India hold nerve to seal series 2-1

Cuttack: India beat West Indies by four wickets in the third and final One-day International to win the series 2-1 here on Sunday.

Sent into bat, West Indies scored 315 for five in the allotted 50 overs. India chased down the target with eight balls to spare.

Chasing 316 for victory in the third and final match of the ODI series, Rohit Sharma (63) and KL Rahul (77) got India off to the perfect start.

After Rohit fell, Virat Kohli joined Rahul. Kohli's highest score in Cuttack, in three matches played so far, was 22.

On Sunday, he looks to be in the mood to make amends. Shreyas Iyer (7) and Rishabh Pant (7) were dismissed without troubling the scorers much.
