Kohli’s third straight ton goes in vain


Oct 29, 2018-

India captain Virat Kohli struck his third consecutive hundred but it was not enough as West Indies defeated the hosts by 43 runs in the third one-day international (ODI) on Saturday to square the five-match series at 1-1. Milestone man Kohli, who became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 ODI runs during Wednesday’s tied match at Visakhapatnam, compiled 107 to bring up his 38th century in the format but his dismissal ended India’s hopes of chasing down 284 for victory. Part-time off-spinner Marlon Samuels emerged as wrecker-in-chief for the Caribbean side, picking up his best ODI bowling figures of 3-12 as India were all out for 240 in the 48th over. (REUTERS)
