Stats: A Series to Forget for Dhawan and Samuels

The fifth and final ODI between India and West Indies in Thiruvananthapuram was meant to be a day-night affair on Thursday (Nov 01). However, courtesy an awful show with the bat from Windies, the match got completed even without the sun going down! India thrashed West Indies by a margin of 9 wickets to win the 5th ODI as well as the 5-match series 3-1. The 2nd ODI of the series in Vizag resulted in a tie.

Here are some of the statistical highlights of the fifth ODI between India and West Indies:

104 – West Indies team total in the fifth ODI against India. Only three of their batsmen in this game reached to double figures with Jason Holder’s 25 being the highest.

211 – The margin (by deliveries remaining in the innings) by which India defeated West Indies in the fifth ODI in Thiruvananthapuram. This is their second best win in this format of the game after the victory against Kenya by 231 deliveries remaining in Bloemfontein in the year 2001.


99 – The wicket of Kieran Powell in the fifth ODI is the 99th wicket for Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar in this format of the game. He bowled just four overs in the fifth ODI in which he conceded 11 runs and picked up a wicket. Bhuvi now has to wait till January next year to join the 100-wicket club in ODIs!
