Kingston - India captain Virat Kohli says he is really pleased after
his team beat the West Indies by eight wickets in the fifth and final ODI in
Jamaica to clinch a 3-1 series victory.
Chasing a target of 206, the Asian side easily knocked off
their target with more than 13 overs to spare with Kohli himself scoring an
unbeaten 111 while Dinesh Karthik contributed 50 not out.
The India skipper paid tribute to his opening batsman
Ajinkya Rahane, who claimed the man of the series award, after he scored 336
runs over the course of the five matches.
Kohli said after the game: "First and foremost the aim
was to win the series, have a complete team performance. Special mention to
Rahane, who's comeback after a while and he was outstanding. Shikhar Dhawan as
well at the top.
"Really pleased with the team effort in general."
It was also Kohli's 28th century in ODIs, but more
impressively it was his 18th ton in a run-chase that takes him past Sachin
Tendulkar for the most hundreds while chasing a target.
Asked if he had any special formula when chasing a score,
Kohli played down his efforts.
He said: "Winning convincingly in a chase is always
nice. For me it's all about getting the team across the line.
"It's not about stats - it's about looking at the
scoreboard, looking at the bowlers, which ones to target, which ones to give
respect to. I like taking control of the situation, stringing
India and the West Indies round off the tour with a one-off
T20I in Jamaica on Sunday.
