Virat Kohli & co. have had a near perfect tour to West Indies so far. The men in blue cleansweeped the three-match T20I series, after which they went on to win the 2nd and 3rd ODI, to seal the limited-overs series. The first ODI of the three-match series was washed out, which means that the side has not lost a single game so far in the tour.

After winning the 3rd ODI against West Indies and sealing the series 2-0, Indian cricket stars have a few days break before the start of the Test series. Several of the Indian cricket stars, including vice-captain Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan were spotted at a dinner party hosted by legendary West Indies batsman Brian Lara at his home.


In photos uploaded by retired Windies allrounder Dwayne Bravo on his official Instagram account, Dhawan, Sharma, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav and Yuzvendra Chahal, made an appearance.

Classy Virat Kohli upstaged rampant Chris Gayle as India defeated the West Indies by six wickets in the rain-affected third and final One-Day International of their series at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad on Wednesday. Set a revised target of 255 based on the DLS scoring method after Gayle blazed 72 in pacing the home side to 240 for seven off 35 overs, Kohli was at his most imperious in compiling an unbeaten 114 -- his second consecutive ODI hundred -- to pilot his team to 256 for four with 15 balls to spare.
