20:02 hrs IST

Jadeja strikes

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.

19:17 hrs IST

No Kuldeep

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

19:10 hrs IST

18:31 hrs IST

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.

18:26 hrs IST

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.

18:19 hrs IST

Bhuvneshwar strikes

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

18:15 hrs IST

Review wasted

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.

18:08 hrs IST

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

Dhoni dismissed

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

17:15 hrs IST

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 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.

16:48 hrs IST

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!

16:43 hrs IST

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

This is some onslaught by the Indian pair. They are blasting away at both ends and the Windies bowling attack is under immense pressure

Majestic Rohit

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!

16:20 hrs IST

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

16:15 hrs IST

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

100 for Rohit

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!

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

15:04 hrs IST

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

14:56 hrs IST

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

14:53 hrs IST

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.

14:43 hrs IST

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?

14:39 hrs IST

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

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

14:27 hrs IST

Dhawan departs

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!

14:21 hrs IST

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

14:15 hrs IST

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

14:06 hrs IST

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

14:01 hrs IST

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

13:58 hrs IST

How things got rolling today

13:55 hrs IST

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.

13:50 hrs IST

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

13:40 hrs IST

Stat Attack

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.

13:36 hrs IST

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

13:25 hrs IST

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.

13:08 hrs IST

Playing XI

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

13:03 hrs IST

Toss: India

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.

12:54 hrs IST

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.

12:49 hrs IST

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.

12:39 hrs IST

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.

12:20 hrs IST

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.

12:03 hrs IST

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.

11:37 hrs IST

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.

11:14 hrs IST

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.

10:48 hrs IST

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.
