India Clinch the ODI series against WI

India won the third match by Dhoni and the series by rain….. Though it is not like critcising the players it is true…. After the win in the first match against them by 20 runs, India lost the second match pretty badly by 8 wickets.. Indian batsmen struggled against the moving ball and the short pitched deliveries was well used by ravi rampaul a WI quickie and grabbed 4 quick wickets in no time… At 82/8 I thought India wont cross even 100 but Dhoni (captain) an RP Singh (BOWLER) shared 100 runs partnership between them and take India to a some respectable total… India all out for 184… West Indies reached the target in 35 overs itself… The chase was well started by gayle an morton… No bowlers of India are able to separate them till a part timer rohit came an take two quick wickets of gayle an sarwan to delay the inevitable win for them… But the main fact is that it is WI who got the upper hand going into the third an all important match of the series…. India won the toss in the third match and choose to bowl because of overcast conditions… India bowled pretty decently in the match to restrict the score 189 from 27 overs… The target was well chased by karthick and Gambhir… And for the first time in the series Gambhir looked in good nick and it is Karthick who scored the maximum runs in the powerplay… After several breaks due to rain India's target was 151 in 22 overs.. And it is Dhoni who launched the second ball of the last over to clinch the win for the match and the series……………. And it is acceptable that Dhoni won the man of the series...... Now it is going to be three months break for Team India before the champions trophy…. But the all important Ashes series is started today… SO ITS GETTING BETTER DAY BY DAY……
