Cricket News: India thrash West Indies in 5th ODI, clinch series 3-1

India thrashed the West Indies by nine wickets in the fifth and final One-Day International to clinch the series 3-1. India had won the first and fourth matches. The second match ended in an exciting draw while the visitors outplayed India in the third ODI to claim their first and only victory of the tour. India played brilliantly in this match as both bowlers and batsmen did their job. First the bowlers restricted the visitors to a paltry 104 then the top-order batsmen played handsomely to wrap up the issue in just 15 overs. Chasing 105, India lost Shikhar Dhawan (6) in the second over. Pacer Oshane Thomas clean bowled the Delhi batsman with just six runs on the board. Unperturbed by the fall of Dhawan's wicket, Rohit Sharma (63 not out) and skipper Virat Kohli (33 not out) played sensibly and guided India to a comfortable victory. Rohit also completed his 37th half-century. Rohit slammed five boundaries and four sixes in his 56-ball innings while Kohli played 29 balls and hammered six boundaries. Earlier, a brilliant bowling effort saw India bundle out West Indies for 104.
