India whitewash West Indies in ODIs at their home ground for the first time ever

After 2 nail-biting matches, it was a cakewalk for India to win the 3rd ODI against West Indies in Port of Spain on Wednesday. India opted to bat first and made 225/3 in 36 overs. However, with the rain encounter, the match was paused.

Following the DLS method, West Indies had to chase 257 in 35 overs. However, WI could only manage 137 as India won the contest by 119 runs.
