India will eye for a series win to break and enter records in Ahmedabad

Rohit Sharma led Team India will enter the stadium in Ahmedabad in the dead rubber encounter with West Indies to whitewash the visiting team. With the whitewash, Rohit Sharma could join the Captains’ Elite List.

Team India will aim to draw final blood in a dead rubber encounter in Ahmedabad against West Indies on Friday. Rohit Sharma led side has already climbed two ladders above West Indies, notching the series 2-0, but what remains as another feat to be achieved on Friday is the whitewash series win against a visiting team, which could happen nearly after nine years before the Indian side whitewashed the bilateral five-match series against the visiting Sri Lankan side in 2014.

With this feat, Rohit Sharma could join the Captains’ Elite List, being ruled by Kapil Dev, Dilip Vengsarkar, Mohammad Azharuddin, MS Dhoni, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, and Ajinkya Rahane. With yet another record awaiting to welcome the fighting spirit of the Indian side after a fiasco in South Africa in 2022, the final ODI will be a binge-watch of trials and tribulations. The Indian team will look forward to carrying the tempo of victories but the cricketing giant wouldn’t miss the opportunity to bank on its bench strength.
