Bhuvi, Bumrah back for final 3 ODI’s against West Indies

Bhuvi, Bumrah back for final 3 ODI’s against West Indies

Shami, who is one of India's pace mainstays in the longer format, hasn't had a good outing in the first two matches as he gave away 140 runs and picked just three wickets. Kohli then added 139 runs for the third wicket with no.4 Ambati Rayudu who scored a brilliant 73 in 80 balls.

The 35-year-old Bravo, who is not a part of the team which is now engaged in a series in India, played 40 Tests, 164 ODIs and 66 T20Is since making his debut back in 2004.

Shai Hope's unbeaten century salvaged a confidence-boosting tie for the West Indies in the thrilling second ODI against India at Visakhapatnam, but the wicket-keeper batsman said the visitors need to put up more consistent performances as a team in the remainder of the series. An elated Kohli also said that he never thought of reaching the landmark and his only focus was to contribute for the team.

On Wednesday, Kohli became the 13th batsman to reach the milestone with an unbeaten 157 off 129 balls, which was his 37th ODI hundred. Kohli overtook his predecessor MS Dhoni as he surpassed him to become India's fourth highest run-scorer in one-day internationals.

"However, I must accept that for me to preserve my longevity as a professional cricketer, I must do as others before have done, leave the global arena for the next generation of players", he said.

The 33-year-old, who amassed more than 600 runs for 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Chennai Super Kings, however, was dropped from the ODI squad headed for England earlier this year for failing the mandatory yo-yo test.

The West Indies spinners, especially senior pro Devendra Bishoo, could not deliver on a pitch that offered turn and played slow.

Shai Hope was the flawless foil for the marauding Hetmyer, as the former kept rotating strikes while finding the fence on a fairly regular basis.

West Indies skipper Jason Holder said his runout and the fall of Shimron Hetmyer were the turning points of the match.

India have defeated West Indies in the preceding Test series 2-0.
