The big hitter misses
It was a slow pitch, but should a target of 190 troubled a batsman of the calibre of MS Dhoni, one of history's coolest chasers? But, as has been the case sometimes since 2014, he struggled to find his timing, and was outsmarted by rookie bowlers tying him down with changes of pace. Dhoni made 54 off 114 balls - the slowest fifty by an Indian batsman since 2001. India lost by 11 runs.
This series might not be very significant, but West Indies bowlers might have given clues for other teams to build on: Virat Kohli doesn't like it up there, especially on slower pitches. Kohli has batted four times, and West Indies have given him a fair share of bouncers when he is just in, and Kohli has struggled initially before becoming comfortable. On Sunday, he didn't look at ease at all, and eventually perished to the short ball.
If there is one thing that defines Jason Holder, it is that he is a big-hearted trier. Despite a history of leaking runs towards the end of an innings, he continued to front up to one of the toughest jobs in cricket and on Sunday he got his just rewards. A match-winning maiden five-for that included two scorching yorkers.
Learning new tricks
Hardik Pandya has shown in his brief career that he relies heavily on the short ball, but he showed another side to his bowling in Antigua. He got Shai Hope with a bouncer in the last match, and gave him a few short balls in this one too, but then floated that sucker ball outside off. Hope was caught on the back foot, and edged him through.
Déjà vu all over again
Three innings in, West Indies are still not picking the left-arm spin of Kuldeep Yadav. A mere five balls into the contest, opener Evin Lewis ended up repeating his dismissal from the second ODI. He was stumped off a wrong 'un then; today he lobbed it off the inside half of the bat to short midwicket. Roston Chase went one step ahead and produced an identical replay of his dismissal in the third ODI: beaten on the outside edge when looking to work to leg.
