The ODI series was a story of two chapters. In the first, the Windies were fiercely competitive and at times gave India a run for their money. The batsman proved to be Windies’ strength in the first three One Day Internationals but what followed was a downfall of form, two heavy defeats and Windies wait to win a bilateral series against India continues.
A shorter format suits the Windies’ batting style more than any other team. The Caribbean team would be hoping to go home with at least one trophy in their kitty.
