India clinched the three-match ODI series against West Indies 2-1 after winning a nerve-wracking encounter in Cuttack by 4 wickets.


Chasing 316 to win, India suffered a mini-collapse in the latter part of their innings before useful knocks from Shardul Thakur (17* off 6 balls) and Ravindra Jadeja (39* off 31 balls) ensured they reach the finish line with 9 balls to spare.

Brief scores:


India 316/6 in 48.4 overs (Virat Kohli 85, KL Rahul 77, Rohit Sharma 63; Keemo Paul 3/59) beat
West Indies 315/5 in 50 overs (Pooran 89, Pollard 74 not out; Saini 2/52) by 4 wickets.
