Kieron Pollard century in Vain
The West Indian star batsman Pollard blistering knock of 119 off 110 balls still could not finish on winning note. At the end of the day the visitors were short of 34 runs in the final one day match at Chepauk Stadium. Even the pitch was not conducive for batting as the balls quite often kept low but Pollard still managed with his hard hitting stroke play and led the fight back. Overall he hit ten sixes. He along with Russell who nevertheless created panic with his huge hitting seemed to take away the match.
In India's innings, Manoj Tiwary scored a brilliant maiden hundred and held partnership with Koli who once again contributed 80 runs. Eventually, the series came to an end with India leading 4-1.
