West Indies of the Test is a far cry from West Indies of the ODI. They resemble two contrasting units. They surrendered meekly in Rajkot and Hyderabad Tests. But have made a resounding comeback in Vizag and Pune ODIs. Jason Holder’s men have truly given India a run for their money. The five-match series currently level at 1-1 and is nicely poised. So much was the impact West Indies left on India that they were forced to recall their top-pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar who were rested for the first two matches.

Credit to West Indies for hanging in there. Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer have emerged as the two bankable options, and skipper Jason Holder has played the supportive role successfully with the bat. But most importantly, it s their lower order that has bailed West Indies out of trouble in all three games. The only area they need to improve upon is their top order. The bowling too has shown strong character to bounce back from the beating taken in Guwahati and Vizag.
