Wins series win
After the defeat of the West Indies team’s Test series defeat to India, the speculation was that Team India would wash the same in the one-day series. But the Caribbean team made one-day series exciting by its strong game. So exciting that now when the final match of the series is to be played on Thursday, the Indian team will have to win this last match to win this series. In the four matches of this series, Team India is ahead 2-1, which means that even if India loses the match, it will not be defeated in the series but the West Indies side will save the series. By the way, India had lost the last ODI series against South Africa in 2015 and since then, their invincible campaign is going on in the country. Virat Kohli-led Indian team returned after losing in Pune, in the fourth ODI in Mumbai, the opposition team was truncated by 224 runs and the team would hope that they will maintain the target in the fifth ODI also. However, rain has also been predicted during this match. Looking at the World Cup in England in June next year, the two teams are trying to decide their team combination through this series.
Look at Dhoni
Kohli and Rohit Sharma are in the best form and in the series, three and two hundreds have been rooted. Ambati Rayudu, who got the captain’s support, also had a century in the last match. The left-hander has failed to perform as expected. Opener Shikhar Dhawan has not been able to take advantage of the good start, while veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also facing a poor form with the bat. Dhoni, who missed the place in the Indian team announced for the T20 series in Australia, would also be expected to do well with the bat while he is performing well behind the wicket.
Dhoni needs only one run to complete 10000 runs from India. He scored 124 runs on behalf of the Asia XI.
Strong bowling attack
The return of Jaspreet Bumrah has strengthened India’s bowling attack and they have proven their worth in the last two matches. Young left-arm fast bowler Khalil Ahmed bowled superbly at the Brabourne Stadium. Kohli will hope to do better than Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has not been able to live up to expectations. Spinners have troubled the Caribbean batsmen. Most batsmen of West Indies have been battling against Kuldeep Yadav while Yuvraj Singh was ousted from the last match and Ravindra Jadeja was given a place in his place. On the other hand, after the loss of the Test matches, the guest team performed in the ODI fluctuations is.

West Indies batting is not light
Shimron Hetmayer and Inky Hope have been the most affected. Both have so far scored a century each. Captain Jason Holder has shown that he can face Indian spinners well, but other batsmen have been battling. The holder will hope that his team will wipe out India from winning the series by winning the last match with a single performance. Off-spinner Ashley Nurse, who was consistently performing well, was hurt in Mumbai and it is doubtful to play in his last match. In his absence, the prospects of the West Indies may be shock.
