    A comfortable win in the end for India and that was actually pretty obvious after the efforts from their batters. Two hundreds from the openers, scintillating knocks from Pant and Iyer set the tone for them early on. Their bowlers then ensured there was no upset on the cards as they restricted the Windies to well below than what they needed. The Windies needed something special to chase this down, Hope and Pooran did exceedingly well to keep them in the game for a while but to keep that going was always going to be difficult. They were the only two who showed some fight. Both scored in the 70s but a mammoth effort was needed from them which they could not deliver. Nothing else to talk about in this West Indian batting line-up. Except for Lewis amongst the genuine batters, nobody crossed the 20-run mark. Paul though played a handy cameo right at the end but the game till then was dead and buried.

The West Indies were set a target of 389 by India with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul scoring centuries as part of a 227-run opening stand. The visitors started the chase well with a 61-run stand between Shai Hope and Evin Lewis. Shardul Thakur got the breakthrough off the last ball of the 11th over with Lewis mistiming a pull right down the throat of Shreyas Iyer.

Shimron Hetmyer, who scored 139 in the previous match, replaced Lewis but his stay didn’t last long primarily thanks to a brilliant fielding effort from Shreyas. He first stopped the ball from racing to the boundary in extraordinary fashion, tumbled over the ropes and recovered before gathering the ball and completing a gun throw to the non-striker’s end. Jadeja, who was bowling the over, collected the throw and whipped away the bails promptly to complete the run-out. Hetmyer could only make four runs off seven balls.
