After dominating the T20I series, India will look to continue their form in the 3-match ODI series starting on Thursday. This series, in all likelihood, will be the farewell ODI series of Chris Gayle who could be seen retiring as the Windies’ most capped and highest run-getter in this format. India’s mission to find a No.4 and a stable middle-order continues following their semi-final exit in the World Cup. Windies, however, have a similar squad that represented them in the mega event.
All the key stats and numbers ahead of the 3-match ODI series between Windies and India:
2 – Windies won as few as two of their last 14 ODIs against India. India won ten of those last 13 ODIs while one game each ended in a Tie and washout.
8 – India has won each of their last 8 bilateral ODI series against the Windies. This includes three series wins for India in the Caribbean Islands. Windies won the 2006 home series by a 4-1 margin against the Indians but never won since then.
61.85 – Rohit Sharma has a batting average of 61.85 in ODI cricket against the Windies. Among the players who have batted in 25 ODI innings against the Windes, only Rohit and Virat Kohli (70.81) average more than 60.
79 – Rohit has got an average of 79 with the bat in ODIs since 2011 in the Caribbean Islands. The Indian opener has scored 474 runs from ten innings in this span with the help of five half-centuries in the West Indies.
93 – Number of wickets Kuldeep Yadav has bagged in ODI cricket thus far. The left-arm wrist-spinner needs seven wickets from the next three ODIs he plays to become the quickest Indian to 100 ODI wickets.
298 – Chris Gayle needs to feature in two more ODIs to become the first player from the Windies to complete 300 ODI appearances. Brian Lara retired with 299 ODI caps to his name.
At the moment, Gayle is tied with Lara in the list of most ODIs for the Windies. Both the left-handers featured in 295 ODIs for the West Indian team.
1912 – Virat Kohli needs 88 more runs to become the first player to amass 2000 ODI runs against the Windies. If the Indian skipper gets those 88 runs in the next three innings, he will be the fastest player to 2000 ODI runs against an opponent. Kohli will break the record held by his deputy Rohit Sharma who scored 2000 ODI runs against the Aussies in 37 innings.
10338 – Chris Gayle, at 10338 runs, requires 11 runs for becoming the highest run-getter for the Windies in ODI cricket. He will thus surpass Brian Lara’s tally of 10348 runs. Gayle, in fact, needs 13 more runs to go past Lara’s ODI tally which includes 57 runs in four ODIs for World XI. Gayle also scored 55 runs for the World XI across three games.
