India vs West Indies, Highlights, 3rd ODI at Pune, Full Cricket Score: Windies beat hosts by 43 runs to level series


21:51 (IST)

That's it from us in our coverage of the third one-dayer between India and West Indies, with the visitors pulling one back to level the five-match series. They were better both with bat and ball, and were the deserving winners in the end. India, will look to start afresh when they reach the other end of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, with the next game slated to take place at the Brabourne Stadium on Monday. 

Hope you enjoyed our coverage this evening. For now, we bid you all goodnight! 

21:51 (IST)

So, 1-1 it is and the series is well and truly on. The vulnerability in the Indian middle-order is exposed once again. Also, India have missed Jadeja today, both with bat and ball. He is definitely going to make a comeback in the XI in Mumbai on Monday. Both teams have everything to play for now and after this comprehensive victory by the Windies, I am sure the series will be followed more keenly by the fans.

21:50 (IST)

"It was my day and I played with a lot of free spirit. I needed to do something after Shai Hope got out because the score was not big," says Ashley Nurse, Man of the Match.

21:44 (IST)

Jason Holder, Windies skipper: Credit to the boys. I thought we played outstanding cricket. We did well to get to the 280-mark after struggling in the middle. We got new ball wickets, we hung in the game, that's very important. (On Ashley Nurse) He was outstanding. It's really good to see him come on his own. I know what I expect from Ashley. I don't think much is changing. I think the guys are learning a little bit better. I think consistency is something we need to pay a lot more attention to. 

21:42 (IST)

Virat Kohli: We bowled pretty well. The wicket wasn't doing much. From 227 for 8 we should have been chasing 250-260. 80 percent of bowling was fine. We did not get the partnerships going. This Windies side is an explosive side and they can beat any team on a given day. 

21:36 (IST)

Marlon Samuels: I have been mainly bowling in the nets as I am coming back from a knee injury. It was heartwarming to watch Shai Hope bat today. He's been growing from strength to strength. 

21:33 (IST)

Shai Hope: Yeah, my batting has become more consistent. We lost wickets at crucial stages so from there it was important to play a big innings. My preparation stays the same. Not much I change in the nets or anything.

21:23 (IST)

After 47.4 overs,India 240/10 ( Kuldeep Yadav 15 , )

Kuldeep denies singles off the first two deliveries. Sends the ball towards deep extra-cover off the third ball, realising there isn't a second on offer only when he's at the non-striker's end. Bumrah edges the ball to Holder at slip, as the Indian innings comes to an end. 

West Indies win by 43 runs! Level the five-match ODI series 1-1!

21:21 (IST)

OUT! West Indies win by 43 runs! Bumrah edges to the slips off Samuels' bowling, and he's the last man to fall. The visitors have been the far better side today, and they deservedly walk away with the win today! IND 240 all out

Bumrah c Holder b Samuels 0(3)

21:19 (IST)

After 47 overs,India 239/9 ( Kuldeep Yadav 14 , Jasprit Bumrah 0)

Skipper Holder returns to the attack with Windies looking to wrap this up quickly. Wide conceded off the fourth delivery, with Kuldeep guiding the ball down the ground for a single. Two off the over. Three overs left in the innings. Kuldeep and Bumrah need 45. 

21:15 (IST)

Jason Holder returns to the attack, with Jasprit Bumrah the new batsman at the crease right now. 

21:14 (IST)

After 46 overs,India 237/9 ( Kuldeep Yadav 13 , )

Kuldeep guides the ball towards third man for a boundary at the start of Samuels' third over. The all-rounder successfully appeals for lbw next ball while the batsman goes for a sweep. Kuldeep reviews, and Ultra-Edge shows a spike with the ball close to his glove, resulting in the decision getting overturned. Singles off the next three deliveries. Khaleel's stumped off the last ball of the over as India lose their ninth wicket. 

21:14 (IST)

OUT! Khaleel misses the ball completely after stepping out of his crease, and Hope removes the bails in a jiffy. Khaleel departs for 3, as India lose their ninth. IND 237/9

21:08 (IST)

After 45 overs,India 230/8 ( Kuldeep Yadav 7 , Khaleel Ahmed 2)

Kuldeep and Khaleel resort to rotating the strike between themselves, with five singles coming off Roach's final over. Perhaps the message to them is to bat out the remaining overs.

21:05 (IST)

After 44 overs,India 225/8 ( Kuldeep Yadav 4 , Khaleel Ahmed 0)

Samuels collects a maiden off his second over, with Khaleel barely able to connect. India need 59 off 36 right now — unless Kuldeep and Khaleel can produce a Nurse-Roach like cameo, the equation hardly matters. 

21:01 (IST)

After 43 overs,India 225/8 ( Kuldeep Yadav 4 , )

Mix-up between Kuldeep and Chahal off the second delivery nearly results in the latter's run out. Kuldeep pulls a short ball towards square-leg for a single off the third delivery. Chahal pulls towards midwicket, collecting a double on the occasion. He departs off the last ball, getting a thick top-edge that results in a catch for substitute fielder Keemo Paul at fine-leg. Three runs and a wicket off the over, as Windies inch closer to their first win of the tour. India need 59 off 42 with two wickets in hand. 

21:00 (IST)

OUT! Chahal gets a thick top-edge, with the ball flying towards fine-leg, where substitute fielder Keemo Paul taking a fine running catch! India sink further in this game. IND 225/8

Chahal c (sub) Paul b Roach 3(5)

20:56 (IST)

Kemar Roach brought back into the attack in the 43rd over. 

20:55 (IST)

After 42 overs,India 222/7 ( Kuldeep Yadav 3 , Yuzvendra Chahal 1)

Holder brings part-timer Samuels into the attack, and he inflicts the biggest blow yet on the Indians, knocking the Indian skipper's timbre over to send him back for 107. Chahal joins Kuldeep at the centre now, with Windies in control of the situation at the moment. India need 62 off 48. 

20:52 (IST)

BOWLED EM! Samuels nets the big fish! Kohli looks for an expansive slog, with the run-rate climbing steeply, and ends up getting his stumps disturbed! IND 220/7

Kohli b Samuels 107(119)

20:51 (IST)

Marlon Samuels brought into the attack. 

20:49 (IST)

Those extra runs conceded by the Indians in the death overs will now look real steep. 

20:49 (IST)

After 41 overs,India 218/6 ( Virat Kohli (C) 106 , Kuldeep Yadav 1)

McCoy returns to the attack, and puts Windies back in control by removing Bhuvneshwar off the first ball, as the Indian batting goes into its tail now. Kohli chips the ball down the ground, landing safely near long on. New batsman Kuldeep off the mark with a single off the first ball. Three off the over. 

20:45 (IST)

OUT! Bhuvneshwar finds the man at deep cover while looking for a big hit, as India lose their sixth wicket! Pressure on the hosts, especially on the skipper. IND 215/6

Bhuvneshwar c Powell b McCoy 10(17)

20:44 (IST)

Obed McCoy returns to the attack at the start of the final powerplay. 

20:44 (IST)

After 40 overs,India 215/5 ( Virat Kohli (C) 104 , Bhuvneshwar Kumar 10)

Bhuvneshwar slaps the ball down the ground to collect his first boundary. Gets a brace off the penultimate delivery, with the ball landing safely at fine leg. Takes a single off the last ball to keep the strike. Eight off the over. 

20:44 (IST)

Three back-to-back hundreds under three different circumstances - Virat Kohli is literally becoming a run-machine. Also, this is his fourth consecutive ODI century in India. How can someone achieve such consistency? Well, only Kohli knows the answer.

20:39 (IST)

FOUR! First boundary for Bhuvi, as he slaps a full delivery from Holder down the ground. IND 212/5

20:37 (IST)

After 39 overs,India 207/5 ( Virat Kohli (C) 103 , Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3)

Kohli goes right back to his primary focus — which is to get India over the line — after reaching a milestone. Three singles off the over. India need 77 off 66, with the required rate now touching the seven-run mark.

Kohli collects a single off the first ball to become the first Indian batsman to score three consecutive ODI tons — this also being his 38th in the format. Kohli doesn't really celebrate though; he has a job at hand at the moment. Three off the over. India need 80 off 72 balls. 

20:29 (IST)

CENTURY NO 38 for Virat Kohli! This man's unreal! Becomes the first Indian to score three consecutive centuries in ODI cricket! What a year he's having! Gets there with a single, taking 110 balls to reach the milestone. Barely any celebrations from the Indian skipper though, with India in a spot of bother at the moment. IND 202/5

20:28 (IST)

After 37 overs,India 201/5 ( Virat Kohli (C) 99 , Bhuvneshwar Kumar 1)

Kohli smacks the ball over Roach's head to collect his 10th boundary, and collects a single off the last ball to move to 99, while keeping the strike. 

20:27 (IST)

A timely breakthrough for Windies. M Dhoni's lean patch with bat continues. Now it is all depends on Virat Kohli. He has to score the bulk of the remaining runs from here on. Remember, today there is no Jadeja in the line-up so Bhuvi is perhaps batting one place higher up the order.

20:27 (IST)

FOUR! Straight over the bowler's head! No nervous 90s for Kohli it seems! IND 198/5

20:26 (IST)

After 36 overs,India 194/5 ( Virat Kohli (C) 93 , Bhuvneshwar Kumar 0)

Holder returns to the attack in the 36th over, and sees the back of former India skipper MS Dhoni, who gets caught-behind to depart for 7 as the stadium goes silent after the dismissal. India need 90 off 84. Bhuvneshwar Kumar walks out to bat now. 

20:21 (IST)

OUT! Dhoni perishes for 7, nicking one behind the stumps, as the MCA Stadium goes silent. Holder's ecstatic, as West Indies have a real sniff at victory right now. IND 194/5

Dhoni runs the ball down the ground for a single off the first ball. Kohli uses his wrists to good effect once agains three deliveries later, collecting his eighth boundary, and following it up with a single. Six off the over. 

Latest updates: West Indies win by 43 runs!

The third ODI between India and West Indies is being telecast on Star Sports 1 and 1 HD, Hindi 1 and Hindi 1 HD and Tamil 1. The India-West Indies live streaming will take place on Hotstar.

Preview, 3rd ODI: Handed a reality check after West Indies salvaged a morale-boosting tie in the second game, India will be hoping to put up an improved bowling show with their frontline pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah back in action for the third ODI at Pune on October 27.

A well-oiled India hammered the Windies in the lung opener in Guwahati by eight wickets, but the gritty visitors indeed, made a statement of sorts in Visakhapatnam, by denying the hosts a victory and a chance to go 2-0 ahead in the five-match rubber.

However the absence of Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah saw the Indian bowling unit being clobbered for 320 plus runs in both games.

With more variations in their repertoire in white ball cricket compared to the profligate Umesh Yadav and an inconsistent Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah are expected to make a significant difference, especially in the first Powerplay and the death overs.

India also have issues to ponder over with only 16 games are left before the World Cup in England next year -- the fragile middle-order and lack of consistency from the lower-middle order batsmen -- when they take field at the MCA International stadium.

India vs West Indies, Highlights, 3rd ODI at Pune, Full Cricket Score: Windies beat hosts by 43 runs to level series

India captain Virat Kohli and Windies captain Jason Holder. AFP

Skipper Virat Kohli, who surpassed iconic Sachin Tendulkar to score fastest 10,000 runs, has always been the backbone of the team. His back to back hundreds (140 and 157 not out) is just a testimony to it. The skipper, who has scored 297 runs so far in the series, will be aiming for a big knock again.

Ambati Rayadu's 73 consolidated his claim for No 4 spot and a good show in the next match, will only help him make the position his own.

But questions remain on a stable numbers 5, 6 and 7.

Veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni (20) again looked out of sorts in the second ODI and with his ability to finish innings on the wane, the stumper will be under immense pressure to perform.

A big score is expected from young Rishabh Pant, who has got the ability to go all guns blazing. The team management is expected to persist with him for his game-changing ability.

The dew is a big factor during day-night matches in India, something that will worry Kohli since both his wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal were finding it difficult to grip the wet ball.

Senior spinner Ravindra Jadeja will have to pull up his socks and can't afford to be inconsistent with only a few places up for grabs going into the World Cup.

For the visitors, their biggest asset is young Shimron Hetmyer, who scored a scintillating 94 in the last game after an attractive 106 in the opening encounter.

The 21-year-old southpaw would be raring to go at the Indian bowlers once again.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Shai Hope with his hundred in Visakhapatnam has proved that there is more to his game than the attractive 30's.

But apart from these two, West Indies would be hoping that the others like Kieron Powell, Chanderpaul Hemraj and Rovman Powell step up and deliver.

Their senior pros like experienced Marlon Samuels (13 runs) and skipper Jason Holder (50 runs) haven't really played to their potential. The duo will look to make amends.

The bowling attack will be spearheaded by Kemar Roach but he has been leaking runs along with their spinners Devendra Bishoo and Ashley Nurse.

The trio, along with the others including Holder and Oshane Thomas will need to come up with something special to restrict a ruthless Indian skipper and the others, who can hammer any bowling attack.


India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey.

West Indies: Jason Holder (Captain), Fabian Allen, Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Oshane Thomas.
