#3 Virat Kohli (c)
There is no batsman in the world currently who can replace this man. Kohli hit three consecutive centuries this series (four overall) to batter the West Indies bowling into submission.
His scores were 140, 157, 107, 16 and 33*, for a total of 453 runs at an average of 151. He was also the highest run-getter in the series, which naturally lets him occupy the No. 3 slot in the combined playing XI.
#4 Ambati Rayudu
India were in search of a quality No. 4 batsmen and they might have found one in Ambati Rayudu. Rayudu performed exceptionally well to score a century and a half-century in this series.
He also stitched together a vital 200-run partnership along with Rohit Sharma to take India's total to 377 in the 4th ODI. He got starts in the 2nd and the 3rd matches but failed to convert them into big innings.Published 02 Nov 2018, 00:23 IST
