WestIndies Thrashed India !!

The West Indies gave captain Brian Lara a winning send-off in his final one-day international at his home ground in Trinidad, beating India by 19 runs.The win completed an impressive 4-1 series win over India.Lara made 36 before getting run out, but Chris Gayle (51), Ramnaresh Sarwan (52) and Dwayne Bravo (62 not out) ensured the West Indies reached 255-6.Virender Sehwag hit 95 but got little help as India lost six wickets for 66 and were all out for 236 off 48 overs.Opener Sehwag's 95 off 103 deliveries put his side in charge but an aggressive spell from Jerome Taylor swung the momentum back to the West Indies.He dismissed Sehwag, Mohammad Kaif and Suresh Raina in the space of four overs and Lara then turned to spinners Dave Mohammed and Chris Gayle to wrap up the last three wickets for just six runs.The Windies innings got off to the worse start imaginable, with opener Sewnarine Chattergoon finding himself bowled by Ajit Agarkar with his first ball.Lara hit Harbhajan for a straight six but was run out after slipping.Gayle hit 10 fours in 51 and other fifties from Sarwan and Bravo boosted the total.
