Cricket News sort by West Indies tour of India 2013

After being thrashed in the Test matches, the West Indians, and even the Indian fans for that matter, would have hoped for a better contest in the one-dayers.

West Indies’ insipid performance on their tour of India continued in the ODI Series as well. The visitors got a sound trashing by the defending World Champions who smashed the West Indian target of 212 with 88 balls to spare!

For India, the Test series was all about giving a fitting farewell to Sachin Tendulkar, and they successfully did the same.

It took just a little over two hours for India to wipe out West Indies on Day 3 to wrap up an innings victory in the Mumbai Test. Sachin Tendulkar’s last day in International Cricket came to a quick end with the West Indians surrendering their remaining 7 wickets in a hurry.

West Indies slipped to a sorry 43 for 3 by stumps in just 12.2 overs. The writing is on the wall for a second consecutive innings defeat inside three days for the tourists. Windies have a long way to go make India bat again with a huge deficit of 270 runs to clear.

The crowd at Wankhede was in for a big disappointment in the morning when MS Dhoni had won the toss and opted to bowl first as the expectation was that Tendulkar wouldn’t get to bat on Day 1.
