Team India pulled off a stunning run-chase against West Indies at the Barabati Stadium to pocket the three-match series 2-1. India’s second-innings effort was fuelled by Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. Each of the top three batsmen slammed half-centuries. Amidst the blazing knocks by the top-order, the ‘Men in Blue’ also found unlikely heroes in the form of Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur. The two batsmen played their part in the run-chase by forming a match-winning alliance in the end.
