India 416 & 168-4

West Indies 117 & 210

With the pitch not offering much to the bowlers, Darren Bravo and Shamarh Brooks started well on day 4 for West Indies. Both looked assured of themselves and left the ball well. However, after Darren Bravo creamed a cover drive for four, he felt symptoms of delayed concussion and left the field.

Roston Chase and Shimron Hetmyer then fell in quick succession. Jermaine Blackwood was named the like-for-like concussion replacement for Darren Bravo and looked good for his 72-ball 38. However, despite getting a life off a no-ball, he could not cash in.

Jason Holder was the only lower-middle order batsman who could last some time on the crease. Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja took three wickets apiece to clean up the West Indies' tail and register a memorable series win.
