A dominant India thrashed the West Indies by 224 runs in the fourth ODI to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the five-match series at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, on Monday.
Rohit Sharma (162) and Ambati Rayudu (100) struck centuries for India while young paceman Khaleel Ahmed took three wickets in India’s massive win.
Captain Jason Holder top-scored for the tourists with his unbeaten 54-run knock.
India had won the Guwahati ODI, tied the Vizag match and lost the Pune contest. The final match will be played in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday (November 1).
Here is how Twitter reacted to the match:
Clinical performance by India, today. Was good to see the bowlers stepping up as well and was particularly happy to see the spell from young Khaleel after top knocks from Rohit and Rayudu earlier #IndvWI

Good win for India. Rohit was a treat to watch , so was Rayudu and good effort from the bowlers. Khaleel Ahmed was very clever today. Now Thiruvanathpuram with the series open #IndvWI

A good all-round performance today by India. Khaleel Ahmed was brilliant in that spell and being a left-armer can become the third seamer for the world cup. Rayudu at 4 and Khaleel as third seamer might be few of the gaps that are needed to be filled #IndvWI

Really excited with Khaleel Ahmed as a seam alternative. He is left handed, bowls full, swings ball both ways. Good basic action & likeable youthful exuberance. 👏👏👏🙏.

The defeat had hurt. Collective effort. Well played Team India. Literally. And @ImRo45 was special.

A team man is one whom the entire team can bank on to 'Do' well and to get them past the line no matter what the situation is. Rayu'Du' as his name suggests has lived up to the reputation and has delivered what was expected of him. A magnificent 💯 #INDvWI
