With the present series concluding on July 6, 2017, India’s 3-1 victory meant that the West Indies had not won a bilateral series against India since 2006. West Indies had won that series 4-1 at home. The last time they won a bilateral series against India in India was a generation ago in 1987-88, with a 6-1 margin. That was a 7-match series along with a separate ODI for a benefit, which the unwary may consider as an 8-match series.
The results of all ODIs between these teams are summarized here (cancelled and abandoned matches are not counted):
West Indies still lead 61-56 overall and 20-14 at home, besides 26-24 in India. Only on neutral grounds does India lead at 18-15.
Starting with batting records:
Most runs (750 and above):
While Tendulkar leads, Kohli is now in second place. His century in the final match enabled him to leapfrog over the totals of some older prominent players. Yuvraj, Dhoni and none of the current WI players can also be seen here.
Kohli, Tendulkar and Gayle have scored 4 centuries each. For 50+ scores, Tendulkar leads with 15 followed by Kohli with 13 with Chanderpaul and Sarwan level on 12.
Highest innings (110 and above):
While Sehwag has by far the highest score of 219, only Kohli with 111* is here from the current series.
Batting averages (minimum 20 innings, all instances):
Kohli and Dhoni lead this table, with Yuvraj further down. Greenidge leads for the West Indies, closely followed by Sarwan.
Strike rate (minimum 20 innings, all instances):
Sehwag leads here, closely followed by Richards. Kohli and Dhoni are close behind, while M Amarnath and Shastri are unsurprisingly at the bottom for all those who batted for at least 20 innings.
To be continued.
