Captain Virat Kohli top-scored with a knock of 85 as India clinched the three-match ODI series against the West Indies in Cuttack on Sunday.
The Men in Blue chased down the 316-run target with eight balls to spare.
Apart from Kohli, KL Rahul (77) and Rohit Sharma (63) also scored half-centuries to help India beat the West Indies by four wickets. The Men in Maroon dismissed Kohli in the 47th over, but Ravindra Jadeja remained unbeaten on 39 to help the hosts cross the finish line in a tense finish in the series decider.
Earlier, West Indies rode on Nicholas Pooran’s 64-ball 89 and skipper Kieron Pollard’s 51-ball 74* to post 315/5 on the board.
Team India players were pretty thrilled and proud after the series victory. They took to micro-blogging site Twitter to rejoice their success.

What a way to finish the year. I’ll take most of that year what we did as a team and personally too. Thankful to all fans of the game for getting behind the team and supporting. Now time to get ready for the next set of duties 😁
