Of Rohit Sharma's new landmark and other records

Last updated on: June 17, 2011 10:06 IST

Statistical highlights of the fifth and final one-dayer between India and the West Indies in Kingston.

# Rohit Sharma recorded a batting average of 128.50 in the series -- the highest by a player against West Indies in a bilateral series in the Caribbean, eclipsing the 111.00 by South Africa's Boeta Dippenaar - 111 in three innings, including a fifty.

# Rohit's batting average is his best in a competition/series in ODIs. He became the second Indian batsman after Mohammad Kaif to register three fifties against West Indies in a bilateral series in the West Indies. 

# Rohit's third half-century against West Indies is his eighth in ODIs. 

# Virat Kohli has taken his aggregate to 674 in 19 matches, including one hundred and five fifties, in 2011 - the most by an Indian. 

# Kohli's aggregate is exceeded only by three batsmen in ODIs this year - Shane Watson (890), Jonathan Trott (797) and Mohammad Hafeez (700).

# Andre Russell (4-35) produced his best bowling figures in ODIs, eclipsing the 4 for 49 against England at Chennai on March 17, 2011. 

# Russell's performance is the best by a West Indian bowler against India at Sabina Park in ODIs, bettering the 4 for 37 by Ravi Rampaul on June 28, 2009. 

# Russell (8 at 13.75) and Martin (8 at 17.87) are the two leading wicket-takers in the series for the West Indies. 

# Russell received the Man of the Match award for the second time in ODIs - both in the just concluded series.

# Virat Kohli (94 off 103 balls) has been a victim of nervous nineties for the second time in ODIs. He had posted 91 off 102 balls against Bangladesh at Dhaka on January 7, 2010.

# Kohli has posted his 15th half-century in ODIs - his fourth and the highest against West Indies, outstripping the 81 at Port of Spain on June 8, 2011. 

# Darren Bravo and Ramnaresh Sarwan were involved in a stand of 103 (unfinished) for the third wicket before the latter retired. This is West Indies' best ever for any wicket against India at Kingston, outstripping the 101 for the first wicket between Gayle and Morton on June 28, 2009. 

# Amit Mishra established a bowling record for most wickets in a bilateral series against West Indies in the Caribbean, managing 11 at an average of 18.09 in five matches.

# Darren Bravo (86 off 99 balls) recorded his career-best innings in ODIs, bettering the 79 against Sri Lanka at Colombo, SSC on February 6, 2011. 

# Darren Bravo has posted one half-century each against Canada, South Africa, India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. 

# Ramnaresh Sarwan (75 retired hurt off 94 balls) has posted his 11th half-century against India - his 38th in ODIs.
