5th ODI - India vs West Indies - Chennai, Dec 11
India win despite Pollard century [IND-WIN:4-1(5/5)]
Dec 11, 2011
A blistering maiden century by Pollard (110-ball knock of 119, with 10 sixes) couldn't help West Indies as they fell 34 runs short of India's score of 267/6. Irfan Pathan caused plenty of excitement with his famous inswingers and took 2-42, including a wicket of the very first delivery on his return. The West Indies had slumped to 78 for five before an 89-run stand between Pollard and Russell brought them back into the match.
The hosts, who won the toss for the fifth consecutive time in this series, lost two quick wickets in the first three balls, but a maiden century by Manoj Tiwary on a sweltering day in Chennai helped India's cause. Tiwary retired hurt with cramp after a 117-run partnership with Kohli (80) who became the highest ODI run-scorer in 2011. Out of 34 matches he played this year, Kohli has scored 1381 runs at an average of 47.62 from 34 ODIs. This phenomenal achievement includes 4 centuries and 8 half-tons. Virender Sehwag, R Ashwin and Vinay Kumar made way for Irfan Pathan, Ajinkya Rahane and Manoj Tiwary.
India's home season has featured only two losses out of 14 matches. Rohit Sharma, who scored 305 (including three fifties) at an average of 76.25, was named man-of-the-series and Manoj Tiwary the man-of-the-match for his 104. Ravindra Jadeja (9 at 23.77) and Kemar Roach (9 at 30.44) are the top wicket-takers in the series.
