India captain Virat Kohli has again staked his claim for the mantle as the world's leading white-ball batsman after drawing ever closer to the two most prolific one-day worldwide century-makers of all-time, Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting.
Virat Kohli scored a record 18th century in chases as India overhauled the target of 206 with 79 balls to spare.
Asked if he had any special formula when chasing a score, Kohli played down his efforts. This is India third successive series triumph in the Caribbean on the trot. Available on Android and IOS.
India is set to take on West Indies in the final ODI of the series and India needs to win the match to ensure that India wins the series.
The 28-year old is now two hundreds short of equalling Ricky Ponting's tally of 30 ODI tons.
India will face West Indies in a one-off T20I at the same venue on Sunday. Young batsman Ajinkya Rahane was rewarded with "Player Of The Series" title for his excellent performance throughout the series of ODI matches.
Kohli, who had a quiet series to his standards before this match, came out with intent and was positive right from the word go.
Responding to the home side's modest total of 205 for nine after captain Jason Holder chose to bat first in Jamaica, the visitors' skipper ensured that his team will get over the line easily in the 37th over to give India a 3-1 series triumph.
Virat Kohli has failed to produce in the last two matches, with scores 3 and 11 not looking good for the visitors. Skipper Virat Kohli's captain's knock of 111 runs off 115 and Dinesh Karthik's 50 of 52 helped India take the game home and conquer the series by 3-1. He slammed a record 15th ODI century in successful chases and surpassed Tendulkar's previous record of 14 tons, which transformed into a win. It was more of on being strict on myself and then getting the team across the line, which I knew the victory was inevitable when I got the hundred.
