The Indian cricket team have been in fine form recently. After sealing the three-match T20I series against West Indies 3-0, they won the three-match ODI series 2-0 thanks to a six-wicket victory in the third and final match at Port of Spain on Wednesday (August 14).
Kohli aced the run-chase with his 43rd century and Shreyas Iyer (65 off 41 balls), who scored his second half century in as many games, provided able company as India outclassed West Indies after Jadeja had earlier successfully kept the hosts from building on the flying start from the openers.
India will now take on West Indies in a two-match Test series that will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship.
The first Test match begins on August 22 at North Sound, Antigua.
