West Indies, mauled in the fourth ODI of the five match series in Mumbai by 224 runs will be looking to make amends and draw level at 2-2 in the final match in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday.
For India, captain Virat Kohli has been in fine form with the bat, scoring three hundreds in the first three matches before getting out cheaply in the fourth ODI. Rohit Sharma too has been stupendous form and celebrated his recall to the Test side with his seventh score of 150+ in ODIs.
Ambati Rayudu answered Team India’s SOS with his third ODI century and looks set for a long run at problematic number 4 slot for India.
As for the visitors there are a lot of areas where they can improve, bowling is certainly one after conceding more than 300 in last three matches. Batting which has been the saving grace so far capitulated at Brabourne with only Jason Holder holding doing well with a 50.
