It was a good series for captain Shikhar Dhawan with the bat as he scored 168 runs in the 3 matches that included 2 fifties.

Dhawan, who was the stand-in captain for he series, spoke how India with a young team was top class and that they outclassed hosts West Indies in the 3-match series. It needs to be mentioned here that the left-hander became the first Indian captain to lead the side to a whitewash in an ODI series in the West Indies.

“Before I end this talk, I would like everyone to stand up, come close. Who are we?” Dhawan asked as he ended his speech as the rest of the side formed a huddle in the dressing room. “Champions!” responded his teammates replied in unison.


“Whatever we discussed before the series, we are a process-oriented team. You guys are young, you guys have a vision, and you’ll grow much bigger than what you are today. You have already started taking those steps, you guys will go a long way,” Dhawan said in the video.

Rahul Dravid spoke very highly of Shikhar Dhawan after he led this side in the 3-match ODI series. “We came here with a really young team. A lot of the guys who played in the England series didn’t play here. It was a really young team, but the way you guys have responded, the way you have handled the pressure, the professionalism, a couple of tight games, to get on the right side of those high-pressure games with some terrific performances was a really great achievement for a very young team,” Dravid said in the video.
