Well, it's game over tonight and we'll be signing off here at In.com. We hope you enjoyed our updates as much as we enjoyed the match (hopefully more!). Do stay tuned to us for the next match on October 24. Thanks and goodbye!
PS: Here's a little stat on Virat:
Virat Kohli has scored 36 ODI hundreds in 204 innings - a rate of a hundred every 5.66 innings. If he was to play as many ODI innings as Sachin Tendulkar (452) & score hundreds at his current rate he would finish with 80 ODI hundreds - 31 more than Tendulkar. #INDvWI— The Cricket Prof. (@CricProf) October 21, 2018

It was a clinical performance if there ever was one! Over 600 runs have been scored today courtesy of some tremendous batting by both teams. West Indies' Shimron Hetmyer scared us with his 106. A 300+ target is always difficult to chase down and not to mention psychologically damning. Yet our boys made a mockery of the target. It was a Virat Kohli - Rohit Sharma exhibition tonight as India beat West Indies by eight wickets.

VICTORY! 150! What an unbelievable performance by Team India! Sharma slams the ball hard for a six, taking him to 152* and also scoring the winning runs! That's called finishing it with swag. Way to go Hitman!

Rayudu will have a lot on his mind. He's up on the fourth position (yes, we're repeating it). Let's take a look at what convinced King Kohli to award him the spot. The new no. four has played 41 matches and has over 1,200 runs to his name. He's also got eight 50s and two 100s with a strike rate of 76.8. It is not hard to find replacements for a player if you're on the Indian team. We've got plenty of talent. And Rayudu knows that :)
