India rout West Indies by 224 runs in Mumbai ODI


The victor of this match will ensure they don't lose this series after West Indies tied the series 1-1 in Pune.

The teams will be staying at the city's premier hotel, the Leela Kovalam.

ODI cricket returns to city after a span of 30 years and incidentally the last match also involved West Indies.

At 77 for seven in the 19th over, the West Indies were staring at one of their lowest totals in five years and potentially their ninth total under 100, but Holder's unbeaten 54 helped his team escape that particular humiliation.

Rare 5,655 carat Emerald discovered in Zambia
It was spotted on October 2 in the eastern part of the Kagem mine, where a team of miners has found luck in the past few months. For years, Gemfields had a pineapple-sized emerald locked in a safe as it didn't know how much it was worth.

Cricket in the city found a new home when the Kerala Cricket Association chose to lease the multipurpose Greenfield Stadium till 2027. This is also the third biggest win of team India in ODIs, the biggest margin win of team India is against Bermuda in 2007 as India won the match by 257 runs. That about summed up West Indies' pathetic performance in Mumbai today where they suffered a record 224-run walloping, as India registered their largest-ever victory over a Test-playing nation in the fourth One-Day International.

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, K Khaleel Ahmed, Jasprit Bumrah. The duo took centre stage after a rare failure by skipper Virat Kohli.

Chasing 378, West Indies simply caved in against India's clinical bowling attack on what was a batting-friendly wicket to be bundled out for a paltry 153 in 36.2 overs.

Earlier, Rohit belted an explosive 137-ball 162, laced with 20 boundaries and four sixes, but importantly crucial from the team's point of view, forged a 211-run third wicket stand with the other centurion Rayudu (100 off 81 balls; 4X8, 6X4) to propel the hosts to a mammoth 377/5.
