Follow live score and updates from the 4th ODI:
Kuldeep finishes it off
India beat West Indies by 224 runs to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. Kuldeep Yadav castled Kemar Roach to clinch the match for his team and this was a brilliant performance from the hosts!
Stat Attack: Jason Holder
Jason Holder completes his 7th ODI half century
· His second vs India
· First in India
Fifty for Holder
Fifty for Jason Holder as the West Indies skipper reaches the milestone in 59 balls. However, just one wicket remaining for India to clinch this game and take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.
Holder nears 50
Jason Holder has been a single ray of hope in this abysmal batting performance by West Indies as he is inching towards his fifty. With one wicket remaining, it will not be something that will make the West Indies skipper much happy.
First wicket for Ravindra Jadeja as Keemo Paul is stumped for 19, West Indies 132/9. India are one wicket away from a comprehensive win and this has been a brilliant performance by the Indian bowlers.
Stat Attack: Rohit Sharma
Nurse edges one in the slips
· Rohit Sharma take 11 catch of 2018 in ODIs
· Most catches taken by an Indian fielder in this year
· He has taken most number of catches in this series
Kuldeep strikes again
It’s Kuldeep Yadav once again and his latest victim is Ashley Nurse who departs for 8, West Indies 101/8. The ball flew off the outside edge but Rohit Sharma was upto the task as he completed his third catch of the day.
Discomfort for Ashley Nurse
Ashley Nurse looks in pain as he called for the physio after playing a shot towards mid wicket. Looks like he has suffered an injury in his left pectoral muscle and that can be more bad news for West Indies. WI 91/7
Praise for Khaleel
Khaleel Ahmed has been more impressive today than at any other time I have seen him because he is swinging the ball back into the right hander. Makes a huge difference to the way a batsman approaches the bowler when there is swing— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 29, 2018
Kuldeep Yadav strikes as Fabian Allen departs for 10, West Indies 77/7. The ball took a thick outside edge and Rohit Sharma completed another good catch at the slips!
West Indies steady boat
Jason Holder and Fabian Allen have steadied the innings after the horrible start but looks like it is too little too late for them. With 301 runs needed from 188 balls, this is a huge ask for the visitors!
A weird decision by Virat Kohli as he has not gone with Kuldeep Yadav with West Indies struggling at 64/6. He is sticking with Ravindra Jadeja and although the visitors are still in a rough position, this period of play has not produced any wicket till now. WI 65/6
Dhoni misses out
Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s poor run continued in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) against the West Indies on Monday as the former skipper fell one run short of reaching 10,000 ODI runs for India.
Dhoni has accumulated a total of 10,173 runs in the 50-over format however, the record also contains the 174 runs which he smashed against the Africa XI, while representing the Asia XI in a three-match rubber in 2007.
West Indies six down
Third wicket for Khaleel Ahmed! Marlon Samuels is caught in the slips by Rohit Sharma, West Indies 56/6. Khaleel has been sublime in this match and he was able to induce the edge as West Indies lose their sixth wicket.
Khaleel destroys R Powell’s stumps
· Second single digit score for the batsman
· His performance in this series (22,18,4,1) – avg 11.20
· His 5th bowled dismissal in last 9 innings. Second in this series
Khaleel strikes again
What a beauty! Khaleel Ahmed strikes again as Rovman Powell is castled for 1, West Indies 47/5. It was a in-swinger from the youngster and Powell had no clue how to play it with the ball crashing into his off stump.
Stat Attack: Hetmyer
Khaleel removes the danger-man Hetmyer
· Hetmyer’s lowest score in this series
· First below 30 score for Hetmyer after 8 innings
· Third lowest score in 2018 in ODIs for him
Two boundaries for Marlon Samuels and India have made their first bowling change - Khaleel Ahmed for Jasprit Bumrah. Khaleel Ahmed strikes in his very first over and Shimron Hetmyer departs for 13, West Indies 45/4
The Hetmyer Show
Shimron Hetmyer has been in brilliant touch in this series and he is once again looking in great touch. He slammed Jasprit Bumrah for boundary through extra cover and guided the next ball for another four through mid-wicket. West Indies 33/3
Dream start for India
It has been a dream start for India with three wickets within 7 overs. Although it has been mainly due to some reckless running between the wickets from the Windies batsmen, the hosts will be really confident of their chances in this game.
West Indies three down
Another run out and this time, it is Virat Kohli who dismisses Kieran Powell for 4, West Indies 20/3. There was a major misunderstanding between the two batsmen and considering the level of Kohli’s fitness, Powell did not stand a chance.
Second wicket down
Second wicket goes down for West Indies as Shai Hope is run out for a duck, West Indies 20/2. It was a direct hit from Kuldeep Yadav and the most successful batsman for West Indies in this series departs for 0. Windies in big trouble!
Chanderpaul Hemraj departs for 14 as Bhuvneshwar Kumar takes the first wicket for India. It was a loose shot from the Windies opener and Ambati Rayudu made no mistake in completing the catch. West Indies 20/1
MS Dhoni was quite sure that Hemraj has edged one off Jasprit Bumrah but the ball actually grazed past the thigh pad and India have lost their review. West Indies 20/0 after 4 overs.
Swing and miss
The West Indies openers are finding it difficult to negotiate with the swing of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. However, Hemraj has decided to go after the Indian pacer and he hoisted the last ball of the third over for a six over long on. West Indies 20/0
Rohit notched up his 21st ODI century, which was his 9th ODI century in India and 5th this year. It was also his 19th century as an opener and in the process, smashed 500 boundaries as an opener. For more statistical highlights, click here.
India eye early wickets
Time for the run chase as Chanderpaul Hemraj and Kieran Powell will be opening the innings for West Indies. India have the cushion of a huge total and they will be looking to draw blood early in this encounter.
India end with 377
A bright finish by Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja have ensured that India race along and pause at 377 in their first innings. The innings was headlined by Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu who came together after Kohli was dismissed and dismantled the Windies attack
A very soft dismissal indeed. The ball is full and down the leg side, Dhoni looks to scoop it past short fine leg, but finds the man stationed there perfectly
How will Dhoni fare?
He has looked to play the big strokes, but the Windies bowlers have been smart with their lines and lengths. Dhoni needs to keep going for his shots!
Rayudu is run out
He tapped the ball to short cover, takes off for a quick run, but Allen is swift to get to the ball, picks it up and throws down the stumps. Ambati is short of his crease, has to depart after playing a stunning innings
Century for Ambati Rayudu
The right-hander taps the ball to short point, races across to the non-striker’s end, MS Dhoni makes his ground and Rayudu can exult now. Top innings, great acceleration and now a century to boot
Rayudu motoring along
He has become unstoppable at the moment. Takes Ashley Nurse from wide outside the off stump and belts him over deep mid-wicket. Enters the 90s.
Nurse dismisses Rohit
Hmmm, anticlimax! Rohit made room, Nurse threw the ball wide, he still went for the stroke, ball takes the top edge and flies across to Hemraj at short third man. Rohit has to take the walk back!
Rohit, you beauty
This is effortless, oozing class and inflicting misery at the same time. He has raced past 150, that 200 looks rather imminent at the moment. This is 7th score of more than 150 in ODIs
200-run partnership is raised for the 3rd wicket
Woof, what a stunning stroke, he moves across, sits down and swats a length ball from outside off over deep mid-wicket!
Windies wilting away
This is some onslaught by the Indian pair. They are blasting away at both ends and the Windies bowling attack is under immense pressure
Ball was a half-volley, it was in the slot, he creamed it clean over long off. So easy, so very elegant, so very Rohit Sharma!
So effortless from Rohit
These are ominous signs for West Indies. Rohit looks in control and that 200 looks imminent at the moment. He strikes at a rate of 177 after reaching his 100
Efficient 50 for Rayudu
Another innings, another box ticked as far as the number 4 position is concerned. Rayudu took his time, got going, and then found momentum as the innings progressed. Good innings, he needs to bat deep into the innings
Stat Attack - Rohit’s blazing knock
- India have never lost an ODI, whenever Rohit has scored 50 plus knock in the first innings in India
· India have won all five encounters involving Rohit’s fifty in the 1st innings
· 21 ODI ton for Rohit
· His second against Windies
· 9th ODI century in India
· 5th ODI century in 2018 –
· Sharma’s 19th century as an opener
· Today he also has smashed 500 fours as an opener
· Just second player to score 5 centuries in 2018 in ODIs – Virat has six
100 for Rohit
If Kohli doesn’t get you, Rohit will! It has been a composed innings by the right-hander, taking his time at the outset and then galloping along in cruise control mode. 21st ton and a much-needed one for India.
This is proving to be a great partnership
After a slow start, both batsmen are now imposing themselves on the game and are dominating the spinners with utmost ease. Jason Holder needs to make a move!
Rayudu trying to dominate the spinners
After sussing the conditions and the pitch, Ambati Rayudu is looking to dominate the spinners and get a move on. He holds the key along with Rohit Sharma, who is cruising along at the other end
Rohit is on the move
Not very smart from Rovman Powell, bowling it short and at his pace, these are easy pickings for Rohit Sharma, who is standing there at the crease and belting it away towards square leg and mid-wicket
Sedate phase of play
Nurse is bowling a tight spell and the Indian batsmen want to build a partnership and thus, the passage of play is meandering along.
Rayudu taking his time
Ambati Rayudu is critical today and he is taking his time getting used to the surface, relying on singles against the seamers.
50 for Rohit
Short ball, Rohit stands tall and slaps it away past mid-wicket. 37th ODI fifty for the right-hander, muted celebrations hint that he wants to bat big here
Rohit holds the key
Rohit Sharma now needs to bat right through the innings. He has to take this batting order along with him. Rayudu needs to step up and be counted once again and make this position his own
Virat Kohli is OUT
Yes, this is correct. Lovely ball from Kemar Roach, landing the ball on a length, getting it to seam away, Kohli comes forward, looks to guide it away to third man and edges it behind to the keeper.
Big blow for India, huge boost for Windies
Kohli and Rohit look to consolidate
With Dhawan back in the hut, it is now on skipper Kohli and deputy Rohit to stitch a quality partnership and ensure that the middle-order has a quality platform to take the attack to the Windies bowlers in the death overs. 100 up for the Indians here for the loss of just one wicket.
Concerted effort to bowl short against Kohli
There is a plan in place, the bowlers are trying to bang the ball in short, there are two fielders placed in the deep for the pull. Will it work?
Kohli on the move
Paul banged the ball in from around the wicket, however, the ball was down the leg side. Kohli swivelled and pulled it away fine, away from the man at deep fine leg
Virat Kohli takes guard
Length ball from Holder, Kohli comes forward and defends it solidly back down the pitch. There is a slip in position, good move by the Windies captain
Wow, that ball was short, Dhawan spanked it from the middle of the bat but finds the man at short mid-wicket perfectly. Once again, a promising innings is cut short. Keemo Paul gives him a send-off, the thigh five!
No assistance for the bowlers
Holder has given himself an extended spell and the effects showed. Two short and wide balls to end the over and the Indian openers dispatched them. The pitch looks beautiful for stroke making
Tight over by Nurse
The off-spinner seems to be in some pain, he is clutching his right shoulder, but has managed to bowl a good tight over, not allowing the batsmen to get after him
50 partnership up
Dhawan, after being troubled by Ashley Nurse in the series, has started positively against the off-spinner. He first stays back and cuts it past point and then comes forward to play a lofted drive over cover. The duo add 50 for the first wicket
Strokes coming to the fore
Shikhar Dhawan took his time and now he is forcing the pace, two lovely pickup strokes for two maximums. Rohit too looks in good touch and India are off to a brisk start
How things got rolling today
Reflection of a true pitch
The bounce is nice and honest, the batsmen have the pace to work with and thus, they are making merry at the moment. 2 sixes from the openers underline the freedom the batsmen will enjoy today. Work cut out for the bowlers.
Dhawan is being watchful at the moment
He has looked good in the series so far, but the scores have not reflected it. This is a chance for him to dig deep and play an innings of substance
The Dhawan and Rohit has overtaken Sehwag and Sachin to become the 2nd most successful opening partners for India in ODIs. They have scored 3924 runs in 87 matches.
Looks a good pitch
Rohit got going with a lofted scythe over point and cover as India are off and running. Dhawan needs to get into the innings as soon as possible
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan walk out
India need a good solid start and both Dhawan and Rohit need to dig in and start scoring runs. They have incentives as far the numbers are concerned.
They needs 40 runs to complete 4000 partnership runs in ODIs. Also, if they score 5 more runs, they will move past Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar to become India’s 2nd most successful opening partners ODIs.
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, K Khaleel Ahmed, Jasprit Bumrah
Windies (Playing XI): Kieran Powell, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shai Hope(w), Marlon Samuels, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder(c), Fabian Allen, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Keemo Paul
Virat Kohli wins the toss and India bat first.
“We are going to bat first. Looks like a nice and hard surface. There is not much of a dew in the second innings which is what we have heard. This is generally a high-scoring ground. We have got more depth in our batting today,” captain says at the toss.
Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja replace Rishabh Pant and Yuzvendra Chahal respectively.
Pitch report: Good one to bat on
“It’s a historic ground. First stadium to be bulit across any sport in India. This is a pitch which is always known for batting. Ball comes on pretty nicely to the bat. However, there is bereft of grass on this wicket. The spinners will get good grip. Lots of purchase for the batsmen as well. If the dew is not going to be a factor, India would prefer to chase. I think they will rely on their batting to try and chase whatever Windies will put on the board,” says Sunil Gavaskar.
Chance for Kedar Jadhav to seal his spot
There is no Hardik Pandya in the squad and this is chance Kedar Jadhav should capitalise on. He can chip in with overs in the middle phase and then is a handy batsman lower down the order. Kohli wants an extra option and Jadhav can be that player.
Cricket is back at the Brabourne
A total of 18 Tests, 8 ODIs and a solitary T20I have been played at the Brabourne Stadium. India defeated New Zealand in 1995, the only time they played an ODI here.
Windies sound confident after their win in Pune
“It was a very good performance by the boys. No one gave us a chance when we came but I think we’re showing the public out here that we are here to play,” said Ashley Nurse, who starred in Pune, at the post-match media conference.
The visitors look to be a formidable unit and a team with all the momentum at the moment.
Bhuvneshwar’s struggles this year
In 12 matches this year, Bhuvi has managed to pick up only 9 wickets. Also, he averages 55 and has been picking up wickets with a strike rate of 61.3, which is the worst for him in his career so far.
Virat Kohli would want a far better performance from his senior pro in Mumbai.
The MS Dhoni debate
MS Dhoni is averaging 25.20 in 2018 in ODIs – his worst year in terms of batting average. It is the only the second time when his average has come below 40.00, other one was 2016. He does remain an integral member of the ODI setup leading into the World Cup next year, but the seasoned campaigner needs to start scoring runs with the bat sooner rather than later.
Kohli wants more balance
After the loss in Pune, captain Virat Kohli conceded that his side lacked the balance and hence, Kedar Jadhav should walk into the team in Mumbai.
Chance for India to hit back
After the loss in Pune, the Indian team would want to regroup and get the combinations right for the fourth match of the series in Mumbai. The Windies side are no pushovers and Kohli and company need to be at their absolute best to come out on top.
Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the fourth match in the 5-match series between India and Windies.
