Rohit Sharma was named the Man of the Series for the three-match ODI series between India and West Indies for his 258 runs which came at a striking average of 86.

Sharma scored at a strike rate of over 100, including 34 fours and 6 sixes in the series to cap off his brilliant run in international cricket throughout 2019. This included five centuries in the ODI World Cup.

"Extremely grateful for the year I had, the World Cup win would have been nice. The team gelled together collectively well and every individual stepped up which is a good sign. There is no way I'm stopping here and there's an exciting year coming up and I'm looking forward to it," Sharma said after receiving the Man of the Series award.

His most impressive knock of the series came in the 2nd ODI at Vizag where he smoked 159 runs to help India reach a mammoth total of 387 and turn around the series after losing the first match.

Prior to that, he was instrumental in India's victory in the final T20I with a 34-ball 71 and has now settled down as India's frontliner in all three formats of the game.

Sharma's opening partnership with KL Rahul has also been a huge relief for India, in the absence of Shikhar Dhawan.
