- #West Indies beat India by 43 runs in Pune ODI.

Pune: Indian captain #Virat Kohli, after losing in the third ODI against the West Indies, admitted the lack of an all-rounder in the team. “We felt a lack of an all-rounder in this match, and Kedar Jadhav will be joining the team in the fourth ODI. We are confident that his coming will be well balanced by the team.” Even after Kohli’s century in this match, India had to face defeat by 43 runs.
Windies a dangerous team: Kohli: Kohli said, “When Hardik Pandya and Kedar play together, we would have got an extra option. It is difficult to make a balance when a player like Hardik does not play, they prove to be useful for the team in both batting and bowling departments.”
Kohli blamed the bowlers for reaching 283 runs after eight wickets in 227 on the West Indies. He said, “We bowled well in the beginning, after 35 overs, it was difficult for the batsmen to bat, so it was a difficult challenge to pursue the target of more than 250. They bowled poorly in the last 10 overs.”
He said, “However, such a goal could have been achieved, but we did not make a partnership, we can not implement our plans properly, the West Indies is a dangerous team and they can defeat anyone.”
Kohli made 107 runs in this match, Kohli made the century in three consecutive ODIs, becoming the world’s 10th and the first batsman of India. Regarding his innings, he said, “I do not want to talk about my batting.”
