Virat Kohli‘s 42nd ODI ton, Shreyas Iyer‘s half-century from No. 5 and Bhuvneshwar Kumar‘s fours wickets emerged the biggest takeaways in India’s strong 59-run (DLS) win over West Indies in Trinidad.

Kohli’s first ODI century in 12 innings, during which he was partnered by Iyer in a stand of 125, formed the crux of India’s 279/7. It was a total India would have wanted to stretch by another 15-20 runs. But it didn’t matter for Bhuvneshwar’s three-wicket burst in his second spell turned the game on its head. Nicholas Pooran and Roston Chase kept West Indies in with a chance even though they had to keep up with the asking rate. But in a matter of three balls, Bhuvneshwar swung the game in India’s favour, removing both batsmen which was followed by a lower-order collapse which saw them lose seven wickets for 62 runs.
