The second match ended in an exciting draw while the visitors outplayed India in the third ODI to claim their first victory of the tour.

This was also Dhoni's last ODI this year as he will next feature for the Men in Blue next year in the ODI series against Australia.

India skipper Virat Kohli lavished praise on his teammates after the hosts completed a comfortable 3-1 series win over Windies at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday. By the tenth ball of their innings, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, swinging it away from the left-hander, and Jasprit Bumrah, swinging it into the right-hander, had made Kieran Powell and Shai Hope pay for playing away from the body. While India was chasing 105 runs, they lost their first wicket as Shikhar Dhawan has to depart in the second over of the match. Kohli too was solid at the other end and his innings comprised six fours.

"To get runs as captain always gives me confidence".

That over-dependence on a couple of players has eventually cost them the series, as the dismissal of Hope in the 4th and 5th ODIs resulted in staggering collapses. This is the sixth time Kohli is lifting the trophy at home.
