Hi,im going to review the  3rd ODI match between India vs WestIndies played at the Gros Islet,St.Lucia.

Indian captain MS Dhoni won the toss once again,and this time he has decided to bowl first,because of the climate conditions.The weather predictions seems to be Rainy and as correctly the WestIndies innings was disrupted by Three rain stoppages which surely disturb the momentum of the West Indies.The match was actually reduced from 50 to 41 overs ,and then to 39 and finally reduced to 27 overs.Gayle and Morton played very well and they looked good until the first stoppage happens.Gayle scored 27 until then with 6 boundaries out of which Ishant gave 5 of those.After the rain break Gayle got out to Nehra for the same score from 14 balls,and then momentum was slightly shifted to India.Sarwan played with flair and ease and scored good 62 runs which helped West Indies to put a decent total of 186-7 in 27 overs ,where all the others have chipped in with 15’s and 20’s.

India started well where openers Karthik and Gambhir played positively by playing some good shots and they also they rotated the strike beautifully. Karthik got out for 47 while trying to a single which was not there.Dhoni came at one down and started rotating the strike.Once agin Rain interrupted and target for India has been revised to 159 from 22 overs.

India lose 2 quick wickets of Gambhir and Yuvraj and the momentum was in the balance till the penultimate over ,where Bravo given only 5 runs and took the wicket of Rohit Sharma,by then India need 11 runs from 1 over.But Dhoni played a pressure shot in the second ball of the last over bowled by Jerome taylor for a six.He picked up the slow ball of Taylor and deposited into the crowd.Now India need 4 from 4 with 6 wickets in  hand.Then in the next ball Bravo misfields at long on and give an extra run,and now India needs 2 runs from 3 balls.Yusuf hits the single in the penultimate ball of the innings and India won the match and leads the series by 2-1.Dhoni played a captain’s knock of 46 from 34 balls and won the man of the match award.
