Commentary

That will be it from us, folks. Join us for the fourth ODI on Monday at 9 am local time, till then this is Abhishek Purohit signing off, on behalf of George Binoy who brought you the first innings. Have a look at Sid Monga's bulletin here. Cheers.

Andre Russell is Man of the Match. Russell: "We wanted to be positive for this game as it was very important. I am working hard on my bowling, I am going to consider myself as a bowling allrounder. When I retire from international cricket, I want to be called a legend. I want to stay here and contribute as much as I can."

Suresh Raina: "Russell played well, he played amazing shots. Credit goes to Mishra for bowling well. We have the Tests coming up, these tracks are helpful for leggies, he has been among the wickets in the IPL and against South Africa as well. I played a bad shot, but Rohit and Harbhajan batted really well. We have a couple of guys sitting on the bench, and I hope everyone gets a chance in the last two games. God has been kind to all the boys, we had a quality meeting with the coach as we did not have much time after the IPL."

Darren Sammy: "It is a game that got away from us. Russell brought us back along with Baugh. guys were confident during lunch, but we lacked the killer instinct after taking early wickets. We have not been getting runs at the top, we just lacked the finishing touch. Kemar is one of our strike bowlers, we needed a bit extra from him, but I can't fault anyone, he has been doing a good job over the past months. If you put the ball in the right areas, you could reap rewards on this wicket."

Superb knock from Rohit Sharma as he picks up a stump as a souvenir. He has been talked up by almost everyone, and is now starting to fulfill the enormous promise. Harbhajan Singh, he has his own methods, but he also has loads of fight. Which is what Andre Russell showed as well, with a blazing unbeaten 92, but it did not prove to be enough.

India needed 134 when Yusuf Pathan fell, with only four wickets to go. Even more remarkable than India's win is the ease with which the West Indies attack fell apart, epitomised by Kemar Roach spraying the ball around

Arnie sums up the game: "What similarity in the 2 scorecards... one of the opener getting to 40s, one batsmen getting over 80 and one lower order batsman supporting with a score around 30-40."

Krish: "A coming of age innings from Rohit, but not to forget the performance from the tail. With Ashwin knocking down the door for the off spinners spot, Harbajan is seriously added batting to the column of his strengths. And of course, pressure easing quick fire cameo from PK. Most satisfying victory from the second string Indian team."
