India has been having a really good run of wins at the Cricket World Cup 2015. This time, the Indian side has beaten the West Indies. India beat the West Indies with a four-wicket win, taking the team through to the quarter-finals.
The final result of the match ended with India at 185 – 6, and the West Indies with 182 all out. Dhoni ended the match on 45 not out. Although India got the desired result, the team could have made it easier. The West Indies team had ended with a result that was well below par, which gave India a good chance of making it.
India has achieved exceptional results with wins in four out of four matches in Pool B. The team has ended up with 8 points, and could be on its way to a win in this year’s World Cup.
When MS Dhoni, the India Captain, was asked about the match, he said: “It was a difficult wicket, with movement and bounce early on. There was a bit of swing for their fast bowlers but I don’t think it misbehaved as much as it did in the first 10 overs of the first innings. Our bowlers stuck tot their line and lengths. A lot of batsmen got out to short-pitched balls.”
Dhoni further noted that he was “very happy” with the India team’s performance in the match. He said: “It is always a difficult target. You don’t really know whether you want to go and play your big shots. Our lower middle order has not really been tested. Jadeja will have to step up, because it is a very important slot and if he can contribute more we will be a very solid batting line-up.”
The team is looking ahead toward the quarter-finals, with the players likely to maintain their focus after the positive results throughout.
