India’s 2-1 win in the series in December is the 3rd successive win for them in bilateral series against the West Indies. India had won 3-1 at home in 2018-19 and 2-0 away in 2019 before this.
The overall results:
India now have a slender 64-63 lead overall and similarly 29-28 at home. They also lead 19-15 at neutral venues and trail WI 16-20 in away matches.
We now look at individual performances:
Most runs (750 and above):
Kohli has now scored far more runs than anyone else, including present players such as RG Sharma and CH Gayle.
Kohli also has the most centuries (9) and 50+ scores (20).
Highest innings (110 and above):
During this series high scores were recorded by RG Sharma (159) and SO Hetmyer (139).
Highest batting averages (Min 20 innings, all instances):
Again, Kohli is far ahead of anyone else starting with his team-mate RG Sharma. We see that Srikkanth, Kapil and Shastri have lower averages than we may expect.
Highest batting strike rates (Min 500 balls, 60.00)
Headed by Sehwag, Viv Richards and Kohli. Other current players near the top are Dhoni and Dhawan.
