2. India’s tour of West Indies, 2011 – 3rd ODI:

Rohit Sharma got the Man of the Series award for his batting display in the series

In the third ODI at Antigua in 2011, West Indies had given India a target of 226 runs to chase on a bouncy pitch. India's top-order crumbled and the Men in Blue were struggling with 92 runs on the board and six wickets down when Rohit Sharma and Harbhajan Singh batted the team to glory.

Together, they added 88 runs, with Rohit remaining unbeaten on 86 and taking India to a three-wicket victory over the home team. His knock outplayed the Caribbean all-rounder Andre Russell's 92 off 64, and also gave India a 3-0 lead in the series.

Both Rohit and Harbhajan were lauded for playing sensible innings, with Rohit strategically going for one or two runs keeping the required rate in mind instead of going for the big shots. Rohit hit a boundary to take the team through the line.
