough to see India through. The humdinger at Cuttack was second time in four days that the two sides battled it out till the last moment after the third Test had a similar heart-stopping climax.
India without two of their most prominent performers in the 50-over format, MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar may seem a bit light on batting but promising youngsters like Rohit, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja make up for their absence. While West Indies had knocked the stuffing out of India’s chase by removing half the side for just 59 runs, Rohit and Jadeja, who batted at number seven saved India with a gutsy 83-run partnership.
Likewise, an inexperienced bowling attack has done a good job thus far. Varun Aaron and Umesh Yadav provide a rare sight of India having two out and out quicks. And, their feisty batting also has contributed to the team cause. R Ashwin is fast maturing as a spinner for all formats but his running between the wickets which nearly cost India a hard-earned victory is an area of concern.
