New Delhi: Even as the Indian cricketers are sweating it out in the West Indies, opener Rohit Sharma is having fun, after being rested for the on-going limited-overs series. Having opened for India in the Champions Trophy, Rohit was rested for the West Indies series as he is returning from an injury-induced break.

Taking to Instagram, Rohit posted a picture which read: “Green tea and blue waters 😍.”

While the opener is having a ball, the same cannot be said of his teammates as they lost the fourth ODI to West Indies by 11 runs. Skipper Virat Kohli has questioned some of the shot selection by the Indian batsmen after West Indies edged out India by 11 runs in the fourth ODI at Antigua on Sunday. With this victory, the hosts have kept the series alive as a win in the last ODI for them will level the five match series (first ODI was washed out).

Indian bowlers once again produced a stunning performance and restricted West Indies for a modest 189/9 in their designated 50 overs. But it was their batting, which failed to shine on the day and couldn't get India over the line. Skipper Kohli lauded the India bowlers for their show but at the same time expressed his displeasure regarding the way batsmen gave away their wickets.

"We bowled really well to restrict them to 189," Kohli said after the match. "Our shot selection wasn’t up to the mark, losing crucial wickets at crucial stages. You’ve got to keep up the momentum through the game. Credit to the West Indies bowlers, they created those dot balls that induced those mistakes," the India skipper said.

Kohli also praised West Indies skipper Jason Holder, who finished the innings with a five wicket hauld and played a pivotal role in making the series 1-2. "Credit to the West Indies bowlers, they created those dot balls that induced those mistakes. We faltered with the bat and that can happen in this game. We just have to put this behind us and come back fresh for the next game," Kohli said.
